Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

“Ours is a love stronger than fear and deeper than the sea.” Soo this makes me really sad to say but this story was really boring for most of the book?? *cries* Looking back I really can’t tell you what actually happened because NOTHING HAPPENED. After Flame in the Mist I expected much, much more. Not to say that I didn’t like it – I did still enjoy it for the most part because Renee’s writing is lovely, and I […]

ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

The dragon is rising. Three things Jessi loves: Japanese culture Julie Kagawa Inuyasha I knew I would love this book before I ever picked it up, because 1) Julie is my second favorite author of all time, and 2) I LOOOVE Japanese culture. There are not enough Japanese books in YA! In fact, the only other one I know of off the top of my head is my fave series, The Lotus Wars (by Jay Kristoff who happens to be […]

Gods. I don’t even know where to start. One word to describe this book? INTENSE. There were so many scenes where I had the book in a death grip, on the edge of my seat frantically flipping pages. SHIT HAPPENS, GUYS. And it’s crazy! I also forgot how beautiful Jay’s prose was. It’s a bit on the purple side, but not in a bad way at all. It’s descriptive and flowing, painting a vivid picture of the world in your […]

Mini Review: Praying for Rain by Jay Kristoff

Mini Review: Praying for Rain by Jay Kristoff

My god I missed this world so much!! I loved jumping back into it, even for such a brief time. I had forgotten how beautiful and compelling Jay’s writing was! This is a very short story, so there’s not much to it. But Jay still found a way to pull on my heartstrings. Even though I pretty much knew how it was going to end, I still enjoyed it and it still sucked to see it end! The subject of […]

Mini Review: The Last Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

Mini Review: The Last Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

OH MY GOD JAY WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BREAK MY HEART?! I should have known this would end in tears. IT ALWAYS DOES. *sigh* I’m not usually a fan of novellas because most of the time they only tell a more detailed story of what you already know. But I loooved this one! I freaking love the arashitoras, and reading in the POV of one of them again was like having a little piece of Buruu back. (I […]

Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Gods, I don’t know how to get my whirling thoughts into a coherent review! If you’re going to read this book, have a box of tissues ready. And maybe a therapist. My heart has been shattered into a million tiny pieces! How I looked while reading Kinslayer: Mr. Kristoff has outdone himself in this breathtaking sequel! Warning: This book is not rainbows and unicorns. It’s dark, desperate, and violent. Sometimes gory and disturbing. There is no HEA, horrible sacrifices are made, terrible […]
