Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

I was Team Mal to the DEATH in Shadow and Bone. Yeah, the Darkling was hot in a not-so-vaguely sinister way, but friends-to-lovers will win over Bad Boys every, single time. HA. You’d think that I’d have learned by now not to speak in absolutes . . . but you’d be wrong. Siege and Storm, the […]

Audiobook Review: Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop

Audiobook Review: Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop

Ordinarily, this audiobook would never have landed on my to-be-read pile, but after listening to (and loving) Anne Bishop’s THE OTHER series, I found myself in desperate need of more. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a High Fantasy novel, so don’t let my less than stellar review discourage you because quite frankly […]

Review: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Review: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

First and foremost, you need to know that The Queen of the Tearling is NOT a YA Fantasy.  As far as I can tell, HarperCollins is not marketing the book that way, but when I read this, “Young Adult” was listed as the second shelf on the Goodreads’ genre list (which of course means that Goodreads users are […]

Review: Awaken by Skye Malone

Review: Awaken by Skye Malone

It hasn’t been two or three weeks since I made a statement that I wasn’t a fan of mermaid books, in a review for another site. I am about to take back those words. This book is YA, but as usual I completely enjoyed the whole thing. Chloe is a teenager from Kansas, with extreme […]

Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Ten(ish) years ago, before the explosion of hair removal services, I used to go to this tiny, South Korean lady who rented a space in a nearby salon. The moment she got me in her room, she’d keep up a constant stream of very bad English. The only thing she said that I could understand was, “Oh […]

Review: The Bringer by Samantha Towle

Review: The Bringer by Samantha Towle

Those of you that have read any of my reviews probably can tell that I have very eclectic tastes in reading. I love the different because same thing different day, just doesn’t work for me. There’s some genres that are just not my thing-fairy tales, Harry Potter and some kinds of fantasy just doesn’t do […]

Review: Finder by Connie Suttle

Review: Finder by Connie Suttle

This book was recommended to me by a blogger friend and since we usually like the same sort of books, I read it. Very quickly! And very happily, as it turned out. Finder is an orphan that was left at the King’s palace kitchen when she was two years old. She spends her time non-stop […]

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

A few years ago, YA Fantasy was suddenly swamped with brand new series from brand new authors. REALLY good brand new series from brand new authors. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo was the second of that batch that I read, and I hadn’t really wanted to. The cover was weirdly creepy and looked to be […]

Review: Blood and Loss by Electa Graham

Review: Blood and Loss by Electa Graham

Ever read a book that you know should have had some things written in a bit different way, BUT you keep reading, and you also want to read the next one? That’s exactly what happened with this book for me. Cassandra is attending a witch college and is getting ready to graduate along with her […]

Review: Slumber by Samantha Young

Review: Slumber by Samantha Young

Slumber by Samantha Young has one of the best first lines I’ve ever read: “When I was a child the world smelled of summer.” It’s nostalgic. It’s foreboding. If the world still smelled of summer, of bright things, of happy things, there would be no need to remember what life was like when you were […]
