I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy this with it being historical, but I picked it up anyway because I LOVED The Ten Thousand Doors of January. And Alix delivered yet again! It wasn’t quite as good as Ten Thousand Doors, but it was still haunting and beautiful! Harrow’s prose is absolutely lovely and engaging and it just draws you in! I loved the magic of this story. It made me want to crawl into the pages and live there! I’m […]

This book was SO. TEDIOUS. The narrator was okay – not bad, but not great either. And the book took FOREVER! And I feel like nothing really happened. I just listened to the audiobook a month or two ago and I remember almost nothing. The characters were hard to keep straight, too. There were several sets of names that sounded almost identical (it’s fantasy so probably spelled differently) and I kept mixing them up. And I just didn’t care about […]

I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]

“We hunted the flame together, found the light in the darkness, but we are far from done, laa? Now we unleash it. We free the stars, shatter the darkness holding us captive, and return the world to the splendor it once was.” What a beautiful ending to an amazing duology! If you haven’t read We Hunt the Flame yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Hafsah’s storytelling is simply stunning! Lush and magical world, unique and fleshed out characters, action-packed plot. […]

It was so great to dive back into the world of the Iron Fey! I love the magical setting so much, and I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it. It was also fantastic to see the characters again, and interesting to see how much had changed. From the outside looking in, Meghan and Ash seem to have almost god-like status – elevated and untouchable. It’s so vastly different to read about them as secondary characters instead of main ones. […]

This was basically a fantasy version of Westworld! I was actually skeptical about picking this one up when I first got it – I honestly hate the original cover and for some reason I just didn’t think I’d enjoy it. Then my lovely bookish friend Katie (@readerrewind) chose it for me for the 12 recs from 12 friends challenge on Instagram so I picked it up – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I would have finished this entire thing […]
