My Thoughts on The Ballad of Never After (Once Upon a Broken Heart Trilogy, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts on The Ballad of Never After (Once Upon a Broken Heart Trilogy, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

After finishing the previous book in this trilogy by Stephanie Garber, I knew things were going to get interesting in The Ballad of Never After. Whereas the previous series switched off to a new point of view, this one continues following Evangeline. Before I get into too many details in my opening as I could go on about this book in particular, let me just say I would give The Ballad of Never After a 4.25 out of 5 stars rating. And I'm looking forward to what happens in the final book of the Once Upon a Broken Heart trilogy.…

My Thoughts on Once Upon a Broken Heart (Once Upon a Broken Heart Trilogy, Book 1) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts on Once Upon a Broken Heart (Once Upon a Broken Heart Trilogy, Book 1) by Stephanie Garber

The Once Upon a Broken Heart trilogy takes place in the same world as Stephanie Garber's Caraval trilogy. This book in particular begins around the beginning of Finale when the Fates have been freed from the Destiny Cards and before the conclusion of the book, then there's a time jump to after the events of Finale. If you haven't read the Caraval series, this book will make references to the conclusion of that book but will leave out the details. So, if you go straight into this trilogy without reading Caraval there is missing context for events as it's not elaborated.…

My Thoughts on The Wolf and The Wildflower (Fated Fae, Book 2) by Ella Fields

My Thoughts on The Wolf and The Wildflower (Fated Fae, Book 2) by Ella Fields

The Wolf and the Wildflower by Ella Fields is a new standalone book that takes place in the Fated Fae universe, aka the same world used in The Savage and the Swan. While it is a standalone, characters from that book are featured in this one, including Scythe, Fang, and Dade. It takes place roughly around the same time as The Wolf and The Wildflower, as the war is still happening between the Gold Fae and the Red/Blood Fae. But we also learn that wolf-shifting faeries are not something unique to the Red Fae; those across the sea are also able to do so. So, it was interesting coming back to this world and seeing it through a different perspective as one of the main characters is from across the sea, while the other is Scythe.…

My Ranking of the Pokémon Games

My Ranking of the Pokémon Games

I've spent the vast majority of my life as a Pokemon fan. Is that to say I'm the best at the games? No. Does that mean I know every type matching off the top of my head? No. Does this mean I know every Pokemon and their basic stats? No. But that doesn't diminish how much time I've spent enjoying the games in this franchise. But, before I get into ranking the Pokemon games, I'd like to state that I have not played all of them. So, this will only be my ranking of the ones I've played in my lifetime. I'm going to divide my rankings into four categories: story, difficulty, replay value, and post-game.…

My Thoughts on Zodiac Academy Series by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

My Thoughts on Zodiac Academy Series by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

I finally got around to reading the Zodiac Academy series by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti. I tried my hardest to avoid all spoilers with regard to this series. So far, only 8 of the 9 books in total have been released, with the last coming sometime in the future. They are available right now on Kindle Unlimited. While only eight of the books have been released, the first book was re-released but from the POV of the guys since the first book is solely told from the girls' POV. Every book after that is a mixture of their perspectives, with each POV told from the first POV.…

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.…

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.…
