ARC Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

ARC Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

HOLY CRAP this book blew me away!!! I really enjoyed Enchantment of Ravens (even though I didn’t think I would), so I knew I’d love this one too. I didn’t expect to love it so much, giving me my first 5 star book in 4 months! The concept was AMAZING!! Our main character, Elisabeth, works as an apprentice in a magical library full of sentient grimoires. Sentient magical books, you guys. MAGICAL. BOOKS. Has there ever been a more perfect book for bookworms?! […]

Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

It’s been a really long time since I read a book that I hated so much that I legit wanted to throw across the room. And for whatever reason, I couldn’t stop reading it??? It was like watching a train wreck, it was SO. TERRIBLE. but I just couldn’t look away. (Or maybe I’m becoming a softie since I apparently have lost my ability to ruthlessly DNF anything I’m not enjoying….) This book was honestly terrible. The romance was terrible. […]

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic. SQUAD GOALS!! I loved this band of misfits so much! I adored every single one of the characters, and they each had their own distinct personalities. Switching POVs doesn’t usually work for me, but it did in this book! You get to see seven different points of view, which sounds intimidating but it really works here. It gives you a feel for each of the […]

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

I will show him what a woman can do. In the beginning, I was enjoying it but I wasn’t engrossed. The writing was positively stunning, and I was intrigued by the world, but it wasn’t grabbing me for some reason (I blame this stupid reading slump that won’t go away). It wasn’t until Benyamin and Kifah showed up that I realized that was hopelessly hooked. Talk about squad goals!!! I freaking LOVED the banter and camaraderie that the gang – […]

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

What I liked: The storytelling. It was absolutely brilliant! I love how things were unveiled and it kind of throws you for a loop. Secrets, lies, and betrayal! I love how each of the queens had something to hide, and their secrets slowly came to light. They were each breaking the queenly law in some way. The world. The concept of the world was really interesting, albeit a bit vague – four distinct quadrants of Quadara, four ruling queens. I’ll […]

Review: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

Review: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

This was such a great debut sci-fi! It was definitely right up my alley. I went in not really knowing much and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! The beginning started out with a bang – I actually read this in the middle of a reading slump so I needed something to grab me right away and this one definitely did. I absolutely love books about finding and colonizing new planets. I love seeing what authors imagine the […]
