ARC Review: Release by Patrick Ness

I was SO excited to be approved for this eARC from Edelweiss because I’m a big Patrick Ness fan – his Chaos Walking series is one of my all time favorite series! I had really high hopes for this book and, while it didn’t quite meet my (very high) expectations, I really enjoyed it. I was surprised to find that there is a parallel storyline in this book that gives […]

ARC Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson + Giveaway!!

I received an ARC of this from the publishers at YallWest earlier this year. Thanks Margaret K. McElderry Books! World Building I loved the world Margaret Rogerson built in this book! I’m torn about the it being a stand alone because, while it’s nice not to be starting a new series, I still wanted more time in this world. I haven’t read many book about fae and I loved the […]

ARC Review: Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles #1) by Jodi Meadows

I was so excited to be approved for this eARC through Edelweiss (I’ve been having more luck than usual with Edelweiss recently – anybody else??). Thanks publishers! I have really enjoyed the first two books in Jodi Meadows’ New Soul trilogy (gotta pick up that last book soon!), as well as Lady Jane which she collaborated on, so I was very excited when I heard she had a new fantasy […]

ARC Review: They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

While I don’t usually read contemporaries, the idea behind this book really intrigued me. It had me wondering what it would be like to live in a world where everyone found out they were going to die the day of their death? Plus, I’ve heard so many good things about Adam Silvera and had yet to read one of his books. So I decided to request this one from Edelweiss […]

ARC Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons #1) by Leigh Bardugo + Giveaway!!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC copy of this book when I attended YALLWest earlier this year (thank you Random House!). I am a HUGE Leigh Bardugo fan because I’ve loved the four books of hers I have read so far. I was so excited about this book because of the author, despite not being a big comic book hero fan. In the end, not […]

ARC Review: The List by Patricia Forde

Writing The writing style of this book was definitely the highlight of the book for me. If the book wasn’t as well written as it was, I doubt I would have finished it. While leaning on the simple side (which is perfect for middle grade readers), the writing flowed well and had a great balance of description and action. There were times where I felt the pace start to lag, […]

July 2017 Wrap Up

Books I Read It might look like I had a decent reading month with four books in this wrap up, but the first three I read mostly in June and just finished in July. The last book I devoured in just a few days in the middle of the month and then I haven’t finished anything since then! August isn’t off to the greatest start, but I’m hoping to pick […]

#BeatTheBacklist Readathon Vlog

I participated in the #BeatTheBacklist weekend readathon back in March and I vlogged that weekend! I finally got around to sharing this readathon vlog this week on my BookTube channel. It’s a little long, but I’ve included some time stamps below in case anyone is interested in specific books and progress I made. During this readathon I read The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima, The Great Hunt by Robert […]

Spring 2017 Wrap Up

Since I’ve been completely MIA since January, I thought I would do a quick wrap up of the books I read in the spring (March-May). I didn’t read very many books this spring due to my busy schedule at the time (which put me in a major reading slump!) but that makes for a much more manageable number of books to put into a post. 🙂 In fact, most of […]

ARC Review: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC of this book when I attended YALLWest earlier this year. Thanks Simon Pulse! The synopsis sounded like an amazing combination of fantasy, historical fiction, and time travel – AND IT WAS. I always go into ARCs wearily because more often than not I DON’T actually enjoy ARCs, but this one totally blew me away. I couldn’t put it down, […]
