February 2017 Owl Crate Review!

I’ve been an Owlcrate subscriber for about six months now and this box was my favorite that they’ve done (so far). The theme for this month is Run Away with the Circus, and while I’m not a huge circus fan, the idea was unique and definitely had lots of appeal. Especially when they specified no clowns. Because ew, clowns…

Crown of Midnight Book Review

Finally finished Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass). It had a different feel than Throne of Glass. It was so cool watching Celaena’s delicate dance of assassination and politics. I liked it more than the first one, until a character (who shall be nameless to avoid spoilers) died. All the characters were acting a bit ridiculous but I’ve been told they get a lot better in the next couple books. Overall, I really liked it. Read on to find out why you should read Crown of Midnight.

Wires and Nerve Book Review

My fantastic husband knew exactly what I wanted for Valentine’s Day! Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer was on my to read list the moment I saw the announcement. Iko was a character that I loved in the original series and I was so excited to see more of her. Reading Wires and Nerve was so fun. I hope the review gets you excited for it too!

Everland Book Review

Everland by Wendy Spinale has been on my to read list for a while, since one of my friends read it. I’m a sucker for Peter Pan and dystopian fiction so I thought, why not?  Everland was an interesting read and I’m excited to tell you all about it.

Book Review-Red Rising by Pierce Brown

So, I started Red Rising a few days ago, and even though I absolutely loved it, things kept getting in the way of reading it. *cough NCIS cough Chris* But it was so good! I have a brand new canon couple to ship, which makes me happy. Let me know what you guys think in the comments! Contains minor spoilers.

Red Rising was a powerful young adult dystopian. I got into it with high expectations because I’d heard such fantastic reviews about it. I had also received a couple pins from an OwlCrate that had Darrow on them. So I was excited to finally meet the man behind the pin.

Book Review-Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

An in depth book review of Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

It’s been recently published, so no spoilers. I’ll come back and update it in a few months with specifics for anyone who’s interested. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth definitely earned a 5 out of 5 with me. I enjoyed the Divergent trilogy, but found the writing just okay. The ending of Allegiant I won’t bother getting into with this post because there’s just so much that could be said. The writing in Carve the Mark showed definite improvement. I wasn’t distracted from the story, it flowed cleanly between the different viewpoints.
