Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

I read the inside cover of this book before passing judgement on the cover itself. I'd been burned before. The synopsis stated that the pages within held "a feminist story," which was something I could get behind. I was so eager to read about two badass babes taking over a kingdom. Summary Lynet is a… Continue reading Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel sounded new. Like I hadn't heard this story before. Like maybe it had something to offer that every YA Paranormal Fiction author had previously left out. The synopsis sounded creepy. The cover was gorgeous. I, however, was disappointed. Summary Angie Dovage is a pretty normal girl with a… Continue reading Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

Reading the synopsis for this book, I wasn't sure I would like Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. It sounded like a meager fairy tale. Since the cover was beautiful and plastered with appraisals that made reading it seem worthwhile, I decided to take a gamble. Never let me into a casino, folks, because I will never… Continue reading Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

I absolutely LOVE the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. It is one of the reasons why, as a child, I would often tell people I wanted to be a pirate when I grew up. (And, if I’m being honest, I still tell people this.) The first two movies in this franchise are incredible, and it… Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
