Book Review: Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King #1)

Book Review: Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King #1)

I had high expectations going into Daughter of the Pirate King and I hadn’t seen many advanced readers so there wasn’t many reviews I could read before starting it. I just thought that any book featuring an epic female pirate would have to be good, right? I wasn’t wrong. While some plot points were a little predictable, I found the whole story to be really interesting. Basically the whole plot is about Alosa being “kidnapped” when she really planned the whole thing so that she could look for this mysterious map piece. Most of Daughter of the Pirate King is […]

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: 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 […]

Blog Tour: The Unwanted (Black Water Tales #2)

Blog Tour: The Unwanted (Black Water Tales #2)

Hello lovelies and welcome to my stop on the The Unwanted blog tour! The Unwated is a young adult horror/supernatural book that I’ve been told is perfect for fall! It’s the second book in this series but it can be read as a standalone which I think is great! When I am writing a book, I always create a Pinterest board for the project to inspire me to create dramatic visuals that can be incorporated into the work. The mood board that I created for The Unwanted is cold and lonely and reflects the emotions that flow through every person, place and thing in […]

Book Review: Dawn Study (Soulfinders #3)

Book Review: Dawn Study (Soulfinders #3)

This is a series that has been very close to my heart for a long time. I’m pretty sad that it’s over and I hope that there will end up being more. This was a great finale for this series. I felt happy and sad all at the same time because we started off our journey with these characters when they were pretty young. Now they’re all grown up and it makes me feel good (yet very sad!). I laughed along with these characters, I teared up a bit, and I possibly had a couple heart attacks, but I made […]

ARC Review: Frostblood (Frostblood Saga #1)

ARC Review: Frostblood (Frostblood Saga #1)

I had high expectations for this book only because a lot of fantasies have been letting me down lately. A lot of them are blending together and aren’t as memorable as I want them to be. This book exceeded all my expectations and I loved every minute of it! Think along the lines of Throne of Glass mixed with Snow Like Ashes only not as disappointing or predictable. Sure some parts I totally saw coming but most of the book was a happy surprise. It’s a series where I’ll be waiting desperately for the next book. My favourite part about […]

Book Review: The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1)

Book Review: The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1)

I hate it when books with great concept end up being disappointing. Thought the writing was gorgeous, the actual plot and characterization was poorly executed. Pretty writing isn’t enough to make up for a bad story sadly or else this would have gotten a higher rating. Honestly I gave this book an extra star just for the writing alone which was probably bad of me. Oh well! I did appreciate all the diversity in this book as well but once again, it couldn’t make up for the bad plot. Side note: there was a super cool talking horse that I […]

Book Review: The Unfailing Light (Katerina #2)

Book Review: The Unfailing Light (Katerina #2)

I think I liked this book more than the first. It was easier to follow (thankfully) and I was starting to remember a few more characters. There’s still a lot going on that I don’t understand and I’m still confused since there’s still a lot of characters but I found myself more entertained by this book. I’m really liking the main characters. In this book especially I wasn’t sure who to trust. Some characters who I thought were doing ok weren’t and the opposite for others. I have serious trust issues after reading this. I am really happy with how […]

Book Review: Nemesis (Nemesis #1)

Book Review: Nemesis (Nemesis #1)

This was a book where I ended up loving it more than I thought I would. I don’t know why I thought I wouldn’t like it, probably because I read some negative reviews, but I was honestly enjoying myself through the whole book. I loved how it played on Egyptian culture but there was a lot of fantasy elements mixed it. I found the whole word to be pretty unique actually. They used the pyramids and the pharaoh wore a big headpiece just like in Egyptian mythology. Then there was these giant serpent beasts that people could ride or use them […]
