Review: The Dazzling Heights

I really enjoyed The Thousandth Floor last year, it was one of the books that surprised me with how much I got into it. It was like a futuristic Gossip Girl in some ways. This sequel stuck with the similar format that the first book had. Start with a scene...

Review: Wonder Woman - Warbringer

When Leigh Bardugo and Wonder Woman collide, I expect great things. This was the first book release of the four planned DC Icons series featuring Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Batman, and Superman and it set the bar pretty high. I was never into comics growing up so my superhero love is...

Review: They Both Die at the End

Adam Silvera is 3/3 at making me fall apart while reading his books. This one was very unique, each of his books are so different from each other, and I fell in love with this cast of characters. They pulled me right into their story, these two completely different boys...

Review: Fireblood

This sequel picked up not to long after Frostblood left off, with Arcus on the throne and Ruby attempting to navigate the Frostblood kingdom where many, most, people hate her and fear her. With the Minax loose in the kingdom, she was determined to find a way to stop it,...

Review: Warcross

I have never played the kinds of games mentioned in this book, or even anything similar, so I was a little worried going in that it might be hard to lose myself in the story. But it’s Marie Lu and I’m pretty sure she could write any plot and have...

Review: Kiss Me in New York

This was a very fast, very cute read. It’s perfect for curling up with on a cold night, hot chocolate in hand, snuggled up with a blanket, and just letting it warm you up. It took place pretty much within a twenty-four hour period and had our two main characters,...

Review: The Last Namsara

I was really excited to get my hands on this book. It was one of my most anticipated to come out and I will definitely be buying a hardcover when it hits shelves. This book had an interesting world, plenty of interesting characters, and dragons. At first, I wasn’t quite...

Review: Like Water

I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into when I started to read this book. I had an ARC of it and the cover caught my attention but I’d just glimpsed at the synopsis. It seemed interesting so it was the one that ended up getting picked from the...

Review: Batman - Nightwalker

I will admit, Batman is not my favourite hero but I love Marie Lu so I was excited to see how she would write a teenage Batman to be. She’s a fantastic writer and the mythology was well handled. I liked the idea of a reckless teenage Bruce having to...

Review: Queen's Rising

It really didn’t take long for me to fall in love with this book. I really enjoyed the school scenes at the beginning, getting to know Brienna and her fellow students, her sisters, as they all prepared to ‘passion’ in their chosen field(wit, drama, art, music, or knowledge). There was...

Review: Roseblood - AG Howard

I am a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera so a retelling had me really excited. I was really excited to see what spin the author would put on it so I jumped at the chance to read it. I really enjoyed the whole book, the characters, the retelling...

Review: Allegedly - Tiffany D Jackson

I went into this book knowing it was going to be a heavy read and was expecting some twists and turns. The book didn’t shy away from the horrors of what Mary went through after she was accused of killing a baby in her mother’s care, the deaths threats, the...

Review - A Million Worlds with You - Claudia Gray

This conclusion to the Firebird series picked up right after the cliffhanger of the second book and jumped right into the action. This whole series has been a favourite of mine since the first book and the last one was highly anticipated. I couldn’t wait to see how everything would...

Review: By Your Side - Kasie West

Kasie West has definitely become one of my go-to contemporary authors when I need a pick me up book and this book was no exception to that. It was cute, light, addicting to read, and was a lot of fun. It had everything I love from a Kasie West novel...

Review: Silver Stars - Michael Grant

I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series, Front Lines, so I was really excited for this sequel. These books are long but never feel like it. They’re packed with historical events without feeling dry. They tell the story of some great female characters that I would love...
