Review: Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller

Why Did I Read? Let’s just say I was looking forward to this book since I first heard it announced and marketed as Firefly meets Dune! I was so on board! My Thoughts: This was a really action packed and thrilling sci-fi ride! I can definitely see the parallels to Firefly and Dune. Our spaceship in question is the Kaitan and our main cast the crew of the Kaitan. I absolutely loved each member on board the Kaitan and all the crew relationships. Everyone is […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Why Did I Read? It sounds so magical and exciting! It sounded just like something I’d love. My Thoughts: Caraval is seriously one of the most hyped books of 2017. It was hyped last year at BEA and the hype only grew as more people read and raved about it. I really meant to get to this way earlier, it was one of my top books from BEA that I wanted! Anyway, I’m kind of conflicted […]

Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Why Did I Read? I really love fairy tale retellings! I’m such a sucker for them. My Thoughts: Well. My first thought after I finished was THANK GOD I’M FINALLY DONE. That’s not a good sign. I just had so many issues with this and I have come to the conclusion that C.J. Redwine is not for me. I feel rather a black sheep about this, so just know that a lot of people loved this […]

Review: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Why Did I Read? Victorian England. Magic. YOU HAVE ME. My Thoughts: I really, really enjoyed this one! I have to say, I really am kind of a sucker for anything Victorian England. Toss in fantasy and that’s like my go to crack. I really liked the set up of this world – that there are sorcerers that protect the realm from the Ancients — a collection of monsters that prey on the people and cause […]
