Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo | I Finally Read a Grisha Book!

WOW-WEE! It has literally taken me for-e-ver to finally pick up a Leigh Bardugo book. But I finally did it! I gotta be honest with you, I was never really that interested in the Grishaverse. Strangely, though, I can’t really explain why! These books had never been on my TBR before and I don’t think I’d ever actually read the synopsis of Shadow & Bone before I decided to pick up the box set. I guess I just trusted everyone who was even the littlest bit positive about Leigh and the series? Anyway, here’s my review!

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black | An Interesting New Take on Faeries

If it’s a faerie book, I have to pick it up. I am obsessed and need them all, pretty much. When The Cruel Prince was released, it was everywhere. I couldn’t go on Twitter without seeing something on this book. I was never really interested (although it IS a faerie book! Shame on me!), but then the hype made me do it and when I went to Rotterdam in January, I decided to pick it up! But… Did I read the same book as everyone else?

The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King | Would’ve Been the Perfect End

The Rogue Queen is the third book in the Hundredth Queen series by Emily R. King. It’s a series I didn’t really like at first but grew to like over the course of the second book. When I requested the book on Netgalley, I had no clue whether or not I’d like it at all! I usually don’t request books if I feel about them this way, but I decided to give it a shot and I’m glad I did. I’m not super in love with the story, but it was a nice read anyway. As always, my review is completely spoiler free! Read more

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh | Yay for Necromancers!

Remember when I did a Waiting on Wednesday post on Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh? I was just so excited about this book! I mean, the main character is a necromancer and there’s #OwnVoices bisexual rep. How cool is that?! Way before I even got my Audible credit, I knew what I’d be spending it on. I listened to the audiobook and I loved it a whole lot. Anyway, let’s get on with the review, it feels way overdue already!

Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi | Epic West-African Inspired Fantasy

Woah, woah, woah. Children of Blood & Bone is an absolutely incredible book. Tomi Adeyemi’s debut is a West-African inspired fantasy story and it’s definitely unlike anything I’ve ever read before! I started reading it while I was in a reading slump but once I picked it up, I just couldn’t put it down! I literally used every spare minute I had during the day to read and I’m just so sad we have to wait for the next instalment! The book isn’t officiall out yet, but my review is completely spoiler free!

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert | A Fairytale Mystery

The Hazel Wood was one of my most anticipated releases of the first half of 2018 and I’m so incredibly grateful I got a digital ARC from the publisher through Netgalley! I found reviewing this book really difficult because I loved it so, so much and wanted to do it’s wonderful-ness justice with my review, but then my review was all brain farts and word vomit and zero sense! But finally, many rewrites later, I finally have a spoiler free review to share with you! Read more

Everless by Sara Holland | An Epic Fantasy With Time as Currency

I don’t usually write blog reviews for the audiobooks I listen to, but you guys seemed to be interested in my thoughts on Everless by Sara Holland so I thought I’d share them! Another reason I really wanted to share this review, is because it’s an absolutely amazing book! Honestly, I would spend my precious blood irons to get myself a copy. I already got one in my Audible library but just look at that gorgeous cover! Anyway, I hope my review can convince you to pick up this book. As always, it’s spoiler free!

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

Dark, romantic and unforgettable? Goblins?! Well… The first part of the synopsis of Wintersong really got my attention, but then I read “goblins” and I was like what? But then I started thinking about it (and I kept looking at the beautiful cover) and I actually found myself interested! I was a little scared I wasn’t going to like it, but I actually love it so much in the end!
