ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Trigger warning: Rape, abuse, animal killing I have NO clue what I was expecting when I picked this book up – I know I read the synopsis when I added it but for some reason I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a ‘me’ book. Actually, I was quite sure it wasn’t going to be and I don’t even know why. The result? I was blown away! In the very beginning I was HOOKED, and positively loving it. […]

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

“Ours is a love stronger than fear and deeper than the sea.” Soo this makes me really sad to say but this story was really boring for most of the book?? *cries* Looking back I really can’t tell you what actually happened because NOTHING HAPPENED. After Flame in the Mist I expected much, much more. Not to say that I didn’t like it – I did still enjoy it for the most part because Renee’s writing is lovely, and I […]

Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Caution: Review contains spoilers for Strange the Dreamer! “Wishes don’t just come true. They’re only the target you paint around what you want. You still have to hit the bullseye yourself.” Holy CRAP this book was SO. BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved it just as much as the first one! And, of course, just like the first one this one is tragic and heartbreaking. But GLORIOUS. I loved every second! Laini’s writing is gorgeous and just draws you in. Even when nothing […]

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 […]

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

BEWARE: This book includes heavy elements such as physical and emotional abuse, non-consentual sex in an arranged marriage (basically, rape), and To touch upon the topic of abuse: I feel Gaughen handled it very well. It was never romanticized – in fact, our main character didn’t let it happen or pretend it didn’t happen. She stood up against it the best she could – knowing that she couldn’t really do anything because she was basically trapped – and verbalized against it. […]
