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 […]

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Reviews | February 27, 2015

It’s probably worth noting that I very rarely read novellas or prequels unless I am heavily invested in the series. Now, Fairest was at the top of my wishlist anyway because The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all time favorite series. This prequel novella gives me a new appreciation for Meyer’s craftsmanship in terms of her story […]

ARC Book Review: A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

Book Reviews | February 18, 2015

Here’s a thing I almost forgot: how much I love Sleeping Beauty. In fact, as I read A Wicked Thing, which fits with the tone and story of the Disney movie, I realized it was probably my favorite Disney movie when I was little. My favorite Disney princess for sure. A Wicked Thing is an absolutely stunning debut […]

ARC Book Review: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

Book Reviews | October 2, 2014

I’ll admit that I started Stitching Snow with some trepidation – most of my friends that had read it had given it 3 stars max. But lo and behold, in a strange twist of fate, I’m a positive black sheep, because I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK. It was creative, fun, sci-fi-tastic, and a well-executed stand alone debut novel. […]

ARC Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Book Reviews | January 20, 2014

Cruel Beauty absolutely blew me away. So much so that roughly a week later, I’m still too speechless to write a review. I don’t know how to talk about this book without gushing. How to express in words just how much I loved it. But here we go. I will make a valiant effort. That promo comparison “Graceling […]

ARC Book Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Book Reviews | December 19, 2013

Before Cress, I was already listing The Lunar Chronicles as one of my favorite series at the moment. But Cress freaking cemented it as one of my all-time favorite series. This book. THIS BOOK. With its 560 pages. It was amazing and addictive, and by far the best of the series so far. Cress has to be pretty […]

Book Review: A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

Book Reviews | December 4, 2013

A Long, Long Sleep, I don’t know how to feel about you. I feel like we maybe got off on the wrong foot, because I was expecting to be blown away by your awesomeness. With the promise of a sci-fi fairytale retelling, my mind screamed, “CINDER! MORE OF THAT OMG YES PLEASE!” But you’re not like that at […]
