Review – Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

After Maas proceeded to break my heart into a million pieces in Heir of Fire, I prayed for a “happier”story this time around. Which, in comparison to how the last book ended, I’d say this one was an a slightly more positive note. Time has sprung forward a bit and Aelin is back in Rifthold and ready to stir up more trouble. […]

Review – A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When I began reading A Court of Thorns and Roses, I wasn’t a fan. I’m obsessed with the Throne of Glass series and expected something of that caliber diving into this book, but that wasn’t the case. Instead, I fell in love with a beast and shipped him and his beauty something fierce. This book takes the Beauty and the […]

Review – First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

While relaxing at home over spring break, I played blind pick with the novels on my TBR shelf. My finger landed on First Grave on the Right, so I flipped through the comments. Overall, pretty good. My mom read the whole series so far and loves them, and we typically like the same books. Okay, it all sounds promising. So […]

Review – Up from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

I’m disappointed. I love this series. Like, top ten must-read series love. And Up from the Grave is the last book. I wanted that 5-star mind-blowing end to the adventures of Cat and Bones. Instead, I had a satisfying but lackluster finale. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed book 7 but it had its issues. Issue numero uno: the plot. WTF Frost? Talk […]

Review – One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost

We’re six books into this series. Six. By this point, the series has either continued on with as much captivating detail as those initial few books…or it’s started to descend into the realm of disappointment. Sadly, I found One Grave at a Time tipping toward the latter. While Frost has yet to deliver a book I didn’t enjoy, this book just didn’t […]

Review – Gerard’s Beauty by Marie Hall

I love the tale of Beauty and the Beast. Whether it’s the Disney version, or Robin McKinley’s Beauty, I’m a sucker for a reformed Beast. Yet this retelling took me completely by surprise, because this isn’t the story of the Beast finding true love, it’s about Gerard. You could paint him as Disney’s Gaston, the villainous man lusting after Belle. […]

Review – Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall

Alice, Alice, oh are you the real Alice? Because he’s been waiting for the true Alice, not the woman who ripped his heart to shreds and left the pieces behind. So is this Alice the right Alice? Fairy Godmother Danika seems to think so, and if it helps her save her boys, the Bad Five–the so-called villains of Kingdom–then all […]

Review – This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Before I say more about this book, I just want to mention that if you haven’t read the two spin-off books within the Night Huntress books, First Drop of Crimson and Eternal Kiss of Darkness, then you will be missing a decent chunk of time between books 4 and 5 of the Cat and Bones storyline. Granted, you don’t have […]
