Heart on Fire

Heart on Fire - Amanda Bouchet ⭐️2.5 stars⭐️

A crushed spark never ignites. That's not how you fan the flame.

That was disappointing. The ending was a big fat "meh" (and I'm being nice here) and if there is ever another book or a novella after this to tie up the huge amount of lose ends, I might come back and fix my rating. But right now I'm angry. I honestly kept reading this for the Beta Team and none of them got any closure. Not cool.

And what the hell was that thing with Kato? I'm furious! And what about the rest of my babies? Ugh! There better be more..


PLAY - Piper Lawson ⭐️4.5 stars⭐️

Everything's a game, Payton. That's the big secret. Work, life, sex.
If you're not playing one game, you're playing another.
If you can't tell you're playing a game? You're losing.

Breath of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles Book 2)

Breath of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles Book 2) - Amanda Bouchet ⭐️3.5 stars⭐️

A heart of iron means I do not break. You cannot break me. I may not be the strongest, or the fastest, or the best, but I will fight. I will fight for everyone I love. I will fight for myself.

A Promise of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles Book 1)

A Promise of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles Book 1) - Amanda Bouchet ⭐️3 stars⭐️

There's magic in spoken language. It's binding. There's a reason people ask for someone else's word.
Every sentence a person utters can be a promise—or a betrayal.

So.. Griffin and Cat are stupid. I sound like a 5 year old but I can't like them and that's a problem when it's the main characters. I'm taking one star out for each of them and giving it three for the rest of the Beta Team because they are now my babies and I think I love them.

Cat. Griffin. Please be less stupid in the next books because I love Greek Mythology and you're kinda ruining it for me.

Birthday Girl

Birthday Girl  -  Penelope Douglas ⭐️4 stars⭐️

It's always the same wish.
Every candle. Every time.
I want a life I never want to take a vacation from.
That's my goal.

Gah! I love this woman and I will read anything she writes.

My only issue with this one was Pike. The hot piece of ass let me down and made me want to smack him on his stupid head. If there was an option to do that and get it out of my system it would be a 5 star read.
Loved it.

Daughter of the Siren Queen

Daughter of the Siren Queen - Tricia Levenseller ⭐️4 stars⭐️

You're going to need to remember that we're not only women, we're pirates.

You wouldn't give a second thought to a couple of men aboard your ship behaving in such a way or talking such talk. You do not get to judge us more harshly for being women.

I have twenty-eight excellent girls aboard this ship, and their pasts have shaped them. Just as yours has shaped you. And every single one of them, down to little Roslyn, deserves your respect.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling 5 stars

"Six years to the day we met, Harry, d'yeh remember it?"

"Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him. "Didn't you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig's tail, and tell me I was a wizard?"

"I forget the details."

The Last Namsara

The Last Namsara - Kristen Ciccarelli ⭐️5 stars⭐️

Wasn't that what all stories were?
Wasn't that what made them so dangerous?
Every one of us is born with a song buried deep in our hearts. A song all our own. And our mission in life is to find that song.

I loved this so much I'm so happy!!

Daughter of the Pirate King

Daughter of the Pirate King - Tricia Levenseller ⭐️4 stars⭐️

Even a man who's spent his whole life at sea has reason to fear her when she's angry.
But not I.
I sleep soundly. Listening to her music. The sea watches over me.
She protects her own.

A Strange Hymn

A Strange Hymn - Laura Thalassa DNF

Another bad-ass turned special snowflake. sigh

Callypso was an awesome siren PI and now I spent half the book with her just being clueless and worrying that she's not pretty anymore. And of course, let's not forget the whole lot of nothing that's happening.

I liked the first book. I found the story and characters really interesting and I picked this one up right after I finished, but the more I read the more "meh" I felt.

Once again, I blame my expectations. maybe I'll give it another shot in the future.


Rhapsodic - Laura Thalassa ⭐️4 stars⭐️

"One day you'll have to pay all those back. Are you scared now?"

"I would be if you weren't wearing your hair in a girly little ponytail," I say, reaching for the ends of his white hair.

"It's not good manners to taunt a fairy. We have notoriously thin skin." Despite the threat, his eyes spark with excitement.

"I'm sorry," I say, "your ponytail is very masculine. I feel like I'm going to grow a beard just looking at it"

"Mouthy thing."

To Kill a Kingdom

To Kill a Kingdom - Alexandra Christo ⭐️3.5 stars⭐️

I've made a mistake. It started with a prince, as most stories do.

I think not going into this with super duper expectations was really smart.

I enjoyed the book but what I really didn't like was the ending.. That final battle? I needed more from that. I mean, it's the final battle. I wanna be at the edge of my seat, you know? And then how we get everything wrapped up in a couple pages in the end. Yeah, I wasn't happy about that part either.

But whatever, the story was fun, there was a pirate/prince and sirens and a cool ship and honestly? I had fun reading it. So there you go.
*sips coffee*


Opal - Maggie Stiefvater ⭐️5 stars⭐️

It was funny how a dream really just contained the absolute best and absolute worst parts of the animal world. She'd been so afraid of the absolute worst that she'd forgotten how she missed the absolute best.
