DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

I really enjoyed jumping back into this world! Victoria Schwab is very talented at creating unique and vivid stories, and this one is no exception. It didn’t quite have the magic that A Darker Shade of Magic held for me, but I still enjoyed it! What really dragged this one down was the pacing. The book is more than 500 pages long, and there’s a long span in the middle where almost nothing is happening. I found myself getting bored […]

Review: Riders by Veronica Rossi

Review: Riders by Veronica Rossi

At first I could take or leave this story. While intrigued, I had some issues connecting in the beginning for two reasons: One, our MC is male, and two, the way the story was told. I’m not a fan of reading in a male’s POV, because well, I’m clearly a female, and I can’t relate. I can’t get on board a romance with another female because I like males. So automatically, the romance is out. As for the way the […]

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I was really looking forward to this book because umm, that cover?! Gorgeeeoouuus. Sadly I was tricked by a pretty cover again. Maybe the hype killed it a little for me too, or maybe Susan Dennard books just aren’t my cup of tea (I didn’t like Something Strange and Deadly much either, but thought that was just because it was Historical). Sigh. My main issue with this book is that I was horribly bored for the majority of it. I didn’t […]

The Nightmare Charade Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Nightmare Charade Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

What a satisfying end to an adorable series! It’s been a long time since I read the second book, but I was thrilled to jump back into this magical world. I absolutely LOVE the magic in this book! It seemed like Dusty and Eli’s relationship was always difficult. If it wasn’t one thing getting in between them, it was another. I loved that they still stayed strong despite it all, though! They didn’t give up on each other. I adore […]

A School for Unusual Girls by Kathleen Baldwin

A School for Unusual Girls by Kathleen Baldwin

Thank you to Tor Teen for providing this copy for review! I never was able to tell if the girls at the School actually had supernatural abilities, or if they were just very talented. And smart. It kind of seemed like a paranormal, but it read more like a historical? Which would usually be a bad thing for me, because most of the time anything even remotely historical makes my brain shut down. But this was surprisingly not all that bad! […]
