Ashlords: A Review

Okay ya'll… This might just be my favorite book of all time. Seriously. And I'll try and write a coherent review without dissolving into fangirl squeals. Basic Plot The Scorpio Races meets Hunger Games, basically. Did I ever mention that both of those are on my lists of favorites? Eleven phoenix riders take part in…

A Torch Against the Night: A Review

Credit to designer Okay, ya'll. Sit back and get ready because this is going to be a long and very rantish review.  Let's start off with the positives first, though, okay? Helene. Yep, that's it.

Okay, so first: I am an awful Beta/review reader. I am sooo sorry, Jes,…

Strange the Dreamer: A Review

Credit to Laini Taylor. I merely found this on the internet. If you were to look at any Hot List for top YA novels right now, odds are Strange the Dreamer is one of them. I have seen its mass popularity for a while now--The Muse of Nightmares included. To be honest, the story didn't…

The Scorpio Races: A Review

I think I've found a new favorite. Never did I think I would say that a book about racing flesh-eating horses would earn five stars, but, as you can see, it has. Honestly, I have no words, just praise and fangirl squeals.  Maggie Stiefvater has a way with words. She turns them into poetry, into…

The Deceiver’s Heart: A Review

This... this is a good book. My head is still reeling from all of the plot twists and love that I have for these precious characters. Jennifer A. Nielsen has a way with words, a true gift. She uses emotion so well that I can't help but dread scenes, have my heart racing in others,…

Fawkes: A Review

After practically a month of reading this, I am done! Since I usually only take a day to read a book, this should tell you quite a bit about what I thought. Thomas Fawkes is the main character but I just could not connect with him. There was nothing about him that set him apart…
