(REVIEW) Tithe ~ Holly Black (Modern Faerie Tales #1)

Rating: 3 stars I wasn't originally planning on rating this, since I was reading off the omnibus edition released somewhat recently. But oh my goodness, that version changed so much! I'll go more into that when I review the edition as a whole, but suffice it to say that there was some serious editing that [...]

(REVIEW) Rebel, Pawn, King ~ Morgan Rice (Of Crowns and Glory #4)

Rating: 5 stars So I'm shook but I'll live. Honestly, this series went from junk food to a tasty snack so insidiously that I'm left here reeling. Besides some repetitive set pieces and the usual level of iffy editing, this was kind of amazing. The characters really shone in this. Like, even the ones who [...]

(REVIEW) Mockingjay ~ Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #3)

Rating: 3 stars This final installment had the same issue as Catching Fire; it felt like two separate books stitched together, only with less reason. There was an obnoxiously clear divide between the first and second main story sections. It almost makes me think splitting the movies had some degree of merit, but it did [...]

(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, [...]
