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 Caraval by Stephanie Garber

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

January 29, 2017 Review 32 ★★★★

Intimidating Hype I was scared to start CARAVAL. Every book that gets a lot of hype is incredibly daunting because of that fear of  “What if I don’t like it?” There have been times where I’ve had high expectations as a result of overwhelming praise from book bloggers which the book couldn’t meet and so I was left disappointed. Fortunately CARAVAL […]

5 Things About Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

5 Things About Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

January 19, 2017 Review 14 ★★★½

Three different stories, three different times HEXENHAUS features three different witch hunts in three different time periods, told in alternating chapters. 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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
