It takes a monster to slay a monster. Holy. Freaking. CRAP. You guys, this book absolutely BLEW me away!! I mean just wow. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a book this much from the opening sentence to the very last page that wasn’t written by Jay Kristoff. I wish I could bottle up the sheer fierce joy I felt while reading this delightful book! It reminded me a lot of watching Pacific Rim for the first time […]

WOW!! This is the single most unique world in any book that I’ve read for as long as I can remember! And it’s been a very long time since a book captivated me as much as this one did. It wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns, I’m afraid…other than the first chapter (which definitely got my attention), the beginning was painfully slow. At first, I really only cared for Noon’s chapters – hers grabbed me from the very start – and […]

Brigid Kemmerer is really hit or miss for me. I think I lucked out when I enjoyed A Curse So Dark and Lonely as much as I did. Maybe I just needed to be in a certain mood for it, who knows. I didn’t like the sequel much, and I felt pretty much the same about this one. My main gripe is that this book is generic AF. It’s such a vanilla story – the world, the characters, even the […]

This one was okay, not great. I don’t remember much about it, to be honest, because I was severely bored throughout the entire story. However, narration by Jonathan Keeble was absolutely fantastic and kept me going. Spot on voices for each character and brought the story to life! I’ll probably seek out more works by this narrator. He saved the book for me, because I probably would have DNFed if I’d physically read it. The world was interesting but the […]

This book was absolutely NOT what I was expecting at all, but I really enjoyed it! To me this cover screams viking story, but that’s not even remotely close. (The cover does not fit the story at ALL in my opinion, sorry) I didn’t know much going in, just that I loved the cover and that it had really high reviews. I am slightly disappointed that I didn’t get a viking story, lol. (I know, I know, don’t judge a book […]

What the hell was I thinking even picking this up, lmao. I knew that this probably wasn’t a me book going in, but I couldn’t help myself – morbid curiosity got the better of me. The hype for this book is unreal. (It also has a gorgeous cover, which I also blame for tricking me.) And why? It’s SO GENERIC?! Like it literally brings NOTHING new to the table. Classic Mary Sue main character (oh and did I mention she’s the Chosen One?), […]
