Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

What I liked: The storytelling. It was absolutely brilliant! I love how things were unveiled and it kind of throws you for a loop. Secrets, lies, and betrayal! I love how each of the queens had something to hide, and their secrets slowly came to light. They were each breaking the queenly law in some way. The world. The concept of the world was really interesting, albeit a bit vague – four distinct quadrants of Quadara, four ruling queens. I’ll […]

Review: City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Review: City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

This book is rather difficult for me to review, because in the beginning I had really mixed feelings about it. I didn’t love it quite like I’d hoped to. My girl Erin (@asthebookends) LOVED this book so I was expecting to be blown away and maybe my hopes were just too high. I actually put it off for a few weeks when I was planning on picking it up because I was afraid it’d send me into a reading slump […]

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

“Ours is a love stronger than fear and deeper than the sea.” Soo this makes me really sad to say but this story was really boring for most of the book?? *cries* Looking back I really can’t tell you what actually happened because NOTHING HAPPENED. After Flame in the Mist I expected much, much more. Not to say that I didn’t like it – I did still enjoy it for the most part because Renee’s writing is lovely, and I […]

Review: The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

Review: The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

The monstrous act by definition demands a monster. I have VERY mixed feelings about this book, even more so than the first one. I loved the first book simply for the fact that it was super creepy, gripping, and was actual horror. This one was a lot more…disturbing. It was very gruesome, which I love. It’s totally twisted, but I love gory stuff! And this one was the goriest of the gory. I mean, there was a certain scene close to the end […]

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

After all, every story has a story. I have NO idea why it took me so long to finally pick this one up! It’s been on my TBR for almost two years now, and I’ve been wanting to read it forever. I guess I was just worried I wouldn’t like it. I shouldn’t have been! This book was engaging and mesmerizing. Renee’s prose is so beautiful! I loved the Arabian Nights/Aladdin feel it had going to it. There’s not very […]
