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

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 [...]

Book Review: Heart of Iron (Heart of Iron, #1)

Book Review: Heart of Iron (Heart of Iron, #1)

As soon as I heard this book was being labeled as Anastasia-meets-Firefly, I knew that I had to pick it up. And I'm so glad I did. Ashley Poston's Heart of Iron (Heart of Iron, #1) was just the right amount of fun that will always keep my attention. Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and [...]

Book Review: The Summer Before the War

Book Review: The Summer Before the War

Whenever I read a good historical fiction novel, I feel a strong sense of nostalgia for some reason. 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)

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 [...]

Book Review: Foundryside (Founders, #1)

Book Review: Foundryside (Founders, #1)

I had only been hearing amazing things about this newest release from Robert Jackson Bennett, and since I'm such a fantasy-lover, I knew I had to try it.. And yes, the hype is real. It did take me a little time to get through this book but Foundryside (Founders, #1) was totally worth it. Sancia Grado is [...]

Book Review: Sorcery of Thorns

Book Review: Sorcery of Thorns

Margaret Rogerson has truly solidified her spot on my favorite authors list with her sophomore release, Sorcery of Thorns. I thought I loved An Enchantments of Ravens, but it was nothing like my experience with this book. All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one [...]
