Indigo Dusk by Kristy Nicolle

A fantastic read, the second book I gave five stars to this year, is Indigo Dusk by Kristy Nicolle. This is an own voice book featuring a main character with Ehler-Danlos Syndrome; it’s indie published, and it’s just the kind of book that hits the spot. The world of fantasy romance is currently filled with…

The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Remember when I said that From Blood And Ash was a great New Adult series? Yeah. You can scratch that. The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout took a huge dump on me. Cover from Amazon ⭐⭐.5/5: was it really okay? The fact alone that it took me exactly one month to finish…

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

I would like to ask Maas–how do you manage to turn even an adult book in a massive YA trope? A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas is a novel that held many promises, one that I firmly believed I’d give 5 stars by the time it was over, and yet, I find…

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

This is where things get absolutely ridiculous. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas was defined “lush, romantic and ferocious” and even “spellbinding” by another NYT bestselling author and I am trying to figure out if they’ve read the book. Image from Amazon ⭐⭐/5: it was okay (or was it?) I guess…

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the second book in her Blood and Ash series. The story picks up right where we left off in From Blood and Ash, and overall, this is a book I couldn’t put down. While there were bits that didn’t convince me or left me…

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas is the third installment in her Court series. This is yet another book of hers with astounding reviews that I couldn’t grasp or bring myself to fully enjoy, but it wasn’t as terrible as the previous volume. Image by Amazon ⭐⭐⭐: I ‘liked’ it It…

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

F*ck me is what I want to say when I think of this book. F*ck me for giving SJM a chance and trying to figure out whether she truly has harmful representation in her books or not. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas is a book that left a bitter taste…

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Finally, a fantasy romance that I could connect with. From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout is a novel that I didn’t expect was going to have vampires in it but it sure was a great surprise! This time, the “BookTok made me do it” is not a regretful statement. This book is indie…

Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight

Let’s talk about an indie erotica book and one I actually gave four stars to! Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight is another book that was entirely a “BookTok made me do it” but it had a pretty average/bad reputation. This is a dark romance, mafia novel, filled with sex scenes. It also deals with…

No Man Can Tame by Miranda Honfleur

Do you like romance books? I personally don’t but I was recommended No Man Can Tame by Miranda Honfleur on Twitter and the premise sounded good (not to mention the title). This is an indie book of great quality in terms of writing and editing so I certainly didn’t regret purchasing it. Cover from Amazon….
