Book Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Book Reviews | October 18, 2016

Can I just start off by saying, “OH MY GOD.” Because honestly, that’s how this series makes me feel time and time again. Empire of Storms is by no means perfect, but it is nonetheless further cementing the series’ status as one of my all-time favorites that will be reread to death and recommended till the end of […]

Book Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Book Reviews | October 11, 2016

Roughly one year after its release, I finally got around to Queen of Shadows. To say that the hype surrounding this series is intimidating at times would be a massive understatement. And though I remembered absolutely loving the previous books, my hatred for hype scared me off for a while. But I dove in, doing a full series […]

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

Book Reviews | October 6, 2016

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 […]

Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | September 15, 2016

Even I, by now, am wondering if Uncle Rick is just milking it. I mean, to start up yet another series in the same universe is pretty damning. But at the same time, I love Greek mythology and the possibility of getting glimpses of Percy too much to resist. The Hidden Oracle is fun but still a bit […]

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Book Reviews | July 28, 2016

I did it. I killed the beast – this 600+ page monster of a novel. It took me three weeks to get through it not only because Pokémon Go was released in the same time. And it pains me to say it, but I do feel like it was a waste of those three weeks. When I saw […]

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Book Reviews | July 23, 2016

The hype for Nimona started long before it was published as a book. Several of my friends were already raving about it as it was gradually being posted online. That plus Noelle’s STUNNING drawing style made this a graphic novel I definitely could not resist. And I can say with certainty that I feel it deserves the hype. […]

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Reviews | July 21, 2016

The Rose and the Dagger was one of my most anticipated books of 2016, being that it followed the flawless and engrossing The Wrath and the Dawn, one of my favorite books of 2015. Honestly, words will never really do it justice. This book – and this series – is wholly unique. So much so that I finished […]

Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Book Reviews | July 7, 2016

Sigh. This is one of those series that gets raved about all the time by everyone. It’s one of the bestselling YA series of all time. And in theory there’s nothing that “wrong” with it. But I do not get everyone’s fascination. Not one bit. I enjoyed the first book quite a bit, but right from the start, […]
