*Note:  This book was provided to  The Book Hookup by the Publisher but that did not in any way influence this review.     Have you ever completely understood why something had to happen yet your heart still fought it? Me too. This book moves the story forward in a couple of different ways and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story…it has character growth, […]

{ARC REVIEW} Breath of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles ..

◊ You can find my 4.5-star review of the first installment, The Promise of Fire, here. ◊ ♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Holy angst adventures await, Batman! This exhilarating sequel sure knew how to keep me on my toes (literally, I was pacing the floors while clutching my kindle quite a few times) or had my heart thudding to a stop in my chest. With heady swoons, epic battles, and other exciting/terrifying confrontations that will leave you […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Art of Wishing (The Art of Wishing #1) by Lindsay Ribar

{ARC REVIEW} The Art of Wishing (The Art of Wishin..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Solid 3-star read! This was cute and entertaining for the most part, but at times I felt like the storyline was battling too hard to walk on one side or the other between a complete contemporary feel or an absolute paranormal one. I think I went into this expecting more of a “fantastical” feeling when it felt more like your typical YA contemporary with a touch of magic. ♥ Review: So here I […]

{ARC REVIEW} Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1) by Kendare Blake

{ARC REVIEW} Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns ..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! As one of my most anticipated reads of the year, Three Dark Crowns was quite an enjoyable read for the most part. After a bit of a slow start, Blake really delivers a novel that will draw you in gradually and then keep you spellbound thereafter. Three Dark Crowns was wickedly enchanting, exposing both the best and worst parts of humanity with a magical twist. It carves a place in your mind and […]

{Review} A Faerie’s Curse (Creepy Hollow #6)..

*Note:  This book was provided to the Book Hookup by the Author but that did not in any way influence this review!!   Perfect ending to a great series!!  Calla’s story was fantastic!! I’ve loved the Creepy Hollow series from the very beginning and when Vi and Ryn’s books were done and I discovered that the next part of the series would feature a new character I was a bit scared.  Well, I’m here to […]

{review} The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

{review} The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

4.5 Totally consuming stars. Lately I haven’t been into high fantasy books at all, or YA for that matter…but this is an Amy Harmon book, my friends. Also, as I skimmed the initial reviews (yes only skimmed because I’m a spoiler-phobe) I saw over and over again that this story held a romance. Right there, that is what pushed me to click and buy. It certainly helped that everyone was saying how powerful and poetic Ms. […]

{REVIEW:} A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas

{REVIEW:} A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Tho..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I’m going to be completely honest, after Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) which has ZERO to even do with this series, I’ve learned to expect the unexpected and throw all caution to the wind when it comes to Sarah J. Maas and her books. So, I went into this novel only expecting stellar writing and a bomb-ass plot, and that is exactly what I got. ♥ Review: This is one of those books […]
