Review: The Winner’s Crime – Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Cri..

Well The Winner’s Crime broke me. I kid you not, it ripped my heart out and stomped on it and then handed it back to me in a puddle. It took my words for two weeks and left me demolished. So naturally I loved it. I was late to the party for the Winner’s trilogy. I had heard a lot about The Winner’s Curse from friends but I had never jumped in. But since I started to read a wider selection of books and not just dystopian and contemporaries I finally gave it a chance. And the end just about […]

Blog Tour: I’ll Meet You There Q and A with Heather Demetrios and a Giveaway

Blog Tour: I’ll Meet You..

1. I was lucky enough to win a copy of I’ll Meet You There and read it back in the summer. It is one of those books that just stays with you (4 months later it still kills me in the best of ways!).

I didn’t want to compare the two books as I knew they were completely different, but sometimes you can’t help worrying in your head that you will. Well rest well my reading friends, not once did I […]

Review: The Winner’s Curse – Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Cur..

I had no plans to read this book. I liked the pretty cover but that was about where it ended. The story didn’t grab my attention. But then something changed and I became curious about the book/series that everyone talks about. After questioning Twitter on what book I should read between two, I got 100% results for The Winner’s Curse. And thus began my journey of agonizing love of this series and I can now say I get the hype. The Winner’s Curse is the story of Kestrel and Arin. Kestrel is the daughter of a highly ranked general. Kestrel […]
