Review – Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

I almost DNFed Runebinder. I wanted to love it because it’s diverse. It’s YA. It’s fantasy. I mean, you can’t lose, right? Heh. About that. . . So this book’s major problem right off the bat for me was the fact that I had no idea what was going on. For starters, I thought this was a fantasy (as in, a […]

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 – The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana

I should have paid closer attention to the comparison titles for this novel. I wasn’t big on The Star-Touched Queen (though loved the sequel, A Crown of Wishes) and unfortunately The Library of Fates fell in the same category of the former. This book reads like an extended story you would see in a book of folklore and that’s not necessarily a bad thing but it left […]

Review – The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Bring on the gladiators! I was really excited for The Valiant because I LOVE the TV show Spartacus and seeing the roles reversed by female warriors is like the dream. But while this book as received a lot of praise and had some great elements, ultimately it just wasn’t working for me and threatened a DNF several times over. The beginning of […]

Review – Heartless by Marissa Meyer

There’s so much about Heartless that I wanted to love. For starters, Marissa Meyer is one of my favorite authors with her Lunar Chronicles series so this standalone was at the top of my 20167 anticipated titles list. I also have an obsession with Wonderland and villains — who better to have an origin story than the Queen of Hearts herself? […]

Review – Nemesis by Anna Banks

It’s Egypt with a magical spin in Nemesis by Anna Banks, the first in a new series by the author of the Syrena trilogy. At the mention of an Egyptian-esque world, I jumped on this book and couldn’t hold back the excitement. Clearly it had to be amazing, and I can’t think of many books in the genre with this setting […]
