The Series Got Worse | The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

The Series Got Worse | The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

I’m not really sure what to say about The Rogue Queen. I loved The Hundredth Queen and The Fire Queen was alright, but I feel like I’m enjoying the books in this series less and less as they go on. We’re switching from the competition-style plot now into more fantasy war/epic battle type stuff. Not a bad thing, I’m there for all that, but what […]

Review – The Fire Queen by Emily R. King

Review – The Fire Queen by Emily R. King

Y’all may remember how much I enjoyed The Hundredth Queen earlier this year. So it goes without saying that I had some fairly high expectations for The Fire Queen but my overall impression was. . . well, frankly it was average. I wouldn’t say this book suffered from Sequel Syndrome exactly but it didn’t suck me in like the first one. A […]

Review – The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble

Review – The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble

I could fill a shelf with books that have the potential to be amazing but don’t quite live up to what they claim to offer. This was the case with The Gold-Son, featuring an intriguing cover and a synopsis that promises a tale unlike any I’ve read before. And, indeed, it was certainly original, taking the tale of Leprechauns and breathing […]

Review – The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Review – The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

I heard a lot of great things about this book prior to reading and so I was expecting a bit too much from it, I think.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely enjoyed it and would recommend The Hundredth Queen to any YA fantasy fans out there, but it didn’t completely WOW me like I had expected it to. Kalinda has been […]

Review – Angelfall by Susan Ee

Review – Angelfall by Susan Ee

Angelfall has been on my radar for a while now but it didn’t occur to me to sit down and read it until more recently. Although I think the book is over-hyped, I’ll definitely pick up the sequel. The first thing I noticed was the writing style. Some authors have a distinct voice. Some use lots of flowery language. Some are attempting […]

Review – Girl in the Shadows by Gwenda Bond

Review – Girl in the Shadows by Gwenda Bond

Rule #1 when reading sequels: don’t expect the same as before. I broke this rule when, after finishing Girl on a Wire (which I absolutely loved), I determined that the sequel had to be just as good if not better. Sadly, what I came to realize is that Girl in the Shadows definitely doesn’t live up to the hype from the first […]
