I love a good retelling and this one has been on my TBR pile for a while. I read Melissa’s Lunar Chronicles series last year and I LOVED it! So when I saw this was on audio I just had to grab it. This book is set before Alice in […]

If you don’t know already I am a HUGE Beauty and the Beast fan and I love a good retelling! I saw this one on a Goodreads list so I used one of my Audible credits to purchase it. I really enjoyed this one. This may be a re-telling but […]

Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken

A Curse So Dark and Lonely was one of my top reads in 2019! I love a Beauty and the Beast retelling and this is up there with some of the best. I have been waiting for this for what seems like forever. The last book was told almost exclusively […]

Review: Scarlet

After I devoured Cinder I jumped straight into Scarlet. I am a sucker for retellings and this series does it so well. Marissa puts her own twist on these much-loved classic stories. These are not your damsels in distress let me tell you. These girls are kicking ass and fighting […]

I love a retelling and I have heard lots about this series. Thankfully this did not disappoint. This book is set in the future, in New Beijing. A fourth world war has happened and we are now in peace times, well at least between the countries on Earth. Yes not […]

Blog Tour Review: Blinding Night

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author. This is the first audiobook tour I have been on and I was quite excited about that. I have read two of Chantal’s previous books and I loved them both. Sadly I didn’t love this one as much. Straight from […]
