Book Review: The Last Magician (The Last Magician, #1)

Book Review: The Last Magician (The Last Magician, #1)

I wasn't really sure what to expect with Lisa Maxwell's The Last Magician (The Last Magician, #1). I had heard many good things about the book and the premise sounded very interesting, but I was never fully hyped on reading it. However, I'm glad that I did as it turned out to be an interesting read with [...]

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... Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow… Where, [...]

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. Kelly Powell's Songs from the Deep was such a beautifully atmospheric story that immediately captured my attention and transported me to Twillengyle. Big thank you to Simon and [...]

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: 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: 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 [...]

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 [...]
