Are you a fan of space books? Are you also a fan of the movie Ghost Ship? LOOK NO FURTHER! This book is for you! And also, this book was 100% for me. I am a huge space horror fan, and it’s sooo hard to find them. Or good ones, at least. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022, so I was super jazzed when I got it as an eARC in late 2020 from NetGalley. And […]

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 […]

I have very mixed feelings about this book. It’s definitely not Howard’s best work. (Stain is FANTASTIC, read that instead.) I loved the premise and setting – I’ve never read a Phantom of the Opera retelling, and don’t see many of them to begin with. Howard’s take on incubus/succubus lore was really cool! I also loved Rune’s song and abilities and how they worked. However, the romance utterly ruined it for me. The soulmate trope has to be done a […]

I love how creepy and twisted this one was! There’s also a little mystery aspect to it, which keeps the pace moving nicely. I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved how atmospheric this book was, too. I read it for Horror October and it was the perfect vibe for Halloween! The Harrow house and the things that happened in it were super creepy! I wish I had connected to the characters better, though. I loved Bryony […]

I have no idea how to rate this because I still can’t decide if I loved it or hated it?? I vacillated pretty wildly back and forth at various points of the story. The beginning was rougghhhh. I almost DNFed this book because the first 20% is PAINFULLY, in-your-face high school. Almost like it was trying wayyy too hard to feel like high school. To the point that it was nauseating. It was shallow and juvenile, and I was starting to wonder […]

This book was so unique! I absolutely LOVED the atmospheric setting – Eulalie Island was fantastic! It’s creepy and unsettling and I never knew what was going to happen next. I adore dark and disturbing and this book definitely delivered on both points. The author brought the island to life in vivid detail! The descriptions made things so easy to picture without being too descriptive. Eulalie Island felt like a real place. This would make an awesome movie! I found a […]
