(REVIEW) Catching Fire ~ Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #2)

Rating: 4 stars I don’t have too many thoughts on this. I enjoyed it, perhaps more than the first. But I still have issues with Collins’ writing overall and that kind of puts a damper on any emotional connection I attempt to have with this series beyond the implications. I appreciated the Quarter Quell, I […]

(REVIEW) Ark ~ Veronica Roth (Forward Collection #1)

Rating: 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed this, from start to finish! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn’t YA, as I’d been expecting, but instead had a similar narrative voice to Jeff VanderMeer’s Annihilation, in which a female adult scientist is a part of a semi-suicidal mission where strange plants are involved as […]

(REVIEW) Knight, Heir, Prince ~ Morgan Rice (Of Crowns and Glory #3)

Rating: 4 stars Honestly, most of my thoughts from the previous book—Rogue, Warrior, Princess—still remains true with this one. The only things of particular note is that this felt like it was going to be a solid resolution up until the very end, which I suppose is okay, considering there are 8 books in this […]

(REVIEW) A Throne for Sisters ~ Morgan Rice (A Throne for Sisters #1)

Rating: 1 star I buddy read this with Nana and Aless. Oh boy. I thought my expectations were low, but I guess this managed to get even lower than I thought. I know Morgan Rice’s writing is bad. All of her books that I’ve read so far have felt like a very rough first draft […]

(REVIEW) The Hunger Games ~ Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #1)

Rating: 4 stars I’m late to the party, I know. Back in the day, when this was the talk of my middle school, I used to lie that I read it, and since my sister had actually read them and gave me a point-by-point plot summary immediately after reading each book in the series, I […]

(REVIEW) Rogue, Prisoner, Princess ~ Morgan Rice (Of Crowns and Glory #2)

Rating: 4 stars Does this deserve 4 stars? Definitely not! But I’ve been an angry reader the past few months during my slump and I wanna be a happy reader again. If Air Awakens can get 4 stars from me, so can Morgan Rice lol This felt like a huge improvement from the first book, […]

(REVIEW) The Night of Knives ~ V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince Vol. 2)

Rating: 3 stars Better than the first one but also way worse. I liked some aspects but found them to be rushed and undeveloped. The trials themselves ended too quickly for any satisfying resolution and the main conflict came a little out of nowhere. The big plot twist was obvious from the start to anyone […]

(SORT-OF-ARC REVIEW) The Queen of Cursed Things ~ S.M. Gaither

Rating: 4 stars I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. I also only read the ARC until about the 50% mark, at which point I read from the published edition. All quotes are checked against the published […]

(REVIEW) Monstrous Creatures ~ Aaron Mahnke (The World of Lore #1)

Rating: 2 stars I’ve literally been putting this off for over a year. I got this on audio around the end of September of 2018, intending on reading it for Halloween that year, but then life declared that it had other plans and it got swept under the rug. Ultimately, I forgot about it, so […]
