The High Mountain Court (The Five Crowns of Okrith, #1)The High Mountain Court by A.K. Mulford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The High Mountain Court by A.L. Mulford, was an engaging and utterly charming first book to a new series. We see themes of found family, magic systems, beautiful and detailed world building, instant attraction yet slow burn romance with plenty of sexual tension. Our main couple constantly butted heads, but you could clearly see the attraction between each other and how they guarded themselves. Personality-wise, Remy is strong-willed, firey, incredibly stubborn, and cautious which I thought was charming and lovely to read about. There’s so much to unpack in this book. So many things keep happening, danger is always a hairline away, and there are plenty of twists and turns. You got witches, you got fae, you got spice and engaging characters. Highly recommend.

Die for Me (Revenants, #1)Die for Me by Amy Plum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t normally read anything related to zombies and the like. But this series was one I thoroughly enjoyed reading many, many, MANY times. Beautiful cover art and interesting characters. I’m also in love with Vincent… 😀

Torn (Breath of Fate, #1)Torn by Angelina J. Steffort
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Torn by Angelina, is truly an amazing read that will keep readers addicted. Being the first book of the “Breath of Fate Series”, it draws you into the world of heaven and hell and lost souls. Intended for young adults, it’s captivating with its supernatural world and themes of friendships and how it affects each person as they grow. You follow Laney, a young girl with a hidden talent that not even she knows. This ability lets her see the souls of the departed, causing her to feel like a freak and outcast in her society and among her circle.

This story deals with teens trying to figure out their lives as the story takes you deeper and. deeper into the Angel of Death mythology. There’s angst, friendship building, fantasy, and consequences, all wrapped up in this beautiful tale. The storyline writing is smooth and flows nicely as it goes into depth with each character showcased. I highly suggest this read!

Unraveled (Breath of Fate #2)Unraveled by Angelina J. Steffort
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unraveled is the second book in the Breath of Fate series by Angelina J. Steffort. Much like the first book of this series, I was captivated by the writing right from the beginning. This author is incredibly gifted at the art of storytelling and attracting readers with her engaging storylines. Everything is so thoroughly described and explained in a way that’s easy to understand and yet doesn’t feel like ‘simple writing/too easy’. The storyline and characters are well crafted and developed, and they continue to grow in this second book. Honestly, this was a great read and I highly suggest this author and series to people.

Queen of Hearts (Queen of Hearts Saga, #1)Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have very high hopes for this book with how the first few chapters started off with. I thought Dinah, the soon-to-be queen of hearts, was too childlike. But I’m quite happy to say that by the time I was reaching the 5th chapter, she was really growing on me. There was a lot of secrets (darkness) lurking in the background and I was delighted to find the plotline a lot more appealing and interesting than I originally thought. What was just a book I picked up on a whim, is now one of my favorite short reads! I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series and I’m happy I gave this book a chance. Trust me, it’s worth it!

Blood of Wonderland (Queen of Hearts Saga, #2)Blood of Wonderland by Colleen Oakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blood of Wonderland is the second book of the Queen of Hearts trilogy. What a ride this one was! Compared to the first book, this one really stepped up its gain! I really enjoyed how the author is twisting the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland into her own, very unique story. Since it’s a short book, I managed to read the first two books in the series within a day! I’m really looking forward to the next book!

War of the Cards (Queen of Hearts Saga, #3)War of the Cards by Colleen Oakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

War of the Cards, was such a great ending to the trilogy. I felt quite satisfied with how all the loose ends finished. Including the cute appearance of LEWIS, the original author of Alice in Wonderland. Lovely touch.

Of Thorns and Beauty (Twisted Pages #1)Of Thorns and Beauty by Elle Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a huge fan of retellings of classic fairytales. Of Thorns and Beauty, is a re-telling of the story of Beauty and the Beast with the main cast as, Zaina (Belle) and King Einar (Beast). I really loved this retelling because unlike the classic, the ‘beast’ isn’t seen as some monster humanoid but actually a proper gentleman that dotes on his subjects. The ‘Belle’ character is kind of a badass, with a wicked mouth (sass and witty comments for days), and fighting/spy skills that’s quite interesting. Even Zaina’s appearance in nothing like what you would envision a “Belle” to look like with the whole punk vibe going on (nose piercing, ear cuffs.). I really enjoyed this book, and I’m highly looking forward to the next one in the series!

Of Beasts and Vengeance (Twisted Pages, #2)Of Beasts and Vengeance by Elle Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow wow wow wow! This sequel to the Twisted pages was even better than the first book! The story really dives more into the relationship of Zaina and Einar in the best of ways. I really liked how fast-paced it was and the continuing character growth. We also get introduced to new characters (Zaina’s sister), who also kind of resemble other fairytale princesses! I really can’t wait to read Robin and Elle’s other books!

