Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1) – Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1) – Kendare Blake

**DISCLAIMER** Do NOT read the novellas until you finish with this fist book. It will ruin a pretty major thing that you find out at the end of this book. Three dark queens Are born in a glen, Sweet little triplets Will never be friends Three dark sisters All fair to be seen, Two to devour And one to be Queen Okay, why had I been fooled into thinking that this series was only going to be “okay”?!?!? I always seem to…

The Diviners (The Diviners #1)- Libba Bray

The Diviners (The Diviners #1)- Libba Bray

There is no greater power on this earth than story. The fact that it has taken me six years to read this is a complete travesty. I have read, re-read, and loved the Gemma Doyle trilogy so I KNEW that I would love these too whenever I got my lazy self around to reading them. I swear I picked this up a few different times over the years and I don’t even know what happened..maybe the size daunted me at those…

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – Christina Lauren

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – Christina Lauren

The way Emily describes it: when I meet someone I love, I become an octopus and wind my tentacles around their heart, tighter and tighter until they can’t deny they love me just the same. Ahhhhhh I loved this so much. Seriously by now I have come to the conclusion that these two literally cannot write a book that I will not like. They just keep getting better and better and at this very moment I can’t decide which one…

All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill

Time travel isn’t a wonder; it’s an abomination. Wow. I honestly am not sure what I even want to rate this book but I guess I’ll go with a four. Ever since I got hooked on Doctor Who quite a few years back, I have gotten my hands on any and all YA time travel books that I could. Of course they seem to be hit or miss. Basically, if the time travel ~makes sense~ I usually love it. If…

Love and Other Words – Christina Lauren

Love and Other Words – Christina Lauren

It never occurred to me that love could be anything other than all-consuming. Even as a child, I knew I never wanted anything less. WELL, WELL, WELL. Another home run by these lovely ladies. I honestly had no idea that they had come out with another book until a few days ago when I was browsing Amazon, desperate for a book to read. When I came across this and read the synopsis, I knew that this would be the book…

The Darkest Legacy – Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Legacy – Alexandra Bracken

You can get up. You have to get back up. I could get back up. I could do it myself. Again, and again, and again. As long as there was breath in my body, I could get back up. WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?!?!?!?!? Alright, people. It had been a LONG time since a book has made me ~feel~ this way so you better believe this review is going to be a jumbled mess of thoughts and feelings. First off, this was obviously SO…

Furyborn – Claire Legrand

Furyborn – Claire Legrand

The basis for this story is set around a prophecy that has been told about a coming Blood Queen and Sun Queen. We learn right away in a crazy prologue that one of the main characters, Rielle, is the Blood Queen while her daughter will be the Sun Queen. You don’t see this super often in books but starting the book off knowing that Rielle’s fate was going to be, along with still having 100 different questions about how things…

Tempests and Slaughter – Tamora Pierce

Tempests and Slaughter – Tamora Pierce

Ugh I am so ashamed that this book took me so long to read. Tamora Pierce has been my favorite author ever since I picked up Trickster’s Choice many years ago. Of course I was mad to find out that I had basically ruined a lot of things for myself for picking up that duology first but I had no idea at the time! I spend the next few years devouring every other book written by this gem of a lady. Alanna, Kel, Daine,…

Ruby Red – Kerstin Gier

“The first pair Opal and Amber are, Agate sings in B flat, the wolf avatar, A duet-solutio! – with Aquamarine. Mighty Emerald next, with the lovely Citrine. Number Eight is digestio, her stand is Jade fine. E major’s the key of the Black Tourmaline, Sapphire sings in F major, and bright is her sheen. Then almost at once comes Diamond alone, Whose sign of the lion as Leo is known. Projectio! Time flows on, both present and past. Ruby red…

The Giver – Lois Lowry

The Giver – Lois Lowry

One of the most interesting things about The Giver is that for at least half of the book, a reader could classify it as a utopian rather than a dystopian.  Jonas lives in what seems to be a perfect society. Everyone is super polite and has their own individual place in society based on what the Elders think they would be suited for. Couples (who were placed together) have two children, one boy and one girl. When you first start…
