(REVIEW) Spirit Bound ~ Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy #5)

Rating: 3 stars 😕 well this was a disappointment. I’ve been largely pleasantly surprised by this series. It’s surpassed all my expectations, going far darker and far more emotionally resonant than I ever thought it would. But this installment kind of just…wasn’t what I wanted? Ultimately, this book felt like two, if not three (and […]

(REVIEW) Blackbird, Vol. 1 ~ Sam Humphries

(REVIEW) Cruel Beauty ~ Rosamund Hodge

Rating: 4 stars (Original rating: 5 stars) Buddy read this reread with Nana and sort of accidentally binged it again ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Honestly, my opinion remains almost entirely the same, except that I found this infinitely more redundant this time, hence the lower star rating. Like, it irked me an irrational amount every time “Hermetic” was said and […]

(REVIEW) When I Arrived at the Castle ~ Emily Carroll

Rating: 2/5 stars I’m really disappointed. Emily Carroll is one of my favorite comic artists and horror authors, but this was just way too confusing. I usually don’t mind twisty stuff, but I’m honestly not sure what this was even about. From start to finish, this relied solely on the self-indulgent aesthetic of ~spooky women~ […]
