REVIEW: The Dark Tide

“Eva had reached her limit for human interaction.  She could feel the climbing tension in her muscles, the sharp stab of irritation every time another person spoke, the rising desire to pluck one of her hairpins out of her braids and shove it through someone’s throat.” ——————— Ok, I think Jasinska captured my personality inContinue reading “REVIEW: The Dark Tide”

Review: Anna K Away

Last year, I got an ARC of Anna K and was so excited for a modern retelling of one of my favorite classics. I adored it, it was fresh and modern and still had the emotional punch of the original. I then went on to win a caption contest giveaway from the lovely Jenny LeeContinue reading “Review: Anna K Away”

Map Monday Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin

“The past devours those naive enough to forget it.” ————————– “Why punish a seed for not yet being a tree?”————————– This just may be my favorite book of the year. The world building in this novel is some of the best I’ve ever experienced in YA fantasy. The world of Sonande is built with suchContinue reading “Map Monday Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin”

REVIEW: Namesake

I am so glad that this sequel lived up to all my expectations after absolutely loving Fable. The aspects I loved about Fable were the adventure of the dredging and the complex character stories where not everyone was all good or all bad.  Namesake sees Fable about to start off on her own with WestContinue reading “REVIEW: Namesake”

REVIEW: Tigers Not Daughters

“We’d always thought Jessica was mean because she was so full of life that it chafed at her from the inside out. She was always simmering, and it reminded us of a pot of stew on the stove. She contained so much beneath her skin, and when it got heated up, all those things tumbledContinue reading “REVIEW: Tigers Not Daughters”

Review – Lobizona

“Plant your new garden with the seeds of a quality, water it with tolerance and empathy, and warm it with a temperate heat of truth.” ——————————— I really loved Lobizona, I’d say that it is Furia meets Harry Potter (without the prejudices) meets Twilight (think of only the wolf pack part). Manu has no ideaContinue reading “Review – Lobizona”

REVIEW: Phoenix Flame

Havenfall was a 5 star read for me, I really loved the balance of the contemporary real world and fantasy realms that intersect in an unusual way with a select few folks guarding the doors. Maddie is a plucky, opinionated, passionate teen at the center of it all. She copes with balancing the world onContinue reading “REVIEW: Phoenix Flame”
