Review: Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff

Review: Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR GODSGRAVE I am the war you cannot win. Holy SHIT. I basically sobbed through the last like quarter of this book, heh. This book wrecked my feels! Jay, you’ve done it yet again!! We all knew going in that Mia was going to die in the end. However, we didn’t know the deets, and I’m quite happy with how everything played out. It was bittersweet! “You kiss like you kill, Mia Corvere.” “And how’s that?” “With finesse.” […]

Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

To be honest, I don’t remember much of this book. I put off reviewing this because after finishing I felt meh about the book and didn’t have much to say about it, so I just never wrote a review. And now I’ve already forgotten a lot of it, even though I just read it two months ago. It just wasn’t a memorable story. Actually, it was quite generic. Super bland, basic dystopian. It felt a lot like a Hunger Games […]

Mini Reviews: Books I Never Got Around to Reviewing

Mini Reviews: Books I Never Got Around to Reviewing

I never reviewed this way back when I read it, but I just discovered a half-assed review draft on the blog and thought I’d transfer it here. Cuz let’s face it, I’m never gonna actually write a real review *shrugs* I really enjoyed the movie, but when I saw it I was thinking to myself, “I read the book but I don’t remember ANY of this???” So I don’t know if they changed a lot or if my memory is […]

ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

Not gonna lie, I am hella disappointed in this book. This was my most anticipated 2019 debut, and my second most anticipated non-sequel release of 2019. Perhaps my hopes were just too high, but when I heard magical, elemental crows I was STOKED to read it. What an awesome-sounding concept! And indeed it was – I loved the crows and how the different types worked: sun crows for healing, earth and storm crows for crops, fire crows, battle crows, shadow crows…it was seriously […]

ARC Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

ARC Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

HOLY CRAP this book blew me away!!! I really enjoyed Enchantment of Ravens (even though I didn’t think I would), so I knew I’d love this one too. I didn’t expect to love it so much, giving me my first 5 star book in 4 months! The concept was AMAZING!! Our main character, Elisabeth, works as an apprentice in a magical library full of sentient grimoires. Sentient magical books, you guys. MAGICAL. BOOKS. Has there ever been a more perfect book for bookworms?! […]

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. […]
