Welp, first DNF of the year! This book actually started off pretty strong. In the beginning I was into it, and excited about the space aspect. I love space books! Sadly, while the concept was awesome, the delivery was pretty awful. When I saw how bad the reviews were, I was worried; but I was still hopeful, because almost all of the negative ones were audio (which apparently is very robotic, yikes) and I tend to be the black sheep […]

Honestly, this is a “it’s not you, it’s me” situation. I used to read Paranormal Romance a lot in my early 20’s, and I just plain got sick of it. After a while, it all reads EXACTLY THE SAME. Super sexy, single Mary Sue – a virgin too, eye roll – in her mid 20’s (what 25 year old has NEVER HAD AN ORGASM? I mean I’m sure it happens occasionally but why is it EVERY SINGLE PR EVER?!) meets […]

After spending nearly a month trying to get into this one and fighting with myself over picking it back up, I’ve decided it’s time to let go. Which makes me SUPER bummed, because it was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases!! I wanted so badly to love this one, but I made it 200 pages in and I was still struggling hardcore and feeling really apathetic toward it. It started off really strong – I was enjoying the writing, […]

The book I read was an uncorrected proof. Any quotes used may be subject to change. Color me disappointed, because I was really looking forward to this one. The concept is incredible! Bad people’s souls are reincarnated as monsters called Kehoks in their next life, and basically take the form of a chimera. People race them, and the Kehok that wins gets redemption for their soul. It’s so cool! However, this book fell really flat for me. My main issue […]

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

DNF Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

This book was SO boring I just couldn’t bring myself to finish. It’s sad, because I usually really enjoy Kiersten White’s books. I’m not sure if it was because it’s Historical (which I’m pretty picky about on the very rare occasion I do pick it up), because I just wasn’t in the mood to read it (I’m going to be honest, my brain is in Raven Cycle mode at the moment), or because it simply isn’t for me (most likely, tbh). I made […]
