This book has been on my radar since I read the blurb months and months ago. Signa is twenty years old and at this point in her life, just waiting until the day she can claim her inheritance and be done with all the “caretakers” in her life. They use her for her money and […]
[Skye’s Review:] The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones
It’s hard to beat a good heist–especially when the crew is a ragtag group of misfits. Throw in some Welch mythology, and you have The Drowned Woods! This was the first book I’ve read with Welch mythology, and I loved it! Now, I need all of the Welch mythology books. Someone send me some recommendations. […]
[Diane’s Review]: Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
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.
[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 […]
[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 […]
[Elizabeth’s Review]: See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Did I immediately pre-order a physical copy of this book once I finished it? Yes, I did. I have reviewed Rachel Lynn Solomon’s YA books, which you can find here too, and my reviews tend to follow the same direction when it comes to her books. Just the synopsis of See You Yesterday alone had me vehemently […]
