Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

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. […]

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Okay, so I think the hype monster got me on this one. Or maybe because I was so blown away by the second and third books that I was just expecting more? I was disappointed in this one. I had sky high expectations, and it didn’t deliver. Honestly? I was kinda bored. I feel like not a whole lot happened – it was mostly just Juliette adjusting to life as Supreme Commander. There was little to no plot in this […]

Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Wow, talk about disappointing. Honestly, this is probably one of the most disappointing books I’ve ever read in all my life. I love dragon stories. And the fastest way to ruin a dragon story is, gee, to NOT PUT ANY DRAGONS IN IT. Where were the dragons I was promised? WHERE?! (And I quote, from Jodi herself: “Lots and lots of dragons.” UTTER. BULLSHIT.) I mean, it had some dragons. But most of the dragon stuff was just talking about dragons. And […]

Review: Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

Review: Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

What a fabulous high fantasy full of intrigue, secrets, and lies! The concept was awesome. There were magists that controlled/enforced magic and made spells, yet “wilder” magic was outlawed and punishable by death. I freaking LOVED the drakes! And Kate’s ability to control and speak to animals! Those were my absolute favorite parts. As soon as the nightdrakes were mentioned, I was hooked. I wanted to see more of them! And I was not disappointed! Kind of sad that they […]
