Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Why dragons are cooler than humans: They can fly. They can breathe fire. They have scales as armor and are practically invincible. They’re badasses. THEY CAN FLY. It’s no secret that Julie Kagawa is my favorite author. I’ve read and loved every single book she’s ever published. So of course, I was DYING to get my hands on this one. I requested the ARC, tried trading on YA Book Exchange, even tried to see if any of my friends had […]

Early Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Early Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

While I’m not a huge fan of aliens, I do love creepy abduction stories when they’re done well. The alien aspect of this book had me hooked! How much would it suck to disappear one day, only to reappear 5 years later – with absolutely NO recollection of what happened – and your life changed completely without you? I can’t even imagine! That was the most interesting part of the beginning for me. I have to admit, though, I got […]

Review: Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland

Review: Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland

Man, did this book have wonderful potential. I wanted so badly to love this – it had fabulous mythology, originality, and I was in love with the fact that our main character is a Harpy. In the beginning I was rather enjoying it. The setting was awesome – Tartarus! – and there was a big monster thing called a Draken; and I thought it was awesome that the MC, Zephyr, was not only a Harpy with blue hair and wings, that […]

Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

WARNING: Possible spoilers! I’d rather be shot dead screaming for justice than die alone in a prison of my own making.  Oh goodness, where do I even start? I don’t even know if I can write a review that can do this justice. This book got to me, just like Unravel Me did. So many times I was in danger of drowning in feels!!    We found out in Destroy Me that there was a reason for the way Warner is. In […]

ARC Review + Giveaway: Avalon by Mindee Arnett

ARC Review + Giveaway: Avalon by Mindee Arnett

The fact that this novel takes place in space was enough to make me like it. Space stories are so few and far between! There’s a certain magic to the idea of being in space (Treasure Planet!) and this one really captured that magic. The first line was ‘Stealing a spaceship shouldn’t be this easy.’ Talk about getting your attention! It was also very unique. The idea of metatech and metaspace was very intriguing, as were the Pyreans and Empyria! […]

Review: Unhinged by A.G. Howard

Review: Unhinged by A.G. Howard

Let me just say this: I love Anita. LOVE. She’s one of the most awesome authors I’ve ever talked to! I enjoyed Splintered, but Unhinged was even better! And no, I’m not biased just because I like the author. The world is a deliciously macabre version of the original, and I was thrilled to dive back in! I love Anita’s writing. She can paint the scenes in my head vividly and beautifully! The world building is one of my favorite […]
