A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland: Review, Giveaway and Sutherland’s Top Ten Addictions

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland: Review, Giveaway and Sutherland’s Top Ten Addictions

This book starts out super fun and quirky, and to be honest, that’s all I was expecting out of it, but it turned into something more. In fact, there were parts of this book that were downright heartbreaking. By about halfway through, I realized that there was more than meets the eye with this little gem. It’s not just a book about facing a list of fears (often in humorous and quirky ways). No, this […]

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout: When One Mistake Changes Everything

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout: When One Mistake Changes Everything

I’ve loved many of JLA’s paranormal books, but I never really delved into her contemporaries until last year—not because I didn’t think they’d be good, but just because they didn’t stand out to me and make a huge impression. That all changed with The Problem with Forever. That book not only caught my interest enough to force me to read it, it wrecked me in all the best ways—I LOVED it! So, when If There’s […]

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: What Would You Do With Your Very Last Day?

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: What Would You Do With Your Very Last Day?

The genre for this book is sort of hard to describe, but I guess I’d call it paranormal or magical realism. The setting feels mostly contemporary but then there’s this obviously fantastical element: the fact that people receive a call to warn them on the day they die. This fact has (rightfully) affected society in many ways, so we get a modern-day world with a twist. What Fed My Addiction: The unique concept. I found the […]

Bite-Sized Reviews Audiobook Edition: Midnight Jewel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, and Of Beast and Beauty

Bite-Sized Reviews Audiobook Edition: Midnight Jewel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, and Of Beast and Beauty

I’ve got bite-sized reviews of some of the audiobooks I’ve been listening to lately. I truly love my library (or, technically, most of these came from my mom’s library). If you have access to Axis 360, I highly recommend you check it out—they have a fantastic selection of audiobooks! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! One thing to know going into this book is that it takes place concurrently with […]

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas: A Shockingly Spooky Read! (Review & Giveaway)

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas: A Shockingly Spooky Read! (Review & Giveaway)

This is another one of those books that I can’t say much about because it would be way too easy to give things away. Little Monsters is something between horror and a contemporary thriller—wrapping a small-town ghost story around the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl. Throughout the book, you find yourself wondering if there’s something paranormal going on or if the answer is much simpler than that. Kacey herself wonders that too, and the […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Hello Sunshine, In 27 Days, Love and First Sight, and Oishinbo a la carte: Volume 1

Bite-Sized Reviews of Hello Sunshine, In 27 Days, Love and First Sight, and Oishinbo a la carte: Volume 1

I’ve got four bite-sized reviews today—for four great books! One of them (Love and First Sight) is a review written by my mom (Gay), and then I just added my two cents.  🙂  I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! I was a theatre major in college, so this book called to me. Reading the Leila Howland’s bio, you’ll find that she spent five years acting in New York, […]

Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie: Deceptive, Indeed!

Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie: Deceptive, Indeed!

The title of this book does not lie. There were some surprises in this book that caught me totally off-guard (and a few that I guessed, but that’s par for the course). Many characters in the book are deceived by someone or other, but of course, I can’t tell you much more than that. In fact, this is a tough book to review without giving things away, so I’m going to have to be very […]

Wandering Star by Romina Russell: A Rereadathon Review & Giveaway!

Wandering Star by Romina Russell: A Rereadathon Review & Giveaway!

It’s been a long time since I read the first book in this series (I probably should have actually participated in the rereadathon of the first book, but I just didn’t have time), so it took me a little bit of time to remember what was happening, but once I got myself warmed up, I found that I was enthralled with the worlds of the Zodiac once again! This second book picked up right where […]

The Dragons of Nova (& The Alchemists of Loom) by Elise Kova: Review of the Most Fantastical of Fantasies & a Giveaway

The Dragons of Nova (& The Alchemists of Loom) by Elise Kova: Review of the Most Fantastical of Fantasies & a Giveaway

I binge read the first two books of this series and read almost 900 pages in two days. That could have been painful, but Elise Kova is some sort of fantasy genius and she managed to keep me enthralled the whole time. These books are serious fantasy—I called them the most fantastical of fantasies for a reason—there are complex magical worlds, highly developed societal systems and richly drawn characters. Sometimes books with such elaborate worldbuilding […]

No Good Deed by Kara Connolly: A Fun Time-Travel Take on Robin Hood!

No Good Deed by Kara Connolly: A Fun Time-Travel Take on Robin Hood!

This book takes us on a lighthearted romp through time and lands us straight in Nottingham—where we get to spend time with a certain band of merry men. I hate to overuse the word “fun,” but that’s exactly how I’d describe the book. It twists the tale of Robin Hood quite nicely and never takes itself too seriously. There are lots of elements of the book that I don’t want to give away, so I’m going […]
