Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King. To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences. In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
I mean, with that kind of description I knew I wanted to read this. And I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC. Continue reading “The Cruel Prince by Holly Black”

I love Ashley Poston. I adored Geekerella and I was lucky enough to meet her at BookCon and I have talked to her a couple of times over Twitter. She’s so sweet and nice and humble and amazing. So of course I was drooling over her new book.
The cover is amazing and I love sci-fi, so I was thrilled when I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC. Continue reading “Heart Of Iron by Ashley Poston”

This was my first Adam Silvera book and I was PUMPED to start it. I even put down one of my highly anticipated reads to start it! And I’m being completely honest when I say that I hate to say that it wasn’t my favorite.
I think it has something to do with the note in the front. That completely threw me off and I think affected how I viewed and read the rest of the story. And I have a few things to say about it. Continue reading “They Both Die At The End: Review”

I love Stephanie Perkins. She is one of my favorite contemporary authors and her books fall into the list of I hear about them, I instantly want to read them. So, I’ve been looking forward to There’s Someone Inside Your House since it’s announcement. I was excited to see something different from an author who I really love.

With a catchphrase to give you chills like “Onward, if you dare” (which is so awesome and I love it so much), I knew that I really, really wanted to read this one.
I have always loved anything done by Amie Kaufman and/or Megan Spooner, so when I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC of their upcoming novel, Unearthed, it is an understatement to say that I couldn’t WAIT to start reading.
This book is all about alien temples, who and when to trust, and figuring out who the real enemy is. And it’s really, really awesome. Continue reading “Unearthed: A Review”
During one week in July, I was supposed to receive A TON of book mail and I had a big plan to do a book haul for just that week and it was going to be great. Unfortunately, things went wrong with the mail and books arrived either earlier or later than intended. I also procrastinated a bit, so these are (almost) all the books I received this month.

The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue (authored by Mackenzie Lee) was a simply phenomenal book. I found it easy to relate to the character’s, even though I haven’t gone exactly what they went through and didn’t feel exactly feel what they feel, I could still relate to their issues and see where they were coming from with my own knowledge and how I think about things. Recently, I have noticed that I haven’t been able to really relate to characters, just because of where I am in my life, but I think Mackenzie Lee does a magnificent job of portraying emotional turmoil and making it easy to see where characters are coming from. Maybe I was able to relate to them simply because I was able to relate to the issues more closely in this book than others, but either way Mackenzie deserves some props because this story is amazing.
