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: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Caution: Review contains spoilers for Strange the Dreamer! “Wishes don’t just come true. They’re only the target you paint around what you want. You still have to hit the bullseye yourself.” Holy CRAP this book was SO. BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved it just as much as the first one! And, of course, just like the first one this one is tragic and heartbreaking. But GLORIOUS. I loved every second! Laini’s writing is gorgeous and just draws you in. Even when nothing […]

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

It was so awesome to return to this imaginative virtual world! The world of the NeuroLink is my absolute favorite part of this series. It’s so cinematic! I also LOVE the setting because it’s in Japan! Honestly the whole concept of mind control through the form of a virtual reality is terrifying, because everything in this book seems viable. It feels realistic, like it could actually happen someday. I really liked the catharsis in this book. I can’t say much […]

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

With all of the GLOWING reviews of this book, everyone raving about how amazing it was, how amazing Tamlin was, I was DYING to get my hands on a copy. I would have almost bargained my first born to get my hands on it. I begged Twitter if anyone would let me borrow it. (Thank you Kelly for letting me borrow yours!) And the fact that I didn’t love it like everyone else is kind of soul-crushing. (It has a […]

Review: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Review: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

With all the hype surrounding this one, I was honestly afraid that I would end up being disappointed. But guys, the hype is definitely not exaggerated because this book was gorgeous! I am so in love with Sabaa Tahir’s writing, her prose is freaking beautiful! There were so many quotable lines! (The pages were filled with my little neon book flags!) Not to mention that the idea is original, and the world is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. The Augurs […]

Review: The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

Review: The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

Sadly I didn’t quite love this one like everyone else did. I do see the appeal, but the lack of connection to the story killed it for me. *sobs* I wanted so badly to love it, but I just didn’t. It was still a beautiful story, though – Jodi Meadows rocks at creating unique and intriguing worlds! I loved the magical aspect of the story, and the concept of the Wraith was pretty cool. That was definitely the selling part […]
