{Review+Giveaway} Harbor For the Nightingale by Kathleen Baldwin @KatBaldwin

{Review+Giveaway} Harbor For the Nightingale by Kathleen Baldwin @KatBaldwin

Note: This is the fourth book in a series that must be read in order. If you are new to the Stranje House series, check out my review of book one, A School for Unusual Girls HERE, my review of book two,  HERE, and my review of book three HERE ————— Harbor For the Nightingale is the fourth book in the Stranje House series by Kathleen Baldwin. The Stranje House series is my absolute favorite alternative history (with a fantasy element) series of all time. Stranje House is the school that our main characters attend, and it is basically a secret spy school for young ladies with impressive talents. Each of the books is told from one of the five Stranje House girls point of views. Book one was Georgie, book two is Tess,  book three is Jane, and book four is Maya’s story. The series follows a single timeline and the events of the books take place one right after another, so the series must be read in order…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga

{Review+Giveaway} Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga

Glow of the Fireflies is a young adult standalone magic fantasy by Lindsey Duga. Lindsey Duga wrote one of my favorite books of last year- Kiss of the Royal, so to say I was excited about her next book was an understatement. And I am happy to report that I really loved Glow of the Fireflies. I still think Kiss of the Royal is my favorite book of hers, but her writing is so magical that it is hard not to completely fall in love with her characters and her stories. She is one of my newest favorite authors. Next, I think I would love for her to write an epic fantasy romance series. In Glow of the Fireflies wee meet our main character Briony. Briony sets out on a magical adventure to rescue her mother. I think Glow of the Fireflies  is a mixture of magical realism and fantasy, which is a genre I have not read too much of. The magical realism aspect comes in from the books… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Orchid Throne by @JeffeKennedy @SMPRomance @heroesnhearts

{Review+Giveaway} The Orchid Throne by @JeffeKennedy @SMPRomance @heroesnhearts

The Orchid Throne  is the first book in the Forgotten Empires series by Jeffe Kennedy. The Forgotten Empire series is a fantasy series and the first book, The Orchid Throne totally knocked my socks off. I loved this book so much! And the romance…oh the romance. The Orchid Throne was everything that I look for in great fantasy romances. This marks the second 5 star read of mine on the blog this week, which is huge for me! I don’t give out 5 stars too often, and hardly ever to two books in a row. But both The Orchid Throne and Shadow Frost have topped my best of the best in 2019. If you are a fan of fantasy reads, The Orchid Throne needs to be on your TBR list. In the Orchid Throne we meet our main character, Queen Euthalia, or Lia for short. I love reading a story from the perspective of a Queen, and Lia is a fantastic character. She is witty and fiercely protective of her… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Shadow Frost by Coco Ma

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Shadow Frost by Coco Ma

Shadow Frost is a young adult fantasy by Coco Ma. I am so excited that this is the first book in the Shadow Frost series because I loved Shadow Frost and I can’t wait for more. This is a pretty hefty book, with the advanced readers copy clocking in at over 400 pages. I have to say, I loved every page of this book and I kept hoping it was even longer. I can’t even believe that the author wrote this novel when she was only 15! There were so many things that I loved about this book, so let’s jump right in. In Shadow Frost we meet Princess Asterin, who is spunky as all get out and a total riot. I loved her and her feisty spirit. Asterin decides that she needs to go off demon hunting to help her land and people. Which means, we as readers are off on a quest, and you all know that is my favorite type of plotline in a fantasy book. It… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis

Realm of Knights is a young adult fantasy book and is the start of the Knights of the Realm series by author Jennifer Anne Davis. To say I was excited when I first heard about this novel, and series being releases, is a huge understatement. Fantasy is my favorite genre by far, and Jennifer Anne Davis has written one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. (Her Reign of Secrets series is EPICALLY AMAZING, if you have not checked it out already) Bottom line: I was pumped to see a new fantasy series by her and after I have read Realm of Darkness…dare I say…I might have a new favorite series. I loved this book so much! I am already itching for book 2. In Realm of Knights we meet our main character Reid. Reid is the fifth daughter of the Duke of Ellington. Her father is the Duke in a land that only allows title to pass to male heirs, so when Reid’s mom passes away giving birth… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Teeth in the Mist by @DawnKurtagich @theNOVL

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Teeth in the Mist by @DawnKurtagich @theNOVL

Teeth in the Mist is a young adult horror fantasy novel by author Dawn Kurtagich. I will admit that I do not read a ton of novels in the horror genre, but after having read, and absolutely loved, Teeth in the Mist, I may need to rethink this. This novel blew me away. I loved everything about it. I loved the writing, I loved the multiple timelines and points of views, and I really really loved the creepiness. I need to read Dawn’s other books ASAP because Teeth in the Mist is one of the best books I have read this year, and it is certainly the best young adult horror book I have ever read. Teeth in the Mist centers around the story of Mill House and the mountain it was built on/into. To tell the story of Mill house we put all the pieces together through the lives of three different young women in three different time periods. Hermione in the 1500s, Roan in the 1850s and Zoey… Read more »

{Review} Space by Penny Reid

{Review} Space by Penny Reid

Space is the second book in the Laws of Physics series by Author Penny Reid. But to make things a bit confusing, the Laws of Physics series is the second trilogy series in the Hypothesis series. Each of the trilogy follows a new set of characters, but at least one of the main characters is tied to science. And I love a nerdy romance. Especially if Penny Reid is the author. I think you all know by now that she is one of my very favorite authors of all time. I loved the first book, Motion soo much ( you can check out my review HERE) Space picks up a few years after the events from Motion left off, with Mona running off on Abram, and replacing herself with her twin sister Lisa. (if any of this sounds confusing to you, then you need to go back and read motion because this is a series that does need to be read in order.) I loved Motion so much, but I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} MOTION by Penny Reid

Motion is the first book in the Laws of Physics series by Author Penny Reid. But to make things a bit confusing, the Laws of Phsyics series is the second trilogy series in the Hypothesis series. Each of the trilogy follows a new set of characters, but at least one of the main characters is tied to science. And I love a nerdy romance. Especially if Penny Reid is the author. I think you all know by now that she is one of my very favorite authors of all time. And Motion is pretty high up there on the list of favorites as well. I loved this book so much, and I am DYING to get my hands on the second book in the series, which is slated to be released sometime next month. In Motion we meet Mona, who is a twin. Her sister is Lisa, and they are both daughters of celebrities of some kind. But Mona is a celebrity of her own kind (in the science world… Read more »

You all know how much I LOVE this series! It is one of my favorite series of all time. Of all time people!  I feel like this is the type of series that I can read over and over again and love it just the same every time. Even though I have unequivocally loved all three of the other books, I was super nervous to start Lera of Lunos. Not because I didn’t think I wouldn’t love the book, but because I was not ready for the series to end. (I hate reading the… Read more »

Then be sure to check out my review of Analiese Rising as well as enter the awesome giveaway down below! ———– There are several gods in Analiese Rising. Listing my top ten favorite gods and goddesses from the mythologies from around the world was difficult. There are so many that would make number one for me. So I decided to list them in the order of my favorites in the book, and here they are. Sidapa comes from Philipine mythology. He’s the god of death. In the novel, he doesn’t have his power anymore. He’s in love with the Bulan and sees him only during the full moon when the other god can come down to earth.   Oyá is from African She’s an Orisha of winds, lightning, and violent storms, death, and rebirth. She’s a kick butt goddess, and she makes a grand entrance into the story.   Lugh comes from the… Read more »
