[Emily’s Review]: Belladonna by Adalyn Grace
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 […]
[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.
[Portia’s Review]: Twin Crowns (Twin Crowns #1) by Catherine Doyle and Katherine Webber
This was easily one of the best books I’ve read so far this year. I read a good bit of YA fantasy, and it often starts to feel repetitive and regurgitated. When I first read this synopsis, I was intrigued by the twin drama…. but what really grabbed me was the comparison to The Princess […]
[Asis’ Review] DREAMS LIE BENEATH by Rebecca Ross
I have read every single book Rebecca has written and I’ve loved every new one just as much as the last. My love for Dreams Lie Beneath starts with just that cover. It is a strange choice for me because as a rule I don’t like covers with people on them. Fanart style is acceptable […]
[Caitlyn’s Review:] Blood Scion by Deborah Falaye
Blood Scion is a dark-as-they-come YA fantasy novel filled with detailed and developed world building and a similarly complex heroine, Sloan. Sloan is 15 years old with magic running through her veins. As a Scion, Sloan is a gifted with magic from the Orisha gods and has the power to call forth fire and flame. […]
[Elizabeth’s Review]: It Happened One Midnight by Saranna DeWylde
This book caught my attention because the premise felt fun and whimsical. I always am a sucker for fairytale romances, and Juniper and Tomas felt like they would be an interesting pair. At times, I did feel like the constant ploys to get Tomas and Juniper together felt ridiculous and over the top. However, there […]
