Review – An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

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 adding An Enchantment of Ravens to that […]

Review – Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

When I read Lady Midnight, I wasn’t exactly enthralled by it, but I wanted to know what happened next. So of course, when I picked up Lord of Shadows, my expectations weren’t very high…boy did this book surprise me! Lord of Shadows absolutely blew Lady Midnight out of the water! It was a veery large book, so there were points when I felt like it […]

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). With a unique take on magic and fantasy kingdoms combined with characters you’ll love to, well love (and also hate), this book was such a fun read and I flew through it in record time. Y’all, I need the […]

Cover ❤️ Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Cover ❤️ Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I honestly love this cover. I didn’t particularly love the covers of the other series, but this one just seem so  much more mature. I love the image of the woman floating. All of the other ones had the characters either looking completely away or straight at the reader. This one just shows a different level of seriousness in my opinion. I guess what I’m […]

Review – The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine

Review – The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine

When it came to The Impostor Queen, I can’t quite place it but it just didn’t… wow me. This novel falls in the realm of fantasy with ice and fire magic holding domain over the world. A prophecy foretelling the most powerful queen. I mean there’s plenty here that could’ve done well, that could’ve been spectacular. But at the end I felt this book was nothing […]

Mini Review – Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I honestly don’t know where to start with this…It’s been a little while since I finished the book so some details are hazy. I will try to keep out spoilers, but be cautious while reading I really enjoyed this first installment of The Dark Artifices. It was usual Cassie Clare, but with a little more mystery to things. I mean The Mortal Instruments was definitely […]

Review – Daughters of Ruin by K.D. Castner

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. Looked good, sounded good, so […]

Review – The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

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 and humans in this world, […]
