Renegades Blog Tour (Super Villainous Playlist + Review)

If you’re looking for the Renegades, you’ve come to the wrong place. Today, it’s all about the Anarchists. Look. We know what the Renegades SAY they are, but they aren’t as squeaky clean as they pretend to be. They act like we’re the evil villains, but I could tell you about all sorts of things they do behind the scenes that they hide from the non-prodigies they govern. If you’re going to be a villain, you should just own it. That’s why I prefer we return to the Age of Anarchy. It wasn’t perfect, by any means, but at least more »

Book Review: Winter

It’s difficult to review the last book of a four book series. Especially without talking about anything that happened in books one-three. So there will probably be some spoilers in this review. But rest assured, I will absolutely make sure that they are properly under spoiler tags. Except for the trigger warning. That needs to be there. That said, if you can’t control yourself from peeking, that is so not my fault. Also, if you still don’t want to read it anyway, I completely understand. I really liked Cinder (book one). I liked but didn’t love Scarlet (book two) because more »

Book Review: Cress

I gave this book another high rating–something I’ve found myself doing a lot lately. But I keep picking up great books! Haha. I actually don’t want to go into a lot of details when it comes to Cress since it’s the third installment and it could give out potential spoilers. I can say that it’s been the best of the series so far, and in this installment there are lot of unanswered questions answered for the reader. My biggest problem with this book was Cress, the character, in general. I may be the black sheep but I just wasn’t a more »

Book Review: Cinder

I have a confession to make. Ever since the release of Cinder, basically everyone I know—even my IRL best friend that doesn’t read as much/is hard to please with books—has been on my case about starting this series, recommending it left and right, and I’d been extremely apprehensive to pick it up. To be honest, I didn’t think it’d totally be my thing. I just kept reading the summary and thinking “I don’t knowwwww…” and would continue putting it off. Finally, I caved and picked it up. After about maybe the fifteenth or so person told me I just HAD more »

Book Review: Fairest

This review is probably going to come off as confusing to a lot of you. With the high rating, you can trust that really, really enjoyed this surprise installment to one of my favorite series, but at the same time, my favorite character has been totally ruined in my eyes and that makes for a difficult review-writing process. Levana – Snow White’s Evil Queen – has been my favorite character from the moment she walked on the page. I love villains, and I especially love female villains. Of course, the Evil Queen’s origin story in the old fairy is a more »

Book Review: Cress by Mariss Meyer

Wow. This series just gets better and better. I still think that Scarlet is my favorite book of the series overall, but the characterizations in Cress go above and beyond what I ever expected from this series. I’ve heard complaints from reviewers that didn’t like the character of Cress, and I just don’t agree at all. Perhaps it’s because I see a lot of myself in her (growing up as an only child and spending quite a bit of it isolated and sheltered), but I thought she was wonderful. Naive, lonely, and eccentric, yes, but also incredibly brave and determined. more »
