I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book for months, and had to wait patiently (not) for my library to order it. Then I got it, and I was nervous to finally read it, because what if I got my hopes up too high? What if it wasn’t worth the hype? There were VERY mixed reviews on Goodreads, after all. Either love or hate, with almost nothing in between. I am extremely happy to say that I fell […]

Although I don’t read it much, I thoroughly enjoy high fantasy. And my first thought upon opening this book? OHMIGAWD A MAP!! It’s sad how thrilled I was to see it. I just hate reading high fantasy where all those made-up place names are thrown at me and I have no way of getting a visual. So right away this book earned brownie points with me! Celaena was a great lead. She was kick-ass and strong, yet she was still […]

I found this book to be a bit disappointing. Maybe I was just expecting too much out of it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it. But it didn’t wow me like I thought it would. The beginning was very discouraging for me. There were so many terms and made up words thrown around without explanation that I very nearly gave up on it because I didn’t know what the hell was going on. I really think the world should […]

I was sure before I even picked this one up that I was going to love it. And in a rare instance, I was right! Many times when I go in with high hopes, I get disappointed. But that was not the case with Defiance. The fact that I could connect enough for it to actually make me cry earned major bonus points for this book. I even knew the bad thing was going to happen, because I saw it coming, […]

This story was beautiful and enchanting. I loved all the magical beings mentioned; sylphs, centaurs, trolls, and my favorite – dragons. I have always had an affinity for dragons, so that aspect alone made me like it even more. Also, I love originality and Incarnate had it in bounds. The idea of the same souls being reincarnated lifetimes over, the being known as ‘Janan’ (their God), and the unique take on sylphs and dragons. Everything about the world created was […]
