This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab

The Worldbuilding The worldbuilding was my FAVORITE part of this book! It’s hard to find something truly unique these days, but the world and monsters that Victoria Schwab has created in this book are nothing like anything I’ve read before. In a way, they had some resemblance to monsters we are familiar with but they were completely different at the same time. This dystopian world was a lot darker than […]

Flashback Friday: A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1) by VE Schwab

Flashback Friday! Flashback Fridays are reviews of books I’ve read before and loved! I re-read these favorites and my reviews discuss both I how felt the first time I read it as well as how I feel after the reread! It hasn’t been all that long since I first read A Darker Shade of Magic and the sequel released in February. VE Schwab was in my area for the A […]

And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) by Kiersten White

I’ve been putting off writing this review because my feelings for this book are so hard to put into words. First of all, I LOVED this book. I received an ARC of this book when I attended YALLWEST earlier this year. Prior to getting the ARC, I hadn’t heard of And I Darken, and even reading the synopsis didn’t really grab me. So needless to say, this book really took […]

May and June Wrap Up

Blog I went to Hawaii in June for a family reunion and I had such a blast! First of all, it was fantastic to see so many of my family members in one place, at one time. I hadn’t seen some of my cousins in years so I loved having a chance to catch up with them. Second of all, it was me and my husband’s first time visiting Hawaii […]

Ivory and Bone (Ivory and Bone #1) by Julie Eshbaugh

The Writing The writing style in this book was strange for me and I didn’t really enjoy it. The story is told from Kol’s POV and the majority of the story (except for the very beginning and end) are in 2nd person because he is telling the story to “you” – and “you” are Mya, another one of the main characters. What I found the most frustrating about this writing […]

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor

GUYSSSSS – I loved this book so so much! This has been on my TBR forever and I don’t know why I put it off for so long. I finally read this during the most recent #SlayThatSeries readathon when Malia @ BookParadise invited me to buddy read it with her. Thanks for reading this amazing book with me Malia! Audiobook I listened to the majority of this on audio and […]

Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

Worldbuilding The world was probably my favorite part of the book! I was really excited and intrigued by the idea of this world and I thought the world building was fairly well done (although it wasn’t quite as fantastic as I had hoped to be honest). The idea of having four countries that were always one season was so fascinating. I loved how people from those countries looked like those […]

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

The World and Plot This book is actually two books in one – one storyline is about Darcy and her publishing journey and the second storyline is her actual book that she publishes (called Afterworlds) in the first storyline (very meta, I know haha). The Darcy part of the story is a contemporary story while the story she wrote is a paranormal story. I was surprised to find I was […]

April Wrap Up

Blog Blogging & Reading – I had a pretty great blogging month in April! I amazingly got a lot of blogging done, with 11 posts in total, and I still got a lot of reading done too! I have been in a big reading mood for over a month now. Reading multiple books at once and also mixing mediums is really speeding up my reading! A Gathering of Shadows was […]
