Book hangovers are the worst! I finished Heartless by Marissa Meyer the other day and I’m still trying to process everything. The characters, the world building, the plot, everything. I originally bought this because the cover is gorgeous underneath the book jacket. It is by far the best cover I have ever seen on a book!! I mean, just check out the black and red checkerboard with a crown for the king on the front. The same pattern appears on the back, but instead of a crown for the king, it’s a joker’s hat.

Be sure to check out my review for the previous books here.

Have you ever felt such sadness when a series you’ve come to love has finally come to an end? Well, that’s the case with this. “The Returning” is the third and final installment of The Seers Trilogy. This wasn’t Rachelle Dekker’s, daughter of Ted Dekker,best work. While I have mixed feelings (you’ll see why later), it was an excellent wrap up. Read the rest of this entry

When I first picked this up, I wasn’t sure what to think. It sounded like a really interesting read, but it is one of the most hyped up books EVER. Everyone has been telling me I have to read this and it’s constantly showing up in my Instagram newsfeed. The cover for the hardback is also super cool. While it took a little bit for me to enjoy it, I have to say that I LOVED THIS BOOK! Read the rest of this entry

Genre: Fantasy / Paranormal / Romance / Young Adult / Science Fiction

Series: The Sentenia, Book 1

Let’s just be honest, I was automatically drawn in by the cover. It’s gorgeous and makes you wonder what it’s about. I enjoy books that have young teens feeling different from the world and discovering they have powers. Lost in Thought is very different from most books because while it does take place at a boarding school with teens who have too much freedom and money, that isn’t the sole purpose of the book.

Oh my! Where do I even begin? This was pure awesomeness. I hadn’t read the previous books in the series so I wondered if I was going to need to read them before beginning this. You know, so I won’t get lost and confused. I didn’t! Don’t get me wrong, I will most definitely be reading the prior books, but I didn’t get lost or confused.

25252994The Shock of Night by Patrick W. Carr

Release Date: November 2015

Publisher: Bethany House

ISBN: 9780764213465

Genre: Fiction/Fantasy

Series: The Darkwater Saga

The Shock of the Night is a must read for any fantasy lover. Professionally written, full of creativity, fantasy and adventure, will make you feel as if you entered a completely different world. It is deep, dark, and downright depressing at times, but it is an enjoyable read nonetheless.

Although, not exactly considered a Christian Fiction novel as it is a world where God does not seem to exist, there are some elements. For example, the book is heavily set on gifts or talents that God (also known as Aer in their world) gives. There are gifts or talents for almost everything ranging from musical, the ability to design, swordsmanship, and so on.
