I’m so sad that I didn’t love this one. The hype for this book is UNREAL! Everyone talks about how beautiful the writing is, but it didn’t wow me. In fact, I found this story to be somewhat dull. I loved the idea of the magic system, but the middle got pretty boring when Lark was in the castle. I didn’t care at all for the romance, either. There was zero chemistry between Lark and Tiras, and it borderlined controlling […]

This was good, not great. It was a quick read, and fairly entertaining, but it felt kind of juvenile to me. I feel like there was more focus on drama and romance than the puzzles we were promised. All of the boys felt like the exact same person (with extra jerkness to Grayson, maybe) and I was continuously having issues telling them apart. I was also confused about the love triangle (square??) and the fact that every freakin’ dude in […]

I didn’t love this as much as I thought I was going to. I adored Squirrelflight’s Hope, even though I don’t usually care for side stories when I already know the outcome, so I was really hoping to love this one too. I mean, Firestar is an old fave and will always be special, so I was looking forward to being back in his head for a bit. And I did enjoy it, but it was extreeemely slow paced. Almost […]

It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

DNF @ 50% (second try) I give up. I gave it a valiant effort. I really did. The first time I made it right around the 100 page mark before I gave up from boredom. But, this book has a ridiculous amount of raving reviews, so I thought I’d give the audio a shot in hopes that it’d be better. It wasn’t. I wasn’t a fan of the narrator at ALL. He was SO boring! Some of the accents and […]

Okay, so this book took me foreeeever.  I started this behemoth September 20th. Didn’t finish until November freaking 22nd. TWO. MONTHS. To be fair, I was planning my wedding and was balls deep in wedding stuff (which was November 6th, and my glorious husband messaged Jay about it and he actually recorded a “happy marriage” video for me *insert squealing, puppy eyes, and tears*) so I didn’t have much time to read. Plus, this book is HEAVY. It probably took […]
