ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

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)

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 […]

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

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 […]

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

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 […]

Review: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Review: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Gold makes monsters of men. Hmm. This review is hard to write, because I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this book. It’s not the kind of story that I would typically even consider picking up, because I’m not really into westerns or anything remotely historical. But, I was in the mood for something different from my usual sci-fi or fantasy novel, and this one sounded interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed Rae Carson’s Walk the Earth a Stranger, and this […]

Review: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Review: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

I have been putting this book of for ages! And with everyone raving about it, I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. Thankfully I didn’t dislike it, but I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed. The pacing was terribly slow, and there wasn’t much happening AT ALL. Throughout the entire story. I felt like nothing really happened. While I did kind of love Po (even though his name is pretty lame), I didn’t connect to the characters very well. Katsa […]
