Mini Reviews: The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley, Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

My Thoughts: The Bedlam Stacks is something I thought I’d really enjoy! I had seen good reviews and it sounded like a really beautiful fantasy story. Unfortunately this one missed the mark for me. The writing is good, I will say that. The descriptions are beautiful and the world is unique. However, I felt zero connection to the main character and as a result, honestly didn’t care about his journey or mission. In fact, I quickly […]

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 […]

Eleanor Fitt is just your normal girl until mass numbers of zombies interrupts her day to day life. The Dead, as they are […]

Audiobook Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

The Sound: I think it was a mistake for me to listen to this one on audio… the whiny aspect of the main character Anna was magnified by actually hearing it. At about 72% I switched over to reading it on my kindle because the MC’s personality grated on me so much and the audio was exacerbating how I felt. The Story: You know, I’ve heard so much about this series and so much about swoony […]

End of An Era || The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead

As you all know, I binge read the Bloodlines series like crazy (five books in four days!) and when The Ruby Circle released, I read it that night. In one sitting. And now it’s over! *cries* My Thoughts: I have to admit, when I first pulled the book out of the box I was a little distraught by how short it was. This is the END. I needed more pages! So it really wasn’t actually that hard to binge […]
