Review- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

This was actually quite adorable- I’m not the biggest contemporary fan (though, since I’m currently WRITING a contemporary I should probably be reading more…), but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lara Jean is one of the most relatable characters I’ve ever read, and she seemed so real. She has a ‘quirky’ sense of style, she likes…… Continue reading Review- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Review: A Gathering Of Shadow

In the spirit of A Conjuring of Light’s release (yep, still on that. You read it and see how you’re reacting to it. It’s the kind of book you can’t stop thinking about) I recently reread A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows. Yesterday I reposted the thoughts I had posted back when I read ADSOM…… Continue reading Review: A Gathering Of Shadow

Review: The Historian

THIS BOOK adhjhgfddasdfhjkjhgfd It melds history and literature, my two great loves, taking a historical approach to the Dracula story. Few people actually know that Vlad Tepys- Vlad Dracula- was a real person who truly did horrors to tens of thousands of people over the course of twenty, twenty-five years.

(numb and semi-exhausted, alas that we don’t have any Mount Russshmore… 😉 ) Gemina. Where to begin? There is so much to love about…… Continue reading Gemina Review

An Ember In The Ashes Review

asdfghjklkjhgfdsdfghjkjhgfdsdfghjklkjhgfd. This book kinda killed me. I sense a pattern in my choices… Where do I begin? Elias was a precious cinnamon roll. Laia was so much stronger than she let on, and Izzi was adorable and I loved her. Keris was horrible and I hated her, but she’s one of the better-written sadist villains…… Continue reading An Ember In The Ashes Review
