Review: Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

Why Did I Read? I loved Vengeance Road so much and love westerns in general so you can imagine how excited I was to hear about a companion novel coming out! My Thoughts: Retribution Rails is set about 10 years after the events of Vengeance Road following new characters Reece and Charlotte. I did feel like this one started off a bit slow and it took me longer than I expected to get into it (maybe this is […]

I used to do these reread reviews a few years ago when I was doing a reread challenge and decided I missed doing them! I reread a lot more now and thought it’d be fun to quickly talk about them!

What I Remember: I remember loving the friendship and I remember it being heartbreaking and sobbing. 🙁 Why I Wanted to Reread: Well, […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

Why Did I Read? Vlad the Impaler story with a badass female lead? Historical fiction? I was so in. My Thoughts: I have really complicated feelings about this book. I really liked most parts of it but some parts really dragged and left me feeling underwhelmed. The book starts off with our main character Lada as a young child growing up — we see that from a young age she is already fierce, strong and determined. […]
