I’m so sad that I didn’t love this one. The hype for this book is UNREAL! Everyone talks about how beautiful the writing is, but it didn’t wow me. In fact, I found this story to be somewhat dull. I loved the idea of the magic system, but the middle got pretty boring when Lark was in the castle. I didn’t care at all for the romance, either. There was zero chemistry between Lark and Tiras, and it borderlined controlling […]

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 […]

This book was SO BLAND. There was really nothing special about the writing or the characters. The concept was interesting, and was about the only thing this book really had going for it. But honestly? It just felt like a straight rip off of Darkest Minds. An adult version, and not nearly as good of one. The characters are all flat with no personality to speak of, and I didn’t care about any of them or anything that was happening. Color […]

I have never read a book with an autistic MC (that I know of), and now that I have, I wonder if maybe I’m on the spectrum. Because I have never related to a main character as much as I related to Seelie. She’s brash, and stubborn, and reactive, and feels too much…and I honestly saw myself in her. She’s also super socially awkward (like to the point of it being painful, lmao) and shies away from human interaction and […]

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 […]

This was actually my second time reading this book, because to be honest I didn’t remember much of anything about it the first time I read it, oops. I did really enjoy it though, and I enjoyed it the second time through as well! I love the Italian setting and culture in this book – it made me SO HUNGRY!! Lmao! The world in this book is so atmospheric and magical. I really enjoyed the stories of the Wicked (princes […]
