An Underwater Adventure! – The Vanishing Deep Review

Remember Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte? Well, I gave that 5 stars. And it’s exactly the same situation for Scholte’s latest release The Vanishing Deep. But where Four Dead Queens was FAR from perfect, but got 5 stars for the enjoyability factor, The Vanishing Deep earned 5 stars the good old fashioned way. It…

I’m In Love – A Curse So Dark And Lonely Review

Ok so ya’ll know that, based off of a lot of my past reads, I seem to like the idea of retellings more than the actual retelling itself more often than not. Honestly, so far I’ve pretty much only enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles retellings by Marissa Meyer. Well Queen, move over because the crown belongs…

Double Feature: Teenagers, Drama & Danger

Teenage drama…you know, when I was an actual teenager I wanted absolutley zero to do with it, but now that I’m an adult I LOVE indulging in a little guilty pleasure via book form! And that’s great news because I recentley read two teenage-drama focused books. All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban and Clique…

A YA Fantasy Classic Retelling – Belle Revolte Review

So on Goodreads I gave Belle Revolte 3 stars, but my actual rating is 3.25/5. That may not seem like an important distinction, but it is to me. Belle Revolte is one of those books where the cover drew me in immediately. I mean, just look at it! It’s stunning, it’s like dripping donut glaze…

The Sound of Five Stars – The Sound of Stars Review

I feel so lucky and grateful to have been sent an early copy of The Sound of Stars. I had seen it in a Ink Yard Press’s stories and I had re-storied it to mine, tagging the author and Ink Yard Press stating how excited I was for this title. And Alechia Dow – the…

Some dreams chase you back… – Reverie review

Reverie by Ryan La Sala is a very unusual book that is described as Inception meets The Magicians, but I don’t think that does it justice. That’s because Reverie is many things, but above all is highly imaginative, unapologetic in its queerness, magical and 100% original. Reverie is a YA fantasy that I promise you,…

It hurts SO good! – A Heart So Fierce and Broken Review

Ok, so you know that feeling when you loved the first book in a series and you’re both SUPER excited for the sequel but you’re also nervous in case it’s not as good? Well, A Heart So Fierce and Broken will give you no reason to worry and every reason to be excited! A Curse…

Behold, my fury! – The Furies Review

The Furies by Katie Lowe is one of those books that I was so excited to read based on premise alone but I didn’t hype it up in my own head. I’m glad I didn’t do this because otherwise I would have been really, really disappointed instead of like…meh. In all honesty, The Furies is…
