I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Everything about The Final Strife's general description made me excited to read it. In an empire built on a literal blood-based caste system, Sylah is one of the Stolen: a child of the highest caste (Embers, whose blood is red)… Continue reading Review: The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi
I watch a lot of documentary/lost footage-style horror movies. Some are great, some are ridiculous, some are just really poorly done. The Lost Village is a book I'd LOVE to see turned into a movie, because it was deliciously creepy. In 1959, police arrive to the remote Swedish mining village of Silvertjärn to horrific scene.… Continue reading Review: The Lost Village by Camilla Sten
No one makes me laugh to wheezing and tears the way Jenny Lawson (aka The Bloggess) does. No one. I've never hidden that I'm a massive fan of Jenny Lawson's work, and have been since I discovered her blog long enough ago I'd rather not say. Her humor hits me in all the funny bones… Continue reading Review: Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson
So, I saw an ad for this book on social media promising an exploration of murder in Roman society from poisonings to a vat of eels. Obviously, I immediately bought it, because HELLO, death by vat of eels? I'm in. I have to say, Dr. Emma Southon does not disappoint.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is one of the most interesting immortality origin stories I've read in a very long time. If you hate book reviews and don't read any further, I'm giving my conclusion and recommendation right up front this time: go get this book. It'll mess with your mind and you'll think… Continue reading Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. The Pearl is third installment in Tiffany Reisz's "Godwicks" series, a legacy romance series following the Godwick family's love lives beginning with The Red and continued in The Rose. The Pearl picks up six months after Lia's wedding… Continue reading Review: The Pearl, by Tiffany Reisz
Read this as soon as you can. It's wonderful.
Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this novel from the author for review. I did not receive compensation; all opinions are my own. Ok. First, let me say it's come to my attention (via this book) that there's an annoying lack of dystopian-near-future novels out there from non-Christian perspectives. Hang onto that thought, because I'm… Continue reading Review: Knight in Paper Armor, by Nicholas Conley
I received an ARC of this book for review via NetGalley. If you follow along with my reviews and my blog, you'll know I'm an exceptional sleeper. I am happy to nod off mid-sentence or mid-movie whenever necessary, so it's rare for me to pick up something I'm willing to lose sleep over. I lost… Continue reading Review: Sin Eater by Megan Campisi
Yet again, I spent a sleepless night in bed and it's all Tiffany Reisz's fault. You'd think, having read all of the Original Sinners series, that I would learn my lesson and at least start an anthology of short stories set in that universe on a Friday night. Nope: foolishly assuming I could put Winter… Continue reading Review: Winter Tales by Tiffany Reisz
