I’m so sad that I didn’t love this one. The hype for this book is UNREAL! Everyone talks about how beautiful the writing is, but it didn’t wow me. In fact, I found this story to be somewhat dull. I loved the idea of the magic system, but the middle got pretty boring when Lark was in the castle. I didn’t care at all for the romance, either. There was zero chemistry between Lark and Tiras, and it borderlined controlling […]

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 […]
