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 […]

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 […]

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles

So. This book. I can see the similarities to The Phantom of the Opera and Moulin Rouge! which were the selling points that drew me to this book. The elements are there. But it’s just so… Boring. I’m not going to do a ‘real’ review since I didn’t finish the book. I got about three-quarters […]

Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch

This book was about 1 girl and about a hundred dudes. The male/female ratio of this book was way off. The main character was female, and she had literally 1 female friend. Everyone else in this novel, except for a victim of domestic abuse and a ‘cool aunt’ archetype, was male. Literally every single one. […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Forgotten Book by Mechthild Gläser

With a secondary character named Darcy De Winter, who is a rich snobby boy with a sister named Gina and who immediately dislikes our heroine, Emma, you would think that this book has something to do with a Pride and Prejudice retelling, right? Especially since the blurb says “Jane Austen reigns supreme” at the boarding […]

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 […]
