Country Stars, Friendship and My Soul Shattered: Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills

I have told you on numerous occasion how much I love and adore Emma Mills. I think she writes the best YA contemporary out there and her books totally made me fall back in love with the genre. I have read all of her books (there are 4 but still) and I have loved every… Continue reading Country Stars, Friendship and My Soul Shattered: Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills

Court Politics, Awful People and Stress: The Wicked King by Holly Black

“Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” Did anyone doubt I was gonna use that quote? No one did. I read The Cruel Prince last year and really loved it. It was on my end of the year favorites, despite my 4-star rating and somewhat complicated… Continue reading Court Politics, Awful People and Stress: The Wicked King by Holly Black

Seriously, Everyone Needs to Get Themselves a Personality: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

“When people say impossible, they usually mean improbable.”  When I decided to reread Shadow and Bone (full review HERE) and continue on with this series, I did not necessarily expect to fall in love with it.

Unstable AIs, Mixed Media and Space: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

“Am I not merciful?”  As per usual, I am entirely late to the hype train that is Illuminae Files. Everyone was obsessed with this series when it first came out, and naturally, I am only getting started with it once the series is over. I think it was a mix of things that made me… Continue reading Unstable AIs, Mixed Media and Space: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Spaceships, War and Reaching for the Stars: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

"Claim the stars, Spensa." As you may or may not know - Brandon Sanderson is my favorite writer ever. I am constantly amazed by the worlds he creates and moreover, the way he makes his stories intricate and compelling. I have talked on and on about how much I love his books (especially Mistborn) and… Continue reading Spaceships, War and Reaching for the Stars: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
