Mini Review – The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Mini Review – The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

It’s been a year of beautifully written books that just don’t work for me, and The Beautiful Ones is another on the list. Now I was pretty excited about reading a fantasy romance. It’s not a genre combo I get often (sure, the fantasies I read have romances but not enough to make them romance novels) and I wanted to see all the magic […]

Review – Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

Review – Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

I didn’t think that Kristoff could top Nevernight. That book crushed me last year and I knew. . . I knew. . .  that Godsgrave would either be even MORE soul-crushing or terrible because I didn’t think there could be an in-between. Spoiler Alert: It’s the first one. My first thought after finishing it was that I felt like I watched a ramped-up […]

Review – Only the Dead Know Brooklyn by Chris Vola

Review – Only the Dead Know Brooklyn by Chris Vola

I think I was expecting too much from this book. I’m always on the lookout for new vampire stories because, frankly, YA vampires nearly destroyed my love of urban fantasy and I’ve been slowly trying to recover from that. Only the Dead Know Brooklyn puts a spin on vampires in that they’re undead warriors bound to the region in which they […]

This book, labeled “a fifth-dimension guide to life” turned out to be a fun, almost self-help style collection of lessons that The Twilight Zone can […]

Mini Review – When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Mini Review – When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Magical realism is one of those genres that I want more of but am also leery of because I tend to either really like it or I don’t. When the Moon was Ours falls somewhere in between. Where this book excelled for me was the characters. I’m trying to read more diversely and this book was absolutely beautiful. McLemore has not only […]
