Review: A Poison Dark and Drowning by Jessica Cluess

Why Did I Read? I really enjoyed the first book in the series, A Shadow Bright and Burning and have been eager to see what is going to happen next! My Thoughts: So one of the main things that I really love about this series is the backdrop of Victorian England– but with magic! Magicians and sorcerers and monsters and hints of other worlds out there. It appeals to my love of all things fantasy combined with historical […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Why Did I Read? There is a ton of hype surrounding this book but of course, I was intrigued and plus, I am a huge sci-fi fan! My Thoughts: It’s going to be really tough for me to review this book. I just really, really loved it and this book is so unique and is worthy of all the hype, 100%. I didn’t mean to read this in one sitting. But I did. I could not put it down. […]
