Epic Recs Review: Vicious

Epic Recs Review: Vicious

Woowww. This book was not at all what I was expecting. Looking back, I’m not sure what it was I thought I was getting into, but Vicious took all my expectations and turned them on their heads. And for the better. Schwab weaves quite a bleak and grim world in this one, with characters who are neither black or white, but a muddy shade of the gray in between good and evil. While I felt the pacing was a bit […]

Review + Giveaway: All The Rage

Review + Giveaway: All The Rage

Oh my god. All the Rage… you guys. This book fucked me up. I’ve had trouble with Summers’ work before (specifically This is Not a Test) not because it was bad but because it triggered me too harshly too early in the book to make any headway, but this? This was unputdownable. I read this book in two sittings, only taking a break because I was emotionally exhausted. Romy is a character I had to follow through to the end. […]

Stacking the Shelves #2

Stacking the Shelves #2

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Oh, what a week this has been. It started out calmly enough. I finally watch As Above, So Below, which I will be reviewing later this week. I also read All the Rage by Courtney Summers which was absolutely phenomenal. Finally, I started Vicious by Victoria Schwab, and I’m about halfway through right now and enjoying it. Around the house, we bought the cats a new cat tree and they’re loving it. […]

Revisiting The Kiss of Deception

Revisiting The Kiss of Deception

Last spring, I read The Kiss of Deception and while it wasn’t perfect, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in reading it. It’s getting to be the time to read the sequel, The Heart of Betrayal and I knew from talking to my friends about book one that I needed to revisit the first installment of the series before I moved on. There were big things I missed the first time around, and on top of that, I have a pretty […]
