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 […]

I am embarrassed that it took me so long to finally review this book, but here we are. Even though this wasn’t my favorite Rogerson book by far, I still thoroughly enjoyed it! My main complaint with this book was that I found the pacing to be rather slow. Sorcery of Thorns and An Enchantment of Ravens both grabbed me immediately, and I was captivated by both of them from the get-go (especially Sorcery, which is one of my all […]

HOLY CRAP this book blew me away!!! I really enjoyed Enchantment of Ravens (even though I didn’t think I would), so I knew I’d love this one too. I didn’t expect to love it so much, giving me my first 5 star book in 4 months! The concept was AMAZING!! Our main character, Elisabeth, works as an apprentice in a magical library full of sentient grimoires. Sentient magical books, you guys. MAGICAL. BOOKS. Has there ever been a more perfect book for bookworms?! […]

Okay, so I’d enjoy anything Mortal Instruments just because I love the world. But sadly, I’ve fallen out of love with this series. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it while reading – but ever since City of Glass, the books have failed to leave a lasting impression on me. It’s kind of like beating a dead horse at this point. I strongly believe that Cassie should have left this a trilogy, the way it was originally meant to […]

[Lots of spoilers ahead, but all are in tags. DO NOT CLICK THEM IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK. No, seriously. They will ruin it for you because they are doozies. Just don’t do it, man.] For the majority of this book, I feel like there wasn’t really anything happening. I got fairly bored with the audio because it was moving at a snail’s pace. I listened to it while traveling to Florida, and I actually had to turn it […]

Moira Young is fabulous at world building! I love the world in the Dust Lands series and I was more than ready to dive back into it, bad grammar and all. (Which is why I refused to read it, I actually bought the audio because my library didn’t have it!) I still enjoyed it, but it didn’t quite have the magic that Blood Red Road had. I didn’t feel like there was much happening plot-wise and it was just lacking something […]
