{Release Day Review} We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

{Release Day Review} We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

We Hunt the Flame is a young adult fantasy by Hafsah Faizal. I should point out that I have known Hafsah for several years now, ever since she was a book blogger and then a graphic designer in the book community. I have been a big fan of hers since day one, so when I heard she is writing a book, I knew I had to get a copy ASAP! And when I heard it was going to be an epic fantasy, I was even more excited. We Hunt the Flame is the first book in the Sands of Arawiya series, and I have to say…it did not disappoint. This book is a long one. It clocks in at almost 500 pages, and it sets up what is going to be a crazy awesome fantasy series. I am already salivating for the second book. In We Hunt the Flame we meet Zafira, who hides as a male hunter at the start of the novel. I will admit that it took… Read more »

{Review} Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane @LindseyAuthor

{Review} Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane @LindseyAuthor

People throw around the “U” word in reviews all the time. Unique. But I can without a doubt confidently say that The Evidence of Things Not Seen earns every bit of the word Unique. Evidence of Things Not Seen centers around a very bright, socially awkward teen that disappears in a small town. We never actually get to meet the teen- Tommy, but the whole book is told about people that either find things of his or knew him in some way. Some of the chapters connected easily to him and his disappearance, while others are more glimpses into others lives and have a looser connection and are more philosophical in nature. Some of the chapters felt like a stream of conscious narrative. The parts where they were talking to the police and you only got their side of the conversation. I also really enjoyed the excerpts from Tommy’s journal in between each chapter. It left everything very open to what really happened to Tommy. There are endless possibilities, which… Read more »
