[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows. I have been putting this book off for SO long! To be honest, the hype was a bit intimidating. It’s also Historical, which is so not my thing. So I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this one. As it turns out, I’m somewhere in the middle. I did enjoy it, but I didn’t love it. I don’t know what it is about a Historical setting that […]

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Even the darkest stars shone here, so far from the earth. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. I hadn’t heard much about it, but a lot of my bookish friends loved it. I think going in with little expectations and little knowledge of what the book was about worked in my favor, because I really enjoyed it!! The main complaint I have about this book is that it is really slow. Not much happens other […]

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

After seeing everyone RAVING about how amazing the sequel was and how it was just sooo much better than the first, I had some pretty high hopes. I didn’t love Caraval or anything – I was super underwhelmed by the ending, but I did enjoy it for the most part because of the intriguing world. However, this book was not only a struggle, but a MAJOR disappointment. I feel like I read a totally different book than everyone else did. […]

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I feel very, very alive. It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I read this book, so it’s hard to review it! I’d forgotten a lot of it so I had to skim the book to remember. I did really enjoy it while I was reading though! The story is super cute. “But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.” There’s something […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

The die is cast. But today we will shake the table upon which it lands. Okay, I have been putting off this review for far too long… *hides face* To be completely honest, in comparison to the other two books, I was underwhelmed. IT KILLS ME TO ADMIT THAT. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I still loved it!! Of course I still loved it. But the first half was slooow in a way that the first two never […]

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

BEWARE: This book includes heavy elements such as physical and emotional abuse, non-consentual sex in an arranged marriage (basically, rape), and To touch upon the topic of abuse: I feel Gaughen handled it very well. It was never romanticized – in fact, our main character didn’t let it happen or pretend it didn’t happen. She stood up against it the best she could – knowing that she couldn’t really do anything because she was basically trapped – and verbalized against it. […]
