Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Do you ever have those times where you go into a book knowing full well you wouldn’t like it? Yeah, this was one of those for me. Why the hell did you read it, then? some of you may be asking. Well, there’s this annoying thing called the Hype Monster. And I let that little turd get the best of my curiosity. Things I liked: How brutal, dark, and bloody it was The lies and betrayal The not-relationship between Cardan and Jude […]

Audiobook Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I don’t think Julie could write anything that I won’t love! This was my first ever Julie book, so it holds a special place in my heart. I read this for the first time years ago, when Iron Queen had just come out, read it again before The Iron Knight was released, so this time listening to audio is my 3rd time! It’s definitely an old favorite of mine. I love the world that Julie creates. I usually don’t care […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us? A little backstory first: I am SUPER picky about fae books. In fact, there’s only two I can think of that I’ve genuinely enjoyed: The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Before this book came out, the hype was unreal. I was DYING to get my hands on it, and the ARC reviews were positively glowing. […]

Review: The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa

Aw man, Julie never disappoints! I always forget how much I miss this world until I step back into it again. I love it so much! I’m not much of a fan of fae stories these days, but I love the way Julie writes them. I’m sad to see this series end, but what a wonderful end it was! I looove how twisted the world was. The carnival tent in the Between was totally creepy! I was definitely cringing at […]

Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Ugh. Where do I start? I struggled through about 90% of this book. I’m thinking Holly Black books are maybe just not for me – I DNFed both Coldest Girl and White Cat. I wish I had DNFed this one too. The pacing was painfully slow. There wasn’t much happening for the majority of this story, with nothing but intrigue to keep you going. Actually, it didn’t seem like there was any plot at all in this book. Nothing really […]

Review: Hunter by Mercedes Lackey

Review: Hunter by Mercedes Lackey

What a fabulous concept! I think that was the driving point of this novel for me. I highly enjoyed the world and all of the monsters. I also loved the Hunters and the fact that they had a celebrity status – all of the costumes and colors reminded me a bit of the way the Jaeger pilots were portrayed in the beginning of Pacific Rim! This book was certainly cinematic – it would be awesome as a movie! There was […]
