Kind of a Big Deal by Shannon Hale

When I first red this book’s blurb, I was pretty excited. A book about going into and experiencing other stories! Pretty cool concept! Then, after I borrowed this audiobook from my library and started listening to it, I saw a couple of reviews that were not so favourable. I honestly do not understand all the […]

Set Fire to the Gods by Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons

I have a definite weakness, and it’s when gods appear in something akin to a human form and live among their subjects. It doesn’t matter whether you believe in them, because they’re real whether you have faith or not. It appeals to my atheist heart. So when this book was announced as Gladiator meets Avatar: […]

Ruin of Stars (Mask of Shadows #2) by Linsey Miller

Apparently I have a lot of thoughts about this book. Maybe you should get a hot drink or something before reading this. The TL:DR version is ‘Overall this book had a great concept but was marred by poor/inconsistent writing’. As a sequel, the timing in the book was all off. Sal kept insisting that they’d […]

Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

This literally feels like Twilight AU fanfiction, albeit one that is a hundred times better than the other famous Twilight AU fanfiction. Even pointing out that abomination makes me feel dirty, like I am sullying this review, since this particular Twilight-esque book was vastly superior in every way, unless you’re into rape fantasies; and in […]

Vow of Thieves (Dance of Thieves #2) by Mary E Pearson

First and foremost the thing I loved most about this book is that rather than rehashing the same storytelling technique of having dual points of view telling the same story, Pearson split our couple up early on so that the dual points of view could work together to tell two different stories, which I really […]

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J Maas

This was not a good book… But I kind of liked parts of it. The first half was super boring, and I had to borrow it from my library 4 times, which is part of the reason why it took so long to read. (Six months! So why bother? Because I wanted to see three […]

Angel Mage by Garth Nix

Garth Nix is the Australian master of worldbuilding. I’m not even joking. Y’all should know that I don’t deliberately seek out male authors (because male authors tend to write books for men about men to the detriment of women) but Nix is one of my exceptions, and I’m happy to share that Angel Mage is […]

Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

I really enjoyed this book from Mindee Arnett. When I borrow books from my local library, as I did for this audiobook, I often don’t bother looking them up on Goodreads beforehand because it’s not a monetary investment, so the only thing I’m st to lose if I don’t like it is time. So I […]
