Caraval Stephanie Garber

Caraval: Book Review

Caraval by Stephanie Garber My rating: 5 of 5 stars (Spoiler free) 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 complaints. I enjoyed every sentence.....

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

Crown of Wishes: Book Review

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?...

Crystal Storm

Crystal Storm: Book Review

Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes My rating: 5 of 5 stars Good gracious. EoS and now this? Bloody hell. 2017 better bring us some happiness. Alright. There will be some spoilers up to book 4 in here and I’ll try to be vague about the rest. If it has been...

The Vanishing Throne

The Vanishing Throne: Book Review

The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May My rating: 4 of 5 stars THAT ENDING. Wowza. I’m torn between 3-4 stars because I have so many mixed feelings. Maybe 3.5? Okay, let’s see if I can function enough to write a semi coherent review. (Minor spoilers, big ones are marked.) Basically...

wintersong

Wintersong: Pre-Review

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow. I’m not sure whether to give this 4 or 5 stars or somewhere in between- as I’m still digesting this. Full review closer to the release date- but here are a few thoughts in the meantime… I was absolutely...
