Review Simon is depressed. His and Baz’s relationship isn’t great. Penny decides they need a change of scenery, hence a road trip. That road trip causes multiple problems, and when they run into a Normal who seems to know more about magic than what is good for him, things go topsy turvy. Everything is a story, and Simon Snow’s is over. I absolutely, definitely cannot do this book justice. Carry On got me through a tough time. And I am ridiculously in love with that book. I worried that I wouldn’t love the sequel as much. But honest to god, […]

The Night Country
Review Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, I received an eArc of this book in exchange for a honest review. The Hazel Wood was an amazing book. It was laden in atmosphere and surprise. I am happy to say The Night Country is the same way, but a bit different. Instead of taking place mostly in The Hinterlands it took place in our world.  It was an engaging story once more and totally worth the wait.  This book was essentially told in two POVS. Mostly from Alice’s but some from Finch’s as well. Finch of course is not in our world. He is having […]

Review Celine is new to New Orleans. She is running from her past in Paris, but in New Orleans she isn’t safe either. As she makes new acquaintances, dead girls begin popping up all over the city. Celine decides to do something about it, but what she uncovers, well, is shocking to say the least. A story in which vampires are done well, and are not, actually, good people. So I grew up loving Anne Rice books. Interview and Lestat were two of my favorites. But later I also read and loved Twilight (which I have a different opinion on […]

The Guinevere Deception
Review Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, I received an eArc of this book in exchange for a honest review. I love Kiersten White’s Conqueror Series, it was brilliantly written, and so I was so excited to be able to read The Guinevere Deception, because I have always loved King Arthur legends. And on top of that, White’s last retelling was fabulous! So I was extremely excited for this one. What made it even more exciting is that White turned the tale on its head and changed some parts – and I will go over that briefly in this review. […]

Review Penny lives in Sparrow, Oregon. Every year three witch sisters come back from the dead and drown boys – in revenge for their own murders. This year an outsider comes, and Penny knows Bo is in danger. But Penny will have to make a hard choice, him or her? They were coquettes, temptresses, and men found them impossible to resist. I pleased to say: I enjoyed this book! I was a little worried that it was going to be slow paced, but often I enjoy slow paced books. There is slow paced and interesting and slow paced and boring: […]

Serpent & Dove
Review There’s something haunting about a body touched by magic. And with that opening line, this series draws you in. There have been a lot of people raving about this series, and I admit, the description of it certainly seemed appealing to me. Enemies to friends to lovers? That is usually a SIGN ME UP kind of book. And overall, I’m glad I read the book. I think there were a lot of good things about the book, but I didn’t overwhelmingly love the book as in a five star rating. And there are a couple reasons why. But they’re […]

unced as a crossover between Project Runway and Mulan I was a bit skeptical. Mostly because I had a bit of a hard time combining those two thoughts. But I love the story of Mulan, and the idea was super interesting so nevertheless I wanted to read this book. I sort of knew what I was expecting when I went in — but I ended up really liking it.
