This story was BEAUTIFUL!! This is probably one of the most unique books I’ve read in some time. I absolutely loved the world – I wanted to crawl into the pages and live there, it’s so magical! The cover is stunning and the story inside absolutely matches the cover. The fast pacing makes this book a quick and easy read, and the enchanting quality of the story keeps you turning pages. I gobbled this story up! You don’t know very […]

For me this is one of those books that you enjoy for the most part while reading, but don’t ever think about again after you finish. It was good, not great (just like her Lunar Chronicles were for me personally). Honestly, it kind of felt like a rip off of both The Boys and Steelheart. It didn’t particularly have anything super unique as far as superheroes & villains go to bring to the table. I also didn’t care much for […]

Despite feeling rather apathetic about Daughter of the Pirate King, I had high hopes for this one. Vikings!! Norse mythology!!! But sadly, it didn’t work for me much at all. Just like DotPK, I found the writing style to be very juvenile, and it just grated on my nerves. Plot-wise it feels generic and shallow, just like DotPK. I think maybe Tricia Levenseller is just not for me. :( I loved the concept and the world, didn’t give a crap […]

Holy WOW, that was intense!!!! I have to admit that this one started out a bit rocky. When I first met Tuck, it seemed like his narrative was trying too hard to be a cocky teenage male. (Also, there was an unnecessary comparison of his shrunken balls to walnuts, like why??) But in the first few pages this book grabs you by the balls (see, now he’s got me talking about balls) and doesn’t let go! The monsters in this book – mourners, […]

It took me two tries to get into this book. My first attempt I DNFed it within 25-30 pages, because the way Alosa regarded men grated on my nerves. The second time, I went in with low expectations and an open mind, promising myself to take it at face value and not look at it too closely. Honestly, the first half of this book is absolutely ridiculous. It was a constant back and forth of Alosa escaping and getting thrown […]

A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]
