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 […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

THE DIABOLIC is a fairly brutal YA science fiction novel. Sci fi is a genre that I have always struggled with, but I found THE DIABOLIC to be a fairly easy read to get into, despite overall mixed feelings. The World The world in this novel is pretty complex; there are different religions, classes of people, and government hierarchy. I […]

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. […]

5 Things About Emilie and the Hollow World

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 […]

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 5, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

AUs everywhere! Before 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 […]

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

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

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 […]
