Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge

Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge

What a crazy unique book! Rosamund Hodge is a must-read author for me. She always writes twisted and imaginative stories! Bright Smoke, Cold Fire is inspired by Romeo and Juliet, but it is definitely its own thing. I would say this is Hodge’s darkest book yet, and I’m totally okay with that. In fact, that’s […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

I fell completely in love with Cruel Beauty, Rosamund Hodge’s debut book, so I knew I needed Crimson Blood in my life. I mean, c’mon, a twist on Little Red Riding Hood and The Girl With No Hands? Yes, please. It’s not even that it’s a twist on fairytales that’s exciting, it’s more the fact […]

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

Beware! There be cursing and spoilers ahead. Want to know what I hate? Hypocrisy. Want to know what else I hate? Double fucking standards. Listen, I got Molly and understood where she was coming from. I actually even liked her. She made a huge mistake, but I also feel she was taken advantage off. The […]

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

It’s over … it’s actually over. The Everneath series has come to an end. This series has been a big bundle of emotions for me. Everneath and Everbound ripped my heart out, and I loved it! So I was expecting Evertrue to take me on another ride aboard the emotional rollercoaster. Hell, I was looking […]

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

When I saw reviews popping up for Ten last year, I knew I had to read it. I was 100% confident that I would love it. Well, I was wrong. I was actually surprised about how much it irritated me. This turned out to be a book that reminded me of those horror movies that […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

When I first saw Cruel Beauty, I thought it sounded interesting and was curious about the Beauty and the Beast connection. Then when it came time to actually read it some months later, I suddenly became very hesitant and started regretting even getting the book. I’ll be honest, I came very close to DNF’ing it […]

Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer

Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer

After reading Marie’s review of Smart Girls Get What They Want, I immediately downloaded it. I have been in the mood for some fun books lately and had a feeling this would fit my craving. And it did! Bea, Gigi, and Neerja are best friends. All three are obsessed with being overachievers and going off […]

Fragments by Dan Wells

Fragments by Dan Wells

After waiting forever (okay, only 4 months), I finally got to read Fragments. I loved Partials so much, so there was no way I was going to not read this book. I love Dan Wells writing, so I was expecting nothing short of awesome. And he definitely brought the awesome! It felt so good to […]

Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Brodi Ashton!! You did it to me again! The woman is killing me with this series. When I finished Everneath last year, I was an emotional mess and needed time to recover. I loved that. But what were the chances that Brodi could get the same kind of reaction from me again with Everbound? Turned […]
