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 […]

It’s not arrogant to know who you are. It’s powerful. And I am powerful. Oh my gosh, this book was SO fun! I found Durst’s prose to be quirky and engaging – I laughed out loud more than once. I absolutely loved the concept, it was fantastic! MAGIC. HEISTS. WERE. DRAGONS. Yes, that’s right. Weredragons!! How awesome is that?! I also loved that they were thieves of gold and hoarders of treasure by nature. I absolutely loved the sense of […]

“The final battle is approaching. I only hope we are ready.” Oh gosh, where do I start? I always have so much trouble reviewing Julie’s books because I have to reign in my gushing enough to say more than just “I loved it!” XD But…I loved it!! There hasn’t been a Julie book that I’ve ever read that I didn’t adore to pieces. I love this series and while I’m sad to let it go, Inferno wrapped it up nicely! […]

Okay, I didn’t expect to enjoy this one so much! I don’t know why I put it off for so long. Mostly, the hype scared me. But it was so well deserved! I am IN LOVE with the premise of this book. I loved the idea that three women, who were drowned in the sea for being accused of witches, come back every year to seek revenge on the town that killed them. So awesome!! This book was so beautiful […]

My poor dears. My grim little lovelies. I have pretty mixed feelings about this book. The main emotion that I feel after reading? Disappointment. This was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases, and I expected it to be amazing. Sadly, it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good – just…not great. The concept and world were the gems of this novel. The whole world of magic and the idea of the beasties was incredible!! Honestly this book […]

ARC Review: Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis

The dead don’t lie. I have loved everything I’ve ever read that Beth Revis has written, so this was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases. And holy WOW, it did not disappoint!!! I’ve gotta say, the beginning of this book was a major struggle for me. It started off horrifically, painfully slow – to the point that I had thoughts of DNFing! I spent about 50 pages forcing my way through on blind faith that it would get better because […]
