5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 7 ★★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. […]

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

April 3, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

After enjoying PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken last year, I was pretty excited for WAYFARER. PASSENGER delivered a grand adventure with time travel done right, so I was expecting the sequel to be the same. While a great read, WAYFARER got a little slowed down by smaller details. Exploring more relationships Not only were we introduced to new characters, new sides […]

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

February 17, 2017 Review 18 ★★½

Meh Once upon a time I tried to read REIGN OF SHADOWS and didn’t get past the first chapter because of boredom. I decided to give it another go and actually managed to finish it, however my reading experience wasn’t fantastic. I just couldn’t bring myself to care for some of the characters, and there were so many cliched lines. […]

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 A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 5, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

AUs everywhere! BeforeĀ A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU, alternate universes were a concept I’d mostly stumbled across in fan fiction. And just like my experience with AUs in fan fiction, I absolutely loved seeing the different worlds in this. It’s so interesting how one single choice/ action can create such drastic changes while also keeping some things similar. My favourite world […]
