Review: The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy #1) by S.A. Chakraborty

Review: The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy #1) by S.A. Chakraborty

January 5, 2018 Review 2

If I was rating the first half of THE CITY OF BRASS, it wouldn’t get very many stars. I nearly put the book down at 25% and never picked it up again – but this book has received a lot of love lately, and I wanted so very much to like it that I pushed through. And I am so glad I did. By the end of THE CITY OF BRASS, I understood the hype and I was reading this book like it was the air I need to live.

Release Day Review: The Texas Shifter’s Mate, by Karen Whiddon

Release Day Review: The Texas Shifter’s Mate, by Karen Whiddon

January 1, 2018 Review 2

With so much focus on the underwater characters, it’s disappointing that THE TEXAS SHIFTER’S MATE didn’t try to capitalize on the originality of its premise. This book should have had the word mermaid in the title. Zach and Shayla are torn between land and sea for most of the book, which makes their HEA that much more satisfying.

5Bat! Review: The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden

5Bat! Review: The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden

I loved THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE so much, and wasn’t expecting THE GIRL IN THE TOWER to live up to my lovely remembrances of the first book, mainly because I felt that the story in THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had been wrapped up. What more could possibly happen? Luckily, Arden managed to pull a story out of thin air and the reader gets to enjoy a whole new adventure with Vasya.

Review: The Wicked + The Divine Christmas Annual

Review: The Wicked + The Divine Christmas Annual

December 22, 2017 Review 0

The Wicked + Divine series is about twelve gods who, every 90 years are reincarnated as humans and only live for two years. Unfortunately for me, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL issue was not in fact a one off Christmas special comic that a new reader to this series (it has 36 issues to it already!) could jump right in and enjoy.

Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

December 20, 2017 Review 0

WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is an important, excellently-crafted novel. If you love magical realism, you’ll gorge yourself on metaphors, similes, and imagery. However, like most magical realism books, WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is heavy on emotional growth but light on plot.

Review: The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE is one of those books that has me stumped. It was one of those that while I enjoyed myself while I was reading it, I didn’t absolutely love it, and I’m almost at a loss as to what to say about it in a review. Almost.

Review: Waxing Moon (Calling the Moon Book 2) by Sarah E. Stevens

Review: Waxing Moon (Calling the Moon Book 2) by Sarah E. Stevens

December 15, 2017 Review 2

Tension is a major mood in WAXING MOON which is felt in so many tones from Julie having to deal with conflicting desires for how Julie should live her life to the very real threat of a rival supernatural group bent on killing her son, Carson. Much of the story is action-packed and pretty thrilling to read.
