Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

It’s been a really long time since I read a book that I hated so much that I legit wanted to throw across the room. And for whatever reason, I couldn’t stop reading it??? It was like watching a train wreck, it was SO. TERRIBLE. but I just couldn’t look away. (Or maybe I’m becoming a softie since I apparently have lost my ability to ruthlessly DNF anything I’m not enjoying….) This book was honestly terrible. The romance was terrible. […]

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

Despite feeling rather apathetic about Daughter of the Pirate King, I had high hopes for this one. Vikings!! Norse mythology!!! But sadly, it didn’t work for me much at all. Just like DotPK, I found the writing style to be very juvenile, and it just grated on my nerves. Plot-wise it feels generic and shallow, just like DotPK. I think maybe Tricia Levenseller is just not for me. :( I loved the concept and the world, didn’t give a crap […]

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I’ve been putting off this book for EVER. And I was worried to pick it up because, let’s face it, the hype is unreal. I don’t read contemp very often, but I do usually like it well enough when I read it. And the same goes for this book. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it didn’t wow me and probably won’t leave a lasting impression. I do see why people love it so much. Cath is a hardcore fangirl […]

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This is what a Beauty and the Beast retelling should be (side eyeing you, ACOTAR), and exactly what I want out of one! I recently read Hunted by Meagan Spooner and it gave me similar vibes, however this one was done a bit better (and definitely has a Beauty that is 10000% better). The characters!!!! Ugh I love them so much! I think that was my favorite part. They were all perfect because they were perfectly flawed. I freaking L O V […]

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I had actually attempted to pick up this book physically a while back, and wasn’t feeling it. The beginning is SO boring. But I’m so glad I tried again, and the audio was fantastic! I am trash for anything Beauty and the Beast, and this was an awesome retelling! All the feels! She reminds us of what we could be. I freaking LOVED beast’s parts!!! The narrator was AMAZING. Also, the fact that the Beast refers to himself as “we” was […]

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

I was sooo torn on this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it; but on the other, it was pretty freakin’ irritating. I’m gonna break it down by likes and dislikes because I have warring emotions! Things I liked: The world and concept – space! Aliens! Right up my alley. The world had an awesome Mars feel going for it. The nanites were cool, the races were cool, I enjoyed the whole world in general! Eros – I felt SO […]
