A Conjuring of Light ( A YA Book Review)

A Conjuring of Light VE Schwab 3.8 out of 5 bumped up to 4 stars on GoodReads Short Review I will start off by saying that ACOL was definitely the best book of the three in this series. And thank goodness, as it came in at 620 pages. There was lots of action, however the last 100 pages kind of dragged and I found myself just wanting to be done, but that’s the result of me not totally enjoying this series overall. The Good Kell, Alucard, and Rhy oh my! Even Holland is an impressively complex character with a great arc throughout the series. I loved the concept of magic and the alternate Londons. I’m a huge fan of light overcoming dark, which was a central theme to ACOL. The Not-So-Good This s

A Gathering of Shadows (A YA Book Review)

3.5/5 stars but not enough saving grace to bump to 4stars. Sorry (shrugs). I had very high expectations for this series going on. I was pumped. I love magic, elements, alternate realities...and yet something keeps missing the mark. In ADSOM, the last 100 pages pretty much saved the book. And AGOS is very much the same. The first 100 pages blew my mind! Pirates! Kick ass, hot, mysterious captain! And then....nothing happens for like 300 pages. No action. Lots of thinking, speculating, and plotting. But nothing to drive the story forward. Then...again...the last 100 pages are great and action-filled, ending on a cliffhanger. Two things that bothered me: 1. How long it took Lila and Kell to cro

A Darker Shade of Magic ( A YA Book Review)

A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab So this book was a little crazy for me. I'm not sure if it's because I've seen it all over Bookstagram and I had lofty expectations or what. It took me a good 300 of 400 pages to get into the story. Now, I loved the world building throughout and I really liked Kell (he just seems sweet and he smells like flowers and grass and something clean) as well as Rhy (these kinds of stories need the comic relief). I did not like the Danes (they got what they deserved) and I didn't like Lila....at first. I was hoping my dislike of Lila would translate into a strong character arc and it did. Around the masquerade is when the tough/stubborn/selfish/immature facade see