Frost Blood (FrostBlood #1)Frost Blood by Elly Blake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Frost Blood is the first book in the Frost Blood Trilogy by Elly Blake. I personally thought that it had a pretty good opening as it introduced the main characters and the background stories. It kept me engaged and had me wanting to know what came next. I thought the overall story was set up in way that was intriging.

FirebloodFireblood by Elly Blake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fireblood by Elly Blake is the second book in the trilogy. Personally, I thought the first book came off strong whereas this one felt like it was lacking a bit. Where I was originally rooting for the main couple to be together, in this novel, I was starting to loose interest and wished that they had broke off.

Nightblood (Frostblood Saga, #3)Nightblood by Elly Blake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nightblood by Elly Blake is the third and last book of the Frostblood Trilogy. To be honest, I really enjoyed the first book (Frostblood), which is why I was really looking forward to reading the whole trilogy. But I felt like I started to lost a bit of interest from the second book going into this one. I found that the story wasn’t as captivating as the first novel, and I felt the chemistry between the love interests was lacking. I was hoping this one would pick up again with the whole added danger, but I personally didn’t think it did. (Remember this is my own opinion and to others, this might have been one of their favorites so take it as you will). I actually ended up putting this book on hold for almost a year, because it felt more of a chore reading through it.

Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1)Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was just, ‘chef’s kiss’, amazing. The first thing you see is this incredibly beautiful hardcover design on the jacket and an equally loving under jacket. The color scheme, plus the touch of shine, really made this stand out on my shelf. Wicked Saints, was like non-other books I’ve read. The writing style is lyrical, great themes, characters to die for, and a seriously cold atmosphere which made me feel like I was part of the book and not ‘reading’ it. There was a lot going on within this book, and I was here for it!

Intricate Intentions (Intricate, #2)Intricate Intentions by Jennifer Rayes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Alright, I was quite pleased how the second book of this series came out, compared to the first book. There was a lot more stability in terms of contingency and lots of character development. The transition between the first book and this one was smooth in my opinion, considering the kind of cliffhanger we were left with at the end of the first book. I also found that the author really upped her game in writing style with this book compared to the previous one. I thought situations were a lot more well thought out and there were plenty of twists to keep me engaged.

Intricate Obsessions (Intricate, #3)Intricate Obsessions by Jennifer Rayes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ah, this was definitely my favorite book out of the series. There was more development, more interactions between Gaia and Raoul, more drama. There was plenty of action and fast-paced scenes which I also enjoyed reading through. Though I would have loved to see more of Dominique compared to Raoul, I was still relatively alright with the author’s decision. I also wished there were a bit more situations that showcased the character’s inner feelings and thoughts compared to the amount of action, but otherwise I still thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

Intricate Deceptions (Intricate, #1)Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to say, the blurb summary sounded really interesting. I mean, the general storyline was quite interesting and unique: sex traffickers, lost princess, devilishly handsome savior prince, but there was just something missing to make this story truly fantastic. I enjoyed the author’s writing style and how fast-paced events moved, and I thought Gaia, the main lead, was a likable character too. Though, I did find she was too trusting and naive when it came to many things and sometimes it felt like she was a bit bipolar in mood and emotions. I also found the romance questionable….. way too many of the guys were arrogant and mucho like without enough sexual buildup to allow that type of behavior. There were a few other minor things that through me off guard, but overall I did enjoy the storyline. As I said, this has great potential to be amazing and I look forward to reading the second book to see how the story progresses.

The Hollow (The Hollow, #1)The Hollow by Jessica Verday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can’t believe I hadn’t written a review for this one since I’ve read the whole trilogy at least 7 times straight through! This trilogy has easily become one of my comfort reads when I find myself in a reading slump. The characters are so cute together and I liked how there is a hint of a ‘darker’ theme in regards to death lurking in the background. This trilogy is perfect for younger audiences!

The Haunted (The Hollow, #2)The Haunted by Jessica Verday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Haunted is the second book in The Hollow Trilogy by Jessica Verday. Coming from the previous book, the storyline is well on its way in this one and we see a lot more drama and internal struggles that our main female lead experiences to everything. I’ve enjoyed the mythology aspect shared throughout the books and the folklore behind the headless horseman stories!

What a lovely ending to this adorable trilogy! This series has definitely become one of my comfort reads as I’ve completely forgotten how many times I’ve re-read it. It’s just so cute and addicting, perfect for the younger audience!

