    House of Earth and Blood Review

    Summary:  Bryce Quinlan had a great life, then it was taken away from her and she was all alone. She is trying to drift through life and when she is asked to partner with a fallen angel to find a murderer in Crescent City.  My Thoughts:  This book was heavy and long, but it was worth every single minute of reading.

It was a much different writing style from her other books and set in a very different setting and time period. There…

    Kingdom of Ash Review

    Summary In the stunning conclusion of the Throne of Glass series, Aelin Galathynius has sacrificed everything for her people, but can she survive Maeve’s prison? Will her gathered allies be able to rally together and defeat Erawan? Will all of our favorite heroes survive this last battle? My Thoughts:  I just can’t believe that series is over.

    Some of My Favorite Heroines

    Through my many years of reading, I have encountered so many amazing characters that I truly adore and want to read again and again. I feel like every time I start a new book, I add new characters to my ever-growing list and it’s getting harder to choose who is my favorite. Most of my favorite characters are sarcastic, intelligent, and badass and this list of characters meet these traits to a capital T.  Aelin Galathynius/Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas This is the coolest character that I’ve ever read. When I first meet her, she is a cold, broken, but determined girl that…
