We are daughters of the wood. It’s hard to review this one, because I loved the concept but I felt quite indifferent about it in general. I was excited to read it because I loved The Wicked Deep, but this one fell short. My main issue was complete apathy. I didn’t care about what was happening, I didn’t care about the characters, nothing. The magic and mystery were intriguing, though, and that’s what kept me going. I saw a few people […]

Why did I wait so long to read this?! I guess I thought I wouldn’t like it – it had some mixed reviews, and recently I’ve seen mostly bad ones, so I started questioning whether it would be a me book or not. But it totally was! I love how strange and haunting this book was – it’s definitely a darker fantasy. It pushed the boundaries of magical realism, without being annoying and full of wtfery like the genre usually is […]

You are made of dreams and this world is not for you. Okay, so I loved the Raven Boys series, and Ronan was my FAVORITE character out of the whole series. So imagine my elation when I found out that he had his own series coming out!!!!! I was kinda worried going in that this wouldn’t amount to the very tall pedestal of hype that I had raised it on in my head, but IT DID. OH, it did. RONAN […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]

If you know me, you know I am a HUGE sucker for Asian Fantasy. Especially if it’s Japanese. And there’s so few of them! This had everything I love about Japanese fantasy – oni, yokai, kitsune, miko, Shinto shrines, and plenty of glorious Japanese culture. (Which I am positively obsessed with.) That was definitely my favorite part of this book! It was super easy to picture everything – you know how some books tell you they’re in a certain country/place, […]

Wow, what a wild ride!! This book was explosive and action packed from start to finish! The second book dragged in the beginning, but this one definitely did NOT have that problem. There was never a dull moment! I have to say, Emily Suvada never disappoints when it comes to dropping bombs. So many surprises! “We’re both monsters, Jun Bei. That’s what they made us into. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do good in this world.” Jun Bei was ruthless […]
