    The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine

    Good Morning! Today I am reviewing The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine! If you know me, you know I love a good retelling, and I love retellings of Snow White. The reason I enjoy Snow White retellings is that I don’t like the Disney image of Snow White being so helpless and needing a man to save her. I love Once Upon A Time’s version in which Snow White is a badass that can kick ass. The Shadow Queen tells the story of Lorelai Diederich, a princess with magic in her blood who is on the run from our wicked Queen Irina after she killed Lorelai’s father. Our huntsman is…

    Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

    Good Morning All! This week I am reviewing Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! This was the last book I read in 2018 and was honestly one of the most unique/unconventional books I have ever read. For one thing, it isn’t written in the most traditional book sense. Instead of pages of narration, the book is set up a collection of data logs, interviews, and reports. It is called, after all, The Illuminae Files. The story begins right after an attack on an illegal mining plant called Kerenza. The dialogue goes back and forth between interviews with Kady and Ezra, each telling their version of the events and how…

    The Wicked King by Holly Black

    Hello! Today I am reviewing The Wicked King by Holly Black! I reviewed Cruel Prince a few weeks ago and The Wicked King came out on January 8th! I just finished reading it I am in awe. Holly Black has created a world that I never want to stop living in. Her world building skills are off the charts! I think that Jude is the definition of a badass female character and even though most of her decisions are morally questionable, they are in line with her character. She seems cruel but I do believe that most of her choices were made to protect Oak and give him what she never had, a childhood. Cardan has some…

    Everless by Sara Holland

    Good Morning everyone! Today I am reviewing Everless by Sara Holland! Everless tells the story of a place called Sempra, where time is exchanged like currency. Taken from blood, made into stone, and consumed to extend one’s lifespan. The rich reap the benefits of this system, while the poor give their years in taxes. If you have ever seen the movie In Time with Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake, this book has similar qualities. The protagonist of the story, Jules Ember, used to serve with her father at Everless, a palace that housed one of the more wealthier families, the Gerlings. The served until an incident forced them to flee…
