Book Review: A Dream So Dark

I received a copy of A Dream So Dark from NetGalley.  I enjoyed the world, the characters, and the voice in A Dream So Dark as much as I did the first book, A Blade So Black. It wasn’t too hard to fall back into this world, and by the time I was about 30%Continue reading “Book Review: A Dream So Dark”

Book Review: Anya and the Dragon

I took a big hiatus from reviewing books here, really from reading in general, but I’m back! Anya and the Dragon had been sitting in my NetGalley queue for a long time. It is the first novel I have read since August, and it was like getting a nice cold drink of water after beingContinue reading “Book Review: Anya and the Dragon”

Book Review: The Bone Garden

The middle-grade reading spree continues with The Bone Garden. I got a free ARC of this creepy but cute little book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I didn’t think necromancy could be the cute, but alas, it was. In spite of its cuteness, I wasn’t as engaged with The Bone Garden asContinue reading “Book Review: The Bone Garden”

Book Review: Waking Up the Sun

Waking Up the Sun was a cute romance set in a dark yet enchanting forest where two people, the only two people in the forest, gradually fall in love with each other.  My favorite part about this was the mental illness representation. The main characters panic attacks, combine with his description of his cycles ofContinue reading “Book Review: Waking Up the Sun”

Book Review: City of Ghosts

For the next couple of weeks, while I try to finish my own middle grade novel, I’m going to be on a paranormal middle grade reading spree. City of Ghosts is the second title I’ve read since I started and it was so much better than the first book I read off my middle gradeContinue reading “Book Review: City of Ghosts”

Book Review: Once and Future

I’ll keep this review short.  Once and Future is my favorite book I’ve read in 2019. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t  put it down. I read the whole thing in one day and really wish the sequel was already out. Concerning the plot and concept, it reminded me of two of my favorite noContinue reading “Book Review: Once and Future”

Book Review: Empire of Light

I received a free copy of Empire of Light from the author, Alex Harrow, in exchange for a fair and honest review. Empire of Light was an action packed read that was challenging to review without giving away, but I think I’ve manage to come up with something spoiler free. There was no shortage of actionContinue reading “Book Review: Empire of Light”

Book Review: The Winter of the Witch

The worst thing about The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden  is that it means the series is over. I could read another trilogy about Vasya and Morozko even though this book clearly wraps up the conflicts that began in the Bear and the Nightingale.  Now, before I wind up spoiling something, I’ll getContinue reading “Book Review: The Winter of the Witch”
