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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

Five Dark Fates (Three Dark Crowns #4) by Kendare Blake

I don’t normally follow a series through to completion, because there are too many good books out there and I only have a limited time to read them. I’m happy to give the first book in a seires a go, but following it on to a sequel, let alone an entire series, isn’t common for […]

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 […]
