Review: Fairest | Deliciously Villainous

Fairest is a deliciously villainous tale perfectly explaining how Queen Levana became so terrible. Miss Meyer did a fantastic job fluctuating between making the reader pity Levana while never justifying her actions. I shook my head more than once, wishing Levana would just stop. However, she had the unfortunate privilege of growing up in a […]

Review: Stray | Straight and Narrow is the Way

I never knew what to expect from Stray. I was gripped by the horns from the very first sentence and relentlessly towed along. No, this isn’t a fast paced novel, but neither would I say it’s slow. It moves along at an even rate and doesn’t give anything away. There was really no indication as to how […]

Review: The Jewel | Becoming a Surrogate Just Got Scarier

I’m honestly not even sure why I liked this so much. If you had told me everything I know now about the book beforehand, then I’d honestly have to say that I probably wouldn’t have picked it up. At all. All that I’m left with is the fact that Amy Ewing wrote a gripping and […]

Review: The Blood of Olympus | A Single Word Will Spoil It

First of all, let me just say, it is incredibly hard to write this review for two reasons. One, the synopsis on Goodreads and the synopsis on the actual book jacket are different. Two, I’m having a hard time determining what’s a spoiler and what isn’t. Before I say anything more though I have one […]

Review: The Glass Casket | One of the Freakiest Novels I’ve Ever Read

This novel literally combines some of my favorite story elements and, to my heart’s delight, Templeman used them all exceedingly well. I love it when things are set in a small village and the creep factor is high. For some, the first 100 pages could be a bit slow but I found them rather intriguing. […]

Into the Chasm’s Depths: City of Heavenly Fire

Wow. Just wow. This book was flipping awesome. Cassandra Clare ended the series with a bang, one that I entirely love. She wrapped every single little thread up and tied it into a bow all while prepping us for her next series, The Dark Artifices. I’ve hated Simon for the entire series but… I admit […]

Review: Landry Park | Downton Meets the Selection? Okay.

I will again admit that the comparison “Downton Abbey meets The Selection” kind of won me over while being actually pretty accurate. I literally finished this the same day I started it. One of the reasons I hadn’t started Landry Park before was because I had other books I really had to read and I […]

Review: The Assassin’s Blade | Utterly Heartbreaking

These novellas in one word? Heartbreaking. Having already read Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight, I knew about one of the biggest spoilers and the pain was almost unbearable. Just thinking of this impending tragedy would bring me to tears. I’ve never read a book that has made me cry so much. I’ve been […]

Review: Cress | Left Speechless

Prepare yourself. Miss Meyer’s attention to detail is amazing. I loved how to wove so many aspects of the original fairy tale (Rapunzel) into the novel. I enjoyed every single plot line. Even Kai was more enjoyable this time around. Poor Wolf and Scarlet have been put through the ringer. Cinder and Iko were so […]

Review: The Chaos of Stars | A Lesson About Love

“And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.” I knew I’d like The Chaos of Stars before I ever read a single word. Even now, I wish I could find something else similar to it. Miss White did an […]
