Chasing Starlight

Take the glamour of old Hollywood, the heady rush of first love, and the tension of chasing secrets. Oh, topped off with an unsolved murder. That's what you get when you open the pages of Chasing Starlight. Kate Hildebrand hasn't had an easy life. And we get a glimpse of that in the first sentence. [...]

Ironspark

Fairies, and shadelings, and water wives, OH MY!!! Ironspark by C.M. McGuire is the snarky urban fantasy I had no idea I needed. As far as openings go, this quote really sets up expectations remarkably well. We know magic exists. And we know that whatever we think we know about magical creatures is, well, sixty [...]

Faithless Hawk

Last year, The Merciless Crow flew into my hands thanks to Fairyloot and I was immediately obsessed. The Faithless Hawk has since been one of my most anticipated reads of 2020. And, oh, what a satisfying read it was! Before we continue, let it be known that this is a review for a sequel. So [...]

Ignite The Sun

It's time for another glorious book review and there's a particular irony with this one. As I hide from the desert sun and the searing heat waves that burn my vampire skin, I read about the opposite. Of another kingdom, far, far, away, where a young girl and a group of rebels fight the Dark [...]

Shielded

Do you like ancient evil stirring up dark magic? Sword-wielding girls with far too many secrets? Cinnamon roll boys who happen to be princes? Then do I have the book for you! Jennesara's kingdom is in trouble. There's a traitor in the castle and war presses in on all borders. And Jennesara can help. She [...]

Mayhem – Review

As if the title alone wasn't enough to lure me in, the first sentence in the description is The Lost Boys meets Wilder Girls and that's it. I was done! As a 90's teen, this book takes everything I used to look up to in the late 80's and lets me bask in its reminiscent [...]

Scorpion

If you've been with me for a while, you are probably familiar with a lovely dystopian novel, Mayfly, that I started screaming about in 2018. I reviewed it for Rockstar Book Tours, Teenreads, and it ended up making my SheReads top YA 2018 reads, it was that amazing! So you bet your stabby little bottoms [...]

The House In The Cerulean Sea

"How can we fight prejudices if we do nothing to change it? If we allow it to fester, what's the point?" It’s official. I will read anything @tjklunebooks writes. ANYTHING!!! This book. THIS BOOK!!! On the cover, @seananmcguire is quoted as saying, “This book is very close to perfect.” And YES!!! I laughed! I cried! Often on the same [...]

Killing November

You've been accepted to assassin school. But to graduate, you have to survive.

Deal With The Devil

"Nina had broken the cardinal rule, and now she had to kill someone." With an opening sentence like that, I'm sure you can see why I went full grabby hands to get this novel. Then they added mercenary librarians as the series name, and like destiny, this book was mine. I am going to start [...]
