ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

I will show him what a woman can do. In the beginning, I was enjoying it but I wasn’t engrossed. The writing was positively stunning, and I was intrigued by the world, but it wasn’t grabbing me for some reason (I blame this stupid reading slump that won’t go away). It wasn’t until Benyamin and Kifah showed up that I realized that was hopelessly hooked. Talk about squad goals!!! I freaking LOVED the banter and camaraderie that the gang – […]

Review: Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith

Review: Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith

There was only Furnace. It was our world, our grave, our hell. I don’t know if it was a mood issue for me or what, but this book didn’t quite live up to the first one. For some reason it didn’t have the magic, it wasn’t as intense, and it wasn’t as scary. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a creepy setting with disturbing things happening, but it didn’t have me all: like the first one did. And for some reason the […]

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

I had very mixed feelings about this book. I think the thing I enjoyed most about it was how seriously twisted it was. It was very dark, and I liked that! But sadly, that was where the enjoyment ended. There was a scene in the beginning pissed me off to the point that I very nearly DNFed it. I wanted to throw my Kindle against a wall! Erin has a cat (named Clint Eastwood…and it’s a female. Wtf….) that has […]

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

I’ve been hearing wonderful things about this book for some time now (especially from Nova!), but I’ve been hesitant to pick it up because I wasn’t sure it was going to be a “me” book. As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised! I absolutely loved the message this book had going for it. I love that Elise was sort of lost and alone, and in finding music she found herself. She also found herself without the aid of a guy. This […]

Mini Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Mini Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

I absolutely loved The Winner’s Curse. I’m sad to say that some of the magic was lost for me somewhere between that book and this sequel. I felt like there was nothing happening plot-wise. This book is a romance. Nothing more. The entire story was solely Arin and Kestrel pining for one another, and the hardships they faced that kept them apart. And yeah, it sucked, but I didn’t connect to this one nearly as much as I did to the first […]

Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

“The Winner’s Curse is when you come out on top of the bid, but only by paying a steep price.” It’s no secret that I had been DYING for this book for months. It was THE most anticipated 2014 release for me! I was kinda worried that the Hype Monster would strike again, that I would be disappointed because my hopes were sky high. But I was pleasantly surprised! It didn’t blow me away, but I still loved it! This […]
