XBT ARC REVIEW + GIVEAWAY | Spells and Sorcery by S. Usher Evans

XBT ARC REVIEW + GIVEAWAY | ..

Review Thanks you to Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing and S. Usher Evans for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book about magic and to be honest it was really refreshing. This novel was different than a lot of the books I’ve read lately. S. Usher Evans continues to astound me with her characters and her world building. I loved the characters that Evans has created for this novel. For the most part the novel revolves around Lexie, her two sisters, and their aunt. At first I had […]

REVIEW AND REACT | Lost in Wonderland by Nicky Peacock

REVIEW AND REACT | Lost in W..

Thank you to Nicky Peacock and Evernight Teen for providing my with a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Review When I received Nicky Peacock’s email asking me if I would be interested in reviewing her novel in exchange for an honest review I was immediately intrigued. What drew me in was the small selection of highlights from reviews she included. One of them described the novel as “Alice in Wonderland meets Criminal Minds.” Having an interest in both, I decided to go ahead and accept Peacock’s request. Contrary to what readers might think at first glance, this […]

IBT SEPTEMBER: ARC REVIEW AND REACT + GIVEAWAY | Overdrive by Dawn Ius

IBT SEPTEMBER: ARC REVIEW AN..

Review I absolutely love the Fast and Furious franchise. Anytime the movies are on I automatically have to sit and watch them every time. When I found out about this novel I knew immediately that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to review an advanced copy. This novel takes place in primarily in Las Vegas, Nevada and follows the story of a teenage girl named Julia who steals cars to make a living. I didn’t think that the setting was primarily important to the story. I thought that this story could have taken place in any major city in the […]

REVIEW AND REACT | A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

REVIEW AND REACT | A Gatheri..

Quote “Kell would say it was impossible. What a useless word, in a world with magic.” – V.E. Schwab Review It took me way too long to start this novel. I wish I would have started it when I received it back in February. Schwab is a brilliant author. Her novels capture and hold my attention every time I read them. I really liked that, for the most part, the novel focused on Red and White London with a few glimpses of Grey London and just a tiny glance at Black London. Readers got to see more of the culture […]

REVIEW | Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

REVIEW | Queen of Shadows by..

Review “She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph.” – Sarah J. Maas Oh my gosh! I keep thinking that this series can’t get any better than it already is, but Sarah J. Maas continues to prove me wrong. I seriously have no idea why it took me so long to start (and continue) this series. Luckily, I finished this novel just in time to give myself some breathing room before Empire of Storms releases […]

Review | Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Review | Heir of Fire by Sar..

Review “She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.” – Sarah J. Maas In preparation for Empire of Storms, I’ve been doing my best to sprint through the Throne of Glass series this month since I’ve been unintentionally putting it off for a while. Heir of Fire really captured my attention. After the death of Nehemia, Chaol has the bright idea to send Celaena on a mission to Wendlyn for the King of Adarlan that will get her not only out of the castle, but out of Rifthold as well. Readers now know […]

REVIEW | Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

REVIEW | Crown of Midnight b..

Review “But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.” – Sarah J. Maas I finally got around to reading Crown of Midnight 8 months after reading the first novel in the Throne of Glass series. I want to say first off that I am so glad I read The Assassin’s Blade before starting the series. I highly recommend starting off that way. It really helped me to understand who Celaena is and where she comes from. (Plus I got to know who Sam Cortland was. Bonus!) After Throne of […]

REVIEW | Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

REVIEW | Lady Midnight by Ca..

Review “There was beauty in the idea of freedom, but it was an illusion. Every human heart was chained by love.” – Cassandra Clare It took me a long time to start this novel, partly because I had ARCs that had priority and partly because the size of the novel scared me. 698 pages! I’ve only read one other book close to that size. Once I started reading it, though, I was kicking myself for waiting so long. Cassandra Clare continues to amaze me every time she releases a novel, Lady Midnight being her 9th novel, not including her novellas. […]
