5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

February 17, 2017 Review 18 ★★½

Meh Once upon a time I tried to read REIGN OF SHADOWS and didn’t get past the first chapter because of boredom. I decided to give it another go and actually managed to finish it, however my reading experience wasn’t fantastic. I just couldn’t bring myself to care for some of the characters, and there were so many cliched lines. […]

5 Things About The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

5 Things About The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

February 9, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★

The most high fantasy thing I’ve read in a while I can’t remember the last time I read a novel where humans weren’t a species featured at all. THE ALCHEMISTS OF LOOM has three races/ species: dragons, fenthri, and chimera (!!). They’re humanoid in shape but that’s almost where the resemblance ends (fenthri would be the closest). The tensions and history between […]

Like many others, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and would even venture to say the hype is well deserved. Read more »

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

January 29, 2017 Review 32 ★★★★

Intimidating Hype I was scared to start CARAVAL. Every book that gets a lot of hype is incredibly daunting because of that fear of  “What if I don’t like it?” There have been times where I’ve had high expectations as a result of overwhelming praise from book bloggers which the book couldn’t meet and so I was left disappointed. Fortunately CARAVAL […]

5 Things About The Rose And The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

January 27, 2017 Review 30 ★★★★★

Feelings intensify THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL SO MANY THINGS!! From squealing because A+ romance, to terror and suspense, and incredible sadness because of character deaths and things. Seriously, I was struggling to hold back tears while driving. I couldn’t deal (in the best way possible). Connections with more characters This increased connection to characters is the reason for the […]

5 Things About Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

5 Things About Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

January 19, 2017 Review 14 ★★★½

Three different stories, three different times HEXENHAUS features three different witch hunts in three different time periods, told in alternating chapters. These alternating chapters can be a bit worrying as sometimes you like one character more than the others and so some chapters become boring. In HEXENHAUS this was not the case, as I really enjoyed all the stories and […]
