This book was absolutely NOT what I was expecting at all, but I really enjoyed it! To me this cover screams viking story, but that’s not even remotely close. (The cover does not fit the story at ALL in my opinion, sorry) I didn’t know much going in, just that I loved the cover and that it had really high reviews. I am slightly disappointed that I didn’t get a viking story, lol. (I know, I know, don’t judge a book […]

I was born of this dust, and I am never going to escape it. This is the book I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it! In the sea of 3 star books I’ve read in the past few months, it was refreshing to read something that sucked me in, and I needed that. The cover and synopsis drew me in when I first heard about this one, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it because Bowman’s books […]

My poor dears. My grim little lovelies. I have pretty mixed feelings about this book. The main emotion that I feel after reading? Disappointment. This was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases, and I expected it to be amazing. Sadly, it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good – just…not great. The concept and world were the gems of this novel. The whole world of magic and the idea of the beasties was incredible!! Honestly this book […]

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Honestly this review was hard for me to write because it’s been THREE months since I read it. I remember almost nothing. I kinda wish I had just DNFed it, because between forcing myself through a book that wasn’t working for me and the obligation I felt to continue (this was an ARC tour book so I felt like I had to finish), this book was directly responsible for the horrible reading slump that I’ve been in since LAST NOVEMBER. Yes. I […]

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Wow, this book is really hard to talk about without giving anything away! I mostly liked it while I was reading, but it didn’t wow me. I did like how twisted it was, though – that was the saving grace for this book. My main issue with this book is that it was horrendously predictable. There were also inconsistencies with the plot. The authority figures were portrayed as rather dumb and useless. Chase and Alice are constantly running around the […]
