Review: The Other, Better Me

First of all, I would like to say that I really appreciate HarperCollins sending me this book to read. This is a middle grade novel about a girl who decides that for her school project she is going to get in contact with her estranged father. Eventually, she learns to really appreciate the people in […]

ARC Review: The Last Witness | Missing Campers? Yes, Please

Oh my word. I freaking loved this book. This was a trip right up my alley. I don’t read a lot of thrillers but I definitely want to read more now. I am all for stories about campers that go missing because of something in the woods. Note: I do want to say that I […]

ARC Review: The Guinevere Deception | Comfy Fantasy

I desperately wanted to love this book. It was one of my most anticipated books of 2020. It started with quite an intriguing premise and while I enjoyed it, I’m sad to say I just didn’t love it. Note: I do want to say that I did originally receive this and start reading it as […]

ARC Review: Ruthless Gods | MY FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR

I have had a really difficult time reading this year, but this 500+ paged beauty has kicked that in the butt. It has been a while since I’ve read a book this large and I read it in a matter of days, which is fast for me especially considering how reading has gone for me […]

ARC Review: Blood Countess | Not for the Faint of Heart

TRIGGER WARNING: Physical/emotional/domestic abuse, torture, manipulation Honestly, I don’t think I actually knew what I was getting into when I requested this book. I mean, I thought I did but, boy, was I wrong. This book instantly pulled me in and as horrific as the following events grew to be, I couldn’t actually tear my […]

ARC Review: The Girl the Sea Gave Back | More Vikings? Yes, Please

After reading Sky in the Deep last year, I knew I needed The Girl the Sea Gave Back. I am pleased to say that this stunning cover does not disappoint in the least. This book follows the journeys of Tova and Halvard. Tova came to her clan, delivered by the waves of the sea in a basket. Mysteriously alive. […]

ARC Review: Sisters of Shadow and Light | Talk About Leveling Up

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Miss Larson’s first book, Defy, and I really enjoyed it. I still need to finish that trilogy, but I genuinely became a fan of Larson’s. It was so heartwarming and exciting to pick up her newest book and see how much her writing has grown. I absolutely […]

ARC Review: Romanov | It’s Not What You Expect

I was really excited about Romanov. It had a great start and the story moved along at a great clip, not too fast or too slow. The writing was good. I enjoyed the writing and I would read another one of Nadine Brandes’ books. However, I didn’t love this story like I had hoped I […]

Review: The Vine Witch | Tale of Wine or Something… Else?

What an opening. Honestly, this book had me hooked from the start, but I didn’t really get into it until I was about 100 pages in. This starts out as a seemingly innocuous tale of witches making wine, but grows into something much deadlier. That ending had me SPOOKED. There is no denying it. The […]

Mini Reviews: The Haunting of Hill House & Avatar the Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures

I finally read The Haunting of Hill House last Sunday and I was really disappointed. I felt like it could have been spookier than it actually was. Some of the dialogue was weird and at least one if not multiple characters were laughing during the spooky parts, which really ruined the atmosphere for me. Eleanor […]
