Amazing Anthology

Original Review: literarychaos.com Anthologies have been rather hit or miss for me. Anthologies are tricky, they have to have some uniting factor, or the stories do not feel cohesive enough to be a collection. As a reader, I have also found that many times one...

I LOVE This book

Original Review: http://www.literarychaos.com/ I was really cautious going into this book. I knew from the synopsis that it had the potential to be a book I really enjoyed. I wanted to try and go in with as little expectations as possible and base my opinion of...

Great Book, Worth the Read

original review at: http://www.literarychaos.com/ In the spirit of honesty, I would never have picked this book up for myself. The synopsis didn't excite me and, for me, there was just no real pull to the book, but I picked it up anyway because I knew a...

Decent Read

I bought this by impulse. Seeing as this book was primarily a cover-buy, I did not have many expectations for this book. I was just hoping for an engrossing read fantasy read that would help me with my reading slump. Unfortunately, while it wasn't a bad book...

A Bit of a Let Down

Original Review: literarychaos.com Rating: 2.5 Stars I really wanted to love this book, unfortunately, I just didn't care for it. I went in beyond excited to read this, the synopsis sounds amazing and I was buddy-reading it with close friends, but...

Great Read, Highly Recommend

Original review: literarychaos.com I LOVE LOVE LOVED this book. It was such a beautifully crafted tale filled with magic, intrigue, romance, and suspense. It really had it all. I enjoyed this book so much, in fact, that I neglected all of my school...

Great Summer Read

Original Review Located: http://www.literarychaos.com/ While this book is definitely outside of my usual reading tastes, I did find myself enjoying the story. Rather than the depressing read I had expected, I found it to be a touching story about dealing with grief and finding one's self...

Unique and Fun Read

Original Review Located: http://www.literarychaos.com/ Being the history buff that I am, I was so excited to read this novel. I kept seeing the book trailer and author video all over my social media, which only made me want to read it more. The videos left me...

Interesting Blend of Dystopia and Fantasy

Original Review Located: http://www.literarychaos.com/ This book was purely an impulse by; I was drawn in by the synopsis for this novel and just decided to buy it. There was something about the idea of a caste system that revolves around language that I found so intriguing....

Interesting Read

Original Review: http://www.literarychaos.com/ This book is one of those dystopia-esque novels that I had a really hard time getting into recently. It was not a terrible read but it also is not a book I would tell someone to run out and go buy either. I...

Great book, if you can look past a cheesy love triangle

Original Review: http://www.literarychaos.com/ The synopsis of this book immediately caught my attention. I am a sucker for the protagonist hiding their true selves to survive trope. The author did a good job at conveying this trope and the circumstances that lead Alexa to hide her true...

Great Story, Worth the Read

Original Review: literarychaos.com As an avid lover of the Edgar Allen Poe's work, I was a little leery about reading this book. I was almost afraid to read it out of fear I would hate it, but in the end, my curiosity won out and...

Interesting Idea, but Not For Me

Review Found: literarychaos.com To be frank, this anthology was not for me. I was so excited by the idea of so many well-known authors coming together to create an anthology based around one central character. I had such high hopes for this book, but in the...

Just Okay

Review Found At: literarychaos.com One of the first things I noticed about this book is that it felt very young. Even for Young Adult fiction it just seemed very juvenile. I wouldn't go as far as to say the novel...
