Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Book Reviews | September 16, 2015

Uprooted is one of those books that had a pretty quiet release, but then a massive tidal wave of hype in the book blogging community. People who know me probably know that hype and I aren’t exactly friends. And I feel like the book would have benefited if I waited a year or so to read this, so […]

ARC Book Review: The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

ARC Book Review: The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Book Reviews | July 4, 2015

Trust me, no one is more surprised than I, but I actually really liked The Heart of Betrayal. After reading the first book in the series, The Kiss of Deception, I was dreading even reading this at all despite having a review copy. But wow. Now this is a series I can get behind. My primary complaint about […]

Book Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Book Reviews | June 24, 2015

Ugh. *moan* *sigh* Oh boy. The Kiss of Deception came out last year to a generally positive reception – in fact, plenty of my closest blogging friends clamored about it as being one of the best new YA fantasy series out there. I am baffled, because I do not understand at all. This book was boring as hell. […]

After reading it, I’m not sure I’d go so far as to say all that, but The Novice is entertaining for sure, and a series […]

ARC Book Review: Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

Book Reviews | April 30, 2015

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge was an absolutely stellar 2014 debut that soared to the top of my favorites list and never let go. So obviously when I heard about Crimson Bound, my interest was instantly piqued and I became desperate for it. Crimson Bound is a creative and original fantasy, though in my opinion not as great […]

An Ember in the Ashes is easily one of the most hyped up 2015 debuts / releases overall. Ever since it was announced, people have been clamoring for the book – excited by this “Gladiator style” high stakes middle eastern-inspired fantasy. So, obviously, this book had a lot to live up to. Fellow bloggers who read this before […]

Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Book Reviews | March 12, 2015

I finally did it! I’ve had Ruin and Rising on my bookshelf for ages – since its publication day, actually – but I kept putting off reading it for some reason. I think I was scared that I would be let down. But no. Though there are some things that I would maybe have liked differently, Ruin and […]
