Forest of Souls by Lori M Lee

I really liked Lori M Lee’s short story Steel Skin in A Thousand Beginning and Endings, so I was really looking forward to Forest of Souls I think Sirscha’s name is supposed to be Saoirse, as in Saoirse Ronan (Saoirse is pronounced “Sur-sha”), the Irish actress. It’s like the author heard the name and went, […]

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

I don’t know what happened. I was listening to this book, and it was just kind of average, and then all of a sudden it was over and I wanted more. This book is about the audition process for a gender fluid character named Sal, also Auditioner Twenty-Three, to have a shot at becoming the […]

Pivot Point by Kasie West

I have a problem with the fundamental plot of this book. In this book, Addie can take a peek into two futures based on decisions she might make at any one point. It’s called Searching and is a rare paranormal gift in her paranormal community. It literally benefits and affects no one but her. She […]

The Winter Duke by Claire Eliza Bartlett

I’m really torn on how I feel about The Winter Duke, because there were some really good, interesting, original aspects, but some aspects also fell short. In The Winter Duke, Ekata’s whole family mysteriously falls ill, leaving her as the new Grand Duke of Kilma Above, a tiny sovereign nation with a palace made entirely […]

Don’t Say a Word (Hometown Antihero #2) by Amber Lynn Natusch

The sequel to Dare You to Lie delivers more of the same high-action tee investigator thrilling mysteries as its predecessor, with our resident badass Kylene Danners also embroiled in a fake dating trope while she works with rookie undercover FBI agent Dawson to bring down an underage sex ring involving students (and possibly teachers!) at […]

The Twin by Natasha Preston

Time for a blurb decontruction! That is NOT the book I was promised. Iris didn’t spend the first few weeks in almost total silence, only speaking to Ivy. She jumped right in with the cheerleader crowd and befriending Ivy’s friends. She was a total social butterfly. Ivy absolutely did not promise Iris that they could […]

ARC Review: The Chalice and the Crown by Kassandra Flamouri

The Chalice and the Crown by Kassandra Flamouri is not a typical YA fantasy. It’s dark, it’s gritty, it’s triggering. It considers some pretty timely themes about racism, classism, and mental illness. It contains animal cruelty and sadistic villains and some pretty hardcore bigotry. The book starts out with a young ballerina, Sasha, as she […]

Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch

This book was about 1 girl and about a hundred dudes. The male/female ratio of this book was way off. The main character was female, and she had literally 1 female friend. Everyone else in this novel, except for a victim of domestic abuse and a ‘cool aunt’ archetype, was male. Literally every single one. […]

The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller

HOW A HUFFLEPUFF FELL IN LOVE WITH A SLYTHERIN (the Hufflepuff is me, btw) To be honest, I never understood why so many of my book loving peers lusted after actual asshole bad guys, like Draco Malfoy, until Alessandra came along. I would despise Alessandra in real life. She’s the complete opposite of me and […]
