5 Things About Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

5 Things About Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

June 28, 2016 Review 34 ★★★★½

Western feel with interesting mythology This world is brilliant. The writing itself is reminiscent of westerns, which I’ve come to love after books like VENGEANCE ROAD and WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER. And then the mythology is Persian I think (I’m not too sure if this is the right culture. I could be way off), with Djinn and some super […]

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 Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

June 16, 2016 Review 30 ★★★★

My first LGBTQ+ book I don’t know how I’ve managed to continue in modern YA without coming across a LGBTQ+ book, well at least one featuring LGBTQ main characters romance. It’s probably because I mainly stick to fantasy and don’t venture into contemporary romance for a while. Anyway moving on. The romance was good! A little strange at first because […]

Sassy McSassface These characters have always been entertaining but now they’re reaching new levels, especially Harry omg. As he gets older he’s developing an attitude and talking back. And some of the lines he comes up with are absolutely hilarious. Teenage Angst This was the least enjoyable part of the novel honestly. Like yeah teenagers have their horrible phase but […]

5 Things About The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

May 23, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★

This is a spoiler free review; there is spoiler section that follows but it is hidden in a spoiler tag. This book might lead to my insanity. When I read the last page of THE RAVEN KING and closed the book, I was a little … dazed. I cycled through various emotions before landing on and running with confusion. THE […]

5 Things About The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke

May 21, 2016 Review 28 ★★★

The world is cool What isn’t there to love about the world of THE ASSASSIN’S CURSE? First off all, pirates. Second, asassins. Then all the magic, desert landscape, ocean scenes, floating islands, mechanical war ships. SO MANY COOL THINGS. Not to mention it was actually quite diverse. Creepy, dark magic The main magic we get to see is blood magic […]
