Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns #3)

I’m enjoying this series more as it goes on, I think. I feel as if every novel adds a twist or two, solves a riddle or two, and amps up the intensity. I’d love to see Blake’s notes on the history of the queens. I know the losing queens are basically erased from history, but […]

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

There were some things I liked about this book and some things I didn’t, so I’m trying to go middle of the road and rate this a solid 3 stars. I’ll start with the things I didn’t like: Lei had super special pretty beautiful eyes that made her super special and she was treated differently […]

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao

I love an anti-heroine. I love characters who know what they want and steamroll over everyone else to get it. Xifeng’s manipulation of other characters, from her lover Wei to almost the entire royal family was a pleasure to read. She was smart and driven, and I liked that. So I don’t have a problem […]

The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth

Some people will see this as a loving homage to Narnia, with similar elements easily identified: Lucy, Susan and Peter are obviously Evelyn, Philippa, and Jamie, with Aslan recreated in Cervus the stag, and the Woodlands creatures shadows of Narnia natives. Others will see it as a Narnia rip off. For me, I like to […]

Access Restricted (Word$ #2)

I’m really sad this is over. I can’t believe how much I fell in love with this world and Speth and all the characters and just everything. I mean, it’s horrific. It’s awful. But I was just wondering yesterday if it was weird that we pay for phone calls, we pay to send letters to […]

Damsel by Elena K Arnold

My friend Emily May called this an ‘’ugly, awful little book” and she’s absolutely right, it is ugly, it is awful, and it is absolutely awesome. I found Damsel to be highly readable once I figured out it was quirky and whimsical (it took me about two pages). I also found it to be serious […]

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

I really knew nothing about this book before getting into it. I’d only read the blurb, which although it had interested me because HELLO NECROMANCY (I hate zombies though, I know right?) and I hadn’t read any reviews, so I didn’t know: That it was framed from a bard’s point of view. That it was […]

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart

I love YA fantasies about young girls finding their power, but I’m a bit overwhelmed specifically by the ‘women are super oppressed because men find them dangerous’ trope that keeps popping up. Grace and Fury was absolutely fine as a YA fantasy (no magic!) and OK kind of novel really. The best thing about it […]
