5 Things About Crimson Bound By Rosamund Hodge

5 Things About Crimson Bound By Rosamund Hodge

November 23, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

Fairy Tale Retelling Retellings are some of the great comfort reads I love to pick up when I’m stressed all struggling. I love being able to not only visit a familiar tale, but also explore a new take on it. CRIMSON BOUND is a bit of a mix of Red Riding Hood elements with some Hansel and Gretel influences, but […]

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

October 29, 2016 Review 8 ★★★½

Back to the mystery and intrigue One of the things I was worried about was that I would find BLACK HEART as meh as I found RED GLOVE. Fortunately for me, we get more heists and intrigue right from the get go. It was more fast paced than the second book which helped a lot and had less romance angst. […]

October 18, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

Let’s go on a steampunk adventure HELL YEAH STEAMPUNK! A genre I love and don’t get to read enough. EMILIE AND THE HOLLOW WORLD combines fantasy with steampunk. There are air ships and pistols and interesting gadgets combined with magic and parallel worlds. So many different concepts I love all together in one place! I thought it was middle grade […]

September 24, 2016 Review 36 ★★★★★

Spoiler free, just a few non-spoilery quotes! Once again, I find myself in the Post-Maas What Do I Do With My Life Crisis. As of right now, I’m sort of in denial and have convinced myself that everything is okay. I just got off a totally crazy roller coaster but I am going to be okay. “A storm is coming. […]

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

September 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★★

  Not for younger audiences NEVERNIGHT features a school for asassins and a revenge plot. I would be disappointed if the voilence was softened to suit a younger audience. Darker, more complex tales targeted at a slightly older audience are much more interesting in my opinion. NEVERNIGHT is bloody and intense. People could die at any time. But this wasn’t […]

Our Rainbow Book Stack The lands of Furthermore and Ferenwood are filled with color-magic. Who doesn’t love the rainbow book aesthetic? After being uber-jealous of all the pretty bookshelf rainbows out there, we thought it would be fun to make our own attempt! Just a stack though because that level of commitment with over 300 books is a little intimidating. […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

August 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

Second book syndrome or slump? I really enjoyed WHITE CAT but for some reason I never fully connected with RED GLOVE. It may be attributable to a slump I was in at the time, or it may be because I actually didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s difficult to tell and to be honest I think it might be a […]
