The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

The Diabolic: Book Review

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid My rating: 4 of 5 stars First of all, a huge thanks to Quarterly for sending me this book along with their book box – Literary YA (see more below!) I was actually quite surprised by this. I’m really not a huge dystopian/sci fi fan...

The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May

The Fallen Kingdom: Book Review

The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May My rating: 3 of 5 stars 2.5 stars? I’m still not sure how I feel about this. I think I liked it more in theory than the actual execution. The first book was honestly a ton of fun, and the ending will ensure you’ll...

Frostblood by Elly Blake Book Review

Frostblood: Book Review

Frostblood by Elly Blake My rating: 3 of 5 stars *Full Review Update* (Spoiler free) So this wasn’t a bad read. I think some will really enjoy it. I just wanted SO badly to be invested, and it just kept falling short for me. Yes, it has cliche’s and tropes...

Caraval Stephanie Garber

Caraval: Book Review

Caraval by Stephanie Garber My rating: 5 of 5 stars Find it on: Book Depository | Amazon I cannot rave enough guys… this book wins everything. This has made it in to my absolute all time favorites. I can’t even function normally to describe it… I am absolutely floored. Zero...

King of Mist by Jordan Rivet

King of Mist: Book Review

King of Mist by Jordan Rivet My rating: 4 of 5 stars Okay, I’m hooked. I didn’t expect the feels… wowza. So if you haven’t started this series, you’re missing out. The first book was good- a good introduction to the characters and world building.. but this is where the...

Freeks by Amanda Hocking

Freeks: Book Review

Freeks by Amanda Hocking My rating: 3 of 5 stars So this wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t exactly a hit for me. It felt very YA (which I get it… it’s written for YA) but it kinda felt like something that would have been on Nic at Night...

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game: Book Review

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne My rating: 5 of 5 stars 4.5 Stars – mostly because it had me so addicted and I couldn’t put it down. Though- at times I wanted to lower it to 4 just because of some silly dumb stuff but screw it.. I had...

The Alchemists of Loom

The Alchemists of Loom: Book Review

The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova My rating: 3 of 5 stars I actually struggled a bit with this one. But let me start off with this- I loved Elise Kova’s other series (Air Awakens) and I think she’s a fun author with a brilliant mind. I was really...

Duel of Fire by Jordan Rivet

Duel of Fire: Book Review

Duel of Fire by Jordan Rivet I really enjoyed this. It wasn’t anything spectacular- nothing super unique here, but it was fun all the same. If you’re looking for a light read with all your typical fantastical elements such as magic, princes, swords fighting, etc… check this one out. I’d...

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi My rating: 5 of 5 stars **Full review update (spoiler free!)** Holy crap. This was PHENOMENAL. Absolutely a new ALL TIME favorite. Can I give this one more than 5 stars please?...
