Review: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

Finally, a dragon story that I loved!! So far the only other book about dragons I’ve truly enjoyed was Julie Kagawa’s Talon saga. It seems like I sign up for dragons and then there aren’t any. But this one was incredible! I mean, DRAGONS. But there were actually dragons. Unlike most books that promise dragons and you only get a glimpse, the dragons were a main factor in this story! I absolutely LOVED the idea of the Namsara and Iskari,  it was […]

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

“My star-touched queen. I would break the world to give you what you want.” To be honest, when I picked this up I had NO idea if I would like it. Actually, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t. But my girl Hope raved about it, so I picked it up anyway. And I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed it! This book really shone in the last half, after the pivotal moment of the book, especially once Kamala […]

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

The first chapter of this book hooked me! I knew as soon as I finished it that I would love the book. My attention waned a lot in the middle with the Black Clan’s camp, though. It started to feel kind of generic fantasy and I started losing interest. Thankfully it didn’t last long. Once certain things started happening, it grabbed me again and didn’t let go! And what an explosive ending!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Japanese culture in this book!! […]

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 wasn’t working for me 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 […]
