Just for Clicks [Kara McDowell]; Throwback Thursday

Gosh, I feel like it was forever ago that I read Just for Clicks by Kara McDowell. And honestly, it was a pretty decent book. I can't recall off the top of my head what rating I gave it, but I definitely didn't hate this read or anything. Now, I'm not in love with it and this…

A Court of Thorns and Roses [Sarah J. Maas]; Throwback Thursday

I remember feeling shocked that I really enjoyed this story when I finished it. I had avoided the series for a while after deciding I really didn't like Maas' writing in the first book of her other series. I was pleasantly surprised about how well-done the majority of A Court of Thorns and Roses was. Out of…

The Princess Saves Herself in this One [Amanda Lovelace]; Throwback Thursday

Honestly, I didn't like this book. I know it was incredibly popular--probably still is--but it just seemed so lackluster and very much not a portrayal of decent poetry. My biggest problem with this book lies in the fact that it reads like someone in high school writing poetry even though they don't actually have a…

Stage Kiss [M. F. Lorson]; Throwback Thursday

I liked Stage Kiss by M. F. Lorson way more than I actually thought I would.

Well, I really enjoyed it in the long run, though I'll…

Spin the Dawn [Elizabeth Lim]; Throwback Thursday

I remember really liking this book at first. And I remember being rather excited about having the ability to read it as an ARC. That's without even thinking about how utterly beautiful the cover is. And, to be fair, Spin the Dawn by Elisabeth Lim is a really good book. The plot was fun, the quest…

Daughter of the Pirate King [Tricia Levenseller]; Throwback Thursday

Ironically, despite the fact that I do recognize Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller as a well-written book, I just did not like it at all. And I think what it came down to for me was character voice. I could not get past how much I hated Alosa. She was massively annoying in…

Arnica the Duck Princess [Ervin Lázár]; Throwback Thursday

I loved this book. It's such a silly cutesy fairy tale, but my gosh was it fun. Arnica the Duck Princess is a wonderful story that I began and finished within the span of a day and spent a good deal of time squealing over. If you've not read it, I feel you're sorely missing out. Now,…
