Mini Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Mini Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Confession: I read this a year ago and I’m just now getting around to reviewing it. Oopsie. It’s been so long that I’d forgotten most of what happened, so I had to read a recap. I enjoyed it for the most part! I loved the concept of Caraval, and the carnival itself was fun and twisted. It had a very strange and magical quality to it! I liked that you never knew what was real or not, or who to […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us? A little backstory first: I am SUPER picky about fae books. In fact, there’s only two I can think of that I’ve genuinely enjoyed: The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Before this book came out, the hype was unreal. I was DYING to get my hands on it, and the ARC reviews were positively glowing. […]

Mini Review: Legion by Julie Kagawa

Mini Review: Legion by Julie Kagawa

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. […]

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

This book was SO. BEAUTIFUL. Should I expect anything less from Laini Taylor? It was so very much like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which I loved so much – beautiful, strange, and enchanting – but also so very different! I highly recommend both of them to anyone and everyone, especially if you love fantasy. First of all, that title! I’m going to be honest, I didn’t know much at all (okay, pretty much nothing except it was by Laini […]

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Let me make something perfectly clear: THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A FUCKING ROMANCE. Got it? Good. This is not a book about dragons. In fact, dragons make an appearance exactly three times in this entire book. Yes, three. THREE. IN THREE HUNDRED PAGES. Literally the rest of the book is ooey gooey, in your face, vomit-inducing romance. If you dig romance, you’ll […]

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Honestly this review was hard for me to write because it’s been THREE months since I read it. I remember almost nothing. I kinda wish I had just DNFed it, because between forcing myself through a book that wasn’t working for me and the obligation I felt to continue (this was an ARC tour book so I felt like I had to finish), this book was directly responsible for the horrible reading slump that I’ve been in since LAST NOVEMBER. Yes. I […]
