ARC Review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

In every breath, hope abides. JAY WHAT DO YOU DO TO MEEEE. *rocks back and forth* I daresay that this one was EVEN BETTER than the first! If you have not read Nevernight, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR GET ON IT RIGHT NOW. It’s super hard to talk about a some aspects without spoiling things! So I’m going to do a little discussion in spoiler tags for those of you who have read it. DO NOT READ THEM if you […]

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

This was Metaltown. Things didn’t change in Metaltown. You changed, and if you didn’t you paid. Beautifully written as always, Kristen! This book was dark and gritty, and perfectly portrayed the struggles of the world. It was such a beautiful and (and heartbreaking) story! I love that it showed the power of rising up and letting your voice be heard. The unfairness of everything really struck me, I thought Kristen did a fabulous job driving that home! I really felt for the characters and […]

Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I’m not really sure what I was expecting with this book, honestly. I was a bit worried about it being Middle Grade, since I’ve never read MG before and I was afraid it’d be too sophomoric for me. But true to Tahereh’s writing, it was quite beautiful! The only thing really MG about this book is the characters’ ages and disposition. It wasn’t as flowery as her usual prose, but it was still on a higher level of writing than […]

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

WARNING: This book is ADULT book. Do not make the mistake of thinking it is YA, because it is positively, unequivocally, NOT. It contains explicit sexual content, strong language, and loooots of violence. #stabstabstab Never flinch. Never fear. Never forget. Honestly, I don’t think any words I could say could ever do this book justice. But I will try my best! This book absolutely BLEW. ME. AWAY. (Just like I knew it was going to.) If you didn’t already know, […]

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 […]
