Vespertine – Review

Can we all take a moment and gaze in awe at this stunning cover? It is GORGEOUS 🤩 And if you don't have a copy yet, let me tell you. The way the colors swirl and pop is frankly magical. I don't know what alchemy is at play here, but I could stare at this [...]

Beasts and Beauty: Dangerous Tales

How do you like your fairy tales? Sugar and spice and everything nice? Or with lots of sharp teeth? I think we all know what side I'm on. I was thrilled to get a copy of Beasts and Beauty by Soman Chainani. This book is filled with sixteen dangerous stories, giving beloved fairy tales much [...]

Are You Ready To Go ‘Down With This Ship’

I think it's safe to say we all have 'ships that we've had to fight to defend. *cough Reylo cough* Anyway. This book is all about those ship wars. And I totally ship it. Kole Miller loves writing. In fact, her writing gets more views than any other student in her creative writing class, or [...]

In Deeper Waters

Boy oh boy, do I have an amazing book to share with you today! Do you love swashbuckling adventure stories filled with mages, witches, and merpeople, oh my! Stories with pirates and mercenaries and royal machinations? If this sounds like your jam––and since you're here––I'm guessing it does. You should RUN to the nearest bookstore [...]

A Better Bad Idea

Happy Friday Eve! The weekend is generally when all of our better bad ideas come rising to the surface, but apparently that was my Tuesday night, when I stayed up WELL past my bedtime devouring this incredible book. And. Holy. Shit. Talk about amazing! Before we get into that, however. It's important to note that [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Girls Make Better Kings

"Merlin loved magic, but sometimes it was unmistakably the worst." Once & Future was one of my favorite reads last year. 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 [...]
