Review: Forging Silver into Stars – Brigid Kemmerer

Review: Forging Silver into St..

In March of 2018 I was able to read a bounded copy of Brigid Kemmerer’s book A Curse So Dark and Lonely so I could give a blogger blurb. I had previously been in love with Brigid’s contemporary books so I was really excited to see what she did with fantasy. She blew me away with the story she gave us and the characters we got to know and love. The world she built was stunning and enthralling. So when I heard Forging Silver into Stars was an expansion of that world with Tycho being a main character I was […]

Review: Defy the Night – Brigid Kemmerer

Review: Defy the Night –..

In 2017 I fell in love with Brigid Kemmerer and her writing. I picked up one of her books, Love Letters to the Lost, at 7am one day and by the end of that night I was done, while working a full day. Her writing grabbed me immediately and I never turned back. Since then I have devoured 5 other books by her and have loved them all to pieces thinking she could never get any better. And then I read Defy the Night. This book, to me, is by far Brigid’s best work and I’m obsessed and head over […]

Mini Reviews #9 – Netgalley Mini Reviews 3.0

Mini Reviews #9 – Netgal..

Another month, more Netgalley reviews. Here are a few brief thoughts on some 3 star Netgalley reads: In theory You Lucky Dog sounds like it would be a really fun, cute rom com. It had all the parts. Sadly, for me, that just wasn’t the case. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed some of it, like the dogs because they were ADORABLE. And I also liked some of the family aspect. That was a good thing to include, especially Max’s family. But for the most part I found the plot very slow and Carly’s family felt like caricatures and not […]

Review: Accidental – Alex Richards

Review: Accidental – Ale..

I can’t remember how I heard about Accidental but I do remember I wanted to read it as soon as I learned about its existence. It seemed like a book that not only had never read anything like, but something that is current and could almost have been ripped from the headlines. I knew it would be a heavy book, and I was prepared. And although it wasn’t as emotional as I expected, Accidental was a book I was happy to have read. Accidental is about 16 year old Johanna who is being raised by her grandparents after her mom […]

Review: The Map from Here to There – Emery Lord

Review: The Map from Here to T..

I admit I was nervous when I learned there was going to be a sequel to The Start of Me and You. I was so happy with how things ended with Paige and Max I was terrified where it would go. But I am also an Emery Lord fangirl so there was no way I wouldn’t read it. That being said it is safe to say that The Map from Here to There demolished my feelings and added a whole new level to Paige and Max’s relationship that just deepened my love for them. The Map from Here to There […]
