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 […]

Don’t Say a Word (Hometown Antihero #2) by Amber Lynn Natusch

The sequel to Dare You to Lie delivers more of the same high-action tee investigator thrilling mysteries as its predecessor, with our resident badass Kylene Danners also embroiled in a fake dating trope while she works with rookie undercover FBI agent Dawson to bring down an underage sex ring involving students (and possibly teachers!) at […]

The Twin by Natasha Preston

Time for a blurb decontruction! That is NOT the book I was promised. Iris didn’t spend the first few weeks in almost total silence, only speaking to Ivy. She jumped right in with the cheerleader crowd and befriending Ivy’s friends. She was a total social butterfly. Ivy absolutely did not promise Iris that they could […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

I’ll start of by saying that Chima’s writing and me? Did not gel. I am definitely not a fan of Chima’s writing. I know the adage is to show, not tell: but when important plot points are neither shown nor told, it kind of leaves me wondering what the fuck is happening. There are also […]

Honor Bound (The Honors #2) by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I really enjoyed this sequel, and it was worth the wait for my library to get it in audio. Honor Bound takes off where Honor Among Thieves left us, with Nadim and Typhon both injured after their epic battle with the Phage and desperately needing medical attention and defences against the parasitical scourge. The Leviathans […]

What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

This was a great little book, mostly because of how effectively the audience is immersed into the point of view of a love-struck fifteen year old girl finding her place in the world, who doesn’t really understand everything that is going on because the world of adults is confusing. I’m not normally drawn to war […]
