5 Things About Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier

5 Things About Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier

May 26, 2018 Review 9 ★★★★★

 HELL YEAH SURPRISE 5 STAR The best 5 star reads are the ones that take you by surprise. I don’t know why I expected to have mixed feelings on this, I hadn’t even seen any reviews for it. It’s a real diamond in the rough. Great characters, a quest, side plot romance that doesn’t take over the plot, and a […]

5 Things About Song of Blood and Stone by L. Penelope

May 21, 2018 Review 8 ★★½

It was following some hard acts Two of the three books I read before SONG OF BLOOD AND STONE were 5 star reads. Not the easiest of novels to follow. My standards were high for this fantasy which was a bit unfair. It struggled to be even half as good. The writing was mediocre Those five star reads I mentioned? […]

5 Things about Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

5 Things about Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

April 20, 2018 Review 10 ★★★★★

This is a hard review to write There is no way this review is in any way objective and unbiased because I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I read it in two sittings. It would have been one if I didn’t have to sleep. SKY IN THE DEEP was just the perfect light(er) read for me (though when I say light, […]

Review: Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

Review: Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

April 12, 2018 Review 8 ★★★½

RED SISTER was a book that intrigued me immediately; not only did it have great reviews but the promise of killer nuns was something I definitely wanted to experience. While slow in some sections, RED SISTER did not disappoint. The book leads with a guide that you can return to should you need definitions of the any of the terms. […]

5 Things About Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

April 2, 2018 Review 12 ★★★★

A pleasant surprise! I don’t know why, but something had me convinced that SNOW LIKE ASHES would be a disappointment. I’m actually rather glad that I had this opinion going in, because it meant I was so incredibly surprised when the story turned out to be good! Part of this is the fantastic narrator, and part finding the book at […]

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

February 27, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

“No matter how careful I am, eventually I’ll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.” Not what I expected at all I think from the synopsis and hype I was sort of expecting THE CRUEL PRINCE to be a mix of A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES and AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. However, it definitely […]

5 Things about Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

5 Things about Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

February 21, 2018 Review 8 ★★½

Another Queen of Hearts Retelling There was a big trend of these for a bit not long ago. Or at least, it felt like there was. The only other one I can think of is HEARTLESS (which, to be fair, was released after QUEEN OF HEARTS). But anyway, in this novel it wasn’t too clear this was exactly a villain […]
