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 […]

Book Review: A Court of Wing..

Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

I have now read through this series twice, and I adore it. All my favorite books are the ones where I discover more and more each time I read them, and this series definitely falls into that category. CHARACTERS  The characters keep evolving and building through this series, which I appreciate. Many of the things […]

Book Review: A Court of Mist..

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

I actually picked this book up and read it immediately after finishing A Court of Thorns and Roses, but after finishing the series (as it currently stands at three novels,) I am rereading. This is my review after the second readthrough. CHARACTERS  The characters in this book are amazing! I loved seeing my favorites return, and […]

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 […]

The Intelligent MC: A Review of Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

5 Stars I went back and forth about how I wanted to rate this book. Is it a 4 1/2 or a 5 star book for me? Certainly its my favorite book I’ve read this year. Surely that makes it a 5 star book? But me loving a book and it being a nearly perfect […]

DNF: Kingdom of Little Wound..

DNF: Kingdom of Little Wounds

DNF   *sigh* I want to like this book. Really, if I’m truly honest I don’t actually dislike the book I just don’t want to finish reading it. I found myself a bit surprised to see it labeled as YA if only because it’s a bit more graphic than I expected a YA to be. […]

Novella Review: The Black Kn..

Novella Review: The Black Knife

4.5 Nuts   Like most of these novellas, this novella contains spoilers for The Orphan Queen. If you don’t want to be spoiled do not read this review. It is also recommended that you do not read these novellas until you have read The Orphan Queen. These novellas are best when read in order.   […]

Novella Review: The Burning ..

Novella Review: The Burning Hand

4.5 Nuts   This is the third novella in the Orphan Queen series, which make MUCH more sense if read in order.   This is the novella I like to refer to as the “novella of secrets”. Seriously, everyone has a secret. First, there’s a HUGE, MEGA AWESOME secret regarding James, which if you’ve read […]

Novella Review: The Glowing ..

Novella Review: The Glowing Knight

4 Nuts   This is the second novella in Tobiah’s backstory. If you haven’t read The Orphan Queen and don’t know Tobiah’s secret then these novellas will spoil a MAJOR plot point for you and you will be sad bananas. The Glowing Knight picks up where the Hidden Prince left off, with Tobiah trying to […]
