5 Things About The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

5 Things About The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

May 23, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★

This is a spoiler free review; there is spoiler section that follows but it is hidden in a spoiler tag. This book might lead to my insanity.

5 Things About The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

5 Things About The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

May 19, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

“There’s no escaping death. Either I’ll be defeated and therefore die, or I’ll triumph but live with the guilt of sentencing the girl to the end. There is no such thing as a winner in the Game.” The characters lack depth. There are a wide variety of characters in THE CROWN’S GAME, but unfortunately, I couldn’t connect to any of […]

Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

May 13, 2016 Review 37 ★★★★★

If someone else has it, rip it out of their hands. Bargain using your firstborn child, or your soul if you already gave up your firstborn child for the last Maas book. You’re not going to want to miss this. Read more »

3 Things About Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

May 10, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★

“Was it harder to die, or harder to be the one who survived?” Boy, did I go into this one unaware. Ruta Sepetys was a familiar name due to the hype surrounding SALT TO THE SEA. When I was at the library the other day I saw BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY and decided to pick it up after hearing so […]
