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.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

🌟 5 stars 🌟

For some reason I have had the urge to read this book for nearly half a year now, but it always had 490129321 holds at the library. The urge got too strong, so I ended up just buying the book and it definitely did not disappoint. I was oddly drawn to this book and it has ended up being one of my favorites! This book had quite a few plot twists that shocked me to the point I put the book down for a bit and just stared as the realizations hit. Moreover, this book made me think a lot about morality, death, and humanity. Definitely five out of five stars. Also, minor spoilers once again, but nothing drastic to the story.

Failsafe by Anela Deen (ARC Review)

🌟 4 stars 🌟

This story was so cute overall! I loved seeing the character development in Sol and Echo as well as watch their relationship progress. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars, just because I wish the world building was better. I felt like I was randomly thrust into this world with all this technical jargon without adequate information leading up to it. There are some minor spoilers in my review and thank you Hidden Gems for the free ARC of this book!

Furyborn by Claire Legrand (ARC Review)

🌟 5 stars 🌟

Happy release day! I received an ARC of this book last week from Netgalley and I devoured it. I have never read a book quite like this before; it felt like I was reading a prequel and the first book in a series simultaneously but Claire Legrand somehow made it work. Definitely one of my favorite books of all time now. Furyborn deserves all the stars, so five out of five stars to me! I’ll try to keep my review as spoiler-free as possible, but there might be possible minor ones so read at your own risk.
