Review: The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Review: The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Vincit Omnia Veritas. Truth conquers all. I absolutely adore Kristen Simmons, you guys! I always enjoy everything she writes and this book was no different. Well, it was very different for Kristen, but I enjoyed it all the same! This is her first contemporary – everything else has been sci-fi. And she rocked it! I loved the idea of the book – a school for con artists! It was oh so fun and unlike any other contemp I’ve ever read. Brynn was […]

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Fall down seven times. Get up eight. Holy crap, this book was awesome!! To be honest I didn’t know what to expect going in – I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not, and after seeing it pitched as compared to the Darkest Minds, I was skeptical. Surprisingly, I was blown away!! I wasn’t too sure in the beginning, though – I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing for some reason that I couldn’t quite […]

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

The stories in this one were extremely hit or miss for me. While there were a few I loved, there were also a lot I didn’t love. I did enjoy the culture and diversity in this one, though! These stories feature a myriad of POC and LGBTQ+ characters. I also quite loved the girl power that this book had going for it! Favorite stories: Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yovanoff, Why They Watch Us Burn by Elizabeth May, Death […]

Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Honor above life. This book is dark. Gritty. Violent. But it felt raw and realistic, and was heartbreakingly beautiful! What a kickass viking fantasy! I had zero problem picturing everything in my head as it was happening. Young’s stunning prose brought the world and characters to life. It was cinematic! The characters were compelling and real. The characterization of this book is phenomenal. Even the side characters were important. I found myself attached to each and every one of them! The sense of family […]

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]
