Wow, this book was so powerful! It takes a hard look at the relationships between women – at the empowerment of sisterhood, but also at the power that women have to tear each other down (and how patriarchy pits us against one another). That we are stronger together instead of against one another. It’s been a while since I read a dystopian I enjoyed this much! It had a very Lord of the Flies feel when we were seeing the […]

I just. Wow. I wish I could pretend that the entire ass last half of this book did not exist. I think this has been the most disappointing finale of a series that I’ve ever read, to be completely honest. It took a HARD turn in the middle of the book and completely lost me, and I was so frustrated that I almost DNFed it. I still wish I had, sadly. It’s a shame, really. This series has been phenomenal […]

I felt disappointed with this book in some nameless way that I can’t explain. I really don’t know why, but it just didn’t have the magic that the first and second book had. I still loved the characters – Spensa is tough as nails and an MC worth rooting for, M-Bot is hilarious and his struggle with emotions is endearing, and I enjoyed the introduction of  Chet as well. I also have to admit that I didn’t know there would […]

This was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was really hoping for this to be a 5 star book for me. While it didn’t quite make it as high as my expectations, I enjoyed it a lot! The concept is really cool – I loved the gilded ones, alaki, and the deathshrieks. The narrator (Shayna Small) is FANTASTIC! Honestly, she brought this book to life and I know that I wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much as […]

I picked this up on a whim, and to be honest I went in expecting not to enjoy it very much. I ended up being surprised because while it wasn’t great, it was still a fairly decent read. It was pretty generic as far as high fantasy goes and doesn’t really stand out in the sea of fantasy. But Blake’s writing style was solid and the book was able to hold my interest. I enjoyed it for the most part […]

I was leery about picking this one up because it was Historical, but my girl Kayla (@rheya_reads on Insta) picked it for me last year for the 12 recs challenge (12 friends pick 12 books for you to read). I’m so sorry Kayla, I let you down!! I was really hoping to enjoy it, because it was a witchy novel, but sadly I just didn’t. The concept and the way the story was told were both really cool, though! I […]
