Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

So…I really don’t know how to write this review completely spoiler-free. So readers beware! While this book wasn’t quite as good as the rest of the series, I did enjoy it and it was a good ending to a great series! “You are my peace and my home. You are the everything.” You have to really feel for Jack and Nikki…despite everything they’ve done to be together, the world just keeps working against them. It’s very tragic! But the great […]

Review: Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland

Review: Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland

Man, did this book have wonderful potential. I wanted so badly to love this – it had fabulous mythology, originality, and I was in love with the fact that our main character is a Harpy. In the beginning I was rather enjoying it. The setting was awesome – Tartarus! – and there was a big monster thing called a Draken; and I thought it was awesome that the MC, Zephyr, was not only a Harpy with blue hair and wings, that […]

Review: Afterglow by Karsten Knight

Review: Afterglow by Karsten Knight

I had some trouble connecting to this one. I still really enjoyed it, but for the most part I didn’t love it like I did the first two books. I didn’t feel much throughout the novel except a bit of shock…until the end came. I saw the sacrifice coming, but it still affected me. I was surprised by the sadness I felt!  Ash was still the same fierce, fiesty MC that I loved from the previous two books. She stayed strong no […]

Review: The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

Review: The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

This book was adorable! It was a cute and fluffy feel-good read. I can always count on Kiersten White’s stories to make me feel happy warm fuzzies! “I can be whole without depending on someone else, thank you very much.” And that is how I like my leads to be! Isadora and I would be great friends in real life. I loved that she didn’t immediately attach herself to Ry, despite his interest in her. She was capable of standing on her […]

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

First of all, this book is NOT about the Underworld. It’s about a girl who spends 20 minutes in the Underworld then spends the rest of the story adjusting to life after a NDE (near death experience). I cannot express how disappointed I am that the Underworld parts were so tiny. There were far too many things that were either absurd or made absolutely no sense. 1) John’s age didn’t add up. When she was in the cemetery for her […]
