Love You To Death/Shadowland by Meg Cabot

This has been published a bunch of times since it first debuted in 2000 under the pen name Jenny Carroll, but the author is actually MEG CABOT from The Princess Diaries fame. Because it was originally published so long ago, back before what I consider to be YA’s explosion years (2005-ish), when it became incredibly […]

Witch by Finbar Hawkins

I did not enjoy most of this book. I don’t really want to write a ‘negative’ review, because I can see how some people might have enjoyed this. But the writing style – although unique, and with an excellent narrative voice, did not gel with me. The book was written with archaic language, playing with […]

These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Sara Raasch has a very competent writing style, and this book hit everything I love about fantasy. A unique magic system: this one based on botanicals: that’s right, the plants are magic! A brave, strong, selfless heroine A handsome rogue of indeterminate sexuality who is not overtly romantically attracted to […]

Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

This is my fourth Tricia Levenseller book, and I’m hooked. I love that this author can put out books that are different enough to be different, but have enough similarities to be familiar. Like Maria V Snyder! It’s so comforting to be able to trust an author like this. Case in point: across all of […]

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston

Having loved Geekerella, I dove straight into The Princess and the Fangirl hoping for more of the same. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I absolutely loved the Con setting, I loved the characters of Jess and Imogen, and even the people around them like Imogen’s brother Milo and his boyfriend, her […]

A Million Worlds With You (Firebird #3) by Claudia Gray

This was an epic conclusion to an incredible series. I enjoyed this book so much. Not only did Claudia Gray deliver an incredible story, but Tavia Gilbert, the audiobook narrator, also delivered another impeccable, incredibly emotional performance. I was so heavily invested the entire time that I even shouted so loud my husband heard me […]

Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird #2) by Claudia Gray

This whole series is proof that I just really don’t care about covers. I’m really sorry, because they are legitimately gorgeous covers, but I didn’t even realise the first book, A Thousand Pieces of You, had two cities represented on it! I just didn’t look that closely because covers are not as important to me […]

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

I generally don’t enjoy books that dump the reader with an already super-powered, super-confident arrogant and entitled lead character with minimal room to grow. However, Alosa is remarkably different to this brand of heroine, and I couldn’t help but love her. Is she super-powered? Yes. Is she super confident? Yes. Is she arrogant? Sometimes, but […]
