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: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

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 […]

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

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 […]

Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

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 […]

Review: Cured by Bethany Wiggins

Review: Cured by Bethany Wiggins

I loved Stung. LOVED it. The world was amazing, the idea of it was unique and intriguing, and the beasts were scary. I rated it 4.5 stars. Somewhere between Stung and Cured, the magic was lost.   Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it. But, there was none of the epic world building that I adored so much in the first book. There was little to no talk about the bees or the virus, and the beasts only made an […]

Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

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, and […]