The Genie Academy Book One (The Supernatural Genie Academy Series 1)The Genie Academy Book One by Karin De Havin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to say, this was quite an interesting book. So much so, that the ‘interesting’ factor is actually what got me through the novel. I have never heard of a regency themed, fantasy novel with GENIES before. Though the concept itself was appealing and new, I found that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the writing style. There was just something about it that seemed to be missing that little extra spark to make this book truly amazing. I felt that it lacked some background story in some cases, and I felt the main character’s reactions to be too ‘forgiving’, or ‘understanding’ or something for when things happened in front of him. It was almost like he didn’t really have much on an opinion on things, since the reaction sentences went too fast.

Though, this is merely my own opinion, I still enjoyed the book to the point that I started the next one as well.

The Genie Academy Book Two (The Supernatural Genie Academy Series 2)The Genie Academy Book Two by Karin De Havin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really wanted to love this, truly I did. Originally I was quite in the new and freshness of the overall storyline and themes, but I felt like there was a lot of circling when it came to the main character’s thought process. Like he would ‘fear or worry’ about something in one sentence, then literally the next he was perfectly fine and understanding. Then there was the whole matter of his questionable crush and how there were random moments he would think about her wrist, or her smile in the middle of something else happening… don’t get me wrong, I LOOOOVE romance and here for it, but it felt like there was a disconnect with this romance, and I didn’t understand the chemistry between them when there were short moments…

Lore & Lust (Lore & Lust #1)Lore & Lust by Karla Nikole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was…. wow. Lore and Lust is so completely original, that it had me hooked from the first chapter. I loved the dynamic between the two main characters and their growing attraction/ relationship was to die for! Honestly, the world building was also stellar as well, and yet, simple at the same time. I enjoyed how the author spent just enough time to describe scenery and background without it taking away from the main story.

Lore and Lust: Lore and Lust Series Book TwoLore and Lust: Lore and Lust Series Book Two by Karla Nikole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something just so beautiful about Karla Nikole’s writing. I first fell in love with this series because of the uniquely designed characters and the loving dynamics between them. Who doesn’t find slow-burn yet love at first sight, such high attentiveness to the other, healings through love, cute adorable moments all wrapped up in a loving romance with hints of danger and trauma? I know I do, and this book gave me all that and more. Such a heartwarming read and I’m so happy to be back in Nino and Haruka’s world! Can’t wait for the third book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was truly a pleasure to read! (Thanks for letting me be one of your ARC readers!). This author’s writing is beautifully crafted with detailed imagery and so intricately that you really want to take your time to read so you can capture everything. Seriously, I would highly suggest this book to anyone with how wonderfully lyrical the writing style!

House of Darakai (The Haidren Legacy, #2)House of Darakai by K.L. Kolarich
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

House of Darakai is the second installment from the Haidren Legacy series by K.L. Kolarich. A year ago, I fell deeply in love with the first book so I was incredibly excited for this one. This was AMAZING! Truly! Not only is the writing style so uniquely detailed, but it creates such a vivid scene in your head like a movie. You can clearly see how each character was thoroughly thought out and developed by this author, and they each have completely different personalities which add to the overall depth of the story. Don’t believe me? Zeaethan alone went through such a large character development…. Honestly, you need to pick up this series if you like epic fantasy and creative characters!

Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #2)Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I want to start off and saying that I had mixed feelings about Siege and Storm. I don’t know if it’s because I took a long wait period in between book one and this, but I felt a bit disappointed. I also want to start off by saying that I LOVED Shadow and Bone (the book) and thought that the netflicks rendition was stellar. So, I had high hopes for this one since the story is picking up from the first book. But I felt that Alina was a bit whiny or childish at moments, and to be honest, I didn’t feel much chemistry between her and Mal through half of the book. Yes, the storyline is interesting, but I also felt that there wasn’t as much action, adventure, or something. I don’t know. Usually, I gobble stories like this one up within a day, but instead, it took me two weeks to finish…. which is long for me.

Night World, No. 1 (Night World, #1-3)Night World, No. 1 by L.J. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is something so charming about LJ Smith’s books. I originally started the Night World series many years ago, in my childhood years. Sure the stories aren’t the longest or as detailed as books I’m used to today, but as a child reading them, they were like gold to me. I love meeting each new character and seeing their romance grow with their soulmate. I’m pretty sure it was this series that made me into the romantic I am today. Night World series is perfect for really young readers.

