Before we get into this shit show: THIS IS NOT YA. There is lots of sexual content in this book. If you want an angsty smutty romance with zero plot, LOOK NO FURTHER. WORST case of Second Book Syndrome I’ve read in as long as I can remember. This year must be all about sequels that disappointed me! This one is the worst yet, though. I think this is the single most disappointing sequel I’ve ever read. I loved the […]

I wish I could simply enjoy the books that everyone else enjoys. *long suffering sigh* I mean, it wasn’t bad, it was just generic AF. Like every single other generic high fantasy book out there. I’ve read the same story a thousand times, and this one didn’t bring anything new to the table. There was literally nothing original in this book and nothing at all to stand out in my mind. The whole thing was entirely forgettable. I was actually enjoying […]

Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

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?), […]

Okay, so this book was pretty hit-or-miss for me. I didn’t like it in the beginning – the MC was royally pissing me off – then the middle was really good, but the ending got rocky again. The Faire was by far the best part and where this book shines. The nerd in me loved the setting, it made me miss Ren Faire! So, the beginning. I honestly hated Emily. She was petulant and childish, and sorry but she was fucking stupid. […]

THIS BOOK IS NOT YA. It is labeled as such, but contains sexual and mature content. Oh, boy. How to review this?! I don’t even know how I feel about it to be honest. I actually think that I fall into the black sheep category on this book, but for once in a good way. I think I actually liked it. (I say ‘think’ because I’m rather freaking confused and my feelings are muddled and I think that speaks volumes.) First […]
