Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

After all, every story has a story. I have NO idea why it took me so long to finally pick this one up! It’s been on my TBR for almost two years now, and I’ve been wanting to read it forever. I guess I was just worried I wouldn’t like it. I shouldn’t have been! This book was engaging and mesmerizing. Renee’s prose is so beautiful! I loved the Arabian Nights/Aladdin feel it had going to it. There’s not very […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Just like with the first book, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. As I stated in my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, I went into the series expecting a historical fantasy. This book is NOT fantasy. The only thing fantasy about this series is Leah’s ability to witch gold. This series is hardcore Historical Fiction, set during the gold rush. I think it’s the latter part that makes it interesting to me. It’s no secret […]

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

This was Metaltown. Things didn’t change in Metaltown. You changed, and if you didn’t you paid. Beautifully written as always, Kristen! This book was dark and gritty, and perfectly portrayed the struggles of the world. It was such a beautiful and (and heartbreaking) story! I love that it showed the power of rising up and letting your voice be heard. The unfairness of everything really struck me, I thought Kristen did a fabulous job driving that home! I really felt for the characters and […]

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This was my first Rainbow Rowell book! And I have to say I do see the appeal. This book was pretty adorable! It’s pure fluff, which isn’t something I would typically pick up, but I did enjoy it. It won’t make it to my favorites, and isn’t something that will necessarily stick with me, but it was a cute and fun read. The idea is kind of creepy, but somehow it worked. It was the book version of one of […]

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bone will rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown While I still really enjoyed this book, it didn’t quite have the magic that The Girl at Midnight had. I gave the first book my esteemed Hail to the King Award, and it was one of my favorite books of YEAR. I suppose it’s kind of hard to top that, eh? The characters felt very real, and […]
