If you enjoyed These Broken Stars, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too! It had a similar feel despite the fact that the world and concept was pretty different. I loved the setting and the concept! There’s a land of magic and gods on the ground, where only one remaining divinity still reigns. All the rest of the gods are believed to have abandoned the land of magic to the sky, but there’s a hidden city of science in the sky and […]

After spending nearly a month trying to get into this one and fighting with myself over picking it back up, I’ve decided it’s time to let go. Which makes me SUPER bummed, because it was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases!! I wanted so badly to love this one, but I made it 200 pages in and I was still struggling hardcore and feeling really apathetic toward it. It started off really strong – I was enjoying the writing, […]

This book was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was DYING to get my hands on it, and was ready to start begging (okay, I kind of begged in buy/sell/trade groups, trying to get someone to trade with me lol), and I finally got lucky enough that the publisher responded to my ARC request with a Netgalley widget! Yay! Did it live up to the hype? Yes and no. Honestly, I was a little disappointed in it overall. […]

The book I read was an uncorrected proof. Any quotes used may be subject to change. Color me disappointed, because I was really looking forward to this one. The concept is incredible! Bad people’s souls are reincarnated as monsters called Kehoks in their next life, and basically take the form of a chimera. People race them, and the Kehok that wins gets redemption for their soul. It’s so cool! However, this book fell really flat for me. My main issue […]

Holy wow!! Night of the Dragon was everything I loved about Shadow of the Fox, and everything I expected from Soul of the Sword. I was disappointed in the second book – it felt like not much really happened, was lacking the action of the first book, and was overall just underwhelming for a Julie book. (I have NEVER rated anything else of hers under 5 stars! Wth!) It had some serious second book syndrome going for it, which is […]

This one is rather hard for me to review, because I had some pretty mixed feelings about it. First, I just want to say that the concept is EPIC!!! Alchemy! Phoenix horses!!! I loved the riders’ use of specific alchemical components to basically upgrade their horses. The concept was the shining gem of this book, and ultimately the main thing that kept me interested. I adored the horses and everything about them. The race was cool, too – it had […]
