The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood

What a chilling and enthralling dystopian future Margaret Atwood has imagined in this novel! The main character, Offred is a “handmaid”, a woman who has been forced to serve in the household of a high ranking infertile couple as a surrogate. She remembers a “time before”, when she was married with a child. In the time before, women were allowed to have jobs, bank accounts and the ability to read. But, a strange dictatorship has taken over the United States,…

All the Stars and Teeth (All the Stars and Teeth #1) – Adalyn Grace

“The world doesn’t work with only your eyes, Princess. There’s truth in more than what you can see.” This was an impressive first book by this author and a start to what I think is a duology. Her writing was captivating, the magic system seemed a lot different than the typical run-of-the-mill stuff in YA, and the world building was phenomenal and I want more, more, more. In the blurb on Goodreads it mentions how this would be for fans…

A Heart So Fierce and Broken (Cursebreakers #2) – Brigid Kemmerer

A Heart So Fierce and Broken (Cursebreakers #2) – Brigid Kemmerer

4.5 “Must you men make everything about violence?” I say. “Not every problem can be solved by the edge of a sword.” This was SO good. Even after reading my review from A Curse So Dark and Lonely, I can’t say that I remember a whole lot about the first book in this series. I remember liking it but not being completely in love. I also remember wanting to focus more on Rhen since he was the actual love interest/ part of the…

A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) – Brigid Kemmerer

“I am always surprised to discover that when the world seems darkest, there exists the greatest opportunity for light.” Okayyyyy, folks. I’m sitting here trying to figure out how exactly I should approach this review. On one hand, as you can see, I gave it four stars. Obviously that means that I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, it was SUCH a great new take on a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and the writing sucked me…

Starsight (Skyward#2) – Brandon Sanderson

“You know the worst part about being in charge, Spin?” “No, sir.” “Perspective. When you’re young, you can assume that everyone older than you has life figured out. Once you get command yourself, you realize we’re all just the same kids wearing older bodies.” I’m currently sitting here, drinking my coffee, trying to decide how I want this review to start. Even though this was a perfect second novel in a series to me, I just didn’t fall as hard…

To Kill a Kingdom – Alexandra Christo

“You should pay less mind to fairy tales, Elian, or that’s all you’ll become.” When he leaves, I think about if that would be awful, or beautiful. Could it really be such a bad thing, to become a story whispered to children in the dead of night? A song they sing to one another while they play. While the writing in this book wasn’t exactly my cup of tea at first (I felt like there was a lot more telling…

The Girl the Sea Gave Back – Adrienne Young

Ohhhhh boy that ending. Of all of the books to have an open ending WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE THIS ONE?!?! Even though it actually makes perfect sense with how the rest of the book was set up, that doesn’t mean I have to like it!!! Okay, soooo I only recently, and yes, finally, got around to reading Sky in the Deep. I obviously LOVED it and immediately ran to request this ARC. The cover is SO gorgeous and I…

Rage (Stormheart #2) – Cora Carmack

Rage (Stormheart #2) – Cora Carmack

I always appreciate when books start out just about where the previous one in the series left off and that’s exactly what this one did. The group of hunters had made it back to Pavan only to find out that Aurora’s kingdom is now in complete disarray. It’s easy to tell that something just isn’t right and Aurora knows she needs to do whatever necessary to get into that castle. This book, to me, felt quite a bit different than…

Aurora Rising (The Aurora Cycle #1) – Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

You know you’ve read an exceptionally good book when you relish the idea of writing your review as soon as you’re done because you want to impress upon everyone the exact emotions you were feeling as soon as you’ve reached the last page. Guys. I know we’re only a quarter of the way through 2019 but I’ve read some good books so far. This….is one of the best. As much as I loved Finale (Stephanie Garber) this might honestly have been better….
