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 [...]

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 [...]

The imagination of putting the legend of King Arthur in space with a diverse set of knights and a girl as King was genius. I loved every single twist and turn and thought the [...]

A Breathtaking Thriller

"Labels come with assumptions. They assume the bad kids are always monsters, and the good ones never are." If one quote can summarize a book so poetically while also holding back so much, it's this one. Read it, and then read it again, and then assume that you're going to make assumptions while reading only [...]

A Heartbreaking Valentine

"What a thing an oil boom is for a town. It brings in the very best sort of psychopath." Be warned from the start, this book is a difficult journey to embark on. The plot is centered around a violent rape and the ramifications that violence carries with it. And while the topic is handled [...]
