My Thoughts on A Cage of Crystal (Prophecy of the Forgotten Fae, Book 2) by Tessonja Odette

My Thoughts on A Cage of Crystal (Prophecy of the Forgotten Fae, Book 2) by Tessonja Odette

The second book in the Prophecy of the Forgotten Fae, called A Cage of Crystal, by Tessonja Odette is a rewritten version of Veil of Mist (Lela Trilogy). This was the first ever series by the author. While the book may be fully rewritten there are plot changes, name changes, and other modifications. I never got around to reading the original trilogy though it had been on my TBR before it was unpublished. So, I've gotten to read this story fresh.…

My Thoughts on Queen of Myth and Monsters (Adrian x Isolde, Book 2) by Scarlett St. Clair

My Thoughts on Queen of Myth and Monsters (Adrian x Isolde, Book 2) by Scarlett St. Clair

Scarlett St. Clair's Queen of Myth and Monsters is the second book in her Adrian x Isolde series. Unlike the first book, we get multiple points of view. I read the first book in this series over a year ago and remember really enjoying it. So I had high expectations for this book. As I share my thoughts, I'll try not to give too many spoilers, but there may be a few (though I tried to be as vague as possible regarding the plot while still sharing my opinions on things).…

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.…

Reading Guide for The World of Solaria by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

Reading Guide for The World of Solaria by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

The World of Solaria by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti contains three separate series: Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac, Zodiac Academy, and Darkmore Penitentiary. There's no right way to read these series but there are two different recommended ways you could go about it. The first one is chronological order and the other is publication order. So, I thought I would share each of those here. These lists include the short stories/novellas for Zodiac Academy. However, the limited edition bonus chapters that were only available for one month on Kindle or through the Facebook group, are not on this list since those aren't easily accessible to everyone, or required additional sign-up. But just as a note, there are several of these that are not included.…

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.…

Reading Guide for the Ruby Dixon Universe

Reading Guide for the Ruby Dixon Universe

Ruby Dixon has a lot of books released and a good majority of them are connected. Now, I haven't read a good majority of these (all the Risdaverse books) as they just didn't interest me at the time. But some of those characters do make appearances in the rest of the universe. This universe is expanding with another spin-off series for the Ice Planet, Not-Hoth, and more books in the Corsairs series, so I'm sure it's going to be more back and forth. But as of December 2022 here is how the books connect as far as the timeline goes.…

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.…
