THE GRACES pulled me in with its intriguing description and lovely cover, but ultimately didn’t deliver. Though the writing was lovely, the plot wasn’t as good as it could have been and the ending was, to me, a complete let down.

Romeo and Juliet has never been my favorite. It’s like teenage angst at its best, something which I’m not generally a fan of. BRIGHT SMOKE, COLD FIRE at least didn’t have nearly as much angst as Romeo and Juliet, but it also wasn’t an amazing story either. Hodge seemed to bite off a little more than she could chew, and the result was a scatterbrained story with zombies, magic, and tons of weird stuff going on.

I love fairy tale retellings, and the Snow Queen isn’t a tale you see retold often (not like Beauty and the Beast…) so I was super intrigued by STEALING SNOW. While it had it’s good points, it was unfortunately a little disjointed and seemed to be trying a little too hard at times.

A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING was one of my most anticipated books of the fall. I’ve been looking forward to it since March. So you can imagine how happy I was that it lived up to my high expectations. Honestly, this book just killed me. There were moments that were like a kick to the stomach. There were moments where I was so happy for Henrietta. It was an up and down rollercoaster of emotions that I loved every second of.
