Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Just like with the first book, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. As I stated in my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, I went into the series expecting a historical fantasy. This book is NOT fantasy. The only thing fantasy about this series is Leah’s ability to witch gold. This series is hardcore Historical Fiction, set during the gold rush. I think it’s the latter part that makes it interesting to me. It’s no secret […]

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Victoria Schwab is such a pro at writing interesting and unique stories! This one was brilliant, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I loved the concept so much! In North City, Harker and his monsters. In South City, Flynn and his humans. I had a little trouble grasping the sides of the city at first. I was confused because our main character, August, as well as his brother and sister (who were monsters too), was on Flynn’s side and […]

Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

I think everyone knows by now how much I hate historical. I went into this expecting a fantasy. I knew it had a historical aspect, but I didn’t think it would be overpowering. Let me repeat: I thought this was a fantasy. It is NOT a fantasy. In fact, there’s really nothing fantasy about this book at all aside from Leah’s ability to witch gold. This is a historical all the way. But, surprisingly, that didn’t ruin it for me. […]

Review: The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

Review: The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

I’m still not quite sure how I feel about this book. I was REALLY enjoying it in the beginning, but somewhere along the line it lost some of that magic. I don’t know what happened! I took a break from reading it about halfway through, and for some reason when I came back it wasn’t the same. Maybe because I had already started to forget some of the details. I wanted to love this book, I really did – I […]

DNF Review: Talker 25 by Joshua McCune

DNF Review: Talker 25 by Joshua McCune

Boy, was I looking forward to this book. Because DRAGONS. But…meh.   First of all, I was expecting this awesome Urban Fantasy, and it ended up being a cookie-cutter Dystopian with dragons thrown in the mix. That was my first problem. My second problem was that the character interaction and dialogue was just…absurd.   “Put these on if it’s too bright for you, Callahan. We don’t want you squinting like you’re blocked up or something.” Um…oookaaay. Who says that? And […]
