Seriously. Seriously! This book is a chart topper. No doubt in my mind. I usually have a hard time getting into books with so many perspectives, but this books runs with titles like The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon and Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. It has the most […]
[Emily’s Review]: Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
After a night of magic turns deadly, Iris Gray vows to never let another person learn she’s a witch. It doesn’t matter that the Witches’ Council found her innocent or that her magic was once viewed as a marvel—that night on the lake changed everything.
Now settled in Washington, Iris hides who she really is and vents her frustrations by writing curses she never intends to cast. And while she loves working at the wildlife refuge she runs with her mother, she loathes Pike Alder, the witch-hating aspiring ornithologist who interns with them.
When Pike makes a particularly hurtful comment, Iris concocts a cruel torment for him. But just as she’s about to dispel it, an owl swoops down and steals the curse before flying far away from the refuge. The owl is a powerful amplifier, and if it dies, Iris’s dark spell will be unleashed not only on Pike, but on everyone in the region.
Forced to work together, Iris and Pike trek through the wilderness in search of the bird that could cost Pike his life. But Pike doesn’t know the truth, and as more dangers arise in the woods, Iris must decide how far she’s willing to go to keep her secrets safe.
[Emily’s Review]: Husband Material by Alexis Hall
One (very real) husband
Nowhere near perfect but desperately trying his best
In BOYFRIEND MATERIAL, Luc and Oliver met, pretended to fall in love, fell in love for real, dealt with heartbreak and disappointment and family and friends…and somehow figured out a way to make it work. Now it seems like everyone around them is getting married, and Luc’s feeling the social pressure to propose. But it’ll take more than four weddings, a funeral, and a bowl full of special curry to get these two from I don’t know what I’m doing to I do.
Good thing Oliver is such perfect HUSBAND MATERIAL.
[Skye’s Review:] Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
Rachel Griffin has a gift. Her writing is more than atmospheric and descriptive; her prose transports you into the woods. She captures nature in its rawest, purest form. The setting is a character in itself. I can’t wait for her to write more books! Wild is the Witch is a story about Iris, an 18-year-old […]

[Caitlyn’s Review]: We Made It All Up by Margot Harrison
At several points this year have I pondered a perennial question, which many millennials will likely be familiar with: Am I too old for YA? Here is the thing: I love YA fantasy, but I am seriously beginning to question if I have reached my tolerance for rom-com, thriller-hype, coming-of-age stories. We Made it All […]
[Brittany’s Review]: Twisted Lies by Ana Huang
I must say I am surprised I can even find the words to write this review, that is how speechless I am. This book is the fourth and final book in the Twisted series by Ana Huang, and she couldn’t have wrapped it up better. This book follows characters Christian and Stella. Stella is one […]
[Skye’s Review:] Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
I’m not sure where to start. In fact, I’m not sure how I feel about this book yet. I expected more from Blade Breaker than it delivered. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad book by any means. It’s a good book; it’s just not a great book. It’s not a book that will […]
