    To Kill a Kingdom Review

    Summary Lira is a princess in the siren kingdom and Elain is a prince in the human kingdom famous for hunting sirens. When the two royals collide, all hell will break loose and things will never be the same.  My Thoughts:  Oh this book was everything I wanted and more. The last few books have been a little disappointing, but this book was definitely a breath of fresh air. It had adventure, sassy characters, pirates, mermaids, sirens, devious royals, and the call of the ocean. I just wish it was longer!  First of all, I loved the book world that the author created. The world of sirens was so interesting…

    My Ideal Reading Setting

    Now that the weather is growing colder, THANK GOD, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my ideal reading situation would be. Where am I the most comfortable and less distracted? What is the weather like? Do I have a drink? So many factors go into making sure that I am focused on the book and comfortable enough to stay there for a length of time. There is one thing I thought about first and I CANNOT read outside. I’ve tried and it doesn’t work. It’s either way too cold, too hot, or there are bugs everywhere! I tried reading in the park one time and I unfortunately sat under…

    A Deadly Education

    Summary Scholomance is no school you’ve ever been to. There is no adult supervision, no time off, and the cliques are more about survival than friendship. El is determined to survive until graduation no matter the cost, but without a partner, can she survive? My Thoughts:  When I read the summary of this book, I was extremely excited. I mean it was a magical school so I was instantly intrigued and the main character sounded like someone I would love to read about. However, I was a little wary of who it was written by.  I had seen reviews about this author before, but I didn’t really understand why a…

    Gemina Review

    Summary:  In another space station, on the other side of the galaxy, Hanna has moved to the Jump Station Heimdall and she is not happy about it. However, she had no idea that she was going to face a bigger danger than damage to her social life…. My Thoughts:  I’m sorry, but what the f**k just happened?!!? Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman I feel like it was April Fool’s Day and you’ve punked me at least 50 times!  So I didn’t read the synopsis so I had no idea it wasn’t going to be about Kady and Erza. I was a little disappointed, I’m not going to lie. However, when…
