I still have no idea what a Merciful Crow is. Is it a crow... that bestows mercy upon other people??? THEY NEVER FULLY EXPLAINED and just used it without giving proper context clues and I'm still just... confusion. When I was reading the first ~150 pages of this book, I was HARDCORE not liking it. … Continue reading The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen [blog tour review] good, but only when someone got killed (ft. a giveaway)
I'm melodramatic asf, so when I say that I'm disappointed, I don't mean that the book was bad. I just have... unrealistically high expectations, which is almost always my downfall when reading? So, disclaimer for my entire post: three stars is not a bad rating (why do I feel like I say this every other … Continue reading Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi [review] awesome premise!! alas, I was disappointed
This may not be public knowledge (why would it be?) but I'm a freaking sucker for anonymous romances. By anonymous romances, I mean ones where the main character and love interest communicate in some way but while communicating, don't know who the other one is. Basically, inspired by You've Got Mail or The Shop Around the Corner, … Continue reading Happy Messy Scary Love by Leah Konen [review] It’s a Fluffy Contemporary Summer Anonymous Romance!!
I think I've found my first favorite read of 2019. Well, that's kind of debatable because I'm unsure of whether I would classify The Gilded Wolves as one of my favorites? (It was really good, but I don't know whether or not it was amazing-amazing-aMazInG). This kind of reminded me of Beneath the Citadel x The Girl King, but … Continue reading Descendant of the Crane by Joan He [review] the hype did NOT lie to me, friends. this was amazing
I’m lowkey terrible and don’t pay enough attention while reading. Like, there are so many things in books that I don’t realize and I just have to like,, reread the entire page??? Or sometimes I have to go back like, three pages because I’ve been aimlessly moving my eyes and not interpreting ANYTHING AT ALL. … Continue reading Things I Noticed in My Reread of Nemesis by Brendan Reichs [blog tour]
It's safe to say that I have very mixed feelings about this book. I mean, I'm still not sure of whether I should be rating this three or four stars. Because three stars isn't necessarily a bad rating!! I used to think of it as one, but really... I've decided that three stars are actually … Continue reading Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria [review] I’m Disappointed But This Was Still Good?? Mixed Feelings?
*stares at the low ratings* *stares at my five-star rating* Well. This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and was included in my list of asian-inspired fantasy books. It's about sisters betraying sisters and magic and shapeshifting is involved. Sounds amazing and cool, right? Yeah, except a lot of trusted reviewers … Continue reading The Girl King by Mimi Yu [review] ft. HEAVY COLONIALISM (!!) IN EAST-ASIAN INSPIRED FANTASY (!!!)
I'm not sure how I'm going to encapsulate all of my love for Maura Milan into a review, but... I'm going to attempt it?? Everything about this book was amazing, and I'm unbelievably excited for the sequel (which is called Eclipse the Skies doesn't that literally sound epic) Also, this review is coming at you around three/four … Continue reading Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan [review] hey wow i love this book so much oh my god
I think I've said this 500 times on the internet already but: the only bad part of my experience was seeing the left side get smaller and realizing this book would end. This is the same exact reaction I had with The Forbidden Wish, where I realized... wow i'm in love with this book and i … Continue reading Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody [review] (This was amazing?? One of my favs??)
