Book Review: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

I’ve been a fan of the Throne of Glass series for a long time, but I had always skipped the novellas… till now. I’m just not always a novella person – I’m naturally skeptical about how much they add if they were cut from the actual books for a reason. Well. This is probably the best collection of novellas I’ve ever read, and I think they definitely add to the series in a positive way. The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: 4.5/5 This was a fantastic way to dive back into the Throne of Glass universe. It instantly reminded me of everything I love about […]

ARC Book Review: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

ARC Book Review: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

I was already a fan of Emma Mills’s first book, First & Then. It was cute and happy and romantic, and so I thought, this is an author I should keep an eye on. I did NOT think that she would level up so supremely for her sophomore title. This Adventure Ends is heartfelt, lovely, and so, so meaningful. Sloan is a soul friend. I mean this in the sense of the side characters that she befriends, but also because she’s such an understandable and relatable character. Her voice is awesome, and her personality is one that just instantly draws you (and other people) to […]

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Since reading Since You’ve Been Gone, Morgan Matson has pretty much gotten on my auto-buy author list. Especially when her covers turn out to be LITERALLY CUTE AS PUPPIES – LIKE, WITH ACTUAL PUPPIES. I mean, I couldn’t picture a book more fluffy and all about summer fun times – and that’s exactly what this book was. It was DELIGHTFUL. The Unexpected Everything is about Andie, the daughter of a Congressman, who has always been about intense future plans living up to the stringent ideals that her dad’s job kind of foists upon her. So her plan for the summer was to do a pre-med […]

Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Ever since I first read Cinder, almost three years ago, I knew that this series would likely be one of my all-time favorites. Now here we are. The end of the road. And I was not wrong. At a whopping 824 pages, your first thought upon opening Winter may rightfully be, “Holy crap this book is massive.” That size is daunting to most readers – especially to me. But it’s a testament to Meyer’s skill as a writer that the story never truly drags and no moment ever feels unnecessary. Every book introduces two additional main characters – so by Winter, with Winter and Jacin […]

Book Review: Every Move by Ellie Marney

Book Review: Every Move by Ellie Marney

On an absolute feels high, it was inevitable that I had to read Every Move immediately after Every Word, finishing my binge of what is now one of my all-time favorite series. Intense action, thrills, and romance make for an addictive and engrossing read. Holy intensity, Batman. Every Move pulls no punches. The stakes are high – like insanely high. After Every Word, I think it was generally understood that Wild is not a friendly guy… But in Every Move, he gets possibly even scarier. Murders start littering the streets of Melbourne, bodies resembling those of Rachel and Mycroft, sending a clear message that they […]

Book Review: Every Breath by Ellie Marney

Book Review: Every Breath by Ellie Marney

Ever since its release last year in the US, Every Breath has been spreading around the YA book blogging circuit as one of the most hyped titles ever. But, I mean, with a premise of a modern YA Sherlock with a female Watson and the promise of great shippy times, who can blame them? I certainly couldn’t resist. And I’m so glad I didn’t. This boooooook. You guys. Like, seriously. Read it. So, elephant in the room: basically everyone who has read this book has been going crazy about the romance. I kinda hate hype like that, but I would be lying (SO HARD) if […]

Book Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Book Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Ever since the too-adorbs-for-words cover of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was released, I was pretty much convinced I had to read this. It just looks so cute and lovely – and Jenny Han is an author that I’ve been meaning to check out for a while. Well, I finally got enough room in my schedule to read it and… LOVE. Loved, loved, loved this book. It is top notch banterfluff, make no mistake. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before tells the story of Lara Jean, a Korean-American junior in high school, whose love letters to her old crushes accidentally get mailed […]

ARC Book Review: The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas

ARC Book Review: The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas

Ever since I first cracked open The Burning Sky, I’ve been completely infatuated with The Elemental Trilogy. Sherry Thomas created such awesome characters and such an amazing ship, that I got swept up in their adventures instantly and any complaints I had were largely ignored. So, my expectations might have been a bit high for The Immortal Heights, but nonetheless, Thomas met them and delivered an awesome ending consistent with the quality of the rest of the series. I did actually reread The Burning Sky and The Perilous Sea before diving into the conclusion, because I wanted to be sure that all of the previous […]
