I’m pretty upset I hadn’t heard about this book until October. It only came out in September, but I do enjoy Kemmerer’s books, so I’m sad I couldn’t get started reading it SOONER! I powered through this book in a good way. It was super interesting, especially since I saw so much of what happened … Continue reading Defy the Night Review: Robin Hood with a twist!

The Cost of Knowing Review
This book understood teenagers in a way that I felt other books have fallen short. Alex as a character and in his thoughts, felt like a real person in his strengths, flaws, and dialogue. He didn't feel contrived or like a tool for a story. He felt real in how he walked through the world … Continue reading The Cost of Knowing Review
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
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
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
The Raven King Review: What. An. Ending.
It's been awhile since I read this book. I got carried away reading the books really fast and then moving on to other books. You know how it is right? Well, without further ado, I will finally write my review of this book. There are spoilers in this review so read at your own discretion! … Continue reading The Raven King Review: What. An. Ending.
April Monthly Wrap Up: A Month of Bardugo
This month flew by and I feel as if I spent a lot of it trying to figure out what I wanted to read. It ended up being a reread month in preparation and celebration of "Shadow and Bones" releasing and my Rule of Wolves hold coming in. Prepped By Bethany Mangle This book had … Continue reading April Monthly Wrap Up: A Month of Bardugo
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
These Violent Delights Review: a stylized, dark, and reimagined story that holds true to many aspects of the original story
I am a huge fan of Romeo and Juliet. I am completely aware of all of its issues, but I still find it dramatic in a great way and it has some iconic lines. "Do you bite your thumb at me, sir?" Such a classic. Having said that, I am an even bigger fan of … Continue reading These Violent Delights Review: a stylized, dark, and reimagined story that holds true to many aspects of the original story
