5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 22 ★★½

I think it was a miss After hearing mixed reviews (both online and from friends who DNFed early on) I was really hesitant to start TALON. I love Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey and Blood of Eden books, so I really was hoping this was okay, but the mixed reception had me worried. And unfortunately everything my friends said was true. […]

5 Things About Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

April 12, 2017 Review 31 ★★★★½

I forgot how gorgeous Laini Taylor’s writing is I remembered Laini Taylor’s writing was amazing, but I forgot exactly how beautiful it is! Nothing I say could possible do it justice but it’s the most well written thing I’ve read in a long time. I’m in awe of her talent with words. What makes a monster? One of the main […]

5 Things About A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

5 Things About A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

July 18, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★★

So much pain and emotion This book was challenging to read for the first half. All the characters have things they have to work through, they’re not in great places. Which isn’t unsurprising after what happened Under the Mountain. The emotional turmoil caused me a lot of pain. So many feels. I pitied Tamlin for a number of reasons, but […]

Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

June 20, 2016 Review 20 ★★★½

“That is not the way of it. Your future is not set in stone, my dearest star. A coin turns on itself a number of times before it lands.” THE WRATH AND THE DAWN was a favorite read of mine last year, largely in part due to the couple I shipped (they are pretty epic). But what of the sequel? […]

5 Things About Uprooted by Naomi Novik

5 Things About Uprooted by Naomi Novik

May 8, 2016 Review 24 ★★★½

It reminded me of Juliet Marillier novels… but not as magical I enjoyed UPROOTED. But the entire time I was reading it I couldn’t help but start comparing it to Juliet Mariller’s novels, particularly HEART’S BLOOD, because the story is similar in style and plot. Unfortunately for Uprooted, it couldn’t even begin to compare to the level Juliet Mariller has set […]

Review: Thorn by Intisar Khanani

Review: Thorn by Intisar Khanani

May 2, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★

When I saw THORN on Netgalley I had to request it because I’d heard so many good things about it and it’s hard to say no to a fairy tale retelling. I can confirm that breaking my requesting ban was a good idea for this book.  THORN is a solid retelling of the goose girl fairy tale. It has all […]
