I went into the book with almost no expectations because none of my friends had read it or said a thing about it one way or the other.

Blood Countess

This book was on my list the moment I saw what it was about. I used to love learning about Elizabeth Báthory.

All The Stars and Teeth

Posted on

I have to write this review now, even though I don’t have all my thoughts in place, mostly because my head is STILL spinning. I can’t believe it! This review may ramble a bit, so feel free to skim if you start to zone out. Let me start by saying I REGRET not getting the OwlCrate version of this. I wish I had, but at the time I was also getting Fairyloot, and I made a choice. Anyways, besides that, the cover is gorgeous no matter what color it is, and so is the interior. That’s because this book was one of the most amazing reads. (Partially because I love mermaids and magic!)

Of Curses and Kisses

Posted on

I got really tired of retellings, especially fantasy ones several months ago, and so I hesitated to read this one at the time. I am SO GLAD that I waited. Because I feel that I really wouldn’t have enjoyed this book if I had read it when I first wanted to. (Okay, February, but still.) I enjoyed this book, and I felt that it was a read I had fun with, and one that I liked. This is a 3.5 stars for me.

A Curse of Gold

Posted on

So, I enjoyed the first book. I love seeing different takes on mythology, and this one was definitely interesting! I hadn’t seen it done that way before, and I was intrigued. Of course, I picked up the sequel (this one) before I’d read the first, so I had to read that first. This is the sequel to A Touch of Gold and I think it is a good sequel.

The Scapegracers

Posted on

This had witches and it had lesbians. It also had good female friendships. These are all things that I love in books. There was a ton of queer rep, even if just briefly mentioned, in this book. Unfortunately, it didn’t all come together for me in a way that made me love the book.
