Kingdom of Night, Kingdom of Day

Anyone who knows me knows that I've been obsessed with A.G. Howard's books since I first picked up Splintered years ago. So when she announced the title of her book coming out in 2019, I waited. And waited. And it felt like I was waiting for centuries until I assumed the worst and that I'd … Continue reading Kingdom of Night, Kingdom of Day

Hazy Shades of Nightmares

Your energy, dark tendrils made of everything terrible, caresses his hazy shades of nightmares. How revolting it is to see you two pretend that you’re compatible. As if you two jive on a mystical level. Just because your magic matches doesn’t mean that you two do. Monsters. Copyright © 2018 by Nita Pan All rights … Continue reading Hazy Shades of Nightmares

Truth Requires Thorns

Midnight tales and dangerous magic. The very minute I saw the cover and read the inside flap, I knew it was love.  I've been wanting to read a Leigh Bardugo book.  Heck, I've owned Shadow and Bone for years but I have yet to break the binding.  Figuring that this would be a good way … Continue reading Truth Requires Thorns

Boy Meets Girl, Girl Murders People

Following my discovery of Young Adult novels back in 2010, I spent the next couple of years reading and rereading Diane Duane's Young Wizards series and whatever Holly Black and Rachel Caine book I could get my hands on.  I recall having just finished a book about a fae disguised as a human when the spine … Continue reading Boy Meets Girl, Girl Murders People
