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 The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

5 Things About The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

February 9, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★

The most high fantasy thing I’ve read in a while I can’t remember the last time I read a novel where humans weren’t a species featured at all. THE ALCHEMISTS OF LOOM has three races/ species: dragons, fenthri, and chimera (!!). They’re humanoid in shape but that’s almost where the resemblance ends (fenthri would be the closest).

Fortunately CARAVAL […]

Seriously, I was struggling to hold back tears while driving. I couldn’t deal (in the best way possible). Connections with more characters This increased connection to characters is the reason for the […]

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

December 15, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★½

Inspired by classic tales The synopsis states that THE WRATH AND THE DAWN is inspired by A Thousand Arabian Nights, which is a story I’ve always been meaning to read because the few retellings I’ve read have been amazing. THE WRATH OF THE DAWN was no exception, but I wish there had been more of the story telling involved throughout […]
