March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

April 2, 2018 Reviews 1

Dorothy Must Die by is one of my all-time favorite retellings of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It isn’t quite a retelling, but more a continuation of Baum’s classic. Amy Gumm lives in a modern-day Kansas before a tornado sweeps her away to Oz. Her whole life Amy has read the story and wished for an escape like Dorothy’s. Now that she has it though, she realizes Oz isn’t what the books told her it was. The reason why is Dorothy. I really liked Amy. She is a girl who has had her fair share of troubles in life. Her father left her… Read more »

Review: Pestilence by Laura Thalassa

Review: Pestilence by Laura Thalassa

March 26, 2018 Reviews 1

Who knew pestilence could be so hot?! When I started reading Pestilence by , I’ll be honest that I was skeptical of whether I’d love this angelic-being who spent his time spreading disease to the four-corners of the world. However I have always had faith in as she has not once let me down. Andre, Pluto, Caden, Montes, Desmond, even Jame…each of these have won a place in my heart at one time or another, and now Pestilence joins their ranks. This story is dark, frightening, and at times heartbreaking. Told exclusively from Sara’s point of view, the story of Pestilence unfolds, and… Read more »

Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

March 8, 2018 Reviews 0

The Defiance never gets old! This is my third time reading ‘s zombie-esque dystopian and first time listening to the audiobook. I love Peree and Fenn, their world, and the fight for a better life. In this installment of the series, Fenn and Peree are back in their villages and must convince their people to return with them to Koolkuna and their protected waters. Fenn is a different person than who we met in the first book. She is more independent now and not afraid to speak her mind. I liked seeing this version of Fenn as she grieves the loss… Read more »

What an end to a pulse-pounding series! Annihilation by is the final book in the and I have to say I’m sad to see it end. I love this series so much! Picking up just a few weeks after the end of Ascension, Tara is training like she never has before. Learning to use her New Blood abilities Tara is ready to put an end to the Prezedant’s rule once and for all. I loved Tara in this book! She has come so far as a character since Awaken. In the first book, Tara was determined to find her family and return to the sand… Read more »

January 18, 2018 Reviews 0

I forgot how much I love The Scourge by ! I picked up the audiobook to listen to last week and I could not stop listening. I binged it in one day and it was perfection. I first read The Scourge back in 2014 around the time the second book of the series hit shelves. I devoured everything from the series then and waited for the third book. However I somehow missed the release and because it had been so long I wanted to reread. I’m SO glad I did. The premise of the book is simple. Set in the distant future, people living… Read more »

December 13, 2017 Reviews 2

Trick by is the fourth novel in the series, and as we have hit the halfway mark of on , it has the most reveals and surprises for fans of the series. Faith Peyton is a brand new character to and I love her! She’s a straightforward, what you see is what you get kind of girl. And it’s a breath of fresh air to have a character like that. An orphan with little memory of her childhood or her own origins, Faith works as a fisherman, but as her 25th birthday approaches she is forced to seek marriage or join… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! The book I’m sharing with you today came out late last month and somehow I missed the release day 🤦🏼‍♀️I had the opportunity to beta read this book over the Summer and I’ve been dying to share it with you since. If you are a fan of the series, you will be happy with the ending, even if you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the characters. If you haven’t started the series yet, enjoy scifi, alien dystopians, and a little romance, I highly recommend you grab a copy of Broken Skies and start a binge read ASAP!… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! Today’s book is one I read back this spring when I was having all that drama and never got a chance to share with you. I really enjoyed it too!
