Review: Legacy of Light by M. Lynn & Michelle Bryan

Review: Legacy of Light by M. Lynn & Michelle Bryan

May 2, 2018 Reviews 0

Legacy of Light by picks up right where the first one left off. *Please note that if you have NOT read Prophecy of Darkness there are spoilers from that book in this review. Read at your own risk.* Trystan and Rissa are mourning the loss of Davi in their own ways, but they must go on. They have a mission: to return magic to Dreach-Sciene. But it isn’t simple and their journey has only just begun. Prophecy of Darkness ended with some major cliffhangers: Davi’s death and true identity, the execution of the king, and the questionable nature of the Tri-Gard. I honestly was nervous opening… Read more »

April 24, 2018 Features 4

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

April 5, 2018 Reviews 2

Perfect companion to ! Ilyan by is the conclusion fans of the series have been waiting for. Not only that it sets up the new spinoff series, making me even more excited than I already was. At the end of Crown of Cinders, readers are left wondering what happened during the years Ilyan was missing. Where was he? What happened to him? What was going on that Jocelyn couldn’t find him? This book answers those questions. Ilyan is not the same person I knew and loved from the original series. He is lost, almost like a young child, and frustrated that his memory is… Read more »

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 »

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

March 5, 2018 Reviews 0

Not what I was expecting, but sometimes that can be a good thing. Crooked Kingdom by broke me and put me back together again. It’s hard to really describe these characters without remembering (with a little horror) that they range in age from 17-20. They are still kids for all intents and purposes, and it hurt my heart every time that fact was thrown in my face. Picking up where Six of Crows left off, Kaz is on the warpath. He has concocted the schemes to end all schemes in order to get Inej back and teach Van Eck a lesson. In fact, Kaz… Read more »
