Wicked Saints By: Emily A. Duncan

So I really didn’t know what to expect with this book. The reviews were mixed, but it sounded interesting so I gave it a shot. And wowee am I glad I did. This book had all of the feels. At first I thought it was a neat concept, and then I noticed it was very bloody, which doesn’t bother me really. Then it just took off and I was completely hooked in. I adored the characters, completely flawed as they were. There was action, suspense, romance. The gothic atmosphere was amazingly done and the fantasy aspect was very interesting. All in all, I really loved this book and it kept me reading way into the night. Very much looking forward to the sequel.

The Lady Rogue By: Jenn Bennet

This story snagged me by the cover and the title. Then it absolutely snagged me by the description. YA mystery/fantasy that revolves around travel and Dracula in Transylvania? Yes please. This book was pure escapism at its finest. A book you pick up and just enjoy the ride. I loved Theodora and Huck and all of the supporting characters. This book was filled with humor, sadness, and even though it did get a bit dark at times, hope. Also just the right amount of romance. I really enjoyed this book and I’m hoping it’s going to become a series. I will definitely read more from this author.

Crown of Coral and Pearl By: Mara Rutherford

Firstly, the cover is lovely as is the title. I was intrigued right away and then even more so when I read the description. And I am truly glad I read this one! I was hooked immediately by the characters and the setting. The dynamic between the sisters was wonderfully done and you could really feel their love for each other. The setting was beautifully described, the sun, the heat, the saltiness of the ocean. It was all perfect. It doesn’t take long for the story to really pick up, either, and once it did it was impossible to put down. The story takes a darker turn, but it is well worth the read. Nor is an amazing and strong main character and I liked her a lot. The only thing about this book was that I found the ending to be rather abrupt and felt it could have been fleshed out a bit more, but otherwise this was just a great read! Highly recommend.


A Sorcery of Thorns by: Margaret Rogerson

I loved this. I loved this so much. I had previously read An Enchantment of Ravens and enjoyed that greatly, but this book was so much more. A book about sorcery, libraries and magical books. Did I mention magical books? This book is a fantasy and book-lover’s dream. It at once had mystery, fantasy, a lovely romance and just the right amount of suspense. Also Silas. He was amazing. Such a well done character. All the characters were well done, but he truly stood out and was extremely well written I enjoyed this book so much. I am definitely going to buy myself a copy when it is released. I would also buy this for friends as a gift ’cause I feel like anyone that loves books and magic would adore this book as much as I did.

Sorcery of Thorns

Dark Shores by: Danielle L. Jensen

Ive read Danielle Jensen’s Malediction series and I adored it. She has such a way with words and world building. I was very excited to see her releasing another magical series, but this time involving pirates! I was not let down at all. The main character is a wonderful badass and I loved her. She is strong but still human. The book was paced perfectly and the characters were amazing. The villains were extremely detestable and the plot was great. I ripped through this one and am excited for more from this author!

Dark Shores


King of Fools by: Amanda Foody

I really enjoyed Ace of Shades so was eagerly awaiting the sequel. I was not disappointed! The book was as exciting as the first. The character development was great and the story moved along at an excellent pace. I really enjoyed the main characters and their relationships. All in all I would say this book has it all! Definitely looking forward to more books by Amanda Foody.

King of Fools

A Sky Without Stars By: Jessica Brody/Joanne Rendell

This book hooked me right off the bet. This is apparently a sci-fi retelling of Les Miserables, which I will admit I have not read. Either way, this book was interesting all on its own. Great characters that were well fleshed out, the world building was excellent and the action was great. I enjoyed the sci-fi and french elements that really fleshed out the story and the world in which it takes place. Not to mention, the cover looks amazing! I truly do recommend this book if you’re looking for some exciting and adventurous. It is a long book, but you won’t notice that at all!

The Enchanted Sonata By: Heather Dixon Wallwork

Not going to lie, the cover of this book drew me in immediately. Along with the pretty title. This was a sweet and magical book. The characters were lovely and well developed. The world-building was unique and intriguing. This was an enjoyable, fun, and cozy read, with magic and romance. I would recommend this book!

The Enchanted Sonata

The Missing of Claiedelune By: Christelle Dabos

Brilliant! I have to thank the owner of my local bookstore for pointing out the first book in the series, A Winter’s Promise. If not for that, who knows how long it would have taken me to discover this series. I did read some mixed reviews, which to be honest, makes me want to read a book even more. Some people love it, some people hate it. That usually means I’m going to be one of the people that loves it. And did I ever! The pure imagination that went into this book is astounding. I loved every minute I was reading this book. The story has so many twists and turns, mysteries, twists, its awesome. The characters are very well written and I adore the heroine, Ophelia. I liked her immediately. Her apparent mousiness and clumsiness, her actual complete strength of character. She did what needed to be done, no matter what. Love her! So happy I got to read this book. The only downside is that I have to wait forever for the third one to be translated and released here. But I guarantee I will be purchasing it on release day.

A Dangerous Collaboration By: Deanna Raybourn

I’ve been a fan of Deanna Raybourn since her Lady Julia Gray series. She is a fantastic storyteller and this was no disappointment. I devoured this latest Victoria Speedwell mystery, I think it was my favorite so far. The mystery was intriguing, complete with a creepy castle, terrible weather, seances and romance. The chemistry between the characters was brilliantly done. I loved every minute of this book and the only sad thing is, now I have to wait even longer for the next one! I think I will read anything Deanna Raybourn writes and love it.
