How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories Review

This book was better than I thought it would be. It was more fairy tale-like than I had expected, and I quite enjoyed that. It also gave a lot of insight into Cardan as a character. I know there has been some debate about whether or not Cardan is toxic or a bad example for … Continue reading How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories Review

The Ones We’re Meant to Find Review: beautiful and challenging

This book was great and I'm still wrapping my mind around it in the way that a good book leaves you engaged long after you finish it. Cee and Kasey are both compelling characters living in a world that feels inevitable but also impossible. Inevitable and impossible are actually great words to describe this story. … Continue reading The Ones We’re Meant to Find Review: beautiful and challenging

Firekeeper’s Daughter Review: murder mystery thriller

This has been a long-anticipated book for me. My librarian friends have been speaking very highly of it. At first it was a little hard for me to get into it. However, it instantaneously hooked me at one point and I was all in. Boulley does a great job creating the setting and making the … Continue reading Firekeeper’s Daughter Review: murder mystery thriller

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?

May 2021 Wrap Up: graduating college and indecisive reading

I graduated from college this month and I had a book hangover from Rule of Wolves so that all affected my reading this month. I've also been in the mood for a good YA romance but haven't been able to find one that caught my undivided attention. However, I DID manage to get some reading … Continue reading May 2021 Wrap Up: graduating college and indecisive reading

Storm of Locusts Review: monster-slaying excitement and great character growth

I was really excited to read the second book in the Sixth World series and I'm honestly pretty sad there isn't another book out for me to read. I guess I'll have to wait to read it when it finally comes out. There are spoilers for this book, so read at your own discretion. You … Continue reading Storm of Locusts Review: monster-slaying excitement and great character growth

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
