All the Crooked Saints | A YA Book Review

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater This book is magical. I know, I know. All of Maggie’s work is magical, but this is magical in a different sort of way. So much so that at times I wondered what the author may have been grappling with when she wrote it. The story is third person narration and follows multiple characters, the central characters being Beatriz Soria, a girl without feelings who comes from a lineage of saints, and Pete Wyatt, a sweet guy looking to prove his worth. Early on their paths cross and Beatriz is soon questioning everything she’s ever known about herself and her family. Part love story, part tall tale, and all magic, this story is a bit different than Maggie’s

Amid Stars and Darkness (A YA Book Review)

Amid Stars and Darkness by Chani Lynn Feener This is the first book in the Xenith Trilogy and follows Earthling Delaney Grace as she is mistaken for the princess of Xenith and taken from Earth, along with the inevitable fallout. I really enjoyed this book! It was light-hearted with great banter, but then also had an action-filled plot (let's just say not everyone is a fan of the princess). I kept turning pages needing to know what happened. The quasi-villain Trystan has major Darkling vibes, but I'm definitely a fan of the main love interest, Ander (Commander) Ruckus. That's actually how I came across this book... Chani contacted my candle shop for a custom order of Ruckus and Trystan candle

The Language of Thorns (YA Book Review)

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo I really loved this. It's dark and twisted in the vein of old, original fairy tales, and it is oddly delightful and creepy. Yet we are graced with both familiar human things (Hansel and Gretel, a nutcracker, mermaids and the like), as well as Grishaverse novelties (countries, cities, drinks, and mythology) that readers familiar with the world will recognize. The art is stunning and one of my favorite things was looking for the added details once I turned the page. The images expand every other page and converge at the end of the story leading to a full page illustration (with the exception of the last story which converges, diverges, and converges agai

Serafina and the Splintered Heart (A MG Book Review)

Serafina and the Splintered Heart by Robert Beatty I love the Serafina books! This is the last one that directly follows Serafina as a protagonist, but I look forward to the Willa books! So this review is a little difficult because in the author's note Mr. Beatty asked for specific things not to be mentioned as it is important that the reader only know as much as Serafina at any given time. Therefore, this will be a pretty short review. Twelve-year-old Serafina's latest adventure involves more of the infamous Black Cloak and for a good 2/3 of the book Serafina faces her most difficult challenge yet. Familiar friends: Waysa, Braedan, Pa, and Gideon re-emerge and the story-telling is spot on a
