Review – An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

I NEED ANOTHER BOOK. It feels like it’s been ages since I read a faerie book, and a good one at that. Though I’m sure I’ve read some since then, the only ones that come to mind are Holly Black’s Tithe/Modern Faerie Tales series and Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series (both of which are some of my favorite books in general). I am absolutely […]

Review – Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta

Another grand slam in YA fantasy debuts, Shimmer and Burn is the third release of the year in this genre that I absolutely adored (see also Song of the Current and Caraval).

Review – Daughters of Ruin by K.D. Castner

Four queens, a pact holding them together (loosely), and blossoming hatred between them? Intriguing doesn’t begin to cover it. Sadly, the exciting story I anticipated wasn’t quite the same in practice as on the back of the book. Daughters of Ruin wasn’t one of the 2016 releases I’d heard about until I saw it was available to read on Riveted Lit for free.

Review – The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

I’m genuinely conflicted about this book. As seems to be the case for several of the books I’ve read recently, the books keep me hooked while reading but afterwards I’m just left with a feeling of… disconnection, for lack of better words. And that’s how I would describe reading The Scorpion Rules. Just as there is a disconnect between the AIs […]