Night World, No. 2 (Night World, #4-6)Night World, No. 2 by L.J. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Night World Series books #4-6 by LJ Smith in my opinion, is where things really start to pick up. The first three books were a great introduction to the world building and a few characters, but there’s something so heartfelt and adorable about books 4-6 that just hit differently. I feel like lives are more put onto the line, and the danger levels rise compared to other books. There’s more ‘fight for you love’ type of themes, which I thoroughly enjoy. Much like my review for the first three books of the Night World Series, this is perfect for young/ early readers. Writing style is easy to understand, it’s clean, and teaches about love and fighting for it.

Night World, No. 3 (Night World, #7-9)Night World, No. 3 by L.J. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Black Dawn, the 8th book in the Night World series is quite frankly one of my favourites. In these three books, we are really starting to see more world building and problems arising from an upcoming war. Though I’ve read this series many times throughout my childhood and even into my adult years as a comfort read, it still holds charm. I am quite sad though that this series doesn’t look like it will ever finish. I was really hoping to know how everything ends.

A Court of Honey and Ash (Honey and Ice Trilogy, #1)A Court of Honey and Ash by Shannon Mayer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There were pros and cons to A Court of Honey and Ash by Shannon Mayer. First, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the writing style when it came to conversations or the main character describing others. Sometimes it felt a bit childish, using words like ‘bad boy’ instead of thoroughly describing how he was a bad boy. It felt like there was a lack of depth in some areas. But, I did enjoy the storyline and thought it to be quite engaging so I was excited to read the second book. I liked the attempted mashup of a fantasy world with contemporary 21st-century themes.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A throne of Feathers and Bone, the second book of the Honey and Ice Trilogy, felt like an upgrade from the first book. I felt the writing style was a bit more fast-paced, which I enjoyed and felt more mature. Kallick, our female lead, is getting strong both mentally and physically as her powers are settling more. I’m loving the slow-burn romance with a hint of spice.

Serpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove, #1)Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is just something about this book that makes it so damn addicting! Being the 3rd time I’ve read through this book, it still feels like I’m reading it for the first time. The excitement for things to come is still there, and I find that I’ve caught onto hints and sneak peeks within the writing that I never discovered before. The characters are great and loveable, even though there are times I just want to knock some sense into Reid with his hardheadedness…. Honestly, this series has automatically become a comfort read.

Blood & Honey (Serpent & Dove, #2)Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have been waiting MONTHS for the paperback release, and I’m so happy I read it finally! So, there were both good and bad things with this book. 1) Lou and Reid’s relationship/banter gets quite repetitive… at some point, it does get a bit old, but I like them too much to truly hate on it. 2) IF THEY WOULD JUST TALK TO EACH OTHER there would have been lots more meaningful conversations and a hella lot of character growths. That being said, I realize that every character had their own demons to fight and I was thoroughly invested in each one. Sure, Reid seemed to rub me the wrong with some of his commentary toward Lou (in regards to when he couldn’t ‘deal’ with her wild/magical side), but he was dealing with his whole world being flipped over in a heartbeat… Did that make it ok? Well, probably not, but I’m weirdly ok with that.

I really enjoyed reading more about Beau’s and Coco’s characters and backstories. It was a delight to get more information on each of them in detail without traveling too far away from our main couple, Lou and Reid. Overall, I did enjoy the book and I’m really looking forward to reading Gods and Monsters!

Year 1: Renegade: A supernatural academy book for teens (Guardian Angel Academy)Year 1: Renegade: A supernatural academy book for teens by Tamara Hart Heiner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I quite enjoyed this book, the first in the Guardian Angel Academy series by Tamara Hart Heiner. I liked how the author didn’t make our main female lead ‘perfect’ as she had many flaws (which made me love her for it), as she tried to figure out her life in this new situation she found herself in. I thought the story had the perfect about of drama, without it being too cliche, action-packed, great witty humor, and enough twists in the plot to keep me entertained.

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review

Year 2: RedemptionYear 2: Redemption by Tamara Hart Heiner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Year 2: Redemption is the second book of the Guardian Academy series by Tamara Heiner. Unlike the first book, the storyline for this one takes place mostly outside of the academy. Through the storyline, Jez continues to grow in her own person and learns more about emotions and her light ability. I personally thought that this second book was a really great sequel as the author dives deeper into our main character and the storyline continues to be engaging.

Year 3: Rebellion (Guardian Angel Academy)Year 3: Rebellion by Tamara Hart Heiner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so happy when I received an arc for the third book of this series. First off, I really liked how smooth and easy the transitions have been between the books. This one starts off right from Jez entering her third year at the academy. We already get to witness her struggles right from the beginning and I feel for her after what happened with Maalik (in the last book). Also, there’s a killer cliffhanger at the end of this book so BEWARE! 😀 It’s honestly a really great series and I recommend this for anyone that likes young adult fiction, hints of romance, missions/adventures and of course, angels and demons.
