Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

January 15, 2018 Review 3 ★★★★

Wow, this was a huge improvement from the romance-focused THE WINNER’S CURSE and the angst-ridden THE WINNER’S CRIME. I’m really impressed how everything came together to form an explosive conclusion. This review will be a short one because I don’t want to spoil anything. I actually only have two qualms with this book, and one was the beginning. It was […]

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

January 6, 2018 Review 5 ★★★

It was a pretty epic book, but it was a book that is going to inspire some mixed feelings, simply because everything you thought you knew will be tested. THE EMPRESS […]

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

January 3, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

I forgot to take notes Like the first novel, RETRIBUTION RAILS was very addictive. It is a bit slower pacing wise than VENGEANCE ROAD, but the plot is much more complicated and layered. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I was almost late for the train one day when I just HAD to finish the final 50 pages because I […]
