Sunday Street Team // Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Welcome to my first Sunday Street Team post! I was beyond excited to participate in the tour for Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh. Check out my review of the book! My Thoughts: As a self proclaimed cover snob, I have no qualms admitting that this cover caught my eye. It promises a chilling, eerie read and guess what? The pages within delivered! I love a good small town […]

Strange but Awesome // Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies by Lindsay Ribar

This was a very strange and quirky little book. In a very unique way Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies deals with family, friendship, choosing your own path in life and empathy. However, I wouldn’t call it paranormal. It feels more like magical realism to me. That’s a genre I don’t read a lot of and I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. And because a quirky book like […]

Review | Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer

My Take: Even though The Elemental series has been on my TO READ list for ages, I have yet to read it. But when I saw Thicker Than Water, I knew it was one I needed in my life and jumped on the chance to read/review it. Thicker Than Water had so many elements to the story that made up its greatness. A murder mystery, suspense, a romance.. and something […]

ARC Review | Alive by Chandler Baker

Wow. We can file Alive under TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. However, I didn’t have any expectations when heading into Alive – the premise is interesting and I have this morbid fascination with the possibility of organ transplants gone wrong. That’s not to say that is what happened, per se, but I have a wild imagination on a good day. Ella was, in short, a hard character to like. I was sympathetic to her […]

Review | Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

(Vague review) So, this book is weird. I don’t know exactly what I expected when heading into this book. I knew that it was going to be a little weird; her other book (Don’t You) Forget About Me was a serious mind (insert bad word here). But the level on weird this book contains is mind-boggling. I am all for books that are confusing, mysterious and full of WTFery. Yet, it […]

Review | Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) by Richelle Mead

*Slightly spoilerish* And some ranting I feel like we are stuck in a pattern with this series. MEH BOOK, GOOD BOOK, MEH BOOK, GOOD BOOK.. and Silver Shadows is bordering on MEH to WHAT IS THIS!? After the heart stop ending to Fiery Heart I went into Silver Shadows excited, hopeful, yet with a side of trepidation. After a vague conversation with a blogger friend of mine, I knew that something happened […]

Review | The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4) by Richelle Mead

Really, what is there to be said about The Fiery Heart that hasn’t been already? Not only is it right in the middle of the series – which is hard to review on any given day – but the love I have for this series has soared. I want to point out that although I gave The Indigo Spell 4- stars, it was my least favorite book in the series. Why? […]
