After seeing everyone RAVING about how amazing the sequel was and how it was just sooo much better than the first, I had some pretty high hopes. I didn’t love Caraval or anything – I was super underwhelmed by the ending, but I did enjoy it for the most part because of the intriguing world. However, this book was not only a struggle, but a MAJOR disappointment. I feel like I read a totally different book than everyone else did. […]

The stories in this one were extremely hit or miss for me. While there were a few I loved, there were also a lot I didn’t love. I did enjoy the culture and diversity in this one, though! These stories feature a myriad of POC and LGBTQ+ characters. I also quite loved the girl power that this book had going for it! Favorite stories: Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yovanoff, Why They Watch Us Burn by Elizabeth May, Death […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
