Review #359

I’m giving this action packed prequel/novella a 4.2/5 stars. See below for my thoughts: Zelma is on a voyage to request help from a neighboring tribe but they’re attacked by massive flying insects monsters. Her betrothed is on this mission but I’m guessing she will fall for someone else on this adventure.  Rainer is theContinue reading “Review #359”

Review #358

This historical fiction stand-alone received a 4.2/5 stars. Tho mediums weren’t witches but the story still had that witchy vibe that I love. Again, basically all men are evil and yucky. I’m at the point now that if a male is truly positive in any book it’s refreshing. There’s (clean) FF romance as a subplotContinue reading “Review #358”

Review #357

This YA standalone fantasy got a 4.95/5 stars for me. Written in one point of view, the author did an amazing job with setting, prose, character development, love interest, mythical creatures, and more!  Here’s my live thoughts while reading:  The setting and descriptions are vividly painted in both the prologue and first chapter. I canContinue reading “Review #357”

Review #356

4.7/5 stars for this (clean) fantasy romance. It’s written in first person past tense all in Rosalie’s point of view. Of all the beauty and the beast retellings I’ve read recently, this one is my favorite so far. It’s absolute perfection that the heroine is a witch – very similar to my work in progressContinue reading “Review #356”

Review #355

This young adult fantasy was a 4.3/5 stars. It took me a while to figure out the rating because the pacing was really slow for me and it took me a whole week to read which is rare. However I loved the themes and uniqueness so much. What magical Talent would you want the wellContinue reading “Review #355”

Review #354

Beastly Secrets by Laura Burton and Jessie Cal is the type of book to read in one sitting. It’s quick, easy, sweet- a feel good, fast paced retelling. I’d give this a 3.97/5 stars lol. Usually I don’t go to the 2nd decibel but I couldn’t quite go to 4.0 on this one. Here’s myContinue reading “Review #354”

Review #353

I gave this a young adult fantasy a 4.5/5 stars. Here my thoughts while reading: I love the map of Endla, from Spring Ceremony to Harding’s Cottage to the hideout. The prologue about the wolf didn’t make much sense to me so I wasn’t sure what to expect when the story started. Right away weContinue reading “Review #353”

Review #352

I gave this a 4.2 overall but I’m angry. Read the whole review for why and hopefully there’s no spoilers. But there’s no guarantee. The strengths were the banter between the two characters. The weaknesses were it felt like there were some gray areas overall, holes not filled in and lots of stuff unanswered. ButContinue reading “Review #352”

Review #351

This is the 4th Alix E. Harrow book I’ve read and I love how unique the voice is in the Fractured novella series. The author fit so much into this story and I gave it a 5/5 stars Zinnia’s character arc is beautiful and crystal clear. It made me immediately want to preorder the obviousContinue reading “Review #351”

Review #349

I rated this steampunk historical fantasy a 3.5/5 stars. I’m willing to try more of this genre but needed one at a faster pace. Here’s my live comments while reading: Lucy is our main character and she’s on the way to visit her cousin who is newly married into the infamous Blackwell family. Their manorContinue reading “Review #349”
