Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This is an extremely difficult review to write because of all the hype surrounding this book and the sensitive topics. For the most part, I enjoyed The Hate U Give. There were things I liked and things I didn’t and there was still some problematic areas. I’m going to try my best to explain the jumble of thoughts swirling in my brain as I finished this book. These are all opinions though and I’ve focused on the book itself, not the issues surrounding it. I liked the ideas of The Hate U Give. I loved that it’s about the Black […]

Book Review: Double Life (Razia #1)

Book Review: Double Life (Razia #1)

This is a tricky review to write because I loved Double Life a lot and I’m trying really hard to not ramble on about things nobody would understand. I wasn’t expecting to love Double Life as much as I did. I was confident that it would be a 4 star read (partially because I’m not much of a sci-fi reader) and was pleasantly surprised when I was easily sucked into the world of bounty hunting and planet excavation. My favourite part of Double Life was easily the whole bounty hunting aspect. I can’t tell you why, but I loved it. It […]

Book Review: Inspire (The Muse #1)

Book Review: Inspire (The Muse #1)

I was gifted this book during a secret santa exchange because I was told I would like it. Well congrats to my secret santa because she wasn’t wrong! I’ve been starting to venture out of young adult books and moving into new adult and adult. Possibly because I’m getting a little older so my reading is doing the same. I really liked that Inspire was a new adult book because it’s just kind of nice to read an older, more mature romance book every once and a while. I was also a really big fan of the characters and if you know […]

ARC Review: The Union (Madion War Trilogy #3)

ARC Review: The Union (Madion War Trilogy #3)

I think that this was a wonderful ending to a series I quickly fell in love with. It’s been so consistent which is fantastic because it has never been disappointing to me. The plot continues to be mostly fast paced and the characters grow steadily throughout the whole series. It was those characters that really made me stick with this series until the end. It’s hard reviewing the end of a series because I don’t want to give anything away. While I love Theo and think she’s a fantastic character, there will always be a spot in my heart for […]

Book Review: A Darkness Absolute (Casey Duncan #2)

Book Review: A Darkness Absolute (Casey Duncan #2)

Kelley Armstrong is not one to disappoint and A Darkness Absolute was no exception. It’s different from a lot of other books she writes because usually they’re focus on paranormal. I think it’s great that she can write books like this one that involve lots of mystery with her usual hint of romance. I love the whole concept of Rockton in A Darkness Absolute (and the previous book of course). It’s a secret town that’s run by everyone in it and (lucky us) we get to see more of how it works in A Darkness Absolute. Everyone has to work to […]

Book Review: Caraval (Caraval #1)

Book Review: Caraval (Caraval #1)

The biggest thing I loved about Caraval was how magical it was. It wasn’t that magic was used so directly but that everything that happened had a little bit of magic in it. The outfits our characters wore were magical, the places they saw were magical, and even some of the other characters they met were full of magic. The magical aspects are what really held this book together for me because otherwise, I don’t think I would have finished.  “Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or performance. It’s the […]
