I’ve been craving a Young Adult fantasy novel thats actually original and has great world building for so long and The Court of Miracles has supplied the solution. With a little bit of a slow start, I was worried this was going to be equipped with long, drawn out plot that was going to take a turn into boring. The plot does pick up though and its worth the slow beginning. The writing style is my favorite part about The Court of Miracles. It’s beautifully written and makes this book stand out from the mass of YA fantasy out there. There’s a wonderful cast of characters and even though I never became deeply invested in the characters, I really enjoyed them. I really loved the main character and, in my opinion, she makes this book stand out so much. If you’re not much into romance being forced into every single book, The Court of Miracles is for you. I really appreciated how there wasn’t much in this book and what little there is, isn’t unnecessarily forced into the plot.
This book is SO GOOD. I wasn’t expecting it to be amazing as it is and I’m blown away. The diversity, the representation, the plot, the characters, everything about this book is 10/10. I did assume from the cover that this was middle grade, which it is definitely not. This book isn’t slow at all and the action starts right away, which I loved. It’s fast paced without being rushed and the plot is so engaging, I would being reading for hours and never get bored. I loved the characters so much. I enjoyed the diversity and representation so much. I can’t remember the last time I read a diverse fantasy YA book thatI enjoyed so much. The writing was wonderful and the concept was fantastic. I honestly have nothing negative to say about this book, I enjoyed it so much. It’s been such a long time since I’ve loved a YA book so much and The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea is everything I needed from a YA book and more. I highly recommend picking up a copy.
This is my first book by Jennifer Hillier and it definitely won’t be my last. I absolutely loved Little Secrets. From the first chapter, I was invested and I never wanted to put this book down. I read it in less than 24 hours because it was such a great read. It wasn’t necessarily packed with action but it wasn’t slow and it was very entertaining and engaging. The pacing was great and the plot twists were unexpected but not outlandish and over the top. The whole plot was written with direction and purpose. I thought the main character was wonderfully written and flawed enough that she wasn’t plain and boring. Overall, absolutely fantastic read. I loved everything about it and I’m still in awe at how well written the plot was. I’ve read so many thrillers with poorly executed plot twists and outlandish surprises that don’t make sense. Little Secrets is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever read and it’s definitely one of my favorite books of 2020.
I’m so surprised by how much I really enjoyed this book. It tells such a raw, honest story and I couldn’t help but become invested from the first chapter. The writing is so great and the author is so talented. I felt the plot was very authentic and didn’t shy away from being gritty. The plot itself wasn’t action packed but I didn’t think it was boring or unbearably slow. It was very engaging and I read the entire book in just a one sitting.
This book was so beautiful. I loved every aspect of it and it was so touching. From Scratch really brought out so many emotions while I was reading it and I didn’t ever want to put it down. I was very surprised but how wonderful the writing style was and every word left so sincere and I could tell how much love and passion went into creating this book.
I’ve loved all of Jessyca Thibault’s books and Spilled Sugar is no exception. Jessyca is such an amazingly talented writer and each of her poetry collections are uniquely beautiful. The overall quality of each poem is notable and the consistency throughout this book is wonderful. I didn’t feel like there was any filler poems or pages of lesser quality. Each page is full of honest emotions that are transformed into beautiful works of art.
This is one of the best poetry books I’ve ever read. I loved it so much. I could really feel the passion and honesty in the words and each poem was so well written. The quality of the whole collection is fantastic. Each line is beautifully written and full of the author’s emotions. I highly recommend picking up a copy if you’re interested to poetry.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a super fluffy romance and that’s definitely what The Stars in Her Eyes is. The writing style was good, the characters were fun but the toxic way some of the male characters treated Creslyn wasn’t okay to me. Like I said, it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book like this so I’m a little disappointed after all this time, it’s still normal for male characters to be this toxic in this genre. The plot was pretty unique and it was also a very quick read. Overall, it’s a fun romance read. It’s definitely not meant to be taken seriously or to be read critically. If you look to deep, there’s flaws but for a quick, light read, it was enjoyable.
I was so excited to read Mexican Gothic. I don’t remember the last time I had so much hype to read a book and I was so overjoyed when the publisher sent me over an early copy. This was the first book by Silvia Moreno-Garcia that I’ve read but as soon as I finished Mexican Gothic, I knew I had to pick up her other books right away. I loved everything about this book. The writing is absolutely stunning and captivating. I adored the main character so much! She was well written, determined, and so much fun to read about. The plot was so unique and mysterious, I never wanted to put this book down. It was such a one of a kind read, I won’t be forgetting Mexican Gothic anytime soon.
I’ve read a decent amount of poetry, especially in the last couple of months, and Soul Land was very unique from all the others I’ve read. I really enjoyed how descriptive the poems were and the beautiful picture the author painted with each poem. It was surprisingly very short so it was a quick, fun read.
