ARC Review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

ARC Review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

In every breath, hope abides. JAY WHAT DO YOU DO TO MEEEE. *rocks back and forth* I daresay that this one was EVEN BETTER than the first! If you have not read Nevernight, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR GET ON IT RIGHT NOW. It’s super hard to talk about a some aspects without spoiling things! So I’m going to do a little discussion in spoiler tags for those of you who have read it. DO NOT READ THEM if you […]

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

This book was SO. BEAUTIFUL. Should I expect anything less from Laini Taylor? It was so very much like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which I loved so much – beautiful, strange, and enchanting – but also so very different! I highly recommend both of them to anyone and everyone, especially if you love fantasy. First of all, that title! I’m going to be honest, I didn’t know much at all (okay, pretty much nothing except it was by Laini […]

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Honestly this review was hard for me to write because it’s been THREE months since I read it. I remember almost nothing. I kinda wish I had just DNFed it, because between forcing myself through a book that was terrible and the obligation I felt to continue (this was an ARC tour book so I felt like I had to finish), this book was directly responsible for the horrible reading slump that I’ve been in since LAST NOVEMBER. Yes. I finished this […]

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

WARNING: This book is ADULT book. Do not make the mistake of thinking it is YA, because it is positively, unequivocally, NOT. It contains explicit sexual content, strong language, and loooots of violence. #stabstabstab Never flinch. Never fear. Never forget. Honestly, I don’t think any words I could say could ever do this book justice. But I will try my best! This book absolutely BLEW. ME. AWAY. (Just like I knew it was going to.) If you didn’t already know, […]

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I liked what life felt like with him in the desert. Like we were equals. Like we fit together. Too tangled to pull apart so easily. This book has a very western/Arabian feel to it – it’s kind of like Walk on Earth a Stranger meets The Fire Wish. (Loved WoEaS, didn’t care for FW.) I lovelovelove the girl-disguised-as-a-boy stories! This book wasn’t really Historical, but kind of had that feel to it when it came to women’s rights. Life is […]

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Good freaking lord, am I the ONLY person who didn’t like this book? I don’t understand the hype this book has. It was like Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes all over again. This book was SO generic. It was not memorable at all and doesn’t stand out in the sea of other High Fantasy books.  Actually, as far as HF goes, this one was a terrible one. There’s so many other, better HFs out there! There was NO world building in this […]
