Review: Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Daughter of Smoke & Bone Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

What can I say... If you are like me and you are late to these books, its okay, take a breath and read them!!!

“Your soul sings to mine. My soul is yours, and it always will be, in any world. No matter what happens. I need you to remember that I love you.”

I fell in love with this story. I did remind me a lot of the book series, Hidden Wings by Cameo Renae.

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.
It did not end well.”


Karou is a girl that works for Brimstone and bidding his needs. When called in to their world, he sends her to fetch teeth for him. I did want to know the entire time of the book why he needed teeth. Its okay guys, if you are like me and you want to know, it does get answered at the end of this book. Once she enters a door she wasn't supposed to she begins seeing burnt hand prints on the doors. After being kicked out by Brimestone she doesn't question the handprints.

And lets talk about Akiva. He is an angel sent down to destroy the other world but for some reason he is drawn to Karou. When the town fight broke out between Akiva and Karou, I was like the magic that was still going on.

“It's not like there's a law against flying."
"Yes there is. The law of gravity.”


I think the story was beautifully done. I think the love story was sweet and I wanted Karou and Akiva to finally get together.

When the story began to reveal itself, I was in love with the book. The world building of this book was amazing. I was so glad I picked up this book. I did not let me down. I can not wait to move on to book 2. I hope the story gets better. I don't want to read other reviews because I don't want to be disappointed.

Review: Ghosts of Gotham -ARC

Ghosts of Gotham Ghosts of Gotham by Craig Schaefer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley.

This was my first Craig Schaefer book but sure won’t be the last.

I can honestly say, I was very surprised. This was my first Craig Schaefer book and I will not be the last. The moment I started reading it I knew I would not be able to put this book down. The world and plot of this story was very well written and explored by the author.

We are met with our two main characters are Lionel and Maddie. Lionel is a reporter whose purpose is to debunk frauds. Because of his past and in order to make sure that his past stays behind him, he makes a deal with a woman named Regina Dunkle. She wants him to find a Poe manuscript for her and so from there the story begins. Then we have Maddie. She is so not what se seems. Maddie has a dark past of her own. The relationship between these two characters, I loved!

I am not sure if this is a stand alone or if there will be others but I think this book has more it can grow on. If we knew more about the past for both of them, this story could really grow.

Review: Storm and Fury ARC

Storm and Fury Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for release of this book in exchange for an honest review!!

Lets just say, WOW.. I loved this book. This was actually my first read by Jennifer Armentrout but now I just want to read all the books! I do know that this is apparently a spin off from The Dark Elements series which I have not read, like I said this was my first read. I am sure I am missing some valuable information. This makes me want to read that series then re-read this so I can see what I might have really missed.

What caught my attention when I requested this book was the aspect of being able to see ghost and spirits but hold on, it does not stop there, we have gargoyle shape-shifters. I mean, what???? Yes, please, give to me! I am so thankful that I was actually given this ARC. Also, lets just take a moment and look at this cover art!!........ Moment over! Yes, stunning work.

Also, I think this maybe a first book in a series. Not sure but I think so.

I do recommend this book!

Review: In the Shadow of Spindrift House - ARC

In the Shadow of Spindrift House In the Shadow of Spindrift House by Mira Grant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy!

I think this was my first book by Mira Grant but I have seen so many rave about her work. I can see why people enjoy her work. I really enjoyed this book. It definitely had its fair share of chilling moments. Anything with a spooky house gives me the chills.

I have noticed smaller ratings on this but I am not sure if that is because others enjoyed her work more so for that I will have to check out her other work but this was a solid 4 star read for me. I may will know more about her other writing once I read more by her but I really enjoyed the creepy aspects to this book.

Finale by Stephanie Garber is going on TOUR!

Finale Finale by Stephanie Garber
     

UPDATE!!!! Stephanie Garber is going on TOUR for book #4, Finale.

I can not wait to head to Nashville May 11. This is on a Saturday, so at this point I have nothing to interfere with my journey there!! I missed the Nashville last year because it fell on a Friday and I had to work. This is the best news to come across all week.





I am so excited for this book! This is my most anticipated book of the year. I have already purchased 4 different copies of this book and have my eye on a couple other copies! I just wish I had other copies of the first 2 books. All I have of those are the Barnes and Noble editions. I do have the ARC of legendary also. Super huge fan... But if any one has the cards from the first 2 books for sale, please let me know! I go my submission put in for the pre-order on these. I missed the others.

If you have any special editions of these book you are looking to get rid of or sale, please let me know. I have money ready to.

Stephanie Garber has rose to be one of my never miss a book buy. Her writing is magical and she has a way to pull you into her world. I knew from the moment that Caraval released that I would love this world. It is full of games, magical elements, and trust issues but most of all, this book series kept me on my toes.

I did not think that there was a way for book 2 to out do book one, but wow. The world just go better and the fates are brought in to this world.

I can not see when where this book takes us. I really hope I am lucky enough to get my hands on advanced copy. However, I did see where Stephanie said on IG that there were very limited amounts for this book. I guess if I don't, I will just hold my breath to the release date, and just know that I will make sure I have no other books keeping my time on that day. This will be the book I pick up!

I hope you are looking forward to this as much as I am!!
