A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2)
22, May

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

I’m deeply, truly underwhelmed. 

An Ember in the Ashes is one of my favorite YA fantasy debuts; Sabaa Tahir’s world was mesmerizing yet brutal, and it was so easy to lose myself in the bloody story of an Empire inspired by Greek and Roman culture. Sadly, in A Torch Against the Night I didn’t manage to fully grasp that flare of magic I was confident I’d find.

6+1 Reasons to Read Arrogant Devil 

Cage of Destiny (Reign of Secrets #3)
04, May

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance

Binge read (n.): 

1) When you get so engrossed in a book that you read it in one sitting.

2) To read a book (usually for school) in the course of a day; most times when you were given a long period of time to read the book in the first place.

3) The impulse to finish Reign of Secrets without giving a darn about sleep, work, food and other nuisances, such as zombie apocalypse, alien invasion etc.

Society of Wishes (Wish Quartet, #1)
12, Apr

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Dystopia, New Adult, Paranormal

I didn't intend to write this review.

I was lucky enough to get an ARC, but after I read Society of Wishes back in January I couldn't find the will to write something about it, because I realized that as soon as I finished the last page, I wasn't overwhelmed with emotions like all the other times I finished a book written by Elise Kova. Instead, I felt nothing, and it was devastating because no words can express how much I loved Elise's Air Awakens. Society of Wishes was by no means a bad book. It was simply average, and saying that about Elise breaks my heart.
