My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jennifer L. Armentrout's second book in the prequel series to Blood and Ash (Flesh and Fire) was finally released. I was curious about what would happen in A Light in the Flame because the last time we left off, Sera was about to die unless she was Ascended by Nyktos through love. Something we quickly learn he is not capable of because he had that part of his soul removed years ago. Furthermore, the two are still figuring out how to deal with each other after the truth about Sera's upbringing was revealed in A Shadow in the Ember.…

A Plague Tale: Requiem Review

A Plague Tale: Requiem Review

I never reviewed the first video game (Innocence) in this series here on my blog but I have played it. Both games focus on the sibling relationship between Amicia and Hugo. Requiem takes place a few months after the events of Innocence.…

My Thoughts on Finale (Caraval, Book 3) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts on Finale (Caraval, Book 3) by Stephanie Garber

Finale by Stephanie Garber is the final book of the Caraval series, but not the last in this world. It continues in another series that I plan on reading in the future called Once Upon a Broken Heart, which features Jacks. Where the previous books took place during the Caraval and were broken into parts based on the night it took place, this one is broken into four parts: the beginning, the middle, the almost-ending, and the true ending. However, Stephanie Garber warns that not everyone gets a true ending. Which I immediately understood to mean Jacks considering he's going to be in a series of his own. The previous books also only focused on one sister (Scarlett in Caraval and Tella in Legendary), this book switches back and forth between the two.…

My Thoughts on Legendary (Caraval, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts on Legendary (Caraval, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

This book took me a hot moment to read. Not for a lack of interest but because of a book slump. Or what felt like one. I think I've just read so many books on Kindle that reading a physical book feels off at the moment. So, I ended up getting the book on Kindle and finished it within a few days of doing so. Unlike the previous book review I did for Caraval, I'm just sharing my thoughts after reading Legendary by Stephanie Garber. There are some spoilers, but only things that happened or were revealed by the halfway point in the book. Everything after that I'm not going to reveal, so if you wanted to avoid what happens from that point on (plot twists, etc.) it's not ruined for you.…

Looking Back at October 2022

Looking Back at October 2022

This last month has been a rollercoaster. It started off with me not being in the mood to read anything new, and that kind of continued all month. Don't get me wrong, I did read some things as you'll see but mostly I just read segments of previously read books. And I didn't play any video games as I focused the month on Twitch with body painting. Well, I did play Dreamlight Valley but it was still less gaming than I normally do overall.…

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

While I could post a review about every book in The Bonds that Tie series by J Bree, I didn't want to put them down or pause reading to do so. I enjoyed the series that much (spoiler alert). So, I'm just going to combine them all together as I have done with other series that captivated my attention to this extent. I originally discovered this series through TikTok, but only ever heard that they were fantastic without any real details around the plot which I appreciate so I could go into the series without there being spoilers. I love discussing the details of a book as much as the next person especially when it's a good book, but I don't like knowing those details until I've gotten a chance to experience it for myself. Case and point Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, I still haven't finished that series due to the fact I know everything that's going to happen and it makes me not want to pick up the next book. So, with that being said, I'm not going to be going into heavy details about the books, so there will be no spoilers here while I share my thoughts on this series. …

My Thoughts While Reading Caraval (Caraval, Book 1) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts While Reading Caraval (Caraval, Book 1) by Stephanie Garber

It's been a while since I did a review in which I shared my thoughts while reading something. Since Caraval by Stephanie Garber is divided into parts, I thought this would be a fun way to read the book. I've heard good things about it, but not much about the plot. So, I'm going in blind. All I know is that there is magic and a caraval (a game of sorts) involved, which is next to nothing.…

My Thoughts on Kingdom of the Feared (Kingdom of the Wicked, Book 3) by Kerri Maniscalco

My Thoughts on Kingdom of the Feared (Kingdom of the Wicked, Book 3) by Kerri Maniscalco

Kingdom of the Feared is the final installment of the Kingdom of the Wicked trilogy by Kerri Maniscalco. I was looking forward to this book as we were promised to learn all the secrets that had been laid out in the previous two books. As the book opens immediately at the close of the second installment in the trilogy. So, if you don't want spoilers for the previous books in this series, look away as I'm going to be getting into it during my review of this book.…
