Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Reviews | April 7, 2016

When Ink and Bone first came out, it got some rave reviews that made me place it on my wishlist and file away under “definitely should check out at some point”. That point arrived in the form of a book club nomination. I went into the book not knowing much about it aside from (a) the good reviews, […]

Oh man, oh man, oh man. File under: most exciting giveaway winnings ever, because I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel that I got to read this masterpiece early.

Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book Reviews | January 29, 2016

As big a fan as I am of Victoria Schwab, it’s taken me ages to get around to reading A Darker Shade of Magic for the simple fact that the hype surrounding this book was freaking insane. And yeah, I don’t cope that well with hype. But I should know by now that when V Schwab’s books get […]

ARC Book Review: Tangled Webs by Lee Bross

Book Reviews | June 15, 2015

The premise of Tangled Webs instantly caught my attention, as it contains so many things I usually love: London, blackmail, masquerade balls, slight genderbending. For all intents and purposes, I should have fallen hard and fast for this book. But no. And wow, it sure takes skill to make a story about blackmail so boring. Let’s start there, […]

ARC Book Review: Illusionarium by Heather Dixon

Book Reviews | May 18, 2015

Having heard amazing things about Dixon’s debut, Entwined, that I have had on my shelf for years but shamefully not read yet, when the option to review Illusionarium came up, I jumped on that instantly. I’m generally a sucker for all things labeled steampunk anyway. But. Well, I think I may have learned my lesson not to jump […]

ARC Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Book Reviews | March 23, 2015

As a huge fan of Kerstin Gier’s Precious Stone Trilogy, when I heard that Macmillan would be releasing the Silver trilogy as well, my heart LEAPED in delight. Dream a Little Dream was a super fun adventure that I just tore through. What appealed to me most about this book is the cool, creative concept of lucid shared […]

ARC Book Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Book Reviews | November 10, 2014

A Thousand Pieces of You quickly rose to the top of my most wanted list because I am the shallowest human being ever and THAT FREAKING COVER. I’m happy to say that I actually really enjoyed it too. I was scared that it would be disappointing, but it was really entertaining, and I believe the series has potential, […]
