I had really high hopes for this book. (Also, that cover is STUNNING!!) While it didn’t quite live up to my expectations, I did still enjoy it for the most part. The world was interesting – I liked the dark academia setting and the structure of the society. However, I didn’t care a whole lot for the romance. (And I say romance loosely; it’s not romantic at all, it’s purely sexual.) I’m usually a hardcore fan of morally grey MMCs, […]

What the hell was I thinking even picking this up, lmao. I knew that this probably wasn’t a me book going in, but I couldn’t help myself – morbid curiosity got the better of me. The hype for this book is unreal. (It also has a gorgeous cover, which I also blame for tricking me.) And why? It’s SO GENERIC?! Like it literally brings NOTHING new to the table. Classic Mary Sue main character (oh and did I mention she’s the Chosen One?), […]

Okay, so this book took me foreeeever.  I started this behemoth September 20th. Didn’t finish until November freaking 22nd. TWO. MONTHS. To be fair, I was planning my wedding and was balls deep in wedding stuff (which was November 6th, and my glorious husband messaged Jay about it and he actually recorded a “happy marriage” video for me *insert squealing, puppy eyes, and tears*) so I didn’t have much time to read. Plus, this book is HEAVY. It probably took […]

Oh my goodness, I found an Urban Fantasy that I actually enjoyed! And that breaks out of the genre! I usually hate Urban Fantasy, because they all read exactly the same. For once I was pleasantly surprised! This one stands out and brought a fresh perspective to the table that I thoroughly enjoyed. First of all, SINDARI. Um, sentient magical tiger sidekick, YES PLEASE! Actually, he was the reason I picked this up in the first place. Ya’ll know I’m a […]

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 […]

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 […]
