Review: The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May

Why Did I Read? I have ONLY been anxiously awaiting this series finale since I read an ARC of The Vanishing Throne back in January of 2016 — it has been a LONG wait, let me just say! My Thoughts: Firstly, I just have to say that I feel like this series is so underrated! It is such an intense, amazing series and I want more people to check it out! There’s historical fiction, action, fae, steampunk and […]

Review: The Beast Is An Animal by Peternelle Van Arsdale

Why Did I Read? I was drawn in from the beautiful cover and soul eaters — it just sounded creepy and totally intriguing. My Thoughts: I’m just fairly disappointed after finishing the book. It started off really well — it had a thrilling/creepy atmosphere and I was drawn into the premise. It reminded me of a mix between the movie the Village and historical Salem witch trials and I was really enjoying the feel of the […]

Review: Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

My Thoughts: I’m not going to lie, I was a little wary heading into this one. The majority of my friends on GR had rated this pretty low and I was skeptical. However, I think I enjoyed it more than most! The premise really drew me in — crime families dealing in illegal organ transplants and organ trafficking? I’m in! I thought the set up was really interesting because while these crime families are making a lot […]

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Why Did I Read? I have been so excited for this collection of short stories! Ever since I finished Winter and fell into such a bad book hangover, I have been anticipating Stars Above! My Thoughts: Marissa Meyer is the queen of writing the most magnetic characters and the best friendships and relationships. I have missed these characters so so much and reading the short stories was so much fun! I read them in order and did NOT […]
