Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave life to the character of Princess Diana! Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is but this story made her come alive for me. I found it just magnificent the amount of thought that was put into describing the Amazons and how they came to be. The world building was very detailed and I could clearly imagine the island of Themyscira and the warrior women who inhabited it. […]

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

I was beyond excited to get The Empress as an advanced read. I loved, loved, LOVED the series starter, The Diabolic, and couldn’t wait to read its sequel. Not mention that both covers are just downright gorgeous, #coverlove! I will admit I was a bit nervous to read The Empress because in some cases the sequel to an amazing book is not nearly as good. I should not have even […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]

Review: Odd & True by Cat Winters

Odd and True is brilliantly written! I was kept on the edge of my seat always wondering what was going to happen next, if the monsters were real or not. This story gave me the whole “what is hiding around the next corner” feeling. It was tantalizing to my spidey senses. When I chose to read this book, it was because I really wanted a fast and furious monster hunt […]

This story is told in the first person by Victoria, a Cuban-American who dreams of more than her boring every day existence.

Hearts are like Balloons by Candace Robinson

In the beginning of Hearts are like Balloons I was enamored from the starts as I learned about May Faulkner’s early memories of her father. It amazed me that the author was able to in one chapter show the emotional bond that May felt for her Father. Absolutely had my heart already tied up in this book by the first chapter. With her father’s sudden passing May tries to focus on […]

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Author Candace Robinson states that she has a history of “growing up with horror movies, fairytales and real life unsolved mysteries” and you can definitely feel that influence in this story. Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is an amazing story that takes very different genres and weaves them together seamlessly. It was nothing like I had read before, different, and I liked it! When I first started this book, I felt […]

Reckless Treasure by Cecily Wolfe

When I read Reckless Treasure, I had to take some time to really think about my feelings on this book. In western culture, we really dig our happily ever after’s and this story had a HEA but not what you would have expected. I decided that I really appreciated how this story was written and felt that it was a realistically told tale of how life can be for a […]

Black Waters by India R. Adams

When I first began to read this book I understood that it was from Link’s point of view and I was ok with that. What I thought was that his part of the story was going to start from the ending of the previous book Blue Waters. I will say I was a little disappointed that it started before the ending of the previous book. In fact it actually started […]

Terrific Tuesday Follow-Up: The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This book was one of the first Terrific Tuesday books that I wanted to read and I am finally getting to do just that. This novel was nothing like what I was expecting. This story deals with a tough subject, the effects of childhood neglect and abuse. I was not expecting such a thorough and heart touching story on this subject matter and was blown away by how spot-on her […]

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

“I can’t imagine what it is to be dead; it’s a strange idea to me, having known so many ghosts. It’s still a mystery. I don’t quite understand why some people stay and others don’t. I wonder where those who leave have gone. I wonder if the ones that I kill go to the same place.” Theseus Cassio Lowood, goes by the name of Cas and is a loner. He […]
