Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo My rating: 4.75 of 5 stars 4.75 I loved it. It is near perfection. It is rare that I become so invested in a book. It is even more rare that I love a book so much that I keep thinking about the book well after completing it. In…

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi #Diversiverse

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi My rating: 3 of 5 stars You know I was a little skeptical going into this book. I heard about it a year ago, but kept putting it off. Then it was suddenly available in my library’s ebook collection. And it was #diversiverse. It was time that I needed to…

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising by Pierce Brown My rating: 4 of 5 stars Let’s be honest, I’m completely stunned that I haven’t posted this review until now. After all, Golden Son was one of my favorite books of last year. It was odd though. At first I wasn’t quite in love with the book. I had liked…

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater My rating: 4.25 of 5 stars It is time that I finally sit down and confront my complex and intense feelings about this book. Going in to The Raven Boys I had a lot of expectations. So many people had read it and hyped it (which is the reason…

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars The one terrible thing that sometimes comes along with excitement for a novel, is higher than normal expectations. That was definitely the problem that probably made this book not as good for me. Also when you add in the fact that the prequel…

Foundation by Isaac Asimov

Foundation by Isaac Asimov

Foundation by Isaac Asimov My rating: 4 of 5 stars Be warned this book is not for the week of heart. It is dense reading. It is extremely politics heavy and is not the kind of story where you get attached to characters and grow with them. However, if you do stick it out this…

Soulless by Gail Carriger

Soulless by Gail Carriger

Soulless by Gail Carriger My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars Okay, breath. I’ve managed to decompress after reading this novel. It sent me into fits of joy and had me squealing and declaring my love for a new OTP. Was it perfect? Nope. Was it everything I needed and didn’t even realize? Yes. Let me…

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine My rating: 4 of 5 stars I received an uncorrected proof through Goodreads First read program. It will be released on July 7th, 2015. When I received a copy of Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine I was extremely excited. Something thrilled me. It was a book about books…

Proxy by Alex London

Proxy has been on my TBR list for around a year and I’ve finally got to it. The story sounded really interesting even though i didn’t have much of an idea of what it was about. I didn’t realize that this was a the one kind of story. That said, it followed two interesting characters…

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

No Spoilers – Enjoy! There are times you walk into a book terrified by expectations. That happened to me with The Archived. I hadn’t even heard of the series until maybe a week or two ago. It was unknown territory. Sure I had a book (Vicious) by the author (under another name, V.E. Schwab), but…

These Broken Stars

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

For a while, I thought I was going to hate These Broken Stars. It reeled against everything I hoped and for a period made both characters rather annoying. In the end, I completely loved the book. It warped itself from being irritating to being so captivating that I couldn’t stand it. I literally could not put the book down at a certain point and plowed through the final 150 pages.

Tarver and Lilac were intriguing and had a lot of depth to their characters. Tarver more so than Lilac, but they both surprised me with how they plowed forward even with the odds staunchly against them.

These Broken Stars is a romance, but above anything else it is a story of survival. Tarver and Lilac are forced to survive and figure out what exactly they need to do to keep themselves going when the odds continually stack against them. As much as it seems that this story is about space, it’s not. It is however a book a that I really enjoyed, so much so that I can’t wait to dig into the companion story.

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Snow Like Ashes didn’t knock me out of the park, but I did enjoy it. It was an interesting world and was thankful for how things kept happening. The novel kept up a nice pace always making it feel like there was real progress being made in the story. It moved from place to place,…

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo My rating: 4 of 5 stars Shadow and Bone was the easiest read I’ve had in a while. Time past and suddenly I was 50 pages further. I breezed through the entire book, sucking in the story. That said, it wasn’t a complete hook, line, and sinker for me.…

Splintered by A.G. Howard

Splintered by A.G. Howard My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars This is really more like a 3.5 or 3.75. I really enjoyed Splintered. I think this is mainly because rather than being a retelling of the same story, it as actually a new addition to the original story. It twisted the truths from Alice’s story…

Half Bad by Sally Green

Half Bad by Sally Green My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars Okay, let me make it clear this is actually more like a 3.5 maybe even a 3.75 if I could get really into the nitty gritty, but for the sake of goodreads it is going to get a 3. Half Bad is a straight…
