Wow. I don’t really know what I expected going in. I saw Cait’s (@paperfury) review where she said “this book softly held my hand, lead me to the edge of a cliff, and then shoved me straight on off” and went and bought it instantly. I didn’t even really know what genre it was – the synopsis is very vague, so I thought it was a contemporary pushing thriller with maybe some possible paranormal elements. What I got was NOTHING […]

For me this is one of those books that you enjoy for the most part while reading, but don’t ever think about again after you finish. It was good, not great (just like her Lunar Chronicles were for me personally). Honestly, it kind of felt like a rip off of both The Boys and Steelheart. It didn’t particularly have anything super unique as far as superheroes & villains go to bring to the table. I also didn’t care much for […]

I honestly have NO idea why I put off finishing this series for so long!! I read the second book way back in 2012, and this one came out early 2014, but I just…never read it. Oops. I suck at series. I guess part of me thought I was going to be let down? I’d heard some really mixed things about this last book, so that probably led to me putting it off too. I shouldn’t have worried! Although, I […]

Wow. What a powerful story! This book absolutely broke my heart, and I felt so angry and indignant for the things that Shirin had to go through. This book is definitely important, and one that I think everyone should read! I hated the pathetic, soul-sucking effort it took to finally make a single friend brave enough to sit next to me in public. Coming from a place of privilege, it’s hard to ever imagine what going through these things would […]

Holy crap, WHY did I wait so long to read this?! I’d heard of it, but never really heard ABOUT it. I knew it existed, it was on my Goodreads TBR, but I never really looked twice at it. I recently posted in the Epic Reads Book Club group on Facebook looking for obscure and underrated books and someone suggested this one. I went and looked it up, and: Sentient alien spaceships?! Give me NOW! I went and bought it […]

Audiobook Review: Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa

I absolutely LOVED Shadow of the Fox when I read it, and loved it even more on audio. I mean, Asian fantasy is my fave, and I love Inuyasha (which Shadow in the Fox is basically a book form of), and I adore Julie and everything she’s ever written. Unfortunately, this one didn’t quite have the magic that the first book did. I actually read this last year before it came out, and was disappointed in it. I think I […]
