Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

It took me two tries to get into this book. My first attempt I DNFed it within 25-30 pages, because the way Alosa regarded men grated on my nerves. The second time, I went in with low expectations and an open mind, promising myself to take it at face value and not look at it too closely. Honestly, the first half of this book is absolutely ridiculous. It was a constant back and forth of Alosa escaping and getting thrown […]

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Do you ever have those times where you go into a book knowing full well you wouldn’t like it? Yeah, this was one of those for me. Why the hell did you read it, then? some of you may be asking. Well, there’s this annoying thing called the Hype Monster. And I let that little turd get the best of my curiosity. Things I liked: How brutal, dark, and bloody it was The lies and betrayal The not-relationship between Cardan and Jude […]

Mini Review: Legion by Julie Kagawa

Mini Review: Legion by Julie Kagawa

Another great installment to a fabulous dragon series! Julie never disappoints! As always, there was plenty of action. This book was super intense! Shit hit the fan O__O Can we please talk about how awesome Jade is and how I need her to have her own series stat?! She’s so delightfully sarcastic in the most hilarious deadpan way, I love her so much, I think she’s my fave character of the series! NEED MORE JADE. Of course Dante is an asshole. […]

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Okay, so I’d enjoy anything Mortal Instruments just because I love the world. But sadly, I’ve fallen out of love with this series. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it while reading – but ever since City of Glass, the books have failed to leave a lasting impression on me. It’s kind of like beating a dead horse at this point. I strongly believe that Cassie should have left this a trilogy, the way it was originally meant to […]

Review: Soldier by Julie Kagawa

Review: Soldier by Julie Kagawa

Oh how I love anything and everything Julie writes! I have yet to find something of hers that I didn’t like, and I’m pretty sure that will never happen. IT’S JUST NOT POSSIBLE. I have to say, this series just keeps getting better and better! I love Ember’s story and the world that Julie has created. I mean, can you go wrong with dragons?! “Then, as you Americans say, the shit is about to hit the fan.” I loved Jade! […]
