The Last Hope (The Raging Ones #2) by Krista and Becca Ritchie

The Last Hope (The Raging Ones #2) by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Maydayyyyyy. One of two things always happen when I finish a really great book. Either I immediately can write an extremely long and gushing review OR I get stuck in the haze that is a major book hangover and have to wait until a later time to actually leave a review. I currently feel like I’m stuck in the later of those two options but I need to just get this review into the world anyway. It’s probably because I just started…

The Raging Ones (The Raging Ones #1) – Krista and Becca Ritchie

We found each other in the winter wood. He threw his arms around me like I’d been his long-lost friend. I hugged him like I was meeting my soul again. There are some moments and some feelings that I can’t even explain. I’m a young man of medicine and science and logic, but the sentiments I wield for Mykal transcend all three. Dang you guys this was good. I mean I don’t know why I ever was worried because I…

Sky Without Stars (System Divine #1) – Jessica Brody, Joanne Rendell

The rich traded goods and extravagances. While the poor traded dreams and ideas. From The Chronicles of the Sisterhood, Volume 12, Chapter 1 When I first came across this book, I wasn’t so much drawn in by the fact that it was a Les Mis retelling. It really was as simple as me seeing “where she guards and protects the last surviving library on the planet” in the synopsis. Little did I know, that was going to be one of the…

Bloodwitch (The Witchlands #3) – Susan Dennard

“From the day she had stabbed Aeduan in the heart, that heart had become hers—and she would not let this be his end.”  Why. Aren’t. More. People. Reading. This. Series?!@?!?! WHY. I’m serious. Sooz’s writing is on an entirely different level than like 80% of the stuff currently out right now in YA fantasy. Yes it’s complex. (When has that ever been a bad thing?) Yes, sometimes you can lose track of what’s happening and where it’s happening. (That’s what…

Sky in the Deep – Adrienne Young

“Does it hurt?” He leaned closer. My stomach dropped, pulling my heart down with it and the pulse in my veins beat unevenly. He was too close to me. I stood, the bench scraping on the stone beneath us. He looked up at me, and I tried to find something to say. But there was too much. It was all buried too deep. I couldn’t reach it. “Everything hurts,” I whispered. Wowwwwwwww. WOW.  I started this in audio ON A WHIM the other day…

Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) – Susan Dennard

“It wasn’t freedom she wanted. It was belief in something—a prize big enough to run for and to fight for and to keep on reaching toward no matter what.”  Why didn’t I read this book YEARS ago?! I am obsessed right now. I went on a Tumblr stalking spree last night and kind of regret it, just like I always do because I’ve already spoiled a few things for myself. I can’t help it. It’s really a problem. So yeah,…

To Best the Boys – Mary Weber

What do you want? I want my mum to live. I want the right to earn an education. I want to be the first female scientist. I want to create my own happiness. I want . . . Okay this was a really interestingly good book. Again, I almost don’t even know how to begin this review???? This is another case of me starting an ARC, being interrupted and reading a million other books, and then finally finishing it. Luckily, I finished…

King of Scars (Nikolai Duology #1) – Leigh Bardugo

“Drüsje,” Birgir hissed. Witch. “I don’t like that word,” Nina said, advancing. “Call me Grisha. Call me zowa. Call me death, if you like.” I literally have no idea how I’m going to review this. There I said it. This book was in my top five for new releases that I was DYING to get my hands on. I actually finished last night and honestly I’m a little torn on what to think. If I’m being completely honest, I’d say that I am…

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) – Holly Black

“Nice things don’t happen in storybooks. Or when they do happen, something bad happens next. Because otherwise the story would be boring, and no one would read it.”  I’ve read a lot of books with a lot of twisty, turny plots at this point in my life, really I have. I usually assume that by now, it’s going to be pretty hard to pull one over on me. But this was not one that I saw coming which is CRAZY…
