I’m going to be honest, I really struggled with this book at first. The first half was excruciatingly boring, to the point that I almost gave up. I had to put it down several times – I read to 10%, put it down and picked up Trial by Fire; picked it back up after I finished that one only to put it back down at 20%; started and finished Fiendish, then picked HoF back up again, this time pushing myself through […]

I loved Throne of Glass, and I must say Crown of Midnight was even better! It was intense and heartbreaking, packed with lies and betrayals and shocks at every turn. “I didn’t really snore, did I?” His face was utterly serious as he said, “Like a bear.” The banter I adored between Calaena and Chaol in the first book was present in the sequel. And Chaol was totally jealous of Archer, it was adorable! I was Team Chaol all the way before, […]

I honestly don’t even know how to write this review. It was one of those books that was just so….something, I can’t even begin to put it into words. Here goes… First of all, the detail that Samantha Shannon put into the world building was incredible. Seriously, kudos to her! I can’t imagine the time that she had to have spent on it. The world in The Bone Season was very in depth and well thought out, with its own […]

Although I don’t read it much, I thoroughly enjoy high fantasy. And my first thought upon opening this book? OHMIGAWD A MAP!! It’s sad how thrilled I was to see it. I just hate reading high fantasy where all those made-up place names are thrown at me and I have no way of getting a visual. So right away this book earned brownie points with me! Celaena was a great lead. She was kick-ass and strong, yet she was still […]

This book was totally creepy! It grabbed my attention right from the beginning and refused to let go. Suspenseful and chilling, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, wondering what would happen next. I just want to get something off my mind right now before I go any further: I don’t know what’s up with killing felines in books lately, but it really needs to stop. It doesn’t add anything to the story except outrage (for […]

DNF review: Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore

DNF review: Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore

I only got about 100 pages through (which is actually almost half the book because it’s so short) and was so bored out of my mind that I decided it was time to put it down. Reading should be enjoyable, and I’d rather spend my time reading a book that doesn’t send me into violent fits of narcolepsy. The writing was a bit sophomoric and dry, which was a main cause of boredom for me. The second cause was that […]
