“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” – Milton This book didn’t get to me as much as I’d hoped it would. I didn’t cry while reading it – there were a few quotes that hit me really hard, but I didn’t actually get choked up until I read the author’s note. The book itself fell a bit flat for me, which makes me really sad. I felt […]

Holy crap, this book was so addicting!! I’ve seen it compared to One of Us is Lying, which I enjoyed, but I think this one was even better! In the beginning, it starts off as a typical mystery – popular girl is murdered, her boyfriend is the supposed killer. Okay, I can see which direction this is going. But as Pippa started digging and uncovering secrets, shit got crazy! The list of suspects grew longer and just created more and […]

Honestly, this is something I NEVER would have picked up on my own. But my book twin Christy was raving about how amazing the audio was, and I’d been seeing a lot of hype surrounding the book. so I requested it from my library. The hype for the audiobook? SO well deserved. It was fantastic, and to be honest every single one of those 2.5 stars is solely for the audiobook. The book itself? A solid Not For Me. I […]

It’s been a while since I read a mystery/thriller because they’re not usually my jam (and ya’ll know I don’t usually do contemp at all), but I really enjoyed this one! I loved the mystery aspect and how we slowly got snippets of information that lead to clues about the murder. The mystery and all the secrets kept me going! Honestly, throughout most of this book I had no idea who did it. It was well done for sure! I can […]

I absolutely LOVED Shadow of the Fox when I read it, and loved it even more on audio. I mean, Asian fantasy is my fave, and I love Inuyasha (which Shadow in the Fox is basically a book form of), and I adore Julie and everything she’s ever written. Unfortunately, this one didn’t quite have the magic that the first book did. I actually read this last year before it came out, and was disappointed in it. I think I […]

The concept of this book is incredible! I really loved the unique magic system of “scrived” devices, it was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. That was what kept me going, because I felt totally apathetic about the story and characters. Sancia is everything an MC should be, on paper – badass, resilient, determined, and was a clear underdog (coming from a poor background living on the streets, fighting to survive). She should have been easy to root for, but […]
