Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

If I pick up a book that everyone seems to love, typically I love it too. I'm pretty easy to satisfy as far as books go. I think I'm decent at identifying good vs. bad writing, plot holes vs. perfectly executed plots, strong characters vs. weak characters. This comes with reading tons of good books… Continue reading Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book Review: My Plain Jane

MY PLAIN JANE is a Gothic, humorous Jane Eyre retelling that will have you giggling. If you liked MY LADY JANE, you will like this is as well. However, I didn't like MLJ. I couldn't get past the fact that the love interest turned into a horse. I get it, it's supposed to be funny… Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane

Book Review: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

A perfect read for my honeymoon in Mexico. The Wicked Deep was one of the most beautiful and whimsical novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. It has definitely secured its spot as my favorite of 2018 thus far. It's hard not to enjoy Shea Ernshaw's writing style. She has a way of giving… Continue reading Book Review: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Book Review: The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

Although her mother suffered from depression for many years, Leigh believed strongly that she would get through it. Leigh becomes… Continue reading Book Review: The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

Reading Game of Thrones AFTER Watching the Show and Why I Hate Re-reading

I had a bit of a late start to the Game of Thrones TV show. I started to watch when season five was already out, quickly becoming addicted and in desperate need of more Jon Snow. I'm not sure I've ever been more entranced by a show. Every character had major flaws (some more than… Continue reading Reading Game of Thrones AFTER Watching the Show and Why I Hate Re-reading

Book Review: Reign of The Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Necromancers are highly regarded in Karthia, a place where change is disregarded and the dead walk among the living. They are the only ones that can safely travel to the Deadlands, where spirits reside until the move on to who knows where. Odessa is affectionately called “Sparrow” since she is the best at finding her… Continue reading Book Review: Reign of The Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Now, I've been a fan of the fae since Lord of The Rings (helllooooo Orlando… Continue reading Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

My 2018 Reading Goals

I've been reading everyone's bookish goals for 2018 and decided I needed to give it a go.
