Top Ten Tuesday – April 4, 2017: Ten Grishaverse Candles You Need To Own

TOP TEN TUESDAY April 4, 2017 It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was fandom related and with the mention of merch, I immediately went to candles! The other day for a #bookstagram photo prompt, I ended up photographing my Dregs-inspired candles, which is a lot and […]

Grisha Novellas: The Demon in the Wood (#0.1) & Little Knife (#2.6) – Leigh Bardugo

THE DEMON IN THE WOOD was one of the short stories I was most anticipating. While I love Leigh Bardugo’s Ravkan folk tales, I’m sure we were all dying to know more about The Darkling! I think the thing I loved the most about this short story was of course, more information about The Darkling, […]

Ruin and Rising (Grisha Trilogy #3) – Leigh Bardugo

I put off writing this review for a while. The Grisha Trilogy has been one of my favorites for the past few years and it’s hard to come to terms with it coming to an end. The Grisha Trilogy really became the first series in at least five years that I really felt such a […]

Re-Read Review: Siege and Storm (Grisha Trilogy #2) – Leigh Bardugo

SIEGE AND STORM was an interesting re-read but ultimately not as exciting as the first time around – don’t get me wrong, it was still amazing, but I was in total awe when I first read this book over a year ago. (WOW, over a year!?) It was really fun being able to discover everything […]

Re-read: Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) – Leigh Bardugo

This was quite the interesting re-read for me… I think this was the first re-read in which I had two totally different expectations going into it: When I first picked up SHADOW AND BONE almost two years ago (!!!), I was not a fantasy reader. I think I had read Graceling first and that was about […]

Fan Art: Game of Thrones Sigils for Leigh Bardugo’s The Grisha Trilogy

A couple weeks ago, Alyssa was reading SHADOW AND BONE for the first time so naturally, we got in a grand discussion about it. We looked up all of the Grisha powers and decided which ones we would be (I’m a Squaller, in case you were wondering). I was looking at Leigh Bardugo’s website with […]

Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) – Leigh Bardugo

OMG, YOU GUYS. Siege & Storm. SIEGE AND STORM!! It was amazing. And now I need to write a review for it… Where do I even start? So right off the bat, I was in love with SIEGE & STORM. This book hits the ground running with lots of exciting action, reuniting readers immediately with Alina & […]

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) – Leigh Bardugo

Once again I find myself singing the praises of high fantasy! I’d seen tons of praise for this book pretty much everywhere and after seeing Leigh Bardugo at Anderson’s Bookshop first on the Fierce Reads tour in June and again at Anderson’s on August 30th (although I actually finished the book before then!), just seeing her personality and hearing her talk about the […]

The Midnight Lie (The Midnight Lie #1) – Marie Rutkoski

Okay, I’m going to be a little harsh on this because The Winner’s Trilogy is one of my all-time favorite series, full of cleverness, intrigue, and romantic tension that is a killer. While THE MIDNIGHT LIE is a very different feel than the original Winner’s Trilogy, that’s not what I had a problem with. I’m […]

Call Down the Hawk (Dreamer #1) – Maggie Stiefvater

I was super excited but also super nervous to read CALL DOWN THE HAWK! I knew I’d love it but I was also scared to read about new characters and have some focus away from the Gangsey. Thankfully I was able to jump in and start listening to the audiobook right away, super excited that […]
