My two favourite 5-star fantasy books this year

My last two reads have been so great that I can’t help but share them with you. Fireborne The author wrote a little note that I feel really sums up the vibe and atmosphere of the book. I’d encourage you to read it! In short: […]

It sucks when a series ends in disappointment

It sucks when a series ends in disappointment

I just spent WEEKS re-reading the entire Seven Realms series, then re-reading the first three books of the Shattered Realms series—all so I could read Deathcaster with the other books super fresh in my mind. Imagine my disappointment when after all that, Deathcaster ended up being my least favourite book out of all eight.

Review: Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins

Review: Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins

I’m weird about time travel books. I thought I didn’t like them, but now I’m thinking I do. The time travel book I read before Stolen Time was Invictus, which I adored! Now I read Stolen Time and loved this too!

Review: Her Alpha Viking by Sheryl Nantus

Review: Her Alpha Viking by Sheryl Nantus

This fantasy book didn’t feel like a fantasy. I looked at that cover, read that synopsis, and had expectations. I envisioned an epic fantasy romance with Norse mythology. What I got… was pretty much a contemporary book.

Furyborn: Star Wars but with angels?!

Furyborn: Star Wars but with angels?!

Furyborn is a REALLY cool story with two different timelines that relate and intersect. The prologue shows you the outcome of Queen Rielle’s timeline, then chapter one takes you two years back to explain how events led up to that outcome. Then chapter two gives you Eliana’s point of view, which is a crazy 1,020 years later!

Review: The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green

Review: The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green

I didn’t love The Smoke Thieves. For me it was just okay. Most of the book wasn’t super thrilling. Sure, there were a few mysteries to keep you going, but the whole thing just wasn’t super exciting.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I loved Renegades! I’m thrilled because Heartless wasn’t my favourite. But Renegades??? Yes! Awesome!

My favourite book so far of 2018: Children of Blood and Bone

My favourite book so far of 2018: Children of Blood and Bone

Children of Blood and Bone deals with some really heavy, intense issues. There are huge topics like privilege, family vs “what’s right”, oppression, and more. It’s not a lighthearted book, and that’s what I loved about it.

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

I’m really disappointed that I didn’t love The City of Brass like I wanted to. It was such a cool setting and the main character was pretty great, but sadly I think information overload weighed me down and massively affected my enjoyment of the book.
