This was a book club pick, and something I would have never touched in a million years on my own. I have never been a fan of historical fiction and usually avoid it at all costs. So, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by this one! The audiobook was FANTASTIC! I didn’t enjoy the flashbacks a whole lot, because that’s where the historical part really shone through. I didn’t care all that much about Hazel and James or Aubrey and […]

This was good, not great. It was a quick read, and fairly entertaining, but it felt kind of juvenile to me. I feel like there was more focus on drama and romance than the puzzles we were promised. All of the boys felt like the exact same person (with extra jerkness to Grayson, maybe) and I was continuously having issues telling them apart. I was also confused about the love triangle (square??) and the fact that every freakin’ dude in […]

Holy CRAP this book was super creepy! This is my third Kingfisher novel, and by now I know 100% that I am a huge fan of her horror books. This one wasn’t *quite* as good as Hollow Places, but it was pretty close! I can’t believe it only has an average rating of 3.64 on Goodreads :( Just like in Hollow Places, there was humor to this book that I wasn’t expecting out of a horror, which was a pleasant […]

Holy crap, this book was epic!! It’s been a while since I enjoyed a book so much. This is one of my favorite worlds I’ve read in quite some time, too. It was super dark and disturbing! It was also perfectly weird and quirky. Basically, this book was right up my alley. This is the second Kingfisher book I’ve read – the first being Nettle and Bone, which I enjoyed for the most part but not nearly this much. This […]

This book was SO BLAND. There was really nothing special about the writing or the characters. The concept was interesting, and was about the only thing this book really had going for it. But honestly? It just felt like a straight rip off of Darkest Minds. An adult version, and not nearly as good of one. The characters are all flat with no personality to speak of, and I didn’t care about any of them or anything that was happening. Color […]

Are you a fan of space books? Are you also a fan of the movie Ghost Ship? LOOK NO FURTHER! This book is for you! And also, this book was 100% for me. I am a huge space horror fan, and it’s sooo hard to find them. Or good ones, at least. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022, so I was super jazzed when I got it as an eARC in late 2020 from NetGalley. And […]
