Kingsbane – Claire Legrand

Kingsbane by Claire Legrand My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars I loved the first book in the Empirium series, Furyborn by Claire Legrand. I also loved Kingsbane, but for very different reasons. Although set in the same world with the same lead characters, we are now in a different stage of Rielle and Eliana's lives … Continue reading Kingsbane – Claire Legrand

Finale – Stephanie Garber

Finale by Stephanie Garber My rating: 5 of 5 stars Finale by Stephanie Garber is the third and finale book in her Caraval series. Caraval began the series and was Garber’s debut novel.

I wanted to like Anna so much, but she just didn't get enough development over the course of this novella (and can you really be surprised, it's a … Continue reading Every Exquisite Thing – Cassandra Clare

A Deeper Love – Cassandra Clare

A Deeper Love by Cassandra Clare My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars I would like to just be frustratingly vague right now: Yes, please - but also, that one part... oh yeah it’s never happened before (but we know it happens in TMI) so let’s just annoying allude to it and make everyone lusty for … Continue reading A Deeper Love – Cassandra Clare

Escaping from Houdini – Kerri Maniscalco

Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars The Stalking Jack the Ripper series is quite hard to place for me. There are so many great moments of promise within the series, but yet somehow ends up not feeling quite right to me. I did enjoy this book the most so … Continue reading Escaping from Houdini – Kerri Maniscalco
