I don’t have all that much to say about this one, other than I enjoyed it! Mindy’s contemporary books are almost always a hit for me, which is funny because I’m not usually a fan of contemporary. Even funnier that her fantasy books usually don’t work for me. Her contemps just knock it out of the park! This one felt so realistic, like the events had actually happened. There isn’t really a whole lot going on plot wise for a […]

This book doesn’t have anything to do with an actual circus, so don’t let the title fool you. Think brutal alien Hunger Games, with kidnapped girls! It is definitely reminiscent of Hunger Games; however, to me it still stood out on its own. I saw some complaints that it was a regurgitated story, and yes maybe that’s true for the plot (the whole brutal competition part), but I found the world itself to be very unique! First of all, I […]

I have never read a book with an autistic MC (that I know of), and now that I have, I wonder if maybe I’m on the spectrum. Because I have never related to a main character as much as I related to Seelie. She’s brash, and stubborn, and reactive, and feels too much…and I honestly saw myself in her. She’s also super socially awkward (like to the point of it being painful, lmao) and shies away from human interaction and […]

Are you a fan of space books? Are you also a fan of the movie Ghost Ship? LOOK NO FURTHER! This book is for you! And also, this book was 100% for me. I am a huge space horror fan, and it’s sooo hard to find them. Or good ones, at least. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022, so I was super jazzed when I got it as an eARC in late 2020 from NetGalley. And […]

I am embarrassed that it took me so long to finally review this book, but here we are. Even though this wasn’t my favorite Rogerson book by far, I still thoroughly enjoyed it! My main complaint with this book was that I found the pacing to be rather slow. Sorcery of Thorns and An Enchantment of Ravens both grabbed me immediately, and I was captivated by both of them from the get-go (especially Sorcery, which is one of my all […]

I love how creepy and twisted this one was! There’s also a little mystery aspect to it, which keeps the pace moving nicely. I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved how atmospheric this book was, too. I read it for Horror October and it was the perfect vibe for Halloween! The Harrow house and the things that happened in it were super creepy! I wish I had connected to the characters better, though. I loved Bryony […]
