Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

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 […]

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

What I liked: Space! Shadow, and Qole’s ability to wield it ….well, crap, that’s it What I didn’t like: The horrible pacing The dual POVs. It was very confusing and I often forgot who I was reading. There wasn’t really a distinction between them The “white people are royalty and dark people are savages” trope. I’m not sure it was intended that way, as there were dark skinned people in the palace as well, but poor/careless writing nonetheless (am I […]

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Let me make something perfectly clear: THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A FUCKING ROMANCE. Got it? Good. This is not a book about dragons. In fact, dragons make an appearance exactly three times in this entire book. Yes, three. THREE. IN THREE HUNDRED PAGES. Literally the rest of the book is ooey gooey, in your face, vomit-inducing romance. If you dig romance, you’ll […]

Review: Blood, Ink and Fire by Ashley Mansour

Review: Blood, Ink and Fire by Ashley Mansour

I think this book had fabulous potential. The idea of it all was epic – in the future, books and reading are forbidden. How scary is that? I think Ashley Mansour was really onto something great here, because it speaks to the heart of every single one of us readers. A world without books is the worst kind of world we could possibly imagine! The concept really was brilliant. But there were a lot of issues I had with it that […]

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I was really looking forward to this book because umm, that cover?! Gorgeeeoouuus. Sadly I was tricked by a pretty cover again. Maybe the hype killed it a little for me too, or maybe Susan Dennard books just aren’t my cup of tea (I didn’t like Something Strange and Deadly much either, but thought that was just because it was Historical). Sigh. My main issue with this book is that I was horribly bored for the majority of it. I didn’t […]

Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan

Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan

I’m going to be honest, I was afraid to even pick this book up. The reviews for it are horrific. I don’t think I’d seen one good review out there. But, I saw everyone raving about the TV show, and I couldn’t watch it without at least giving the book a chance first (*coughs* because I would never, ever read the book after watching it). Now, unfortunately, I see why people don’t like it. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t […]
