Book Review: A Court of Thor..

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I have been hearing Erin go on about Sarah J. Maas’s writing for quite a while now, and I finally decided to listen and pick up this book. I was excited not only because of the hype, but also because it’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, which is one of my very favorite […]

Book Review: Carve the Mark ..

Book Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Overall, this book gets five nuts! I picked up Carve the Mark when I saw it in the store half because I loved Veronica Roth’s other writing and half because people were saying not to. I don’t like to be told what to do, so naturally I decided I had to read it. Wow. I have no […]

Royal Bastards by Andrew Shv..

Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts

3 Nuts “Game of Thrones meets Six of Crows” is the tagline for this particular book. High praise, and sadly an expectation that it cannot meet. The thing I love most about both of those books is how unpredictable they are. They keep you guessing the whole time, killing characters and making you love/hate others. […]

Traitor’s Kiss by Erin..

Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty

4 Nuts Why is it that so many books in YA hinge on the deception and lies of the two love interests to one another? Had this book not had so much of it I probably would have given it a full 5 stars. Honestly, that trope gets a little old. But I suppose that […]
