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 […]

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee – ARC Review

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee – ARC Review

A fun guilty pleasure read with lots of drama and an interesting mystery, The Thousandth Floor had me intrigued from the start! What Fed My Addiction:  The Players: Since there were SO many characters and POV’s in this book, I’ll give you a little rundown of the major players. I really enjoyed almost all of them! Avery and Atlas: These two live on the top floor in the penthouse. Even though Avery is obviously the […]

Wanderlost by Jen Malone – Review

Wanderlost by Jen Malone – Review

Loved this coming of age story about a girl who discovers she’s much more adventurous than she imagined herself to be! With a super adorable love interest and a main character who shows incredible character growth throughout the book, I highly recommend this one!! This is the sort of book that’s all sorts of adorable and just has you constantly either swooning or laughing out loud. Remember when I asked if an author’s bio ever made […]

Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn – Review

Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn – Review

This book was just all sorts of fun, but I have to warn you not to take it too seriously. It’s full of irreverent humor, to be sure. (You don’t often see books that poke fun of characters who have been victims of a grisly murder, but this one does). If you’re okay with that, then this book will suit you just fine! What Fed My Addiction: Wishes gone wild! My favorite part of this book […]

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers – Review

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers – Review

This is one of those times when I’m actually glad I went into the book relatively cold – I had just barely perused some reviews of the book well before I read it and didn’t read the blurb right before I started reading. So, I had NO idea what was going to happen, and I appreciated that. Having said that, in order to review the book, I have to at least mention details that were […]

Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan – Review

Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan – Review

This book didn’t quite fit the mold that I’ve gotten used to with a lot of YA fantasies lately, but that made me appreciate it even more. I loved the mythology that was woven in throughout the book and the fact that the written word was so important to the story was a huge bonus! This book has a great synopsis, so I won’t spend time telling you what it’s about. Instead I’ll jump straight into […]

The White Rose by Amy Ewing – Review

The White Rose by Amy Ewing – Review

The White Rose was the second book in The Lone City series, and it sets Violet on a path toward revolution. It picks up right where the last book left off –  Violet and Ash have just been caught together and Ash has been hauled off to await his execution while Violet has to deal with the Duchess (since she didn’t follow through with Lucien’s plan to fake her death). Well, of course, Lucien does his magic […]

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – ARC Review – ANOTHER All-Time Favorite!!

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – ARC Review – ANOTHER All-Time Favorite!!

Read the synopsis for this book and you can probably imagine why it was so powerful. The fact that it’s inspired by real events is simply chilling. A book like this (when done right) can make people think deeply and transform them. This book was done right. What fed my addiction: Kate’s POV. One aspect of the book that I was surprised about was the POV. We found out pretty early on that Kate didn’t actually see anything – […]
