Book Review: The Wicked Deep

Book Review: The Wicked Deep

Everyone has been raving about Shea Ernshaw's The Wicked Deep, ever since it was first released early last year. I was finally convinced to give it a shot recently and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. Sometimes the hype is actually deserved...

Blog Tour Book Review: Songs from the Deep

Blog Tour Book Review: Songs from the Deep

Debut novels always excite me, as I could possibly have found a new favorite author. And I'm so happy to say that that was the case with this book.

Book Review: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1)

I know that almost every single one of us that grew up with Harry Potter, has had very little success recreating that feeling of whimsy and magic in other books or movies. However, I will say that while reading Jessica Townsend's Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1), I felt that feeling of nostalgia that reminded me [...]

Maybe it's because I read mostly historical fiction when I was a child, or maybe it's just my strong love of history that draws me completely in. But for whatever reason, I definitely got that feeling while [...]

Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

I was surprised by the lyrical writing in The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough. It really heightened the fantasy and romance in this historical fiction novel. Antony and Cleopatra. Helen of Troy and Paris. Romeo and Juliet. And now . . . Henry and Flora. For centuries Love and Death have chosen their [...]

Book Review: Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)

I have never heard anyone talking about this book but when I read the synopsis, I knew I had to give it a shot. Greek gods fighting against each other in modern times? Check. Trojan War heroes being reincarnated? Check. Gritty urban fantasy courtesy of Kendare Blake? Check. So basically everything I could ever ask [...]
