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 […]

I love this world so much! It was wonderful to jump back into it. There’s something about the world that Anne Bishop writes that draws you in. MEG AND SIMON FEELS!! I love them together. They are so totally adorable. I’ve pretty much shipped them from the beginning, but I absolutely love that there’s no romance between them. (There’s no romance at all in this series, actually. It’s so refreshing.) They’re so cute though!! I love that he thinks of […]

It was so much fun to read this series again! I’m still surprised by how much I had forgotten about this series. It never really stuck with me the way The Wayfarer Redemption did, but it was amazing nonetheless! I loved the part with the Axis and Inardle in the ice hex, and the story behind the River Angels was riveting! I had completely forgotten that. The One was as creepy as I remembered, and it was satisfying to see […]

There was a lot of talk about the Threshold in this one, and it made me wish that I had read her book, Threshold. I would probably have known much more of the backstory on the pyramid, the One, and the magi! “I find all my strength in the beat of your heart.” It was kind of amazing how Ishbel and Maxel fell apart so badly only to come back together stronger! And ok how about Ravenna? How could I forget […]

Mini Review: The Serpent Bride by Sara Douglass

This series is actually a spin-off of The Wayfarer Redemption series (which, if you didn’t know by now, is my favorite Adult series), and this is the second time I’ve read it. I read the entire Wayfarer Redemption series for the third time a couple of months ago, and I’ve been having slight withdrawal ever since. It felt so good to dive back into the world! It’s a totally different timeline and different setting than the original, but it’s in […]

I enjoyed re-reading this series so, SO much, and I’m sad that it has to come to an end! I’d forgotten how easy it was to be consumed by this world. It’s so unique and complex! Sara Douglass has truly created a world like no other, and perhaps that’s why this series stuck with me after 10 long years. I know it will stick with me for years to come, as well! Holy crap, there’s so much death in this […]
