Interview with Kasie West

Interview with Kasie West

Bookish 1

Oh this interview is going to be awesome!! So I was contacted a while ago and asked hey, are you interested in interviewing Kasie West?!! Of course I was!! And here it is :) West's newest release, Split Second, is the sequel to Pivot Point and follows Addie after the life-changing decision that she made that the end of the first book. It's also my pick for February's MUST READ! She's also recently released a contemporary novel, The Distance Between Us, and is releasing another contemporary, On the Fence, later this year. On the Fence is gorgeous. You will love...

Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson

Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

The things I know about Viking can be summed by Marvel comics and the two Thor movies. Basically, nothing. Swords of Good Men caught my eye because, at the time, I hadn’t heard of any other honest-to-goodness Viking-esque books around. It’s a brilliant, fast-paced début that I can see a…

Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

Reviews 5 ★★★½

An impressive tale exploring the consequences of a revolution against a monarchy, Promise of Blood begins the story of the man who overthrows his King and is left to with a kingdom on the brink of war. I think it’s an admirable début, set in an impeccably created world and…

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

Reviews 0 ★★

I didn’t know what to expect from The Nightmare Affair. I love Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers and was kind of hoping for a similarly dark and mysterious story featuring a Nightmare who isn’t like Sabine. However, this book is more … frivolous that I’d hoped, and I ended up disappointed….

The Tower Broken by Mazarkis Williams

The Tower Broken by Mazarkis Williams

Reviews 1

The Tower Broken is the final book in the Tower and Knife trilogy by Mazarkis Williams, a series I have adored since the first book came out. This book rounds out the story well and answers all the questions and curiosities I’d had, and in general, does a much better…

Be My Enemy by Ian McDonald

Be My Enemy by Ian McDonald

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Taking up soon after Planesrunner, Be My Enemy follows Everett Singh as he jumps across parallel universes to rescue his father, with the help of the crew of the airship Everness. I really enjoyed this novel and feel it’s even better than the first in terms of action and world-building….

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I rarely get to go into a book with no expectations what-so-ever, but I picked up The Archived on a whim at the library, because it was a relatively new hardcover edition and the cover looked interesting. From the moment I read the first page, I was hooked – the…

Sea Change by S.M. Wheeler

Sea Change by S.M. Wheeler

Reviews 1

Wheeler’s début will leave you breathless, exhilarated, and a little disturbed. This gorgeous tale of a young girl who sacrifices everything to save her friend (a Kraken!) from imprisonment touched my heart, and I didn’t want it to end. Sadly, it did end, as all great books do, but I…
