Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Amazing ending to my favorite series. In My Opinion: MUST. READ. NOW! When I think of amazing conclusions, ACOWAR stands out. I simply loved the way Maas bookended so many aspects of this series, in a way that felt right and true to the characters and story line. And yet, she also left so many things open, either for readers to draw their own conclusions (if this was… Read more »

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: More contemporary than fantasy, so it was a nice attempt at a magical book. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Becoming Jinn didn’t turn out quite like I was expecting. I was hoping for more from the Jinn/fantasy side of the story and instead we get a more contemporary story than anything else. Yes, the Jinn elements are there, but it’s more so parlor tricks and we’re not… Read more »

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Great start, but some things didn’t work for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try! This was a case where the book starts are strong and so charming, but ends up being an okay read. After reading that synopsis, I was so excited to give this one a read. I love retellings and this sounded like fun. After only a few sentences in, I immediately liked it. There… Read more »
