Review #303

I didn’t finish this coming of age story, where family and magic is everything, but highly recommend it for teens instead of middle aged women who like reading young adult (like myself). Some YA crosses over for generations but this one didn’t do that for me. In “Blood like Magic,” sixteen year old witch, Voya,Continue reading “Review #303”

Review #300

I almost stopped at page 30 but am so glad I continued because I rated it a 4.7/5 stars. It’s a standalone enemies to lovers with dual points of view. The author mentioned that this idea came from a gender reversal Beauty and the Beast to see if she could write a boy falling inContinue reading “Review #300”

Review #299

So the finale of this steamy fantasy trilogy is a 4.6/5 stars. The author has done a really good job of the pacing for the believability of going from enemies to “I’d scorch the earth to save you” I’ve decided that this series is like the movie, Inception. The first time you see it/read it,Continue reading “Review #299”

Review #298

I liked the first one better so I rate this sequel a 4.5/5 stars. The third one comes out in a few days. Sometimes the mystery aspect felt too discombobulated and I’m pretty sure a bunch of answers still weren’t given by the end. My favorite part was the seductive steamy scenes, even though …Continue reading “Review #298”

Review #297

This amazing fantasy was a 4.9/5 stars! The dark themes were done so well and I really enjoyed the ride. I can’t wait to start the sequel tonight. Some would categorize this as young adult since she’s 18 but it didn’t feel YA to me. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: The prologue is fromContinue reading “Review #297”

Review #295

I gave this young adult fairy-tale retelling a 3.7/5 stars. Here’s my live thoughts and notes while reading: The mood is set that the dark forest holds monsters that are afraid of fire and years ago her father was attacked by a wolf of sorts. Adele is making the journey on the path for theContinue reading “Review #295”

Review #294

I gave this young adult dark fantasy a 4.5 stars. Here’s my thoughts live while reading: That was the best prologue opener I’ve ever read.  Who poisoned them all? Why? Does the reaper follow Signa everywhere? Why? How has she escaped death so many times? Why can she see spirits? I love the vibe andContinue reading “Review #294”

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 #289

I loved this historical fantasy standalone and rated it a 4.7/5 stars. The reason why it wasn’t 5 stars was mainly because a few chapters in the middle felt a little slower and uneventful. I wanted the emotions to be a bit stronger for some of the epic scenes but sometimes that barrier just happensContinue reading “Review #289”
