[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 […]

Review: Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

Review: Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

I think I mentioned in my review of Between the Lines that I would have never looked twice at these books based off of the covers. This one is better than the last, but it still doesn’t scream “Young Adult fantasy” to me. But I’m very glad I received this one for review, because I really enjoyed it! I am highly impressed by how much the writing style improved from the last book. (Part of that may be because two heads are […]

Review: The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

Review: The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

Holy wow, this book was amazing! It’s been a very long time since I’ve read something that I got so much sheer enjoyment from! There were so many times where the WWE chant “this is awesome” was running through my head. (And probably no one is going to know what I’m talking about.) Because it was – freaking awesome, that is! I was grinning like an idiot and laughing out loud throughout the whole book. That high of an enjoyment level […]
