ARC Review: Four Dead Queens

After the crazy intense situation of obtaining this ARC from the Penguin Teen group at BookCon (I’m sure you’ve probably heard all about that by now), I was really excited to pick up this book. It was incredibly hyped and I’ll admit that I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Unfortunately, Four Dead Queens by Astrid… Continue reading ARC Review: Four Dead Queens

ARC Review: The Brilliant Death

To say that I was super excited when I first snagged an ARC of Amy Rose Capetta’s, The Brilliant Death, at BookCon last year would be a bit of an understatement. I mean a medieval Italy and mafia-inspired fantasy story? SOLD. For Teodora DiSangro, a mafia don’s daughter, family is fate. All her life, Teodora has hidden… Continue reading ARC Review: The Brilliant Death

ARC Review: Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha, #1)

Ever since I first snagged Tasha Suri’s debut novel, Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha, #1) at BookCon, I was immediately intrigued by the premise.

But hey, better late than never, right?… Continue reading ARC Review: Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha, #1)

Book Review: The Dark Days Deceit (Lady Helen, #3)

I was super excited for my preorder to arrive when this final came out last month. I couldn’t wait to see what the ending would be for my all of my favorite characters.

Book Review: Jane Steele

Sometimes you just really want to pick up a dark retelling, especially around Halloween. For me, I found the perfect book in Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye. It embodied the grimness of the original while also putting a fresh spin on the tale. Like the heroine of the novel she adores, Jane Steele suffers cruelly at the… Continue reading Book Review: Jane Steele
