Review: “Incendiary” by Zoraida Cordova

Alright after a couple of soft-ball, considerably “meh” books, I was on the hunt for something interesting.  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I ran into with Incendiary. It is dark and it is brooding and is actually much more involved than you might think for the vague description of “girl steals memories andContinue reading “Review: “Incendiary” by Zoraida Cordova”

Review: “Spin the Dawn” by Elizabeth Lim

I’m not entirely sure what I expected out of this book and I’m even less sure that I got it.  It’s one of those books that I have to think very carefully about what to say because, while I was happy to finish it, it wouldn’t have killed me if I hadn’t. And I thinkContinue reading “Review: “Spin the Dawn” by Elizabeth Lim”

Review: “Where Dreams Descend” by Janella Angeles

It has been a hot minute since I was so thoroughly let down by a book. And I should know better than to get hypnotized by gorgeous covers like I was with this one and Woven in the Moonlight, but how can you turn down this gorgeous cover and the promise of an enigmatic magicContinue reading “Review: “Where Dreams Descend” by Janella Angeles”

Review: “Woven in Moonlight” by Isabel Ibañez

As the Young Adult genre has stepped their game up with their cover art across the board, it takes quite a bit for a cover to so thoroughly encapsulate me that I want the book immediately with no questions asked. Woven In Moonlight’s cover is one of those pesky few. Add in the description onContinue reading “Review: “Woven in Moonlight” by Isabel Ibañez”

Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V.E. Schwab

Everyone has books that you see being discussed to kingdom come and you resist it a little because, how can a book that’s been hyped so much live up to your expectations?  That was A Darker Shade of Magic for me. People have been telling me to read it ever since I joined Bookstagram.  Well,Continue reading “Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V.E. Schwab”

Review: “Hunted by the Sky” by Tanaz Bhathena

“When you’re poor, secrets can very well be the difference between life and death.” What a little gem this book turned out to be! The cover is absolutely gorgeous– I made jokes on my Instagram that the cover model’s eyes were so piercing that I had no idea how the story was even going toContinue reading “Review: “Hunted by the Sky” by Tanaz Bhathena”

Review: “The Fascinators” by Andrew Eliopulos

“If you believe it, you can achieve it. That’s like the number-one rule of magic.” You know, The Fascinators was a really interesting book that for some reason or other, I just didn’t connect to. It wasn’t written too young, which is my complaint about a couple of other YA contemporary reads. The plot hadContinue reading “Review: “The Fascinators” by Andrew Eliopulos”
