Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell: Book Review

Garden of Thorns: Book Review

Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’m hovering between 3.5-4 stars. The beginning (the first 30%) was SO GOOD. Seriously, I had no doubt I was going to rate this 5 stars. It was immediately gripping – I felt for the heroine so much...

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay - Book Review

Princess of Thorns: Book Review

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay My rating: 5 of 5 stars Oh my goodness I loved this. Absolutely loved it. I think several people who didn’t maybe came into it with false expectations. Its somehow marketed as a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. This isn’t the case at all. The...

The Falconer

The Falconer: Book Review

The Falconer by Elizabeth May My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was quite the pleasant surprise. Scotland? Steampunk? A dark heroine that slays? Why yes, thank you. Magic? Fae? Seelie/Unseelie Courts? Heck yes, I’ll take them all. We start off with a broken heroine– which is how I like...
