My Thoughts Holy $%&*$. Why Sabaa? Why? I am not okay. Will not be okay until I have book four in my desperate, shaking hands… and friends… it is still in the brainstorming stages. Sigh. While I am going to do my best to keep this review spoiler free for Reaper, this may not be […]

Hi Friends! I apologize for the lag in posts lately. If you didn’t know, I am currently working on my doctorate and each summer I have to travel to campus in Knoxville, Tennessee to complete my residency. This also means that I have a semesters worth of work, crammed into just one month… June. We […]

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. My Thoughts Hi friends! Before I dive in, I wanted to give you a heads up this is a review for the second book in […]

My Thoughts I tried. I really, really tried to get into The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter. I absolutely love classic literature, especially all the Victorian horror and monster stories. The first time I came across this book was while I was traveling in March, and I almost picked it up then. So when […]

My Thoughts So the other day I realized I had not even attempted to write a review of ACOFAS. Not because I was mentally crafting a brilliant review. I just simply forgot… Yes… I just FORGOT a story by Queen Maas. And I should say that ‘story’ is used loosely here. This is a little […]

My Thoughts So I have a confession… I am a bit of a Shakespeare snob. There, I admitted it. I know the difference between a monologue, soliloquy, and apostrophe (and had a few memorized once upon a time). ‘Thou’ and ‘you’ are NOT the same. Yes, I have read the sonnets. And I become incredibly […]

My Thoughts Why haven’t I read this sooner? Wow, I remember that from the movie. Gandolf you slay me, oh master of snark! Seriously, was I living in a cave? Hey this guy’s singing voice isn’t half bad… PRECIOUS…. HOW HAVE I SURVIVED THESE PAST 32 YEARS WITHOUT READING THIS?!? Seriously though… I am truly […]

My Thoughts Why hello again chums! Once again Amie and Jay stole me away from all adult responsibilities, annihilated my heart and tossed me out the airlock. Obsidio has All.The.Feels. Like the previous books, I could not escape Obsidio despite great effort to slow down so I could savor the story. I did not want […]

My Thoughts If you have read my review of Caraval, you remember that my experience was… interesting. I couldn’t stand Scarlett for half the book then unexpectedly was swept away by the magic of Caraval. This was definitely not a problem with Legendary. I found myself enthralled from the very beginning. Must.Know.What.Happens – itis hit […]

Furyborn – Fierce Start ..

Posted May 10, 2018 by ReadandWander in Reviews / 2 Comments

My Thoughts Wow. Furyborn grabs you from the prologue and sets you up to be both in awe and have your heart ripped into pieces the entire ride. It was like seeing a train derailing and being completely unable to stop it. The story starts in one of the worst moments in the characters lives, […]
