I absolutely LOVED the premise and the Welsh mythology!! So awesome! The bone houses, the Tylwyth Teg (fae), the pwca, and the story of the cauldron were so unique and intriguing. That was definitely my favorite part! This book started off really strong! I was super interested in the bone houses and the mythology aspect, and it wasn’t like anything I’d read before. (I’d also heard all about the goat so I was ready for that hehe!) It flagged a […]

Okay, so to understand why I picked this up and why it was so poignant for me, I have to get really personal for a minute. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which has spread to his bone, brain, and kidneys; he recently stopped chemo and was given 3-6 weeks to live. I’ve been looking for books dealing with loss, and this one popped up in my search a few times and I passed it by because, […]

For me this is one of those books that you enjoy for the most part while reading, but don’t ever think about again after you finish. It was good, not great (just like her Lunar Chronicles were for me personally). Honestly, it kind of felt like a rip off of both The Boys and Steelheart. It didn’t particularly have anything super unique as far as superheroes & villains go to bring to the table. I also didn’t care much for […]

I honestly have NO idea why I put off finishing this series for so long!! I read the second book way back in 2012, and this one came out early 2014, but I just…never read it. Oops. I suck at series. I guess part of me thought I was going to be let down? I’d heard some really mixed things about this last book, so that probably led to me putting it off too. I shouldn’t have worried! Although, I […]

I confess I may have waited a bit too long to write this review. I’ve already forgotten a lot of the book >.< I’m not the biggest contemporary fan, but every once in a while I need a cute and fluffy book to give me a break from the fantasy I usually stick to. And this one totally worked! It was adorable, and I enjoyed the banter between the main characters. I am also a fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope! […]

This book is a bit hard for me to review, because I had some pretty mixed feelings about it. First of all, I absolutely LOVED the dogs and the search and rescue aspect, that was definitely the selling point! I love animals in stories, and the dogs were a forefront in this one. I also really loved the wilderness setting – it actually reminded me hardcore of Homeward Bound! But, if you remove those two elements that I was quite […]
