Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

It’s not arrogant to know who you are. It’s powerful. And I am powerful. Oh my gosh, this book was SO fun! I found Durst’s prose to be quirky and engaging – I laughed out loud more than once. I absolutely loved the concept, it was fantastic! MAGIC. HEISTS. WERE. DRAGONS. Yes, that’s right. Weredragons!! How awesome is that?! I also loved that they were thieves of gold and hoarders of treasure by nature. I absolutely loved the sense of […]

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

We are all children of blood and bone. All instruments of vengeance and virtue. The first time I tried this book, I was reading it. I made it 254 pages into the ARC – which is right around halfway through – before I gave up. I was bored out of my mind, and other than the awesome premise (magic!!) and diverse setting/characters, it felt extremely generic. I couldn’t connect at all, and didn’t find the characters very inspiring. I kept […]

Review: Inferno by Julie Kagawa

Review: Inferno by Julie Kagawa

“The final battle is approaching. I only hope we are ready.” Oh gosh, where do I start? I always have so much trouble reviewing Julie’s books because I have to reign in my gushing enough to say more than just “I loved it!” XD But…I loved it!! There hasn’t been a Julie book that I’ve ever read that I didn’t adore to pieces. I love this series and while I’m sad to let it go, Inferno wrapped it up nicely! […]

[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: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Trigger warning: Rape, abuse, animal killing I have NO clue what I was expecting when I picked this book up – I know I read the synopsis when I added it but for some reason I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a ‘me’ book. Actually, I was quite sure it wasn’t going to be and I don’t even know why. The result? I was blown away! In the very beginning I was HOOKED, and positively loving it. […]

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 […]
