This book is about sisterhood, mixed in with mysterious secrets and, of course, it is brimming with witchcraft. Vivi is moving on from a hectic life with her tarot card reading mom and moving to Savannah to attend Westerly. This is where she discovers a sorority name Kappa and meets the seemingly perfect Scarlett who will wind up becoming a major part of her life. Kappa is not a normal sorority. It is literally a sorority of witches and their sisterhood overflows with magic. I definitely recommend this for a fun and quick read. I had a blast reading about all the awesome spellcraft and the more normal day to day life of an awkward college student. Overall a great read.
This action packed thriller set in a post apocalyptic world follows Dez as he attempts to find someone that was taken from him. Dez is a Latent, meaning he doesn’t have any powers. When the world went crazy, people everywhere developed Supernatural powers turning them into the monsters of myth. This dangerous world is not only horrifying but incredibly interesting in its structure. Little did I know when I began reading this book how much I would love it. I loved Dez’s character and felt like I was part of the story, at times feeling like he was speaking directly to me particularly when he was journaling. Overall The Raven was a really fun read and a perfect fit for this creeptastic time of year!
This was a great collection of horror short stories. All the authors involved are incredibly talented at creating creepy atmospheres that would frighten anyone. From monsters to simply unsettling themes, this collection contains it all. I highly suggest this to anyone looking for a scare!
This really surprised me, not just for what an amazing story this is, but that it is honestly the most enjoyable and fulfilling reading experience I have had in a while. This tale is about Someone that I think we all can relate to. This 17 year old young man feels a heightened sense of pressure from the outside world and has the anxiety that goes along with that. When he begins a new school year as a senior in a new town, he doesn’t just learn new things, but learns a whole new way of living. This story made me laugh out loud and also had some very emotional moments that left me in tears. I also love the author’s unique writing style that fits this story perfectly. I feel like Someone’s Story is a must read for YA fans and, honestly, I don’t think I will be forgetting this incredible tale anytime soon.
I am so excited that I finally got to read this book! I already loved Four’s character, so I’m not going to say this put him in a new light for me. Rather, it did add some extra context that I otherwise would not have known. I love the Divergent series and this is a perfect ending.
This book immediately sucked me in and didn’t let go until the end. A thief steals something that changes everything for not just him but a whole town. It leads him and others into a world of magic that never was imagined. The characters are charismatic and likeable. I loved reading this story and look forward to the sequel!
This book, Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir, lives up to its amazing cover art in every way. Gideon is a Cavalier teamed up with her Necromancer, Harrow, while they try to solve a puzzle and a murder mystery while living with the other 7 houses secluded in the lonely First planet. This book is morbid and witty and dreadfully fun. It is also going to serve as a constant reminder to me that I may not be the weirdest weirdo in the room! Yes, this book is so strange, especially the ending, but it’s weird in a good way… to me at least. I highly recommend this!
What a great start to The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare! The last line of the book, not the Epilogue, made me gasp a little. I couldn’t help it! I just… what? But? Omg! Too much and I cant handle it. This book was steeped in the importance and love of family, also romance for sure, but family more so really. The need to have that older sibling, fatherly or, for some, motherly figure. To have that wholeness as a unit, that togetherness that defines the Blackthorns as family. I thought this tale was beautifully told, exciting, had my heart racing at parts. I highly recommend this for fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare!
The main character of this book is Kilco, a spunky 16 year old female. Her mother is a doctor in the town they live in, a very good doctor who has a very bad attitude. However, when royalty comes calling her to be the leading physician in the kingdom everything changes for the doctor and Kilco. McKenna has created a really interesting world with some very diverse and intriguing types of people and creatures in it. I recommend this to anyone looking for an enjoyable read that comes with a side of quirkiness. I’d like to thank Netgalley for a copy of this ARC!
I’m not going to give away what happened in Nevernight and in this fabulous sequel, Godsgrave. I’m just going to say you can consider my mind blown! Kristoff has a way of tricking me into believing that I know what is going on and then completely flipping the story to what I least expect. This series is amazing, Mia Corvere is Amazing and I highly recommend this!
