February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

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 […]

Audio Review: Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

Audio Review: Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

Once Upon a Dream by is the second book in Disney’s series. Each book in the series takes a beloved fairy tale and asks one “what if” question. This one is about Sleeping Beauty and asks the question “what if sleeping beauty didn’t wake up?” Personally I love these. They are cleverly written and take a realistic approach […]

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Unlike anything I’ve read before, The Killing Jar by is an interesting, suspenseful read. I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since before it came out and I happened across an audio copy of it. I highly recommend listening to the book as I couldn’t read it fast enough for my liking. The first line […]

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

I struggled to finish The Last One by . I wanted to like it. I really did. The premise sounded so promising. Reality TV mixed with true life apocalypse? What’s real vs what’s done for TV? I was all in. But the book is nothing like I thought it would be. First off the blurb is a […]

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

I have no words for Empire of Storms by . No, that’s not true. I have a lot of words for this book, but none are very flattering. I love the series! It is one of my favorite high fantasies. So I was excited that I finally got the chance to read the next installment. […]

Review: The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey

Review: The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey

The Shadow Hour by is the second book in the phenomenal urban fantasy series . I loved The Girl at Midnight! I loved the fantasy, I loved the world-building, and I loved Echo. The story is addictive and Echo is a heroine that is easy to fall in love with so I was anxious to start reading […]

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for historical fiction so I’m ashamed to admit that this book has set on my TBR shelf for more than a year. And I Darken by is the first in an alternate history series that imagines Vlad the Impaler as a woman. Honestly just typing that makes me giddy. […]
