Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

It’s been a really long time since I read a book that I hated so much that I legit wanted to throw across the room. And for whatever reason, I couldn’t stop reading it??? It was like watching a train wreck, it was SO. TERRIBLE. but I just couldn’t look away. (Or maybe I’m becoming a softie since I apparently have lost my ability to ruthlessly DNF anything I’m not enjoying….) This book was honestly terrible. The romance was terrible. […]

Review: Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Review: Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Upon finishing this book, the main emotion I felt was relief. It seriously took me thirty days to finish this book, you guys. THIRTY. DAYS. I can’t think of any other book that I’ve ever spent more than a couple of weeks on that I didn’t DNF (or hate, it did take me three months to finish Brisingr and it was AWFUL).  Me after finishing: It fucking felt like 84 years anyway XD Honestly, this book was way, WAY too long. Waaaaaay too […]

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

What I liked: The storytelling. It was absolutely brilliant! I love how things were unveiled and it kind of throws you for a loop. Secrets, lies, and betrayal! I love how each of the queens had something to hide, and their secrets slowly came to light. They were each breaking the queenly law in some way. The world. The concept of the world was really interesting, albeit a bit vague – four distinct quadrants of Quadara, four ruling queens. I’ll […]

Review: Stain by A.G. Howard

Review: Stain by A.G. Howard

Holy crap, where do I start?! This book blew me away! I was hopelessly hooked from the very beginning. This book got to me in the very best way! This story is so beautiful and enchanting, and Howard’s lyrical prose drew me in! The premise was absolutely BRILLIANT – I loved every single aspect of it, from the uniquely dark and magical (and sometimes twisted!) world that Howard painted; down to the prophecy of the Prince and Princess and the […]

Review: The Girl King by Mimi Yu

Review: The Girl King by Mimi Yu

Let me start this off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Asian Fantasy. It’s actually my favorite sub-genre and I crave more of it. I was super excited for this book because not only is it AF, it’s #ownvoices! (If you’re looking for some amazing #ownvoices Asian Fantasy I highly recommend Shadow of the Fox and Girls of Paper & Fire!) Sadly, this book fell flat for me. But, the one thing I did love was the Asian aspect […]

Review: City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Review: City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

This book is rather difficult for me to review, because in the beginning I had really mixed feelings about it. I didn’t love it quite like I’d hoped to. My girl Erin (@asthebookends) LOVED this book so I was expecting to be blown away and maybe my hopes were just too high. I actually put it off for a few weeks when I was planning on picking it up because I was afraid it’d send me into a reading slump […]
