While I still enjoyed this book for the most part, it sooo did not have the magic that A Curse So Dark and Lonely did. First of all, this book is a companion. (Which I knew going in, so I lowered my expectations a bit.) And it’s like most companions – once you get attached to the characters in the first book, it’s hard to get as attached to the secondary characters (or new characters) as the main characters in a […]

Let me start this off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Asian Fantasy. It’s actually my favorite sub-genre and I crave more of it. I was super excited for this book because not only is it AF, it’s #ownvoices! (If you’re looking for some amazing #ownvoices Asian Fantasy I highly recommend Shadow of the Fox and Girls of Paper & Fire!) Sadly, this book fell flat for me. But, the one thing I did love was the Asian aspect […]

This is what a Beauty and the Beast retelling should be (side eyeing you, ACOTAR), and exactly what I want out of one! I recently read Hunted by Meagan Spooner and it gave me similar vibes, however this one was done a bit better (and definitely has a Beauty that is 10000% better). The characters!!!! Ugh I love them so much! I think that was my favorite part. They were all perfect because they were perfectly flawed. I freaking L O V […]

“I want to know that if I drift off to sleep by accident one day, I’ll wake up in the same place. I want to live each day once, the best that I can live it.” What an interesting concept!! This book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before! I loved the idea of it, and I couldn’t put it down. How terrible would it be to fall asleep at night and wake up as someone else the next day, […]

Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

She was a whirling cloud of death, a queen of shadows, and these men were already carrion. I had the same exact problem with this book as I had with Heir of Fire – painfully slow pacing. This book was FAR too long. I feel like there was a lot of unnecessary filler that could have been cut out to push the plot along a bit faster. It didn’t get exciting and start catching my interest until the last third […]

With all of the GLOWING reviews of this book, everyone raving about how amazing it was, how amazing Tamlin was, I was DYING to get my hands on a copy. I would have almost bargained my first born to get my hands on it. I begged Twitter if anyone would let me borrow it. (Thank you Kelly for letting me borrow yours!) And the fact that I didn’t love it like everyone else is kind of soul-crushing. (It has a […]
