Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Let’s talk about first impressions: they are IMPORTANT. If, for example, you start reading a new book, and the first glimpses you get of ALL THREE main characters are less than flattering, you might be tempted to toss said book aside in disgust and hope the next one goes better. Yes. You might. And in […]

Audiobook Review: Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews

Audiobook Review: Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews

Audrey and Kaldar were my least favourite couple to date in this series—that being said—FATE’S EDGE was still a solid 4-star read thanks to George and Jack. When I finished book 1 my first thought was I hope the Drayton boys will make another appearance, so I was pumped to see them pop-up again in […]

Review + Interview: The Winter King by C.L. Wilson

Review + Interview: The Winter King by C.L. Wilson

C.L. Wilson writes Fantasy Romance like nobody’s business. I discovered Wilson’s Tairen Soul series a little over a year ago through a Goodreads’ recommendation, and I read all five books in five days. All five books. In five days. And they weren’t filler books either. They were all 400(ish) page FANTASY books. When I finished my […]

Review: Chasers of the Wind by Alexey Pehov

Review: Chasers of the Wind by Alexey Pehov

So I don’t think I’ve read a translated book before. At least not a recently translated book. I’ve thought about it. I mean, the book was popular enough in it’s native language to get translated into English and re-published, so that speaks highly for it, right? Yeah, definitely . . . BUT. Language is a complex and beautiful […]

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 […]
