The Trouble with Unicorns by D.T Dyllin (DNF Review)

🌟 No Rating | DNF 🌟

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours.

I wanted to try really hard to get through this book, but I ended up DNF’ing at 61%. I was over halfway through and I found nothing about this book that made me want to keep reading. I was tempted to DNF from the first chapter, so I’m pretty surprised I managed to make it this far. There will be spoilers.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 5 stars 🌟

If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying over how much this book has broken my heart. Illuminae should honestly should have a disclaimer that it will rip out your heart and you will cry a lot. Illuminae is one of the few books that I went into with high expectations and wasn’t disappointed.

You’ll also enjoy this book if you’re a fan of:

  • Sci-Fi
  • Technology
  • Creative Book Format
  • Books that hit you right in the feels
  • Books that make you cry
  • Fast-paced read

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart (ARC Review)

🌟3.5 stars 🌟

I thought the synopsis sounded interesting, but the story itself was unoriginal. This book was well written, but every plot twist could be seen from a mile away for anyone that avidly reads YA.

I think this book would be great for people that enjoy:

  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  • Instalove
  • Love Triangles
  • Strong Women Empowering Women

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

🌟4.5 stars🌟

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this book on Goodreads, so I decided to give it a try for myself. I loved the concept of Caraval and learning more about the game and how it’s played. Although, I was annoyed by Scarlett for the entirety of this book, it was an enjoyable read overall.

To start off I think that this book would be great for people that enjoy:

  • Action in the first chapter
  • Fast-paced novels
  • Carnivals
  • Mysterious characters
  • “Bad Boy” trope
  • Scavenger hunts

Demon: Brimstone and Blood by Ellis Everley & Ellen South

🌟2 stars🌟

This book is a short story that I received from Hidden Gems and that I have chosen to voluntarily review. I am still not quite sure how to gauge short stories, because I love books with a lot of world building and character development which is something I have found that short stories lack. This lead to a two star rating of this book for me.

Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall

🌟 3 stars 🌟

Romance novel covers always make me a little uncomfortable because of their tendency to be quite revealing. Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall was a quick read that took me a few hours since it was only a little under 200 pages. I really just wanted something to read between The Cruel Prince and when my copy of Scythe would come in the mail, so this suited perfectly. For such a short book, it kind of fell short as well, as I would only give this book three out of five stars, since everything was rushed and I was not the biggest fan of the main character.
