Broken Things

Broken Things

I picked up the ARC for this book at my job and wasn’t totally interested in it but decided to give it a try. I cannot say this enough; it was the best decision I made! This book is a total crime novel that draws you in. One of the main characters is lesbian and the other is a used to be ballerina. They have to figure out who killed their best friend five years ago to stop everyone from blaming them.

What they don’t anticipate is the help along the way. They have to relive the memories and go through the book they once thought was their whold world to get the results of who killed their best friend. As obsession turns to murder and murder turns into an unsolved mystery the town turns on those they think did it. Five out of five stars for sure!

The Darkest Minds Movie

Spoilers ahead so don’t step any farther if you don’t want those!

This movie was really anticipated for me. I was really excited to see it and went on opening day. But it disappointed me. There was a couple of characters missing. Some of the scenes were portrayed wrong. This movie was also poorly made. It was really B rated to me. I was hoping for the best and got the second best.

It was definitely quickly made. It wasn’t a horrible movie but I really wish it had been better. I was just disappointed by what happened to this amazing book.

Furyborn

Oh wow, you guys. This book was amazing! I am sitting on my porch smoking a cigarette right now to take this book in! It was shockingly good. I didn’t know how much I would like it. I was unsure when I started it but was curious about the raving reviews I saw on it. Needless to say, I can see why the reviews rave about this book!

This book goes back and forth between two queens who battle different fights throughout the story. It gives you the whole backstory and the current in one book. They both have good hearts and have to make hard choices that result in the story it becomes. They find the faults in love while finding the great things in it. There is a love for family and a love for country in this book. The themes throughout are amazing and I totally recommend this book!

I cannot wait to meet this author in September!

Five out of five stars!

Ash Princess

Ash Princess

I found this book at the bookstore and wanted to read it. It’s about a princess who’s land gets taken over when she is a young child. Throughout the story, she is treated as a glorified prisoner. She makes one friend who in the end ends up being someone else. This story was very interesting from beginning to end.

She is forced to kill her own father when they capture him and there is a theme of magic throughout. The people are mining for these jewels with the ability of certain elements. With each turn of events, Theodosia changes as a character. I kind of like her but kind of don’t. I really have yet to decide what I think of her but I have two more books to decide (according to Goodreads).

I hadn’t seen this book on Instagram or any of the blogs I follow which I find interesting because this book is written very well and you can tell it’s going to be a part of a series. I cannot wait for the second book to continue this story.

Five out of five stars! 🙂

Heart of Mist


HEART-OF-MIST

The beginning of this book was a little slow for me. I was unsure if I was going to be able to finish the book. But I pushed through and as the story went on I fell in love with the story.

Bleak is one of those characters that you are not sure if you like them in the beginning and you are not so sure at the end but you can relate to them. The one character I really loved was Henri because I really liked her character and the kindred she came from. I really have high hopes for the next book in this series since I enjoyed this book so much. I normally don’t mass tweet during a book but I did during this one. I want answers! D:

Five out of five stars! 🙂
