The Throne of the Five Winds was one of my top reads so far this year, so naturally I had high hopes for the sequel. Luckily I wasn’t disappointed! The Poison Prince continued everything I loved from the first book. This series nails court intrigue. […]
Should I give Dance of Thieves another chance?
First let me confess something: I liked but didn’t love The Remnant Chronicles. I ADORED the first book but then the series declined for me and I only gave the last book three stars. I think my main issue was it felt really religious. The […]
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
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.
Ash Princess is the start of an epic revenge series!
Ash Princess was AMAZING!! It met all my expectations and then some. This is going to turn into an epic revenge series and I can’t wait for more!
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.
Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
To Kill a Kingdom was everything it promised: sirens, kingdoms at war, enemies falling in love, and an interesting look at nature vs nurture.
Review: The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross
The Queen’s Rising is an interesting kingdom/rebellion story, which thankfully reads like a standalone!
Reign the Earth was everything I hoped it would be!
To be honest, I don’t want to review Reign the Earth. For me it was one of those books that was so perfect that I don’t even want to sit and be objective about it. I don’t want to go over details and pick it apart. I just want to bask in its amazingness and all the beautiful feelings I have about the book.
It really sucks when the final book in a series disappoints you
Cat wasn’t the badass I hoped for in Heart on Fire; she was riddled with repetitive insecurities that didn’t feel like they “fit” into the third and final book.
