Book Review : The Unbroken

Book Review : The Unbroken

I was immediately sucked into The Unbroken, and never wanted to put it down. For me the standouts of the novel were undoubtedly the female characters and their relationships, as well as the representation of LGBT+ characters and a disabled main character. I also was incredibly intrigued by the magical system, which sadly, I felt was a bit vague. My biggest issues with The Unbroken revolved around the main romance […]

Book Review : The House in the Cerulean Sea

Book Review : The House in the Cerulean Sea

I never thought I would utter these words about anything, but I cannot think of a single thing I did not like about The House in the Cerulean Sea. In fact, I voted it for Best Fantasy in the 2020 Goodreads Choice Awards, and I’ve read a lot of great fantasy books this year.

Book Review : Ashes of the Sun

Book Review : Ashes of the Sun

Ashes of the Sun is the first book I’ve read by Django Wexler, though admittedly I own another of his novels and just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet–famous last words. I must say that I really enjoyed Ashes of the Sun. The characters were well developed, there was diversity, creepy villains, and plenty of world-building. I also loved the conflict between brother and sister and their ideals, something […]

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree

The Priory of the Orange Tree is an absolutely phenomenal read. It has everything a reader could want—powerful and diverse female characters, the best LGBTQ romance I have read, EVER, great friendships, interesting religion, pirates, alchemists, world-building, secret organizations, and DRAGONS (both good and evil). Many books nowadays claim to be “the new A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones),” but I have never had the pleasure of […]
