The world is not tame. I needed this SO BAD when I picked it up, without even realizing it. Let’s face it, the world sucks right now and shit is rough. This book’s “appreciate what you have because one day you may not have it” message was something I desperately needed right now. Not to mention I’ve been in a horrible reading slump since everything started happening, and with my own personal issues added on top of it all, I […]

What a beautiful debut!! The world of Aritsar as well as Ifueko’s prose were stunning and vivid. I loved the culture! It felt a lot like a mashup of Children of Blood & Bone and City of Brass, but was everything I wanted from both of those books (and didn’t get). This was the gorgeous Nigerian fantasy that I expected jumping into CoB&B, which left me feeling disappointing. This one did not! I was utterly hooked from the first chapter! It […]

You are made of dreams and this world is not for you. Okay, so I loved the Raven Boys series, and Ronan was my FAVORITE character out of the whole series. So imagine my elation when I found out that he had his own series coming out!!!!! I was kinda worried going in that this wouldn’t amount to the very tall pedestal of hype that I had raised it on in my head, but IT DID. OH, it did. RONAN […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]

Wow, what a wild ride!! This book was explosive and action packed from start to finish! The second book dragged in the beginning, but this one definitely did NOT have that problem. There was never a dull moment! I have to say, Emily Suvada never disappoints when it comes to dropping bombs. So many surprises! “We’re both monsters, Jun Bei. That’s what they made us into. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do good in this world.” Jun Bei was ruthless […]

In the beginning, I was on the fence about reading this book. I had actually picked it up once, wasn’t feeling it, and moved on to something else for a while before coming back to it. The French-esque setting (but not actually France?) and social themes had a historical feel, which I hate, and I was struggling. I didn’t care about anything and it was slow going. When Lou and Reid met, everything changed. From the moment that Lou sets […]
