This one took me by surprise! It’s enchanting, similar to the uncanny way of The Ten Thousand Doors of January and Strange the Dreamer (although I didn’t love it quite as much as those two). I think the vibe of this book was my favorite part! It’s very mysterious, and magical in that strange way that magical realism has, but without being nonsensical like most magical realism. It’s hard to talk about this without giving anything away – I went […]

This was a book club pick, and something I would have never touched in a million years on my own. I have never been a fan of historical fiction and usually avoid it at all costs. So, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by this one! The audiobook was FANTASTIC! I didn’t enjoy the flashbacks a whole lot, because that’s where the historical part really shone through. I didn’t care all that much about Hazel and James or Aubrey and […]

Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

While we fight, there is hope. What a BEAUTIFUL ending to an amazing series!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on an eARC of this book before its release (thanks, Christy!!), but I never got around to reviewing it because I was wedding planning. I had pre-ordered the audiobook because the Aurora Cycle audiobooks are some of my faves, so when it came out I listened to it as a re-read! Aurora Burning left all our beloved characters […]

Oh look, another dragon book that utterly disappointed me. *long suffering sigh* First of all, STOP. COMPARING. BOOKS. TO. OTHER. BOOKS. This is compared to Red Rising and Game of Thrones in the blurb. THIS BOOK IS LITERALLY NOTHING LIKE RED RISING, which is a glorious masterpiece of a series. Or Game of Thrones, other than having dragons. This book has absolutely nothing in common with either, and is even more pitiful in comparison. I’m so tired of that marketing […]

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 […]
