In Every Generation by Kendare Blake: Review & Giveaway

In Every Generation by Kendare Blake: Review & Giveaway

Goodreads, Amazon, Kindle,  Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD In Every Generation made my Buffy-obsessed heart so incredibly happy! I’m not even going to try to review the book without taking the original series into account because, for me, that’s impossible. Do I think that non-Buffy fans will enjoy the book on its own merits? Yes. But you’ll have to read other reviews for that perspective because I loved everything about the show. Anyway, this is my perspective as a fan. […]

Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake: Release Day Review & Giveaway!

Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake: Release Day Review & Giveaway!

I have not been this obsessed with a series ever. I’ve certainly never prepared to read a new book in a series so thoroughly: I first reread “The Young Queens” And then read “The Oracle Queen” (I posted a Spoiler-Filled Discussion of both novellas just yesterday.) Then I read recaps of both Three Dark Crowns and One Dark Throne (Click the link if you need a reminder and want to read the recaps on Recaptains) And […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Love, Life, and the List, The Young Queens, Seriously Wicked and The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series

Bite-Sized Reviews of Love, Life, and the List, The Young Queens, Seriously Wicked and The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series

I’ve got four bite-sized reviews of YA books today. Three books and a series! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! This book is SO Kasie West (which is a very good thing, trust me). First off, I pretty much always love stories that involve best friends becoming more—I’m a complete sucker for that trope. But this book is a lot more than the romance. Abby is a pretty typical […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of One Dark Throne, Wonder Woman: Warbringer, Before She Ignites & A Crown of Wishes

I’ve got four bite-sized reviews today—three of these are recent releases and one is a book I’ve been avoiding for a while. Oh, and a “bonus” review of a novella. 🙂  I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! If you’ve already read this book, check out my Spoiler-Filled Discussion of One Dark Throne and let me know your thoughts and predictions about what’s going to happen next! If you’ve […]

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – 5 Star “That Was Awesome” Review & Giveaway

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – 5 Star “That Was Awesome” Review & Giveaway

This book had me hooked from the very start. I was pretty much fascinated by this story of triplets who are all raised as queens – destined to kill each other after they turn sixteen (well, one of them has to kill the other two – the future all balances on which of them succeeds).  The Queens: We first meet Katharine, who is supposed to be a poisoner (which, somewhat ironically, actually means that she’s immune to […]
