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 [...]

Book Review: The Mirk and Midnight Hour

Book Review: The Mirk and Midnight Hour

The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson was an atmospheric historical fiction retelling of the Scottish ballad, Tam Lin. I had never heard of the ballad before, which I think really helped me to enjoy the story even more since I was going into it blind. A Southern girl. A wounded soldier. A chilling force [...]

Book Review: Honor Bound (The Honors, #2)

Book Review: Honor Bound (The Honors, #2)

While I enjoyed the first book in the series, I wasn't completely enthralled with it. However, this sequel blew it out of the water completely. Honor Bound (The Honors, #2) by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre is the perfect action-filled sequel in this science fiction series. Zara Cole was a thief back on Earth, but she’s been [...]

Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six

Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six

I'm just going to prepare you now - this will be a gushing review. I enjoyed The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo but wasn't as enamored with it as everyone else seems to be, so my expectations for this one were a little tempered. However, Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid was a smash hit for [...]

ARC Review: The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

ARC Review: The Fever King (Feverwake, #1)

I actually went into this book fairly blind to the plot and I am so glad that I did. The Fever King (Feverwake, #1) by Victoria Lee was such an interesting and engaging story, weaving current societal themes into a dystopian fantasy. In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the [...]

ARC Review: Pride

ARC Review: Pride

When I received this ARC at BookCon last year, I was really excited. I love a good retelling, especially one that is able to bring a completely new spin to the original story. And while Ibi Zoboi's Pride was able to take the story in a new direction, it wasn't even close to living up to my [...]

Book Review: Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3)

Book Review: Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3)

Let me preface this by saying that two years is too freaking long to wait between releases for a fantasy series. Luckily, I enjoy this series too much that I won't hate on Susan Dennard for pushing back Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3). Fans of Susan Dennard's New York Times bestselling Witchlands series have fallen in love with the [...]

Book Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1)

Book Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1)

To say that I've been dying until this book was released would be a bit of understatement. I was able to snag a sampler at BookCon last year and was immediately hooked. And I am happy to say that A Curse So Dark and Lonely (A Curse So Dark and Lonely, #1) by Brigid Kemmerer, lived up [...]
