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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
