Did I really do it? Did I really read a YA book PLUS an ARC on time? I really, really did. I’m so proud! This book ripped out all my emotional insides and I give it four stars. Now, back to wallowing in my book hangover.
Review: Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare & Wesley Chu
I have thoughts and feelings and lots of SQUEES for this book. Also, I have some critical comments in here somewhere. Getting back in the swing of this reviewing thing!
Review: Wildcard + Warcross by Marie Lu
If you don’t want to be spoiled for Warcross, never fear! If you don’t want to be spoiled for Wildcard, this may not be the place for you. Fair warning!
Anyways, when I first read Wildcard … I had thoughts. They were not all great. Then, I read Warcross. I FELT SO WRONG. So now I’m apologizing for my own assumptions. Watch to find out why!
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed Review (Spoiler Free)
The Nowhere Girls is an incredible story of many voices fighting back against a covered up sexual assault. An essential read for the #metoo movement.
Unpopular Opinion? Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas Review + Rant
The front half of this is spoiler free! I warn you when it isn’t. That would be the moment that I start ranting. Please chat with me in the comments! I’m really just struggling about this book. You know I love me some SJM, but I’ve never been a Chaol fan and then … that ending!
Review: Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
I did it! I finally did it! Here’s my review of Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I have a loooot of really strong feelings, though it is spoiler free so if you’ve read it and want to chat hit me up in the comments!
Unpopular Opinion? A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas Review + Discussion
Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas Review + Controversy Discussion
I finished this book the day it came out and … I was broken. In shock. All my emotions were SHATTERED. However, I pulled it together enough to create this review. I always wanted to discuss a bit of the controversy that cropped up around Empire of Storms, and why Sarah did what she did (in my opinion). It’s all spoiler free! Either way, I wish that my shock had kept me knocked out until the next book appeared because I don’t know how I’m going to live until the next one!
Betwixt the Books Reviews! The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer
It’s finally here! I’ve been discussing this book since I released my reaction to it as my first audiobook, but the review was not live until TODAY. So, here it is. Michaela and I both listened to the audiobook, and had an opposite reaction that led to a similar rating … somehow. I liked it more than I thought I would, and Michaela liked it less, but we still both rated it about a 3.5. Find out why!
Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
Now that booktubeathon is over, time to get back to some regularly scheduled reviewing. I’ve been waiting to share this one with you guys for a while, because it might be one of the prettiest things I’ve read in 2016. It’s also one of the more confusing things I’ve read in 2016, which is why I call this book “something like poetry,” in good ways and bad ways and great ways. However, I DO suggest this book as something you might want to pick up, so listen for why!
