Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

November 6, 2017 Review 3 ★★★★

Hold up. A Sarah J. Maas book I actually rated four stars and not five? Well, yes. But let me explain. First of all, you need to know TOWER OF DAWN runs parallel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. It is not a sequel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. So remove the latter from your memory for a moment and go back to […]

Review:  A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

Review: A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

October 25, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★★

“What are we drinking to?” “The living,” said Rhy. “The dead,” said Alucard and Lila at the same time. The only adjective I can think of to describe A CONJURING OF LIGHT is beautiful. What a wonderful ending to an even more amazing story. It was everything I knew (and didn’t know) I wanted from the final book in this […]

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

October 19, 2017 Review 5 ★★★½

First, I have to talk about how much I absolutely adored SIX OF CROWS. It was different than anything I’ve ever read and the characters and the dynamic they had with each other were glorious. So, needless to say, I had pretty high expectations for CROOKED KINGDOM, which might be why I liked the book but didn’t completely love it. […]

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 5 ★★

  I usually eat up and enjoy any of Kasie West’s books like candy. The characters tend to have a lot of depth for a short YA romance book, but I can’t say that was true for BY YOUR SIDE. The whole premise of this novel sort of revolves around two very different people getting stuck over the weekend in […]

Review: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

October 10, 2017 Review 5 ★★★

  Alexandra Bracken can’t really write anything poorly, so I was looking forward to see how she tackled writing a middle-grade novel. The results? I enjoyed THE DESPERATE TALE OF PROSPER REDDING, but it wasn’t quite what I expected. First off, I feel like I have to warn people of the HUGE cliffhanger this book leaves off on. Knowing that […]

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

August 6, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★★

About a year ago, A COURT OF MIST AND FURY totally broke our rating scale. While A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN didn’t quite meet that new standard, it definitely came close. Plus, the second novel in this series just holds a really special place in my heart because my ship was validated it was an incredibly emotional journey for […]

Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

July 28, 2017 Review 8 ★★

When I first started reading HUNTED, I was really liking it. It had a strong start with family ties and excellent development. But then I kept reading. Halfway through the book, I realized that pretty much nothing had happened and then I started asking myself “Am I reading the same book as everyone else?”  My biggest problem can’t even be […]
