What the hell was I thinking even picking this up, lmao. I knew that this probably wasn’t a me book going in, but I couldn’t help myself – morbid curiosity got the better of me. The hype for this book is unreal. (It also has a gorgeous cover, which I also blame for tricking me.) And why? It’s SO GENERIC?! Like it literally brings NOTHING new to the table. Classic Mary Sue main character (oh and did I mention she’s the Chosen One?), […]

Okay so I wasn’t a huge fan of Snow Like Ashes, and I tried to read These Rebel Waves and couldn’t get into it. But when I saw that Kristen (who I adore) was co-writing the book, of course I had to pick it up! I didn’t love it like I’d hoped to, but I did enjoy it while I was reading it even though it didn’t necessarily stick with me. I am a HUGE fan of stories with gods […]

This was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was really hoping for this to be a 5 star book for me. While it didn’t quite make it as high as my expectations, I enjoyed it a lot! The concept is really cool – I loved the gilded ones, alaki, and the deathshrieks. The narrator (Shayna Small) is FANTASTIC! Honestly, she brought this book to life and I know that I wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much as […]

I picked this up on a whim, and to be honest I went in expecting not to enjoy it very much. I ended up being surprised because while it wasn’t great, it was still a fairly decent read. It was pretty generic as far as high fantasy goes and doesn’t really stand out in the sea of fantasy. But Blake’s writing style was solid and the book was able to hold my interest. I enjoyed it for the most part […]

I was leery about picking this one up because it was Historical, but my girl Kayla (@rheya_reads on Insta) picked it for me last year for the 12 recs challenge (12 friends pick 12 books for you to read). I’m so sorry Kayla, I let you down!! I was really hoping to enjoy it, because it was a witchy novel, but sadly I just didn’t. The concept and the way the story was told were both really cool, though! I […]
