Hooboy *takes deep breath* This is not going to be pretty. Honestly, I should have just DNFed this book. The only reason I didn’t is because the world was intriguing and in the beginning I was really interested. But sadly, the farther I read, the worse it got. I’ll start with the positive: The concept was FANTASTIC. In the beginning, I was so onboard! It felt so much like Waterworld, which I love. The idea of a post-apocalyptic world of […]

It’s been a really long time since I read a book that I hated so much that I legit wanted to throw across the room. And for whatever reason, I couldn’t stop reading it??? It was like watching a train wreck, it was SO. TERRIBLE. but I just couldn’t look away. (Or maybe I’m becoming a softie since I apparently have lost my ability to ruthlessly DNF anything I’m not enjoying….) This book was honestly terrible. The romance was terrible. […]

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

Wow, talk about disappointing. Honestly, this is probably one of the most disappointing books I’ve ever read in all my life. I love dragon stories. And the fastest way to ruin a dragon story is, gee, to NOT PUT ANY DRAGONS IN IT. Where were the dragons I was promised? WHERE?! (And I quote, from Jodi herself: “Lots and lots of dragons.” UTTER. BULLSHIT.) I mean, it had some dragons. But most of the dragon stuff was just talking about dragons. And […]

Do you ever have those times where you go into a book knowing full well you wouldn’t like it? Yeah, this was one of those for me. Why the hell did you read it, then? some of you may be asking. Well, there’s this annoying thing called the Hype Monster. And I let that little turd get the best of my curiosity. Things I liked: How brutal, dark, and bloody it was The lies and betrayal The not-relationship between Cardan and Jude […]

**MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS** Well….there’s 4 hours of my life I’m never getting back. What. the actual fuck. did I just read……….*blank stare* WHY DID NO ONE WARN ME HOW FUCKING WEIRD THIS BOOK IS?! This book was NOT my thing. At all. Total waste of my time. This was my first foray into the world of magical realism, and if it’s all like this book it’s definitely not something I’d ever read again. There was so much WTFery in this story I […]
