Book Review: The Dragon’s Price

Book Review: The Dragon’s Price

This book was so beyond ridiculous, you guys, I can barely articulate it. When The Dragon’s Price was first announced, it was with phrases like “death by dragon instead of a marriage” and “absorbs its power” which I guess is true, but hardly at all what the book is about. The first blurb promised so much badassery but failed to deliver in almost every aspect. This book did have two things going for it, and I’ll talk about them now […]

Something I Haven’t Done in a While

Something I Haven’t Done in a While

  In the early days of my blogging career, I reviewed everything I read, and I basically finished every book I started. I wasn’t (and still am not) afraid to post a negative review if I didn’t like a book. I would tear into books without mercy and I would do it pretty frequently. I was new to the YA scene, so I was making my way through the staples, and some of those books were just not good. I […]

Maas. *heavy sigh* What a flop. I was obsessed with this series from Crown of Midnight onward, and I really believe it peaked with Heir of Fire. I could go on and on about this, but Heir of Fire was a work of genius and I […]

All I know is we filed our taxes and I bought a bunch of clothes for myself and for Rosalie. That’s it. I haven’t read. I watched some TV and movies but really, nothing to report on. this week’s posts […]

My February Uppercase Box

My February Uppercase Box

For a few months now I’ve been subscribed to the Uppercase subscription box. It’s a monthly YA box of bookish goodies plus one book. I absolutely love it and think it’s definitely worth the price. For one thing, the book is signed, and for another, it helps curb spending. I always wait to find out what the Uppercase book is going to be before I make any obvious new release purchases. I always include the book I get in my […]

Oh my god, I LOVE this couple. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned them a half a dozen times, but oh man. Plus, you can never […]
