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 reminded me of a mix between the movie the Village and historical Salem witch trials and I was really enjoying the feel of the […]

My Thoughts: A few things first: I absolutely love Leigh’s writing. She’s one of my favorite fantasy authors because her writing is amazing and draws me in. Her story telling is also amazing. I love all the schemes in this book and the twists upon twists upon […]
