Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Even the darkest stars shone here, so far from the earth. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. I hadn’t heard much about it, but a lot of my bookish friends loved it. I think going in with little expectations and little knowledge of what the book was about worked in my favor, because I really enjoyed it!! The main complaint I have about this book is that it is really slow. Not much happens other […]

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I feel very, very alive. It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I read this book, so it’s hard to review it! I’d forgotten a lot of it so I had to skim the book to remember. I did really enjoy it while I was reading though! The story is super cute. “But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.” There’s something […]

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 […]

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

I’ll always come back for you. I promise you on iron and stars. This book started off horribly slow, but did get more interesting as it went on. It was good for a debut. It was also an interesting mix of sci-fi and high fantasy – while it felt very strongly like a sci-fi, the setting was HF. My main complaint is that this book was horribly, painfully predictable. It also felt rather generic. It’s a retelling of Anastasia, which […]

Harper Summer 2016 Tour: The Hunt by Megan Shepherd Review & Giveaway

Harper Summer 2016 Tour: The Hunt by Megan Shepherd Review & Giveaway

I love this world because it’s so unique. Megan Shepherd has created a story unlike any I’ve ever read before! Cora and her friends might have escaped the Cage, but all they did was trade it for another cage. This one was just as creepy as the last! Despite the fact that the Kindred claimed to not kill humans, they were still terrifying. They’re still captors! They controlled everything the humans did. The humans were no better than slaves to […]

Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

She was iron and fire, a warrior’s spirit with a lion’s heart. While I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as I’d hoped (I loved the Defiance trilogy), it was still an enjoyable read! I love retellings, and even though I never really got super into the Snow White fairy tale, I thought this was a great retelling of it. Wicked stepmother and all. (Except, where are the dwarves?!) The thing I loved the most about this book? DRAGONS. […]
