Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Love withstands all things. Even death. Especially death. This didn’t quite have the magic that The Last Namsara did, but I still really enjoyed it! It was a great companion novel! Don’t expect to see much of the characters you loved from the first book. Or dragons. If you can destroy that expectation before you ever go in, you’ll enjoy this one a lot more. I was pretty disappointed that there were no dragons or Asha. I loved the magic involved and […]

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

There’s still hope as long as we’re alive. Okay so this one didn’t quite wow me like This Mortal Coil did, I’m afraid. I struggled a lot in the first half – I was feeling slumpy already and I wasn’t loving it like I did the first book. I was bored. So, I decided to put it down for a while. I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

To be completely honest, I was worried going in that I would be the black sheep again because the hype for this book is U N R E A L. Thankfully, I wasn’t! For once, the hype is 100% justified. This book is so important, so impactful. It really makes you think about the world and how flawed it is. And honestly, this book got under my skin. I didn’t expect to care so much, because I am just not a contemporary […]

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 […]

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

“I want to know that if I drift off to sleep by accident one day, I’ll wake up in the same place. I want to live each day once, the best that I can live it.” What an interesting concept!! This book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before! I loved the idea of it, and I couldn’t put it down. How terrible would it be to fall asleep at night and wake up as someone else the next day, […]

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 […]
