Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
review

This book was a wonderful introduction to poetry. It handled serious topics that pertain to other young women and it shows the depths of those problems.
It also dealt with feminism, and as a conservative, I was skeptical. But this book handled feminism in a meaningful way, not annoying or shoved down my throat.
I am so happy I finally had the courage to pick up this book and give it a read.

As great as this book is, I have a few complaints.

I loved the dark and eerie tone of this book! However, it was ruined during some parts because the author constantly had to remind the reader that the book was fantasy. A few random tidbits here, a strange backstory there. It was so close to being the horror book that I need in my life!
No matter my complaint, I am so happy that there was a healthy relationship between stepmother and daughter.

Oh my gosh I forgot to post a review for this book when I finished it on Thursday!
It was a cute little book that really reminded me of Gilmore Girls and Good Witch. There were a few complaints, such as I wish things like the festival and the impact of Sarah's books in people's personal lives was talked about more so we could get a real understanding of it.
All in all, cute, fantastic, and something sweet to pass the time.

Jem through time? Jem and Tessa? Jem and baby?! HECK YES!!

I love Jem and I love the Shadowhunter world, but I did have a few complaints with this book. First, I was expecting the story to be about Jem, not other people where Jem sometimes makes an appearance. I also didnt like that it is more of a connector rather than a stand alone. Much like Queen of Air and Darkness, it left me with more questions than answers.

I love Holly Black and I love the world of Faerie, but I got lost a lot. In the third book, Ironside, I was under the impression that Val would be there too, but she wasn't. I was confused for a majority of Valiant and the drug never came up again after it. But I loved the Lament of Lutie-loo, the new story. It was fabulous and tied together this story to the Folk of the Air!

A new take on history, but it still sucks that it's a mandatory read for my AP World History class. Let's hope I can finish it before school starts!

Another fantastic addition to the Falling Kingdoms world by Morgan Rhodes. this woman can do no wrong! The way she meshes Mythica with the present day modern world is phenomenal. I can't believe this series was not as popular as Falling Kingdoms and called for a cancellation!

This book is so special to me. One of my friend's cousins is the author and the story is based in our local city.
This book is such a uniquely beautiful young adult novel. It brings aspects of Natice American culture and modern day teenagers into the same stage. I am so happy with it!

OH MY GOSH

I can barely breathe right now.

This book is stunning. It is rich, it is dark, it is gory, and it is sexy. Holy crap this was everything I wanted it to be and more. It really exceeded my expectations (even though it took me over a week to finish).

I cannot wait to read the next book.

P.S. JAY KRISTOFF HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO MY POOR INNOCENT HEART?!?!?!

3.5/5 Stars!

This book was so interesting. In between travel and binging Outlander, I was able to invest into a story about the morally gray world of vigilante justice.

There are a few things I wish could change about this book, but it was still so entertaining. As soon as I hit page 250, I could not put it down!

The Bronze Horseman | Paullina Simons

This book is such a wonderful love story. The love between Alexander and Tatiana was absolutely marvelous. There were a few spots in this book that were slow, redundant, or unnecessary. This book is around 800 pages, and some of those pages just kept exploring old topics that were already dealt with. Maybe I'll read the next one, who knows. But for now, the love between Alexander and Tatiana makes my heart sing.

I cannot begin to express how much I love this main character!
First, she kills a man with her shoe and puts it back on, applies her lipstick and goes to gamble.
Next, she wears pearls when she's killing or making deals.
It is such a relief to find a character that takes pride in the ruffles, pearls, and lace.

It was eh. I'm not too thrilled but I don't think it was terrible. I think the main romance would have functioned and made a much better impression as a friendship rather than romantic love. I think it was just put in there for representative purposes. The culture was interesting, and it was so refreshing to see a character WHO WAS NOT THE CHOSEN ONE!

Such a fabulous read! There were a few overused tropes, but I loved the magic system and the Vegas inspired world. And it is so refreshing to see a girl who isn't afraid to be feminine! Enne is the beautiful badass we all know and love! Puts on her lipstick, her heels, and is ready to attack! #aceofshades #amandafoody #goodreads

4/5 stars!

Beautifully rich and wonderful! The romance was gradual and was not the main driving force of the story, which I really appreciate. The Middle Ages is not typically written about in YA literature, so it was so interesting to see it come to life! There were a few slow parts, but I am so happy I finally decided to pick this one off of my TBR pile!

Fantastique!

I am in love with this book! The politics, the characters, the twists and turns of the plot all kept me engaged! I loved how deep the characters were. You instantly form a connection with Camille and Lazare, and Alain is so frustrating you hate seeing his name. The villain is fantastic, but I do wish his motives were explored a little more.

I highly highly recommend this book!

Despite my thoughts about the story, can we just appreciate this beautiful #Owlcrate alternate cover?! It's gorgeous with the dark purple background and the purple sprayed pages!

I really didn't get the hype around this book. So many people said they adored it, but I didn't see it. I was bored up until the last 50 pages and it took me around three weeks to finish all because I was bored.
