5 Things About Gilded by Christina Farley

5 Things About Gilded by Christina Farley

August 20, 2017 Review 5 ★★★

Korean Mythology I love all types of mythology, and it was so exciting to see GILDED come out with it’s heavy Korean influence. Korean culture is something I know very little part. Luckily for use, the mythology plays a heavy part in the story of GILDED! I could not deal with the romance The romance is what ruined the book […]

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 ★★★★★

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 […]

5 Things About Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

August 2, 2017 Review 6 ★★

Not a retelling like I thought When I first heard this title, I thought I was getting a retelling of Snow White. It’s not. The closest thing to a retelling are the pills that Snow takes in the beginning (she named them after the seven dwarves and the associated emotions). It’s actually the start of a series too, which I […]

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 […]

Minotes #1: Sabriel Hunted Lady Midnight Under a Painted Sky

July 24, 2017 Review 4

Sometimes I decide not to review every book I read (we need a break sometimes right?) but since I’m low on time, it’s hard to keep a stock of reviews on the blog. I thought I might do mini reviews to help fill the spaces. Typical mini reviews can be difficult to write though. I’d end up rambling and turning […]
