Book Review : The Hurricane Wars

Book Review : The Hurricane Wars

It pains me to say this, but I enjoyed The Hurricane Wars more when it was a Reylo (Rey x Kylo Ren from the Star Wars sequel trilogy) fanfiction called Landscape with a Blur of Conquerors. Now, I read the fanfiction many years ago, back when the sequel trilogy was still being released, I think, and I remember thinking that the fanfiction was better researched and written than the actual Star […]

Book Review : Fourth Wing

Book Review : Fourth Wing

I was really afraid I was overhyped for Fourth Wing, as it’s a dragon book, features a female protagonist who is considered physically weak, and a possible enemies-to-lovers romance. Surely it was way too good to be true? Wrong.

Book Review : Snowspelled

Book Review : Snowspelled

After reading and loving Scales and Sensibility, I immediately picked up Snowspelled by the same author–and I was not disappointed. Snowspelled features a loveable and determined heroine, a charming love interest, unique world building, and lots of magic.    As soon as the novel began, I loved its feisty heroine, Cassandra. Cassandra is outspoken, daring, and sharp. She is Elizabeth Bennet if Elizabeth weren’t at all concerned with propriety, had […]

Book Review : The Winter King

Book Review : The Winter King

After looking at a “romantasy” list on Goodreads, I hesitantly picked up The Winter King after reading a free sample. I’ve been frustrated lately with the genre–mainly with the romance portions, where either the male or female character are underdeveloped, or the male lead is completely controlling and possessive–but to my absolute delight, The Winter King suffers from neither of those things! Both the male and female characters are fully […]
