Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

June 20, 2017 Review 10 DNF

Three years ago I wrote a post about how I struggle to DNF books. Since that post I’ve DNFed maybe 3 books out of 250. As you can see, DNFing is still a struggle for me, but when it came to THE DISGRACE OF KITTY GREY it was an easy decision I made at 28%. It had already been sitting […]

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

February 23, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★½

These alternating chapters can be a bit worrying as sometimes you like one character more than the others and so some chapters become boring. In HEXENHAUS this was not the case, as I really enjoyed all the stories and […]

5 Things About And I Darken by Kiersten White

5 Things About And I Darken by Kiersten White

August 20, 2016 Review 20 ★★★★½

White’s writing has come so far I think the last time I read Kiersten White was SUPERNATURALLY, or maybe MIND GAMES. They were good, but omg has White come far with her writing! AND I DARKEN was great. Honestly the perfect writing style for historical novels, or even historical based fantasies. I’ll be checking out White’s fantasy books soon and […]

Review: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

Review: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

July 4, 2016 Review 22 ★★

“There is strong danger in a person who can create such powerful deceit they can no longer distinguish their own lies from the truth.” The idea behind IVORY AND BONE hooked me pretty quick: “A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.” Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite stories of all time so, clearly, I was excited for […]
