“Truthwitch” by Susan Dennard Review:

Literally sobbing by the end of this book because it was SO GOOD!! This book deserves way more hype and love in the YA community and Susan Dennard just deserves the world as a writer and a person. Slow burning romance, friendships being just as important as romantic relationships, and diversity!!

Truthwitch follows Safiya and Iseult, two witches/best friends. Safiya is a Truthwitch, she can discern truth from lie. When a revenge plot goes south, Safi and Iseult have to go on the run– and Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she could be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires. Iseult, is a threadwitch, she has the ability to see the ties that entangle the lives around her. Unfortunately, she can not see the birds that touch her own heart. She lives a life of an outcast where people fear and hate her for who she is where she comes from. And Iseult has deeper powers that even she has yet to discover. Safi and Iseult end up entangled with the Windwitch Merik, a Prince of a starving nation and Aeduan, a Bloodwitch witch who can track and control people’s blood. With a war between the empires of the Witchlands looming on the horizon, Safi and Iseult have to find out who their true allies are and where they stand in the war to come.

“The Bronze Horseman” by Paullina Simons Review:

I just do not understand why I am one of the only people to not like this book? Honestly is no one else seeing the problems with it or just the sheer boringness?? It definitely should have been a stand alone or this book should have been split into 2 and made into a duology. It’s way too long and drawn out and I can’t even imagine reading the next too books.

“Of Fire and Stars” by Audrey Coulhurst Review:

I really don’t understand why this book is getting such poor reviews!! I really really enjoyed it! I got this book in my owlcrate awhile ago and never picked it up until this summer because I was afraid I would hate it but gah I was blown away! I’m rarely if ever pleasantly surprised with a book I think I’m not going to like but this is a beautiful exception.

“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue” by Mackenzi Lee Review:

I cannot even BEGIN to describe my love for this book there are literally no words to describe its perfection GAH I’M OBSESSED!! You know how rare it is that I give a book five stars, and I literally would give this book 5000 stars if I could. It wins in literally every single element that makes a good novel. Character development, plot, action, romance, humor, writing style, realistic relationships, all 5/5 stars.

“Wintersong” by S. Jae Jones Review:

I’ve been very disappointed with the books I’ve been reading lately, mainly because my expectations got too high and then the books just fell short. I had high expectations with Winterson but I tried not to get my hopes up, but man this book was AMAZING!! This book is such a beautiful read and very transportive. This book felt incredibly unique and was very dark and eerie, which I loved. 4/5 stars!

“The Gate Guardian’s Daughter” by K.T. Munson Review:

Guardian demons, an isolated little girl with dangerous powers and conscious stardust– find all this and more in K.T. Munson’s newest novella “The Gate Guardian’s Daughter” prequel to “The Sixth Gate” trilogy!

I’m working on my one sentence reviews, but for real, how can I condense everything in The Gate Guardian’s Daughter into a single sentence?! This prequel perfectly sets the stage without throwing up information on the reader and introduces the characters just enough while still leaving you wanting more. 4/5 stars!!

“A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas Review:

This is my first Sarah J Maas book that I’ve given less than 5 stars to and honestly I am just completely devastated right now. I tried to drag ACOWAR out as long as I could– I didn’t start it for weeks after it came out, I avoided spoilers as much as humanly possible and I didn’t read a single early released quote. I was so freaking excited for this book to come out. I have no words to describe the emotions and heartache I felt after A Court of Mist and Fury, and I had waited over a year for A Court of Wings and Ruin. I didn’t want to start it because I didn’t want my favorite book series of all time to end. I was scared for the characters I had grown to love, scared to face a world where I wouldn’t have another Prynthian adventure to look forward to year after year. The one thing I wasn’t scared of was being disappointed.

But I was. I was horribly, immensely disappointed.

“A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas Review:

“I will say this once– and a only once. You can be a pawn, be someone’s reward, and spend the rest of your immortal life bowing and scraping and pretending you’re less than him, than Ianthe, than any of us… Or, you’ve got another choice. You can master whatever powers we gave to you, and make it count. You can play a role in this war. Because war is coming one way or another, and do not try to delude yourself that any of the Fae will give a shit about your family across the wall when our whole territory is likely to be come a charnel house.”
