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 Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant

Review – The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant

Well I do believe I have developed a taste for cowboy romances. Oh my, oh my, oh my. . . To be fair, this isn’t the first book I’ve read by Donna Grant. In fact, I’m quite a fan of her paranormal series, the Dark Kings. But I also wasn’t a huge fan of her Sons of Texas books so there’s that too. So I […]

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 […]

Review – Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne

Review – Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne

I had doubts about Rosemarked. I hadn’t heard much going into it and I ended up spending several days trying to push through the first 100 pages or so. A rough beginning led me to finishing the book with a craving for the sequel! The book bounces back and forth between the perspectives of Zivah, a healer who contracts an deadly disease, and Dineas, a soldier […]

On #Caraval and Collections (A Reader’s Obsession)

Hello friends. Today I wanted to talk about book collecting and Caraval and The Night Circus and all manner of bookish fangirling. If you follow me on any of my social media pages, there’s a pretty good chance you know that I have quite the obsession with those two circus/carnival novels. As in, combined, I have nearly 30 copies of both books. It’s a tad out of hand […]
