Hey Ya'll! This is my spoiler-free review of the Butcher of Anderson Station, novella .5 in the Leviathan Wakes series.

Hey Ya'll! So this will be a very short review today, and that is because this is the first book I have ever DNFd in my entire life. I am so disappointed.

Hey Ya'll! This will be my completely spoiler-free review of A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole. This book was amazingly diverse as well as having a very well developed plot, a really creative setting, and throwing in some hard sci-fi elements without it seeming too much for me. I'll go into more details… Continue reading Book Review: A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole

Hey ya'll! This will be my spoiler-free review on Wicked Enchantment by Anya Bast.

Hey Ya'll! So from my understanding, this is an extension of the Dark-Hunterverse written by her, but I haven't read that yet and in my opinion it really isn't necessary to read those before you read this. I will definitely say it took a minute, maybe up to the ten percent mark, to get used… Continue reading Book Review: Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Hey Ya'll! I read this book over Christmas (on loan from Overdrive) and to be honest, rating it was pretty hard. I hated the writing, honestly. There were nonsensical metaphors all over the place, weird characters (not in the good way), and the entire book was oddly paced for me. The entire book rode a… Continue reading Book Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
