Renegades – Marissa Meyer

Renegades – Marissa Meyer

“Listen to me, Nova,” he said, slipping off the chair and crouching in front of her.  “There are many dangerous people in this world.  But there are also many good people.  Brave people.  No matter how bad things get, we have to remember that.  So long as there are heroes in this world, there’s hope that tomorrow might be better.” I’m rating this four stars even though for the most part I felt it was more of a three.  Let…

Tortall: A Spy’s Guide – Tamora Pierce

Tortall: A Spy’s Guide – Tamora Pierce

This is SO GOOD. I can’t even express to you all how excited I was when this showed up on my door step (I put a hold on it but the copy I had purchased showed up before the library’s copy!). Tamora Pierce and all of her books set in Tortall are THE reason why I got into young adult fantasy in the first place. I devoured each and every book and I still treasure them today. I mean, I…

An Enchantment of Ravens – Margaret Rogerson

An Enchantment of Ravens – Margaret Rogerson

Okayyyy I came away with this with a few different thoughts and feelings, all of which were good. I think the first and foremost of these is that Margaret Rogerson can write. Every single page was so beautifully crafted! Seriously, the way she described Isobel’s paintings and the fairy world was so rich and lovely. I had such clear and vivid pictures in my mind of what everything and everyone looked like. Sighhhh. Also the story was good and the…

Roar – Cora Carmack

Roar – Cora Carmack

This was an amazing start to a series that I am already really excited about!! Full, honest review below. Thanks to NetGalley and Tor Teen for giving me a chance to read this eARC! ♥ Okay, on to the goods. When I saw that Cora Carmack had written a YA Fantasy novel I was PUMPED. I’ve read–more like devoured–her Rusk University novels already and was dying for more. The fact that the “more” was a genre that I am especially obsessed…

Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare

Okay. Wow. I don’t even know where to begin honestly. I have been a big fan of the Shadowhunter world from day one. I fell in love with Clary, Jace and the NY crew in The Mortal Instruments and was even more impressed with Tessa, Will, and Jem in The Infernal Devices. While I have slight problems with some of the books, I have read, re-read, and recommended them all over and over again. This book as the start of a new…

A Crown of Wishes – Roshani Chokshi

A Crown of Wishes – Roshani Chokshi

They say the Lord of Treasures hosts a tournament for the very best and the very worst, the dreamers and the broken.  He’ll play a game with you unlike any tournament you have ever played.  You might have to find your true name in a castle of stars, or wrestle your voice from a demon, or sip poison and eat fear… I was lucky enough to have been given a chance by St. Martin’s Griffin to read this before it…

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas

There are a thousand and one things that I could write about this book but I’ll try to keep it this review on the shorter side.  If you’ve read my other review on Throne of Glass, the other series by Sarah J Maas, you should know that I am pretty obsessed with everything that she writes.  There is something so gripping about the characters and worlds she creates and I am usually left reeling after each book.  While this one…

Talon – Julie Kagawa

Talon – Julie Kagawa

It had been awhile since I had read a Julie Kagawa series and in that time I had forgotten how great of a writer she is. She is seriously the master of taking something completely fantastical (dragons, vampires, faeries) and dragging them into a world that we readers are actually familiar with. And somehow..it fits. The Talon series is about dragons. Dragons that can hide in a human skin and who have a secret society that are forever hunted by…

Caraval – Stephanie Garber

Caraval – Stephanie Garber

Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in the world. When I first saw that people were likening this to The Night Circus, I was immediately excited. I absolutely loved everything about that book and figured that if this book was anything like that one, that there was a good change I was going to like it. It honestly…
