Failed Promises Leading to Near DNF-ing | Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton

Failed Promises Leading to Near DNF-ing | Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton

For all its promises of magic, revenge, and adventuring, Heart of Thorns was. . . well, frankly, it was boring. I’m super disappointed because it came off as this amazing fantasy and being described as “fiercely feminist” immediately caught my attention, especially after reading Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart. In this world, the women have no power but when the protagonist leave […]

Review – The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Review – Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Review – Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Boy am I glad I read Insurgent right after Divergent, or I’d have been lost.

If you don’t have book one fresh in your mind, you may be a little lost. There is a definite disconnect without […]

Review – Divergent by Veronica Roth

Review – Divergent by Veronica Roth

I’m not sure why I liked this book. I know, not the best way to start out a review but it’s something to think about. Divergent has several negative aspects, most (if not all) that would turn many readers off of the whole series, yet I flew through it. This book isn’t a terribly difficult read and flows fairly well […]
