I enjoyed this one while I was reading, but even a week after finishing I had already forgotten most of the details. I liked the viking aspect, the gods, and the setting; and the pacing was quick, which made for an easy read. I also found the prose to be enjoyable and engaging. But sadly the characters didn’t do much for me. I didn’t connect to any of them, and the romance moved a bit too quickly for me. I’m […]

I picked this up on a whim, and to be honest I went in expecting not to enjoy it very much. I ended up being surprised because while it wasn’t great, it was still a fairly decent read. It was pretty generic as far as high fantasy goes and doesn’t really stand out in the sea of fantasy. But Blake’s writing style was solid and the book was able to hold my interest. I enjoyed it for the most part […]

I was leery about picking this one up because it was Historical, but my girl Kayla (@rheya_reads on Insta) picked it for me last year for the 12 recs challenge (12 friends pick 12 books for you to read). I’m so sorry Kayla, I let you down!! I was really hoping to enjoy it, because it was a witchy novel, but sadly I just didn’t. The concept and the way the story was told were both really cool, though! I […]

This book was SO. TEDIOUS. The narrator was okay – not bad, but not great either. And the book took FOREVER! And I feel like nothing really happened. I just listened to the audiobook a month or two ago and I remember almost nothing. The characters were hard to keep straight, too. There were several sets of names that sounded almost identical (it’s fantasy so probably spelled differently) and I kept mixing them up. And I just didn’t care about […]

Honestly, this is something I NEVER would have picked up on my own. But my book twin Christy was raving about how amazing the audio was, and I’d been seeing a lot of hype surrounding the book. so I requested it from my library. The hype for the audiobook? SO well deserved. It was fantastic, and to be honest every single one of those 2.5 stars is solely for the audiobook. The book itself? A solid Not For Me. I […]
