Review – Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Review – Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

When I first asked for graphic novel recommendations, a ton of people recommended Saga so I figured that if that many people love it, I HAVE to read it. So I requested as many volumes as I could from my university library and binged the first volume. Let’s start with the more obvious artwork. I loved the full-color style that brought this very strange world to life. And I […]

Mini Review – A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase

Mini Review – A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase

The first thought that comes to mind after finishing this book is. . . well, frankly it was a bit weird. You know how sometimes series will read as standalones but certain characters appear throughout the series (well, this happens in romance a lot, at least)? That’s kind of how this book felt. Despite being the first in the series, this felt like a continuation […]

Review – The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

I had to take a few days after finishing The City of Brass before I could write this review, otherwise you would’ve been reading “IT’S SO GOOD BUY THIS BOOK” over and over again. Which, I mean, if that works for you, awesome! I haven’t rated a book this high this year with the exception of A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab and that particular title had a […]

Review – Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Review – Renegades by Marissa Meyer

It was hard not to rate this book as high as possible. I’m a huge fan of the author’s other work and she’s easily a favorite YA author but I wanted something. . . more from this book. I’ll be honest, Renegades is the first book I’ve taken on involving any form of superhero versus villain so I don’t have much to compare to on that front […]

Review – The Bride Who Got Lucky by Janna MacGregor

Review – The Bride Who Got Lucky by Janna MacGregor

A bit of time has passed since the events of The Bad Luck Bride but a few familiar faces return as the story focuses in on Emma Cavensham. All she wants is independence in a world that doesn’t really offer that option to women. And Nick St. Mauer just wants to never feel something because it only leads to pain. What worked with these two is their early […]

Review – The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake

Review – The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake

I’m starting to sense a theme with these Cinderella Sisterhood novels. The Scandalous Flirt is not the first I’ve read in the series (that would be the fourth book, Bella and the Beast) and in both I found that while the books as a whole are enjoyable reads, there were issues with the romances. Specifically the leading gentlemen. This time around, I’m not actually sure which fairy […]
