The Strange Case of the Alchem..

Posted June 2, 2018 by ReadandWander in Reviews / 2 Comments

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 to an Epic Fantasy Series | Spoiler Free Review

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, […]

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 Wowza. I have been in YA land way too long. It has been a while since I have read an adult romance and […]

Song of Blood and Stone –..

Posted April 30, 2018 by ReadandWander in Reviews / 0 Comments

My Thoughts First, can we just take a moment to admire that gorgeous cover? Swoon. When Song of Blood and Stone first came into my world via the Netgalley Gods, I didn’t realize it was the book I truly needed at that very moment. You see, I had just finished with what I felt was my […]

My Thoughts Well fems and chums, just when you think it can’t get any better… you get Gemina. I wasn’t sure what to think when I learned that Kady and Ezra were not the focus of this addition of the Illuminae Files but that uncertainty was completely unnecessary. I loved Gemina. I loved Hanna and […]
