This was actually my second time reading this book, because to be honest I didn’t remember much of anything about it the first time I read it, oops. I did really enjoy it though, and I enjoyed it the second time through as well! I love the Italian setting and culture in this book – it made me SO HUNGRY!! Lmao! The world in this book is so atmospheric and magical. I really enjoyed the stories of the Wicked (princes […]

I picked this up on a whim, and to be honest I went in expecting not to enjoy it very much. I ended up being surprised because while it wasn’t great, it was still a fairly decent read. It was pretty generic as far as high fantasy goes and doesn’t really stand out in the sea of fantasy. But Blake’s writing style was solid and the book was able to hold my interest. I enjoyed it for the most part […]

I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]

I absolutely LOVED the premise and the Welsh mythology!! So awesome! The bone houses, the Tylwyth Teg (fae), the pwca, and the story of the cauldron were so unique and intriguing. That was definitely my favorite part! This book started off really strong! I was super interested in the bone houses and the mythology aspect, and it wasn’t like anything I’d read before. (I’d also heard all about the goat so I was ready for that hehe!) It flagged a […]

I honestly have NO idea why I put off finishing this series for so long!! I read the second book way back in 2012, and this one came out early 2014, but I just…never read it. Oops. I suck at series. I guess part of me thought I was going to be let down? I’d heard some really mixed things about this last book, so that probably led to me putting it off too. I shouldn’t have worried! Although, I […]

This book is a bit hard for me to review, because I had some pretty mixed feelings about it. First of all, I absolutely LOVED the dogs and the search and rescue aspect, that was definitely the selling point! I love animals in stories, and the dogs were a forefront in this one. I also really loved the wilderness setting – it actually reminded me hardcore of Homeward Bound! But, if you remove those two elements that I was quite […]
