First, a small confession. I blog mostly YA, and I have never read a Jay Kristoff novel before.  I have them all on my TBR.  Nevernight. Illuminae. Stormdancer.  I have always intended to read him, but I just haven’t gotten to that place on my TBR list yet. So, as a small blog with no fangirling history of Jay Kristoff, imagine my surprise when NetGalley emails me with […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Thomas & Mercer in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. When I started reading Obscura, I had mixed feelings about the book.  For starters, I wasn’t crazy about all the time-jumping.  I don’t mind past and present… one or two aren’t bad… but suddenly we’re in different years back and forth, and there’s a couple chapters in different perspectives.  In a thriller, we’ve got enough to handle with just one or two ways of delivering information.

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Wonderblood has one of the darkest and most fascinating world building structures I’ve ever seen in a dystopia.  It’s dark and bloody and creepy.  A religion has sprouted over the idea of the space shuttles and that they will come back to Earth and rescue everyone, and there will be a new day dawning, one of Hope and Mercy.  The setting and the Carnivals and […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Random House in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I think this book could be good or incredibly disappointing, depending up what you’re looking to get out of it.  Speaking for myself, I wanted another Rejected Princesses.  I wanted a book with the stories of powerful women and all their contributions.  That is not quite what I got, so I was understandably disappointed. Here is where The Little Book of Feminist Saints excels: It highlights 100+ women […]
