Okay, so this book took me foreeeever.  I started this behemoth September 20th. Didn’t finish until November freaking 22nd. TWO. MONTHS. To be fair, I was planning my wedding and was balls deep in wedding stuff (which was November 6th, and my glorious husband messaged Jay about it and he actually recorded a “happy marriage” video for me *insert squealing, puppy eyes, and tears*) so I didn’t have much time to read. Plus, this book is HEAVY. It probably took […]

I enjoyed this one while I was reading, but even a week after finishing I had already forgotten most of the details. I liked the viking aspect, the gods, and the setting; and the pacing was quick, which made for an easy read. I also found the prose to be enjoyable and engaging. But sadly the characters didn’t do much for me. I didn’t connect to any of them, and the romance moved a bit too quickly for me. I’m […]

I had seen the movie already, so I almost didn’t pick this book up. And while reading, I kept thinking that I was wasting my time because it was basically exactly how I remembered the movie (I’ll get to that misconception in a minute!). I did enjoy it for the most part, though! The writing style was really juvenile – this feels a lot more like MG than YA – but the story itself is good. I confess that I […]

I was born of this dust, and I am never going to escape it. This is the book I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it! In the sea of 3 star books I’ve read in the past few months, it was refreshing to read something that sucked me in, and I needed that. The cover and synopsis drew me in when I first heard about this one, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it because Bowman’s books […]

Okay, so I let this review go WAY too long! I don’t know why, I loved this book just like I love all of Jay’s other stuff. But for some reason, it didn’t stick with me like the first two books did. I even listened to it via audio as a re-read and STILL barely remember anything *hides* Not to say I didn’t enjoy the shit out of it – I definitely did! As always, Jay grabs you by the […]

I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]
