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.
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.
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.
Massive thanks to Harper Voyager UK for providing me with an advanced reading copy! ♥ Things I Loved An adult fantasy book I loved the fact that Nevernight was an adult book. Sure, the main character is a “young adult”, but I wouldn’t class the […]
I was a tad nervous about Reawakened. I read Colleen Houck’s Tiger’s Curse series and it swiftly went downhill for me. THE HORRID LOVE TRIANGLE!! AHHH! But I’m very pleased to say that Reawakened was fantastic!! I only hope that the rest of the series […]

I’m bummed that Tiger’s Promise was only a novella; I could have read a whole book about Yesubai! I adored Yesubai’s story. It was inspiring, but tragic. There was a constant feeling of dread as I was reading the book (like “I think something bad […]
SIGH. That’s how I feel about Cruel Beauty. For starters, I think that Cruel Beauty was just nothing like I expected. Almost right away it becomes clear that there’s a huge connection to Greek mythology, and while I normally love Greek mythology, I just didn’t […]
I am hugely disappointed by The Chaos of Stars, mainly because I’m a HUGE fan of Egyptian mythology. But the book really fell flat for me. Let me break it down for you: Isadora, human daughter of Egyptian gods, hates her family because she feels […]
This is my first step towards overcoming Second Book Avoidance Syndrom! Woohoo! I am PSYCHED! Of Triton was the perfect book to save me from a reading slump. It wasn’t quite as romantic and swoony as Of Poseidon, but it had a bigger focus on […]
