[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

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 […]

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

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 […]

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

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 […]

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 […]
