Sisters of Shadow and Light by Sara B Larson

To be completely honest with you (and that’s the only way to be when writing a book review), I requested this book for review from Netgalley because I mistook the author for someone else: someone whose books I had previously enjoyed and whose other books were on my to-read list. I was so wrong. I’ve […]

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Apparently I missed the memo that said this book was about a ‘bisexual necromancer’ and that was pretty much all everyone was talking about, because I don’t really hang out in social media for my book blogging. As such, I went into this book expecting a story about a necromancer who slays and then raises […]

This Heart of Mine by CC Hunter

I’ve been really getting into YA mysteries lately, and though it’s really macabre, I love an investigation into whether an alleged suicide is actually a suicide. I picked this book because it sounded really interesting with a heart transplant twist, with the main female character receiving visions from her donor, who just happens to be […]

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

Jodi Picoult might be a household name, but this book is about 80% terrible and the remaining 20% that is actually interesting isn’t worth my time. There’s slut-shaming, girl-hating, and the female main character Delilah has physically assaulted two other girls so far. Yet somehow SHE’S the victim. And then, when Delilah explains that she […]

Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog

I was seriously contemplating quitting this book by about 15% through, because the protagonist, Vic, was behaving like a psycho, and literally every thought in her head was about the new mystery boy at school, Z. So I looked up some spoilers, because I was not happy to waste my time on another typical YA […]

People Like Us by Dana Mele

Going in to this book, I didn’t know is was sapphic, and to be honest, the blurb doesn’t hint at it very much. In fact, I put off borrowing this audiobook from my library for a few weeks because I assumed it would be a usual hetero-style romance thing, which it most definitely was not. […]

The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco

I absolutely adored The Bone Witch trilogy by Rin Chupeco. Such incredible world-building. Such well-rounded, dynamic characters. Such complicated motivations. I’m sorry to say that The Never Tilting World pales somewhat in comparison. I loved the world-building. I did find it remarkably similar to Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake, in that each generation a […]

The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby

I’m cultivating a new love for YA thrillers, and The Stranger Game is so far a quiet gem for me. It began with the return of Nico’s missing sister, Sarah. Except that Sarah seemed… not quite right. Instead of being a total psycho bitch, cruel to both her parents and her younger sister, this Sarah […]
