  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and William Morrow in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I was so excited to win this ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.  Honestly, I have really good luck with LibraryThing.  Secretly, I think this is because I review everything promptly and publishers tend to appreciate when you review the ARCs, even though it’s optional.  One thing about LibraryThing, though, is that there tends to be fewer authors I recognize so when I saw Gregory […]

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I have come to crave Roshani Chokshi’s lyrical writing, but it’s not just the writing that makes The Silvered Serpents excellent – as a second book, it more than lived up to the expectations of its predecessor. The Gilded Wolves gave us a tantalizing steampunk world with memorable characters and heaps of adventure.  The Silvered Serpents ascends the story to the realm of treasure hunting, secrets, and more than […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. You know those books where you can’t really pinpoint what was special about it, only that you were utterly absorbed by the language and the world and you breathed in the story as though it was as essential as oxygen itself?  That is how I feel about Fable. In this world of critical reading, I can’t say that there was a lot of diversity in Fable.  I don’t think […]

The Mermaid, The Witch, and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Wow. This book was a ride. You guys already know I pick up pirate books like a robin plucking up fat wriggling worms – I can’t get enough.  The grisly reality, the call of the sea, the code of the Brethren… bring it on.  Requesting The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea was an easy call, and I’m so glad I did. At first, I wasn’t […]

Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan

Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. First things first – I think that those who enjoyed Wicked Saints will enjoy Ruthless Gods.  There’s a lot of the same aesthetic and I personally thought the characters were constant.  Unfortunately, I’m coming at this from an angle where Wicked Saints was not quite as good as I wanted it to be, and Ruthless Gods did not improve the situation. There is still a little of the landscaping aesthetics I really liked […]
