Book Review: Atlas Fallen

I went into this having one friend saying it was a five star read and another friend not even able to get more than one hundred pages into it.  I guess it’s an irony since I sit right in the middle. One space station. One throne. And the girl who holds the key. Tesla Petrov,…

Book Review: Venguard

It’s been a few years since I read the Razorlands Trilogy, but whatever gift/curse I have makes it where I remember almost everything from a book (unless it’s for school and I hate it hah).  So, I went into this remembering all the blood, gore, people eating of the trilogy and this one was so…

Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone

I’m so saddened to say that I was bored by this book.  African fantasy?  Sign me up.  But the execution for this wasn’t what the hype led me to believe.  I was expecting an epic fantasy.  What I got was an African TOG. I DNFed this on page 448 of 525. I’ll be explaining as…

In-Depth in Alagaësia: How Big is this Place?

My thoughts on the size of Alagaësia itself goes hand-in-hand with my previous post on Inheritance Cycle Dragon Sizes.  In order to sustain such massive creatures, a world needs to be massive.  Not only that, but before Galbatorix’s insane murder spree, there were many dragons that were the size of Saphira to Glaedr and larger!  For Alagaësia…

Book Review: The Wicked Deep

I went into this book having absolutely no clue what it was about.  A friend had mentioned witches but maybe that was another book.  Either way, I was blind, and I think I enjoyed the book more because of that. Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow… Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced…

Book Review: Ever the Brave

I finished the sequel to Ever the Hunted, and I think I like it more than the first one, but I’m not entirely sure.  This review will give spoilers for Ever the Hunted. After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately,…

Bookish Merch Reviews: OtakuScents

It’s time for another Bookish Merch review!  This time, I’m spotlighting one of my other favorite candle companies of all time: OtakuScents.  If you’re a candle fan, you’ll love their stuff; if you’re an anime nerd, this is the Holy Grail. Label Design I love these labels for the biggest fact that they’re SUPER simplistic. …

Spelling My Name With Books Tag

As I was listening to Hollyheartsbooks’ youtube videos while driving earlier, she did a book tag that I thought would be super fun to do, so I’m doing it!  I will be spelling out my name (Annie) in book titles and then scream about why you need to read that book/series. A: Always and Forever Lara…

Book Review: Jackaby

For the Dragon’s Den Reading Group that I and my friend Evangeline host on Instagram (if interested, message us to ask about July’s signups), we chose Jackaby because it is one of our favorite series of all times as well as a super under-rated book, and everyone needs to read it.  Despite having read this…

May OwlCrate 2018 Thoughts

  Image courtesy of OwlCrate and @bookisglee. I’m not a huge sub box person.  I have tended to dislike or not use half of what I get in the box, so my purchasing a book box is rare and often only for a single thing, such as the book or hopes of merch from a…
