5 Things About The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

January 18, 2018 Review 6 ★★★

Russian Folklore has a heavy influence Historical fantasy is one of my top genres and I love exploring the folore that captivated our ancestors. There are so many traditions and practices that influences how we developed as humans. I love being able to explore those rituals and beliefs in stories about creatures and gods from ages past. I wanted a […]

Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

January 15, 2018 Review 2 ★★★★

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: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

January 9, 2018 Review 3 ★★★

So I’ve been doing really good when it comes to continuing series instead of starting all the new pretty ones. Trust me when I say that’s a challenge. Anyways, after I finished this one I looked at my review for the first book in the series, WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER. Sadly, looking at my feelings for that book and […]

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

December 18, 2017 Review 10 ★★½

I’ll start off by saying that I really enjoyed THE WINNER’S CURSE, the first novel in this series. However, this installment, THE WINNER’S CRIME, feels very much like a filler book. In fact, I read it a few weeks ago and can barely tell you anything that happened in it. I’m definitely in the minority with this one, but I […]

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

November 6, 2017 Review 10 ★★★★

Hold up. A Sarah J. Maas book I actually rated four stars and not five? Well, yes. But let me explain. First of all, you need to know TOWER OF DAWN runs parallel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. It is not a sequel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. So remove the latter from your memory for a moment and go back to […]

Review:  A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

Review: A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

October 25, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★★

“What are we drinking to?” “The living,” said Rhy. “The dead,” said Alucard and Lila at the same time. The only adjective I can think of to describe A CONJURING OF LIGHT is beautiful. What a wonderful ending to an even more amazing story. It was everything I knew (and didn’t know) I wanted from the final book in this […]

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

October 19, 2017 Review 10 ★★★½

First, I have to talk about how much I absolutely adored SIX OF CROWS. It was different than anything I’ve ever read and the characters and the dynamic they had with each other were glorious. So, needless to say, I had pretty high expectations for CROOKED KINGDOM, which might be why I liked the book but didn’t completely love it. […]
