Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

While I didn’t quite enjoy this as much as the first book, it was still an enjoyable story! I love the world that Boecker has created, full of magic and deception. I love the magic in this book, despite the fact that it left me wanting more. I did quite enjoy the deception at the end and the final part of the plan. It all came to a good conclusion with a nice clean, tied-up ending. No loose ends here! […]

Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

She was a whirling cloud of death, a queen of shadows, and these men were already carrion. I had the same exact problem with this book as I had with Heir of Fire – painfully slow pacing. This book was FAR too long. I feel like there was a lot of unnecessary filler that could have been cut out to push the plot along a bit faster. It didn’t get exciting and start catching my interest until the last third […]

Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

CAUTION: Spoilers if you haven’t read the series! Oh my gosh, how do I even review this?! I was completely blown away by this book. I think it was my favorite of the series, besides Prisoner of Azkaban (because Sirius Black, of course). My absolute favorite part of this book was Snape’s memories after his death. HOLY. SHIT. You guys, I was fucking bawling. I know he acted like a horrible person, and I probably shouldn’t romanticize him, but his […]

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

ARC Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I was really looking forward to this book because umm, that cover?! Gorgeeeoouuus. Sadly I was tricked by a pretty cover again. Maybe the hype killed it a little for me too, or maybe Susan Dennard books just aren’t my cup of tea (I didn’t like Something Strange and Deadly much either, but thought that was just because it was Historical). Sigh. My main issue with this book is that I was horribly bored for the majority of it. I didn’t […]

Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

CAUTION: SPOILERS I actually can’t believe I’m on the last book already. I was always intimidated by the size of this series (and the size of the books in it), but it has flown by! So fast in fact that I don’t want it to end. I am in awe at how much this series has gotten under my skin! I’ve tried to read other things in between, instead of just binge reading, but I’ve found that I have trouble […]

Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

CAUTION: SPOILERS! I am seriously becoming so addicted to this series! I feel like each book gets better and better, and now I can definitely see why everyone was saying that the books were way better than the movies. There’s so many little wonderful details in the books! I must say, I’m kind of upset that I was robbed of the feeling I should have felt at the death of Sirius Black. I knew he was going to die at […]
