Okay. Okay, I didn’t love this book. At a push I’m not entirely sure whether I liked this book or not. It really says something that I came back to review this and I couldn’t remember a thing about what happened. It’s a good thing I’d written out notes after finishing it, or I don’t think I’d have had much to say here. It just wasn’t memorable enough for me to have any strong feelings about this book.
I am absolutely obsessed with this book. I honestly requested it solely because I kept seeing all these neon pictures on my feed and I was intrigued by the cover, but it ended up being an incredible read that I marathoned in one sitting. I listened to the audiobook, but I definitely want to get a physical copy for a reread soon.
I'll be honest, the appeal of this one was the pretty purple-y dragon tail on the cover and the use of 'dragon' in the title. I was hoping for lots and lots of dragons. That's not really what I got. This was a disappointment to me, though it wasn't the worst YA fantasy I've ever read.
I read and reviewed This Poison Heart last year, after loving Cinderella is Dead, so when I saw This Wicked Fate appear on Netgalley I knew I had to have it. This is the final part of the This Poison Heart duology and it's a fitting end to this fantastic fantasy series steeped in magic, …
This was a lot more fun than I was expecting, and the Lovecraftian themes were unexpected but delightfully eerie. If you've ever daydreamed about falling into your favourite books, this one might make you think twice about it - things aren't always what they seem in your favourite worlds.
I KISSED SHARA WHEELER is Casey McQuiston's first YA romance, and I loved it just as much as their adult novels. In classic Casey fashion, this book was so readable that once I got about 50 pages in, there was no stopping me and I read the whole thing in one sitting. Shara and Chloe are absolutely iconic and have redefined rivals-to-lovers in this glorious rom-com.
I honestly requested this one based off the tagline, 'Only a monster can kill a hero'. I'm a sucker for villainous characters, as you can tell from my reviews of All of Us Villains and Beyond the Ruby Veil. This book wasn't what I expected, more good-guy-monster than monster-monster, but I had so much fun reading it. Once I got started I read the whole thing in one day, kept entertained enough to chase through each page, though unfortunately the ending didn't really land with me.
I read The Ravens last year because I have a weakness for witchy stories - and the idea of a witchy story set in a sorority house had my attention. I liked The Ravens, though I did have a few problems with it, and unfortunately I liked The Monarchs slightly less as I was frustrated with a lot of the character arcs.
I insta-buy Karen McManus' books as a matter of course now so when I got my hands on an early review copy of YOU'LL BE THE DEATH OF ME I was so excited. I've never seen Ferris Bueller, but that didn't stop this rocketing up to be my favourite McManus thriller as I read it in one sitting. Rating: 5 stars.
This was my first Riley Sager book and as soon as I finished I put holds on the others at my library because I just had to read more of his clever, thrilling writing and incredible twists. I ended up liking Final Girls even more but this was a fantastic introduction to Riley Sager's writing. Rating: 4 stars.
