ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

Not gonna lie, I am hella disappointed in this book. This was my most anticipated 2019 debut, and my second most anticipated non-sequel release of 2019. Perhaps my hopes were just too high, but when I heard magical, elemental crows I was STOKED to read it. What an awesome-sounding concept! And indeed it was – I loved the crows and how the different types worked: sun crows for healing, earth and storm crows for crops, fire crows, battle crows, shadow crows…it was seriously […]

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

Despite feeling rather apathetic about Daughter of the Pirate King, I had high hopes for this one. Vikings!! Norse mythology!!! But sadly, it didn’t work for me much at all. Just like DotPK, I found the writing style to be very juvenile, and it just grated on my nerves. Plot-wise it feels generic and shallow, just like DotPK. I think maybe Tricia Levenseller is just not for me. :( I loved the concept and the world, didn’t give a crap […]

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

For being erieso short, I found this one to be rather slow. I was super bored in the beginning, waiting for something to happen. The letters don’t come until quite a long way into the book. While I did enjoy the sense of family that Lara Jean had, I found I didn’t really care about the mundane happenings in her life that took up nearly half of the novel. This is why I don’t really care to read contemp very […]

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Okay, so I think the hype monster got me on this one. Or maybe because I was so blown away by the second and third books that I was just expecting more? I was disappointed in this one. I had sky high expectations, and it didn’t deliver. Honestly? I was kinda bored. I feel like not a whole lot happened – it was mostly just Juliette adjusting to life as Supreme Commander. There was little to no plot in this […]

Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Donated by an anonymous benefactor, for all the crooked saints. I had been looking forward to this book ALL. YEAR. I was sure I’d love it because it sounded so interesting, but I was also worried for two reasons: The hype. I tend to be the black sheep on over-hyped books Maggie’s writing is very hit-or-miss for me. I loved the Raven Boys and Scorpio Races, and Shiver was okay, but I didn’t like the 2nd or 3rd Wolves of Mercy […]

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Trust no one. Question everything. This book is very difficult for me to review because I kind of have a love/hate relationship with it. I was really excited for this book. In fact, it was in the top 10 on my most anticipated releases of 2016 list. I was so sure I was going to love it, because I loved the White Rabbit Chronicles and the Intertwined trilogy. Sadly, I was disappointed. In the beginning, I had no idea what was going […]
