It actually took me two tries to get into this book. *hides* The first time I just wasn’t in the mood. I didn’t make it very far before I moved on. The second time went a lot better! It does start a little slow, but once it picks up it’s a pretty good read. It gets super intense in a few points! I really enjoyed it while I was reading it, even though it didn’t really stick with me like […]

This was actually my second time reading this book, because to be honest I didn’t remember much of anything about it the first time I read it, oops. I did really enjoy it though, and I enjoyed it the second time through as well! I love the Italian setting and culture in this book – it made me SO HUNGRY!! Lmao! The world in this book is so atmospheric and magical. I really enjoyed the stories of the Wicked (princes […]

These audiobooks are FANTASTIC! One of my fave narrations out there. Not to mention this story was insanely engrossing and kept me on the edge of my seat! It’s one of those that you think about when you’re not reading (listening) and can’t wait to get back to. I usually only listen at work, and I found myself making excuses to listen at home, too! So good! It was very interesting to see this story unravel as Pip got little […]

Wow. Just wow. I’m gonna preface this review by saying this: I have never had any kind of substance addiction, so I don’t understand the way someone who had fought addiction would. But even still, this book was really powerful. I’ve also discovered a new worst fear after reading this: injury. As in, injury to the point where I lose my mobility. It’s something that able people really take for granted, honestly. I can’t even imagine not being able to […]

This was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was really hoping for this to be a 5 star book for me. While it didn’t quite make it as high as my expectations, I enjoyed it a lot! The concept is really cool – I loved the gilded ones, alaki, and the deathshrieks. The narrator (Shayna Small) is FANTASTIC! Honestly, she brought this book to life and I know that I wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much as […]

I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy this with it being historical, but I picked it up anyway because I LOVED The Ten Thousand Doors of January. And Alix delivered yet again! It wasn’t quite as good as Ten Thousand Doors, but it was still haunting and beautiful! Harrow’s prose is absolutely lovely and engaging and it just draws you in! I loved the magic of this story. It made me want to crawl into the pages and live there! I’m […]
