Roar | Cora Carmack
post image
Pickpick

I've known Cora for a long time. Back before she was Cora but, I've never read any of her books. I remember when she told me she got her first book deal I was super excited for her but I knew I wouldn't read it because it was contemporary. So when I heard she was writing a YA fantasy I was super stoked and oh my gods she wrote an amazing story! I fell hard for Roar and Locke and even Cassius! I am dying to get my hands on the next book!

MarriedtoMrT I've really enjoyed her contemporaries so I'm looking forward to seeing what she can do with fantasy. 3y

Such a beautiful and heartbreaking story! It's not all heartbreaking though there are times of joy and laughter and romance! I can't wait for the second book in this series and I believe I might be crushing on Lothar lol

Omg I'm so happy this is a series! And no there wasn't a cliffhanger I just need more of this world! I am in love with Sage, Alex, Ash, and all the amazing characters! I normally don't love fantasies that don't have magic but I loved this! The world building was amazing and like I said the characters were fantastic! Book 2 now please!!!

Better than book 1 but not enough to get a higher rating. I am a big fan of Gena's but this series isn't my favorite of hers. Ten and get obsession with numbers still drives me crazy. I think I keep reading this series because of Killian. And now that I'm invested I need to see how it ends, so bring on book 3!

I loved The Star Touched Queen and couldn't wait for this companion novel. I didn't think it was possible it would be as good but got damn was it! I could live in this world forever and now I really want to see a companion novel for Aasha!

I wasn't sure how this was going to end. I'll admit to being unhappy about certain things throughout most of the book (even though I know why they had to be that way) but it ended beautifully and I will miss Evelyn's reimagining if Imperial Russia! Oooh maybe we'll get a spin off series!

Gah I don't know why I thought this was the end of the series! But as I read I knew there had be another book coming. It was good but not my favorite of the series. Also there's one thing that made me rate this a 4 instead of a 5 but I can't say because it's spoilery. But I do really want to see how the series ends so I will be reading book 4.

A promising start to what will hopefully be an awesome steampunk fantasy series! I didn't like this as much as her Air Awakens series (I freaking loved that one) but I really liked this! I'm hoping for a smidge more romance in book 2 and I'm happy I don't have to wait too long to read it!

I just binge read all 5 books in this series in a week and its hands down one of the best High Fantasy series I've read in a very long time! If you like books by Maria V. Snyder, Rae Carson, and Leigh Bardugo you NEED to check this series out!!!!

Heartstone | Elle Katharine White

Omg this was absolutely fantastic! Pride & Prejudice is my second favorite Jane Austen novel and to make it into a fantasy with dragons, wyverns, and other creatures was an absolutely brilliant idea! I loved all the characters especially the dragon Akarra! I would love to see what Elle would do with my favorite Austen novel, Persuasion!

I'm not normally a fan of angel books. Hell if I had know this was one I probably wouldn't have read it. But I'm glad I did. It's one of the better angel books I've read. I also loved that it was kinda like National Treasure or The DaVinci Code with angels and demons. It also didn't hurt there was a hot Scottish angel either. I can't wait for book 2!

Such a beautiful, haunting, dark, but romantic story! I love what A.G. fid with the Phantom of The Opera story! It's not a retelling but taken from Phantom and built upon so that it's in the modern world with new characters and it's absolutely spellbinding and gorgeous! You will all fall for Rune and Thorn oh and Diable I adored that damned cat lol

A good conclusion to this series! I never really cared for any of the characters and still don't but I loved the worldbuilding so much that I decided to finish the series! This doesn't hold a candle to her Legend series though. I do look forward to whatever Marie writes next.

BookFreakOut I loved all the Legend books, Young Elites was ok and I never finished Rose Society. 😕 I saw she's doing illustration work for the Illuminae sequel, which is really cool since she's quite the artist as well! 3y

It was really good! Not my favorite of the series but still good! I missed the hell out of Chaol and still hate what Sarah has done to his character. I loved Manon's scenes the best just like I did in QoS. Also they sure don't care that this is a YA series do they? There were some scenes in this book that definitely weren't YA!

BookFreakOut The sex caught me only partially off guard because I just read ACOMAF, but it seemed like a quick escalation for this series. We got no racy details about her and Chaol when they were together, but now people can barely keep their pants on long enough to kill the Valg! 3y

I truly believe that each book in this series just gets better! Kresley has an amazing way of sucking me right back into this world and crushing me, then making me smile and swoon, then absolutely obliterating me with feelings I never thought I'd feel reading a book!

Ok first thing. I don't know why they're marketing this as YA horror it wasn't scary, gruesome in some parts but not scary. It should be considered a YA Historical gothic novel. Ok enough of that! I freaking loved this book Audrey Rose was an amazing, brave, and brilliant heroine and I just adored Thomas *swoons* I will admit I figured out who "Jack" was pretty early on but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book. I can't wait for the next book!

What a wonderful debut novel! I loved this sci-fi/fantasy-ish dystopian novel! Jenny has created an awesomely freaky but super cool world and I loved all the characters! Especially Orion and Dram (swoons)! I'm really hoping this isn't a stand alone I need more!!!!

NautiGirlReads Orion and Dram are my new favorite couple, I mean OMG the feels from them 3y

I loved The Falconer and this was a great follow up! The writing was exquisite and the characters were awesome along with the swoons but I felt a disconnect I think because it took so long for this one to find out! I hope we don't have to wait so long for book 3 or I might not remember to read it.

I'm not normally a huge fan of novellas or companion guides which this book is, both actually. But damn I really loved getting a glimpse at all the Arcana and their attributes as well as small snippets of their lives right before and as the apocalypse happened! I found myself liking characters I didn't really care for in previous books. And just give it up Kresley! Jack is the inactivated card lol also team death for ever!

Forgetting | Sharon Cameron

Every once in a while a book comes out that surprises me with how fantastic it is! The Forgetting is one of those books! I love Sharon's books and knew I wanted to read this but I didn't expect it to be so damned good! This will definitely be on my top 10 favorite books list this year! I loved the world building, the romance, and the very "purge" like aspect to the book! I almost wish it weren't a stand alone! I'd love more Nadia and Gray!
