Trigger Warning: Rape I have some very mixed feelings on this book, which is going to make it super hard to review. I love mythology, so the basis of this book is a total win for me. However, I was not a fan of the writing style at ALL. The prose is very, VERY dry. That was probably my biggest issue with this book. It’s told in past tense, first person – which is usually my favorite, because I tend to connect […]

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR GODSGRAVE I am the war you cannot win. Holy SHIT. I basically sobbed through the last like quarter of this book, heh. This book wrecked my feels! Jay, you’ve done it yet again!! We all knew going in that Mia was going to die in the end. However, we didn’t know the deets, and I’m quite happy with how everything played out. It was bittersweet! “You kiss like you kill, Mia Corvere.” “And how’s that?” “With finesse.” […]

If we cannot engineer salvation for our men, then vengeance will suffice. Holy….. FUCK. You. Guys. Like, wow. This book was SO incredibly brutal, it slew me! I knew it was going to be bad, but I never expected how bad. You think things can’t get any worse, and then…they do. PREPARE FOR TEARS, GUYS. It starts off a little slow, but I wasn’t bored with this one like I was with Iron Gold. It’s got a lot of politics […]

Upon finishing this book, the main emotion I felt was relief. It seriously took me thirty days to finish this book, you guys. THIRTY. DAYS. I can’t think of any other book that I’ve ever spent more than a couple of weeks on that I didn’t DNF (or hate, it did take me three months to finish Brisingr and it was AWFUL).  Me after finishing: It fucking felt like 84 years anyway XD Honestly, this book was way, WAY too long. Waaaaaay too […]

Death begets death begets death. It’s going to take some time for me to mull this over…I’ll try to get my thoughts into coherent sentences haha! It seriously took me nearly two months to get through this – mostly because I read it as a buddy read and our page goal was 50 pages a day and even then we kept running behind. And I got busy. But also because it takes SO FREAKING LONG to read. It takes me […]

In every breath, hope abides. JAY WHAT DO YOU DO TO MEEEE. *rocks back and forth* I daresay that this one was EVEN BETTER than the first! If you have not read Nevernight, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR GET ON IT RIGHT NOW. It’s super hard to talk about a some aspects without spoiling things! So I’m going to do a little discussion in spoiler tags for those of you who have read it. DO NOT READ THEM if you […]
