Caraval Review: the magical circus book we deserve

If you've read my review of the Night Circus, you'd know that I found it lackluster considering all the hype it had. It's not that I thought Caraval wouldn't live up to its hype. There are just some books where I wait for the hype to die down so I can get ahold of the … Continue reading Caraval Review: the magical circus book we deserve

The Graveyard Book Review: who would have thought a graveyard could feel like home?

Reading this book has been quite the feat. Not because it was difficult at all, but because I kept getting distracted from it. I've read it a little, listened to the audiobook a little, and taken way too many breaks. But FINALLY I finished it and it was totally worth it. Bod is a very … Continue reading The Graveyard Book Review: who would have thought a graveyard could feel like home?

If I’m Being Honest Review: Taming of the Shrew “retelling”

I can't remember how I came across If I'm Being Honest, but I remember reading the summary of it and thinking "this is the kind of romance I am very interested in reading." Cameron was a little rough to enjoy at the beginning of the book, but that was part of her character development. This … Continue reading If I’m Being Honest Review: Taming of the Shrew “retelling”

Monsters of Men Review: one of the most memorable series I’ve ever read

This quickly became one of my favorite series ever. Todd and Viola are such believable, lovable, and flawed characters to follow.

Rule of Wolves Review: this better not be the end of the Grishaverse

When I started this book and anticipated its release, I had no idea that this would be a "so long...for now" book and I am sad. This is probably my favorite fantasy world and I am not ready to say goodbye, especially because I am still holding out for more Kaz Brekker at some point. … Continue reading Rule of Wolves Review: this better not be the end of the Grishaverse

Prepped Quick Review: doomsday prepping and a coming of age

I'm not a doomsday person and I don't really watch doomsday prepper stuff, but I do think about the zombie apocalypse or the general apocalypse every few days, so a doomsday prepper love story seemed like my kind of book. I was really intrigued with the concept and how it played out in the community, … Continue reading Prepped Quick Review: doomsday prepping and a coming of age

Blue Lily, Lily Blue Review: even farther down the Glendower rabbit hole and I’m here for it

These books just keep getting more and more interesting as the magical system shows that there are very few rules. Every time I think I know all the rules and all the players, BAM new people and new rules. I'm all for it though. There are spoilers in this post, so please read at your … Continue reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue Review: even farther down the Glendower rabbit hole and I’m here for it
