Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I had actually attempted to pick up this book physically a while back, and wasn’t feeling it. The beginning is SO boring. But I’m so glad I tried again, and the audio was fantastic! I am trash for anything Beauty and the Beast, and this was an awesome retelling! All the feels! She reminds us of what we could be. I freaking LOVED beast’s parts!!! The narrator was AMAZING. Also, the fact that the Beast refers to himself as “we” was […]

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Love withstands all things. Even death. Especially death. This didn’t quite have the magic that The Last Namsara did, but I still really enjoyed it! It was a great companion novel! Don’t expect to see much of the characters you loved from the first book. Or dragons. If you can destroy that expectation before you ever go in, you’ll enjoy this one a lot more. I was pretty disappointed that there were no dragons or Asha. I loved the magic involved and […]

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

There’s still hope as long as we’re alive. Okay so this one didn’t quite wow me like This Mortal Coil did, I’m afraid. I struggled a lot in the first half – I was feeling slumpy already and I wasn’t loving it like I did the first book. I was bored. So, I decided to put it down for a while. I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

To be completely honest, I was worried going in that I would be the black sheep again because the hype for this book is U N R E A L. Thankfully, I wasn’t! For once, the hype is 100% justified. This book is so important, so impactful. It really makes you think about the world and how flawed it is. And honestly, this book got under my skin. I didn’t expect to care so much, because I am just not a contemporary […]

Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

It’s not arrogant to know who you are. It’s powerful. And I am powerful. Oh my gosh, this book was SO fun! I found Durst’s prose to be quirky and engaging – I laughed out loud more than once. I absolutely loved the concept, it was fantastic! MAGIC. HEISTS. WERE. DRAGONS. Yes, that’s right. Weredragons!! How awesome is that?! I also loved that they were thieves of gold and hoarders of treasure by nature. I absolutely loved the sense of […]
