Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising by Pierce Brown might be the best book in the history of ever. When I first heard about this book, I was accosted with comparisons to The Hunger Games.

Review: Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells

I’m surprised I ended up reading Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells. My TBR list is out of control, and while I read most of Wells’ Sabina Kane series, I liked it, but I didn’t love it. I liked the MCs and the plot, and I think the first time I ever got chills from the mention of a specific song in a book […]
