Review #307

I finished my Disney vacation read. Whisper of the Tide was a 4.5/5 stars. This young adult pirate sequel was just as good as the first. The middle was a bit slower than I wanted but the conclusion gave me what I was looking for. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: I’m not sure howContinue reading “Review #307”

Review #293

I rated this a 3.4/5 stars. I won’t be reading the sequel. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: So, Iris, a 17 year old employee glass blower seems to envy her twin sister, Malina’s skill. But I’m unsure exactly what their magic is, if it’s about flowers blooming or related to art and music andContinue reading “Review #293”

Review #270

I gave this one a 3.9/5 stars which is a little lower than the first book. “For the Throne” is the sequel to “For the Wolf” and I believe it finishes the duology. This is a YA fantasy with a “good vs evil” theme. This one didn’t feel as much of a fairytale retelling asContinue reading “Review #270”

Review #269

I rated this fantasy fairy-tale retelling a 4.4/5 stars. This will hopefully be one I remember details of compared to other novels because the woods are s described in such detail. I started to get frustrated with the repetition of the plot in the 30-60% part of the story. Overall I would highly recommend thisContinue reading “Review #269”

Review #263

I rated this sequel a 3/5 stars. So now that I’m in book two, I’m hoping these aren’t spoilers. I wanted to comment on these at the end of the first but was worried my review would give away secrets. These are my thoughts live. So- I already have issues and questions. It doesn’t feelContinue reading “Review #263”

Review #262

I rated this fantasy a 4.6/5 stars. I loved the circus/ magician performer theme with the dark vibe of the haunted mirrors. I thought the first half was much better than the last Act which is usually the opposite for me so I’m not sure what happened. There is a sequel I’ll be reading nextContinue reading “Review #262”

Review #251

I gave this FF romantasy a 4.9/5 stars. I loved the fairytale mixture of a Cinderella story turned Sleeping Beauty. And the fact that it was all from a villain’s point of view was excellent. Here are my thoughts love while reading: Chapter 1 was pure perfection. Alyce concocted an illegal “ugly” potion for aContinue reading “Review #251”

Review #249

I rated this sequel in Adrienne Young’s duology a 4/5 stars. This epic fantasy was all about different sides fighting in a war. The romance was minimal. I liked that there were two points of view but since they had such little interaction, I’m not sure if it was necessary. The dual POV was moreContinue reading “Review #249”

Review #228

I gave a strong 4.8/5 star rating for Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. If you want a female Captain Jack Sparrow, this is the fantasy pirate book for you. I assumed this was fantasy romance, but the romance wasn’t as strong as a focus as I wanted because of the cliffhanger ending.Continue reading “Review #228”
