Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows was so freaking fantastic. Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy is one of my favorite series of all time, and a part of me thought she couldn’t really top that, but boy, were my socks knocked off my feet. This book was so incredibly good. The entire story is one crazy intense and action packed ride, where plot twists just lurk behind every corner waiting to jump on you. This is a MUST READ! Intriguing and original setting First things first, Six of Crows is loosely based on 17th century the Netherlands. A setting that was really different from what we encountered in the Grisha trilogy, but made for a wonderful addition to the Grishaverse! The Dutch words that were incorporated in the story and the little cultural things…

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

Something Like Normal is a beautiful read: raw and unflinchingly honest. While I’m writing my review (roughly an hour after having finished the book) I don’t quite know what to do with myself. There’s this feeling inside me that took root when I started reading Something Like Normal and kept growing and growing while reading and I feel like it’s about to burst right now. This book is under my skin, and managed to secure a special place in my heart. THAT’s how beautiful this book was. I love how this book isn’t about patriotism or politics. Simply put Something Like Normal is a story about people. Trish Dollar doesn’t turn her characters into saints, they’re flawed like any person is, and that is exactly the thing that…

New OTP on the Horizon – Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling now holds a special place among my favorite fantasy books. What a story! Magical powers, good and interesting plot, and great characters, what more can you ask for?! I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy after finishing Graceling and want to hug the book to my chest and never EVER let go again. I need more. This story could’ve gone on infinitely and I wouldn’t have cared, I just need MORE. I have a new OTP, Katsa and Po were absolutely PERFECT together. I absolutely ADORE Katsa and Po together. I love how they first became friends and then slowly their bond developed into much more. They had that special something, that spark, that makes for a beautiful romance. They are, well I can’t say adorable, because…

a Bombshell of a Fantasy – The Falconer by Elizabeth May

The Falconer is EVERYTHING and more. I loved every single second of this book, and I am dying to read more. Every since I read my first steampunk story I’ve been kinda intrigued and obsessed with the genre. The Falconer has steampunk AND faeries, a more perfect combination doesn’t exist, especially when the story is so perfectly executed. Aileanna is as feisty and determined as they come, she’s a glorious protagonist (one I’d rather not have as my enemy) The main character, Aileanna, takes badass to a whole new level. Since she witnessed a fae kill her mother she’s been thirsting for vengeance. Kieran, a powerful faery, trains her and gives her all the tools to kill all kinds of faeries. Her thirst of revenge…
