Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

“We’ve inherited the darkest legacy, but they don’t know that we’ve learned how to thrive in shadows and create our own light.” The Darkest Minds trilogy is one of my all time favorite series, so I was thrilled to see Alexandra bringing some of my all time fave characters back for another round! I was excited to read through Zu’s perspective, I loved her in the originals. And it was positively wonderful to step back into the thrilling and cinematic world […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

The die is cast. But today we will shake the table upon which it lands. Okay, I have been putting off this review for far too long… *hides face* To be completely honest, in comparison to the other two books, I was underwhelmed. IT KILLS ME TO ADMIT THAT. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I still loved it!! Of course I still loved it. But the first half was slooow in a way that the first two never […]

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

BEWARE: This book includes heavy elements such as physical and emotional abuse, non-consentual sex in an arranged marriage (basically, rape), and To touch upon the topic of abuse: I feel Gaughen handled it very well. It was never romanticized – in fact, our main character didn’t let it happen or pretend it didn’t happen. She stood up against it the best she could – knowing that she couldn’t really do anything because she was basically trapped – and verbalized against it. […]

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Okay, so I think the hype monster got me on this one. Or maybe because I was so blown away by the second and third books that I was just expecting more? I was disappointed in this one. I had sky high expectations, and it didn’t deliver. Honestly? I was kinda bored. I feel like not a whole lot happened – it was mostly just Juliette adjusting to life as Supreme Commander. There was little to no plot in this […]
