ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

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 […]

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

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, […]

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

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 […]

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

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 […]

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

The Keeper I didn’t really get much out of this one, since it was stuff we already knew about, but it was kinda cool to get a bit more backstory on Scarlet’s grandma and her time spent hiding Selene’s body. Mostly it just gave us insight into how Cinder was named. Not much else I can say about it! Cinders. Embers. Ashes. Michelle hoped that whatever strength had allowed the child to survive the fire all those years ago was a […]

Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

**Possible spoilers** I loved seeing all the characters come together! I think that’s my favorite thing about this series, is that each book tells a different story yet they’re all tied together. I love the backstories of all of them, especially Winter! The scene with Thorne and Cress in the castle gave me warm fuzzies! “I would have killed every one of them to get to you. I would have done anything to get you back. Knowing that we were […]
