Review – A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

How does someone review the most emotional, roller coaster ride of a series conclusion they’ve ever read? In truth? I’m not really sure but I have a lot of feels that I’m struggling to put into words. I adored A Darker Shade of Magic when I first visited the four Londons of V.E. Schwab’s world. It quickly made my list of must-read […]

Review – This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

I don’t think I’ve been fair to this novel. If you’ve ever talked to me about fantasy books, chances are I’ve mentioned Schwab’s other books, A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows from the Shades of Magic series. I absolutely adore them and when reading This Savage Song, it was hard not to compare the books because […]

Ten Books Set Outside of the United States

I really had to think about this one. Considering how much fantasy I read, this should’ve been pretty easy since a lot of those books aren’t even set on this earth (that counts, right?) but I tried to pick titles that are alternate worlds to our own set around the world. Some of these are a stretch, with only part […]

Review – A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

CAUTION: This book is not for the faint of heart. Prepare yourself for soul-crushing, emotional trauma that can only be relieved by the words of a book yet to be released. For your safety, do not attempt other activities during or post-reading. Despite all its failings so far, 2016 is kicking ass in the book world. So many great titles […]

Top Ten Books Released In 2016 That I Want To Read

This week’s prompt is favorite 2016 releases. If I’m being quite honest, I really haven’t read enough releases from this year to even make a top ten list for this week, and I missed last week from illness so I didn’t want to skip 2 in a row. So instead, here are 10 books that have been released so far […]

Top Ten Books to Read at the Beach

If I’m being perfectly honest, I don’t like beaches. Nor have I been to one in years and maybe twice total in my life. But I imagine beaches are a place to lay back and relax for most people, where you want to ignore everything (and everyone) around you with a good book. So here are my top 10 “beach” […]

Review – A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A man who walks through walls. A cross-dressing thief hidden in shadows. A London by any other name color. Schwab’s first book in the Shades of Magic series is one of the most captivating fantasies I’ve read to date. The worlds Kell visits intrigue and inspire a whole new kind of magic. Kell is an Antari, one of two throughout […]
