Book Review: Bewilderness

Genre: YA SciFi, YA Dystopian Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wow! I don’t actually know what it feels like to be in the middle of a tornado, but I’d imagined it is similar to what I felt while reading Bewilderness by Kevin Cox!

Book Review: Stepsister

Genre: YA Fairytale Retelling Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ The synopsis of Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly drew me in right away. Cinderella’s stepsister cuts off her toes to try to fit into the glass slipper?

Book Review: Our Violent Ends

Genre: YA Historical Fantasy Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Okay, so if you didn’t read my review of These Violent Delights, I recommend reading that first, and also don’t read this review if you don’t want to be spoiled for book 1!

Book Review: Tiger Queen

Genre: YA Fantasy Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tiger Queen by Annie Sullivan has been on my TBR for a while, so it was perfect that it was one of the books included in a reading challenge I participated in during November.

Book Review: Firekeeper’s Daughter

Genre: Mystery, Suspense Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Clearly, I caved into the hype about Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley, and for once I was not disappointed! I’m not going to lie, 90% of the reason I picked up this book was because of the cover and because I wrongfully thought it was a fantasy novel. However, I’mContinue reading “Book Review: Firekeeper’s Daughter”
