ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

The dragon is rising. Three things Jessi loves: Japanese culture Julie Kagawa Inuyasha I knew I would love this book before I ever picked it up, because 1) Julie is my second favorite author of all time, and 2) I LOOOVE Japanese culture. There are not enough Japanese books in YA! In fact, the only other one I know of off the top of my head is my fave series, The Lotus Wars (by Jay Kristoff who happens to be […]

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Even the darkest stars shone here, so far from the earth. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. I hadn’t heard much about it, but a lot of my bookish friends loved it. I think going in with little expectations and little knowledge of what the book was about worked in my favor, because I really enjoyed it!! The main complaint I have about this book is that it is really slow. Not much happens other […]

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

To be honest, I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would! It was one of those books where you enjoy it while reading but it doesn’t necessarily stick with you or leave a lasting impression. It’s definitely not a memorable book, and sadly it was kind of generic. I really, really hate switching POVs in pretty much any book. Two is bad enough, but three is even worse!! It makes it so hard to connect to anyone, and usually it’s […]

ARC Review: Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis

ARC Review: Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis

The dead don’t lie. I have loved everything I’ve ever read that Beth Revis has written, so this was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases. And holy WOW, it did not disappoint!!! I’ve gotta say, the beginning of this book was a major struggle for me. It started off horrifically, painfully slow – to the point that I had thoughts of DNFing! I spent about 50 pages forcing my way through on blind faith that it would get better because […]

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

After seeing everyone RAVING about how amazing the sequel was and how it was just sooo much better than the first, I had some pretty high hopes. I didn’t love Caraval or anything – I was super underwhelmed by the ending, but I did enjoy it for the most part because of the intriguing world. However, this book was not only a struggle, but a MAJOR disappointment. I feel like I read a totally different book than everyone else did. […]

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

The stories in this one were extremely hit or miss for me. While there were a few I loved, there were also a lot I didn’t love. I did enjoy the culture and diversity in this one, though! These stories feature a myriad of POC and LGBTQ+ characters. I also quite loved the girl power that this book had going for it! Favorite stories: Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yovanoff, Why They Watch Us Burn by Elizabeth May, Death […]
