Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Claim the stars. I had been DYING for this book, but I tried to read Mistborn and couldn’t get into it, so I was worried I wouldn’t like this one. I needn’t have worried, because I loved it!! It was such a fun and engaging read, and honestly the perfect Jessi book because 1) it’s sci-fi, 2) it’s set in space, and 3) it has tons of awesome banter! Three things that are a huge win for me! The setting […]

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

What I liked: Space! Shadow, and Qole’s ability to wield it ….well, crap, that’s it What I didn’t like: The horrible pacing The dual POVs. It was very confusing and I often forgot who I was reading. There wasn’t really a distinction between them The “white people are royalty and dark people are savages” trope. I’m not sure it was intended that way, as there were dark skinned people in the palace as well, but poor/careless writing nonetheless (am I […]

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bone will rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown While I still really enjoyed this book, it didn’t quite have the magic that The Girl at Midnight had. I gave the first book my esteemed Hail to the King Award, and it was one of my favorite books of YEAR. I suppose it’s kind of hard to top that, eh? The characters felt very real, and […]

DNF Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

DNF Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

This book was SO boring I just couldn’t bring myself to finish. It’s sad, because I usually really enjoy Kiersten White’s books. I’m not sure if it was because it’s Historical (which I’m pretty picky about on the very rare occasion I do pick it up), because I just wasn’t in the mood to read it (I’m going to be honest, my brain is in Raven Cycle mode at the moment), or because it simply isn’t for me (most likely, tbh). I made […]
