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: 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: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

December 11, 2017 Review 6 ★★★

Full disclosure: I struggle with sci-fi novels. I’m not sure why, but even the best science fictions novels are hard for me to get through. So, keep that in mind when I talk about the pacing of this novel. This feels very much like a setup book. There is a ton of world building and explanation in the beginning, exploration […]

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: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 10 ★★

  I usually eat up and enjoy any of Kasie West’s books like candy. The characters tend to have a lot of depth for a short YA romance book, but I can’t say that was true for BY YOUR SIDE. The whole premise of this novel sort of revolves around two very different people getting stuck over the weekend in […]

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

August 6, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★★

About a year ago, A COURT OF MIST AND FURY totally broke our rating scale. While A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN didn’t quite meet that new standard, it definitely came close. Plus, the second novel in this series just holds a really special place in my heart because my ship was validated it was an incredibly emotional journey for […]

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

July 16, 2017 Review 16 ★★★

WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI started off well with humor and quirky characters – it’s a fun romance but one that I felt lost its way a little.  When we are first introduced to Dimple and Rishi, they are given unique backstories and personalities that made them stand out and be memorable. They are a little nerdy and have some interesting […]
