Review: “A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas

I prepared for a barrage of comments about my review for this book because… Well, I was rather underwhelmed with this book. Yes, it was better than A Court of Thorns and Roses but I wasn’t falling out of my seat in anticipation. Truthfully, there were times this book dragged on. I mean, it’s over 600 pages!

Well, here goes. *hides under a table*

Review: “Cress” (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

Look, it’s not that I don’t think this is a great series because it is. I don’t even think I can pick a favorite character, though I’m prone towards Thorne because it’s hilarious, and I think my favorite couple might just be Scarlet and Thorne because he’s dark and brooding but Cress and Thorne come in a close second because they’re just totes adorbs.

But I’m not as enamored with the series as I hoped to be. I don’t even know why! What’s wrong with me? I don’t know. There’s no excuse. That’s just how it is. #sorrynotsorry Or something like that…

Review: “A Shadow Bright and Burning” by Jessica Cluess

Heavens me, it’s over, it’s finally over. I don’t think I could have read another page which is saying a lot because I read the entire book! There were so many times I wanted to DNF but I plucked up the courage to pushed through. Reluctantly. So reluctantly.

I’m sad that I didn’t like this book. It sounds freakin’ awesome! I mean, Victorian England and fantasy? What’s not to like? Those are my two favorite things…ever. Seriously.

Review: “Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2)” by Leigh Bardugo

Oh my stars, guys, where do I even begin?

I fell in love with Six of Crows when I read it back in July. Yes, I waited a bit to read it but I’d heard nothing but amazing things. It was a hyped book and it was brilliant. Unlike any book I’ve read before, taking me back into the familiar world I left in the Grisha trilogy.

Crooked Kingdom was one of my most anticipated books for September. Knowing Six of Crows was only a duology was hard to swallow but Bardugo’s writing matured greatly from the Grisha trilogy and I was pleased see that.

But this review isn’t about the Grisha trilogy or Six of Crows, it’s about Crooked Kingdom and the fact that I cried. Seriously. Not many books make me cry but this one did.

ARC Review: “Glitter” by Aprilynne Pike

I was provided a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review. Thanks, Random House Children’s and Netgalley!

Breaking Bad meets Marie Antionette? How can you not? Well, granted I’ve never actually watched Breaking Bad but I absolutely love anything about foreign royalty so I thought this would be right up my alley. While I did like the book’s fast pace and the faux royalty, due to the fast pace, certain parts felt very rushed, and the world building was confusing.

Disclaimer: There might be spoilers! I’m sorry. I know I normally don’t do spoilers but in this case, there were some things I wanted to talk about that I couldn’t unless I included a small spoilers disclaimer!
