Book Review: House of Furies

House of Furies was a bit of a disappointment in a few ways. I always love a bit of a horror set in old time England even, but it was a hard miss. With a lengthy set-up, there was a somewhat lack of horror until it was a little in your face and not in the way it was expected at all… more danger than spooks and ghosts. I felt the end was rushed to pull things together and the relationship that had been starting to bud between our two main characters was forced at the end. There was a […]

Book Review: Tiny Pretty Things

Tiny Pretty Things I picked up on a whim to meet a random challenge and it was an amazing audiobook. I hear it will be a Netflix show at some point as well. It’s quite a story – about sabotage, ballet, love and more. I absolutely loved the different point of views in the book and the way everything started to unravel as the ballet world is very tense and competitive. I wasn’t sure who to suspect and since you see several perspectives you think you know who could and could not have done certain things. I never did any […]

With the Fire on High Book Review

This book was such an amazing and quick read. The way Emoni talks about food is tantalizing, it honestly makes you hungry just reading it. I saw a lot of myself in this book cause I only had one really good friend in high school and I have always also loved to cook. Not quite as intensely as Emoni but I could definitely understand her passion for it. I loved the way the relationship was taken slow and allowed to develop at a speed that was comfortable for both people involved. Also I loved the moments seeing how Emoni parents […]

Dress codes for Small Towns Book Review

This book did a great job of developing the characters, and making the reader love them just as much as the main character does. The friendship dynamic in this is to die for and I envy Billie so much. I have never really had very close friendships in my life especially not to the extent as the characters in this book and I really enjoyed that while I was reading this book I almost felt a part of their group. I really love the way they get each other, like they will be talking and the other will say something […]

Book Review: The Jewel

Book Review: The Jewel

The Jewel was everything I wanted it to be and more! Violet has known her fate for quite sometime. Destined to become a surrogate for some unknown royal. While the idea of being taken care of sounds great on paper, Violet quickly learns that the Jewel is far more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Let’s talk world-building. The Jewel has it! Hands down, one of the best aspects of The Jewel is its world-building. It is lush, complex, and, in subtle ways, completely terrifying. These girls (the future surrogates) grow up being educated, well fed, trained in the […]

Book View: Sweet Peril

Book View: Sweet Peril

Short and Sweet: Sweet Peril was everything I had hoped it would be and more. After loving Sweet Evil so much, I was afraid that this second installment might have the dreaded middle / second book slump. But oh no, Sweet Peril took the story to a completely different level. Sweet Peril picks up where Sweet Evil ended. Anna is now doing the work for her father, despite her desire not to. However, with so much on the line, Anna knows that one slip might mean the doom of her and her friends. What was great about Sweet Peril was […]
