Burning Embers – Fiona Jeeves

Have you ever read a book that you start and you immediately think, “hmm, I don’t think I’m going to like this one, but I’m going to stick with it for a bit longer before calling it quits,” then you read a little more and–surprise!–you actually really enjoy it? This was one of those books […]

Untamed – Madeline Dyer

As I stated a few posts back, I’m a big fan of dystopian/post-apocalyptic. But since this is such a popular genre, it’s not always easy to find a book that’s well-written or one that I feel like I can connect with and get into. Thankfully, not only was this book well-written, but it was also […]

Society of Wishes – Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh

This was such a cool book. The authors took the concepts of magic and the afterlife and completely reinvented both to create a thoroughly unique and fascinating world unlike any other I’ve ever read. The book held my attention and made me desperate to learn more about this mysterious society. The main character, Jo, is an […]

The Wasteland – K.A. Knight

I’m a fan of the dystopian/post-apocalyptic genres, so I was immediately intrigued by the blurb for this book. I’m not gonna lie, though; for the first third of this book, I didn’t particularly enjoy it. I honestly didn’t really like the heroine, nor did I feel like I could connect with her in any way. That’s […]

Touched by Death – Ruby Ryan

This was such a good book. I had never read anything by Ruby Ryan prior to this, so I didn’t know what to expect from her writing style, but I knew from the blurb that I had to read this story. I’m a huge fan of mythology–especially Irish and Egyptian–so that was a huge plus […]

Starstruck – S.E. Anderson

This was a unique perspective on the whole “aliens walk among us” trope. I’ve gotta say, it’s definitely one of my favorites for how it’s presented. The aliens aren’t what I expected, especially the hero of the story. The author takes what you have come to expect from this genre and turns it into a […]

Allison’s Adventures in Underland – C. M. Stunich

This is one of the weirdest books I’ve ever read in the best way possible. I enjoyed the heck out of it. I’ve been hearing about this story for a while (considering it’s been out since last year) and just didn’t get to reading it until recently. Honestly, I wish I had read it earlier […]

The Confectioner’s Guild – Claire Luana

Let me just preface this by saying, as a teenager, young adult fantasy was my jam. J. K. Rowling, Holly Black, Stephenie Meyer, Cornelia Funke, Libba Bray (and so on and so forth) … if the book said it was fantasy, I snatched it up and read it–usually in one sitting. Thing is, though; I never […]

Sunshine and Bullets – CoraLee June

You know those books that get under your skin in such a way that you swear you can feel the words etching themselves on your soul? That’s how I feel after reading Sunshine and Bullets. This was one of the most intense stories I’ve had the pleasure of reading. It was devastating and heartbreaking and sexy […]
