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 […]

Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns #3)

I’m enjoying this series more as it goes on, I think. I feel as if every novel adds a twist or two, solves a riddle or two, and amps up the intensity. I’d love to see Blake’s notes on the history of the queens. I know the losing queens are basically erased from history, but […]

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

There were some things I liked about this book and some things I didn’t, so I’m trying to go middle of the road and rate this a solid 3 stars. I’ll start with the things I didn’t like: Lei had super special pretty beautiful eyes that made her super special and she was treated differently […]

Girls Made of Snow and Glass

I’m so torn about how I feel about this audiobook. It was just. So. LONG. But then, every word was worth it? So how can I say, maybe it would have been better if it was split in half and delivered in two novels when I freaking hate when authors do that. But I had […]

Allied (Ruined #3) by Amy Tintera

I thought this series as a whole was enjoyable and entertaining. I read a lot of firsts in a series and choose not to continue them, primarily because a) I want to try everything and b) if it’s not spectacular, it’s not worth my time investing in reading the rest. Ruined was spectacular. Avenged was […]

Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell

In Garden of Thorns, teen burlesque dancer Rose decides to escape the company that is holding her prisoner by taking a hostage at the next show. But it turns out he’s the exiled heir and leader of the rebellion, and he takes her hostage in the mistaken belief that she is an assassin, and spirits […]

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

Ash Princess is a story that I think was partly inspired by Sansa Stark in season 2-4 of Game of Thrones: our heroine, Theodosia, is the daughter of a murdered queen being raised in the court of her enemy. Like Sansa, she has red hair, the queen calls her ‘little (animal)’, she is beaten mercilessly […]

One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns #2) by Kendare Blake

One Dark Throne continues the story from Three Dark Crowns, where three magically-powered triplet queens must murder each other until one is crowned Queen of Fennbirn Island. To be honest, this book was a little lacking for me. The final rating for me is 3.5, rounded up to 4 in some cases, mostly because the […]

Long May She Reign Reigned Long In My Heart

Freya is twenty-third in line to the throne, so she’s never meant to be queen. Until a mass murder at a feast leaves her on the throne. The question is, who is responsible for the murders, and are they angry they missed Freya? Will they come after her? And how can she make being queen […]

SUMMARY Three girl triplets are born to every generation, three queens who one day must battle to kill each other with the victor crowned queen of the island. PLOT Each triplet born is supposed to be gifted […]
