Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

As far as high fantasies go, this one was fairly well done but it felt very generic. The pacing was fast, making the 432 pages go by pretty quick. The main thing that ruined my enjoyment of this book is that I felt like I’d already read it before: In Throne of Glass. There were too many similarities – strong, ass-kicking orphaned heroine, a dead queen talking to her in her dreams, a princely untouchable love interest, …and a quasi love triangle […]

DNF Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien

DNF Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien

This isn’t the first Caragh O’Brien book I’ve tried. I attempted to read Birthmarked maybe 2 years ago, and DNFed it after 20-30 pages because it just wasn’t catching my interest. I had the same problem with this one. After only 8% I was already bored to tears, but I told myself I would give it until 20% before making a decision to see if it improved. It didn’t. I read nearly 90 pages of this book before I decided to […]

Review: Venom by Fiona Paul

Review: Venom by Fiona Paul

Evil flows silently among us like venom. This is a very tough review to write for me, and this book was hard to rate (you can see that my overall assessment ratings are all over the place). First of all, I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time because 1) I love the author. She’s one of the most friendly and sweetest authors I’ve ever had the privilege to talk to; and 2) because all of my Merp […]

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 […]

Review: Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

This novella was very hard to rate for me. While I still enjoyed it because it’s the Shatter Me world, Adam pissed me off. Really pissed me off. If I hadn’t been Team Warner already after Destroy Me and Unravel Me, this would have firmly secured me there 100%. I can definitely foresee lots of former Team Adam people changing sides, because I don’t know how anyone could stand to be Team Adam after this. Going into this novella, I truly […]

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 […]
