Before we get into this shit show: THIS IS NOT YA. There is lots of sexual content in this book. If you want an angsty smutty romance with zero plot, LOOK NO FURTHER. WORST case of Second Book Syndrome I’ve read in as long as I can remember. This year must be all about sequels that disappointed me! This one is the worst yet, though. I think this is the single most disappointing sequel I’ve ever read. I loved the […]

Buckle up, ladies and gents. Because I have a LOT of complaints. Firstly, I want to say that I listened to the audiobook, so some of my spellings may be off. I thought the MC was ‘Elsbeth’ for almost the whole book, until I finally looked at the synopsis; so I’m sure the other character names are probably spelled weird too lmao. Secondly, WHY DO I ALWAYS LET THE HYPE MONSTER GET ME?! WHY AM I ALWAYS A BLACK SHEEP?! […]

I wish I could simply enjoy the books that everyone else enjoys. *long suffering sigh* I mean, it wasn’t bad, it was just generic AF. Like every single other generic high fantasy book out there. I’ve read the same story a thousand times, and this one didn’t bring anything new to the table. There was literally nothing original in this book and nothing at all to stand out in my mind. The whole thing was entirely forgettable. I was actually enjoying […]

I have very mixed feelings about this book. It’s definitely not Howard’s best work. (Stain is FANTASTIC, read that instead.) I loved the premise and setting – I’ve never read a Phantom of the Opera retelling, and don’t see many of them to begin with. Howard’s take on incubus/succubus lore was really cool! I also loved Rune’s song and abilities and how they worked. However, the romance utterly ruined it for me. The soulmate trope has to be done a […]

Okay, so this book was pretty hit-or-miss for me. I didn’t like it in the beginning – the MC was royally pissing me off – then the middle was really good, but the ending got rocky again. The Faire was by far the best part and where this book shines. The nerd in me loved the setting, it made me miss Ren Faire! So, the beginning. I honestly hated Emily. She was petulant and childish, and sorry but she was fucking stupid. […]

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a fan of contemporary and I rarely read it. Actually, this was my first contemporary romance all year, oops. I needed a break from my High Fantasy rut (and reading slump) and this was just the book for it since it’s set at Christmastime! It’s not something I’d usually have looked twice at, but Disney sent me a copy a while back, and then it showed up in my suggestions when I […]
