Mini Review – Death and Night by Roshani Chokshi

I was a bit leery about this novella. On the one hand, The Star-Touched Queen just wasn’t working for me. On the other, I loved A Crown of Wishes. Unfortunately, Death and Night fell closer to the former as it told the tale of Amar and Maya before the events of TSTQ when it was only Death and Night. Much like the first in the series, the writing is very […]

Review – A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

This book changed my entire opinion on this author’s work. If y’all missed my review of The Star-Touched Queen, I’ll just say that it really just wasn’t the book for me. Despite the beautiful writing and descriptive storytelling, I found the story far too slow to keep my attention. It’s safe to say that A Crown of Wishes was the complete opposite, drawing on the best aspects […]

Review – The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I was really hesitant about writing this review because I know how loved this book is but not every book is for every reader and I struggled with The Star-Touched Queen. Pretty sure I can hear the gasps of surprise from here. Yes, I wasn’t fawning over this book from page 1 and it’s not for lack of trying. This book has been on my TBR […]

Blog Tour Review – Freeks by Amanda Hocking

When I first heard that Amanda Hocking was writing another book and that it would be about a supernatural circus…I was beyond excited. I had loved her Trylle series and I’m in the process of reading the spin off series to that. But going into this book with such high expectations is where I went wrong. Unfortunately I was sorely disappointed with Freeks. This book […]

Blog Tour Review – Freeks by Amanda Hocking

If I had to describe this book is one word, it would be disappointing. Not bad, not great, just… nothing like what I expected or hoped for. This isn’t my first time reading Hocking’s work. I enjoyed her Trylle books when I was younger (and maybe that was why, I’m not sure as it’s been a while) but all the circus/carnival-y goodness and captivating mystery I […]

Review – Switched by Amanda Hocking

Review – Switched by Amanda Hocking

I read the reviews for this book before purchasing it. I’d only seen a couple that ravedabout this book so I assumed it must be great. Then I came across those 2-3 star reviews. Now there’s me. My opinion is somewhere in the middle. Switched is an interesting take on trolls, which you don’t see very often in YA from what I’ve seen. It adds […]
