Serpent and Dove by Shelby M..

Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin

4.5 Nuts   All aboard the hype train! After having tons of people beat me over the head with the need to have me read these books I finally picked up the first one. SERPENT AND DOVE is part His Fair Assassins, part Witcher, and all fantasy goodness. Shelby Mahurin’s books have often been heard in the same […]

The Wicked King by Holly Bla..

The Wicked King by Holly Black

  Holy sloggy slog-fest, Batman! WICKED KING is a snore-acolypse Yeah, I know. I’m surprised too. I really enjoyed THE CRUEL PRINCE  the first time I read it. Now, having gone back and reread it before WICKED KING I see a lot more flaws with it. I still enjoyed it but not nearly as much. […]

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J Maas

5 Nuts I find myself debating, is this book a 4.5 or a 5 nut rating? Back when I originally read it I probably would have said 4-4.5. Coming off of the wait from HEIR OF FIRE and QUEEN OF SHADOWS, EMPIRE OF STORMS would have seemed like a lot of set up for little […]

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J Maas

Funny how things change. When HOUSE OF EARTH AND BLOOD came out I was so put off by the urban fantasy setting and the sloggy first 100 pages that I gave it up and moved on to something else. Fast forward to a few months ago when the audiobook shows up on an audible deal and […]

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Ma..

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas

Yeah, I have no idea what happened. I guess my leaving the blog for a while meant that I never got around to reviewing the last book in the Throne of Glass series. Weird. So anyway, here’s KINGDOM OF ASH by Sarah J Maas. This is not my favorite book in the series. That distinction […]

Meat Cute (Parasol Protectorate #0) by Gail Carriger

  Freaking Gail does it again. We asked and she delivered, the Hedgehog Incident is finally here at last. If you love the Parasol Protectorate then you’ll want this little ebook short in your collection. Welcome to MEAT CUTE. If you’ve read SOULLESS, you’ll know there was an incident involving a hedgehog prior to the […]

Defy or Defend by Gail Carri..

Defy or Defend by Gail Carriger

DEFY OF DEFEND (Delightfully Deadly #2) The Universe I have a few books or series that I go back to when I can’t figure out what else to read. They’re a sort of happy place, a familiar world that calms me. At the very top of this list sits Gail Carriger and pretty much everything […]

A Court of Silver Flames by ..

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas

+1   I doubt my rating here is a surprise to anyone. A large population of the book world love Maas and her writing, especially when it comes to this particular series. That said, this rating is not based purely on that fact. No this book earned it purely on its own merit and on […]

Crown of Gilded Bones by Jen..

Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L Armentrout

  This book deserves 10 freaking nuts. Ho-ly shit. I’m not one to spend over $20 on a single book but I finished THE CROWN OF GILDED BONES and immediately bought all 3 hardcovers for $29 a piece. It’s that good. It’s so good in fact that I also preordered the first book in the […]

Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L Armentrout

  How many books have you read a book where you put it down after completing and waste no time picking up the next? No breather, no moment to consider, just grabbing the next to continue on the saga without interruption? That was me after reading FROM BLOOD AND ASH. I finished my audiobook, put […]
