Book Review: Mask of Shadows

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller My rating: 4 of 5 stars Mask of Shadows has been on my TBR list for a while, but it took being on a vacation in a cabin with no internet and inconsistent, minimal phone service for me to finally pick it up and dig in. Why did IContinue reading “Book Review: Mask of Shadows”

Book Review: Ardulum Third Don

Ardulum: Third Don by J.S. Fields My rating: 5 of 5 stars Review coming soon4.5 Stars Ardulum Third Don was the perfect ending to the trilogy.

Book Review: The Girl in the Tower

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden My rating: 4 of 5 stars A slow start, an epic middle and a bittersweet end describe The Girl in the Tower.

Book Review – Ardulum: Second Don

Ardulum: Second Don by J.S. Fields My rating: 5 of 5 stars The second book was just as good as the first, and I am very thankful I was able to get a free digital ARC.

How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days by Megan O’Russell My rating: 4 of 5 stars If you enjoyed Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon, you will probably enjoy How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days as they both feature a snarky, sort of whiny, self-aware narratorContinue reading “Don’t Judge this By Its 1st Chapter: A Review of How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days”

Book Review: The Dying Game

The Dying Game by Asa Åvdic My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars This one is going to be hard to review without spoilers, but I’ll do the best I can.
