Review – Soundless by Richelle Mead

I was so saddened by this book. Not for its content, so to speak, but because Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors and yet I barely managed to push through Soundless. Where her other worlds stood out and swept me away, I felt distant and bored by this take on Chinese folklore. Between this and her other newer series, […]

Review – Trials of Artemis by Sue London

For a free Nook book through Barnes & Noble, my expectations for this book may have been a bit too high. The innocent young woman is compromised by a rake and forced into an unwanted marriage. Pretty standard. Moving on. Said young woman is a Habadasher, one of three women who banded together in their youth to have their version […]

Review – Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Illuminae is nothing like I’ve ever read before. A sci-fi spaceship adventure, this book is told through message logs. Emails (for lack of a better word). Thoughts from an Artificial Intelligence. Interview logs. Reports. Do NOT expect prose in the sense you’re likely used to but be assured you’ll be sucked in just as quickly with little hope of survival. […]

As time goes on, their lives become […]

Review – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

It’s… hard to talk about this book. Six of Crows is not my first experience with Bardugo’s writing (having read the Grisha trilogy) and while I found the style to be on par with what I expected — excellent — I’m not sure how I felt about the story overall. Now I know everyone has given this book raving reviews and at […]

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 […]
