Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Island of Exiles by is an addictive, high-stakes read. I found myself engrossed from page one. What makes it so addictive was the unique world-building and setting Cameron developed through the eyes of her main character Khya. It is unlike anything I’ve ever read! Khya is a warrior, put simply. She, like everyone else, puts […]

Review: To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

Review: To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

Oh my! I lost myself in ‘s latest book To Best the Boys. It’s been a long time since I could say that! I loved the setting and characters, the main storyline and how relatable it is to today’s world. To Best the Boys is about a young woman who wants more education and joins […]

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber

Better than the first!!! How often can you say that about a sequel?! Usually sequels suffer from second book syndrome, acting as a bridge in a trilogy, a filler really with no necessary information meaning the book winds up quite dull. Legendary however doesn’t suffer second book syndrome. Far from it! Legendary surpassed all my […]

Review: Second Star by J.M. Sullivan

Review: Second Star by J.M. Sullivan

When I first came across Second Star by on another blog, I noticed two things: the sci-fi cover and PETER PAN. Y’all this is not a drill! Second Star is a sci-fi/space opera-ish retelling of the famous boy who never grew up. It took me a few days to read all the way through the […]

Review: Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

I read Ash Princess last summer and yes I know it has taken me a long time to write a review for a book I read in less than two days. But hey….2018 was long and stressful 😉 I digress….Ash Princess by debut author was everything I love about YA fantasy. It whisked me away to a different […]

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

I loved the Divergent series by but that ending….ugh!!! It’s been nearly six years and I still can’t even with that ending. SO naturally I was cautious about reading Carve the Mark. However I was pleasantly surprised. Despite a slow start, Carve the Mark was exactly what I wanted out of a YA dystopian scifi. Alternating points of view between two […]

Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

‘s Heartless wasn’t at all what I expected, but it was just as good as I’d hoped. I loved The Lunar Chronicles, so when I first heard that Meyer was writing a book about the Queen of Hearts I was excited. Excited and intrigued. Intrigued because I’ve read other books about the Queen of Hearts and didn’t […]
