Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Whuh. Where do I even start? Um. I have mixed feelings about the conclusion to the Raven Cycle. I loved it, but it left me wanting. Yet it was wonderful either way. “I like you an awful lot, Blue Sargent.” MORE BLUE AND GANSEY FEELS. Gahhh, I’m so glad they finally are out in the open! Happy ship, happy happy ship. *makes heart eyes* I loved every single Blue/Gansey moment so much I thought my heart would explode. MORE BLUE […]

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bone will rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown While I still really enjoyed this book, it didn’t quite have the magic that The Girl at Midnight had. I gave the first book my esteemed Hail to the King Award, and it was one of my favorite books of YEAR. I suppose it’s kind of hard to top that, eh? The characters felt very real, and […]

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

STUFF HAPPENS, MAN. It’s finally happening! And it’s getting intense! I’m beyond excited to see where the search for Glendower goes. I feel the conclusion drawing nearer and I feel excited and anxious all at the same time. I want them to find Glendower. I don’t want it to end. I JUST WANT GANSEY TO LIVE. I love this series so much. Maggie’s writing is so beautiful, there’s so many feels and quotable passages! It’s also got plenty of humor […]

Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

While I didn’t quite enjoy this as much as the first book, it was still an enjoyable story! I love the world that Boecker has created, full of magic and deception. I love the magic in this book, despite the fact that it left me wanting more. I did quite enjoy the deception at the end and the final part of the plan. It all came to a good conclusion with a nice clean, tied-up ending. No loose ends here! […]

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: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them. Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys. Okay first of all, I cannot believe I waited so long to read this series! I’m really surprised by how much I’m enjoying it. I didn’t expect that! Can we please just talk about how FREAKING EPIC dream thieving is?! I loved that so much it’s not even funny. It’s quite possibly the coolest idea ever, and […]
