• City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

    Hello fellow Bibliophiles, Today I am (finally) reviewing City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Can someone explain to me how I haven’t done a formal review of this yet? I can’t! The first time I read this book back was in 2014. It is one of the books that got me into YA fantasy. I recommend this book to almost everyone because of the writing, plot, and characters. Cassandra Clare just paints such a clear picture through her words in this book! City of Bones tells the story of Clary Fray, a 15-year-old girl who lives with her mom and loves spending time with her best friend Simon Lewis. One…

  • Ruin & Rising by Leigh Bardugo

    Hello Lovelies! Today I am reviewing the final book in the Grishaverse trilogy, Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo! I really enjoyed reading this series in 2019, I think it is the first full series I’ve read this year! This is the conclusion of Alina Mal, and the Darkling’s story so let’s dive in. This post will contain spoilers for the third book! We last left off with Alina, Mal, and their friends taking shelter with the Apparat and his disciples. They are convinced that Alina is a sort of saint but she has lost the use of her powers. The only thing driving Alina at this point in her…

  • A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

    Hello Cursebreakers, Today I am reviewing A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. This book was released on January 29th but I got it the 28th because I saw Brigid Kemmerer on the first stop in her book tour! She was there with one of my favorite authors of all time Jennifer L Armentrout! It was so surreal to get to meet them both!  At that meet up I received my copy of a Curse so Dark and Lonely and got it signed by Kemmerer. A Curse So Dark and Lonely (hereby referred to as ACSDAL cause the full name is a mouthful), is a retelling of Beauty…

  • Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo

    Good Morning Book Lovers, Today I am reviewing Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo! This is the second book in the Grisha Verse trilogy and holy guacamole was it good. There were some slow parts in the book but when the action came, Bardugo doesn’t disappoint. The books begin where Shadow and Bone leave off, with Mal and Alina on the run from the  Darkling. Eventually, however, the Darkling catches up with them and takes them on his quest to find the second amplifier. Alina and Mal then escape this predicament and with the help of their new friend Nikolai (my love), they begin to assemble an army to take…

  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber

    Good morning! Today I am reviewing Caraval by Stephanie Garber. This has been on my TBR for a really long time. So many people told me that I would love this series so I finally read it! Caraval tells the tale of sisters Scarlett and Donatella Dragna (beautiful names BTW). Their wish is to attend Caraval, the magical performance put on by the reclusive Legend. When Scarlett receives two tickets from Legend himself, she and her sister go to the magical island to take part in his games. As soon as they arrive, Tella is taken and Scarlett learns that to win the game, she must save her sister. The…

  • Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo

    Good Morning Bibliophiles! Today I am reviewing another book that has been on my TBR pile forever, Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo. This is the first installment in a trilogy and takes place in the same universe as the Six of Crows books and the newly released book, King of Scars. Shadow & Bone takes place in a country called Ravka. There we meet two orphans, a boy and a girl in an orphanage. A group of magic wielders called Grisha came to test the children and see if either of them are Grisha, but neither of them passed. The story then flashforwards to years later when the girl, Alina,…

  • 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…

  • A Court Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

    Hello Wonderful Humans! Today I am reviewing the second book in the  Court of Thorns and Roses Series, A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas.

After the events under the mountain, Feyre is plagued with nightmares and guilt of what she has to do to survive and save her love Tamlin. There is also the matter of the deal she made to survive with Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court. In exchange for her life, Feyre will spend one week a…
