Kick-Ass Girls? Yes Please!

Avenged by Amy Tintera 4/5 stars I don't know where Amy Tintera has been all my life with her fricken┬áamazing female protagonists. I LOVE them. I love all her characters, but the female characters she creates I think really show the strength and power of girls without losing the vulnerability they need to seem real.... Continue Reading →


This girl’s got thorns

The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh 4/5 stars YES. YES. YES. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This book was so good. I was so worried about all the characters and that Adhieh would do something that would ruin my heart. I actually thought "don't do it. Don't do it" so many times.... Continue Reading →

I’ll never read again

This book double-crossed me

Crossing Ebenezer Creek by Tonya Bolden 3/5 stars I don't know that I'd recommend this book to anyone. Not that it was bad, but it was not at all what I expected.

The Wrath and the Dawn

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh 4/5 stars I have a confession. I totally judged this book before reading it and that's why it took me so long to read it. Now you're probably thinking, "Grace did you judge it by the cover (it's beautiful, why would you judge it?)" My answer, is... Continue Reading →

Flame in the (heck yeah) Mist

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh 5/5 Stars This book was phenomenal. I've heard great things about it and it had been on my TBR a really long time before I finally got a hold of the book. I'd normally leave the princess recommendations to Mandy @ prin´╗┐cess book reviews, (here's a post she did... Continue Reading →

This Book Will Blow Your Mind

Minders by Michele Jaffe 5/5 Stars   Woah. That's what I'd like to say about this book first. Just woah. There are so many levels to this book that every page kept me engaged and dying to know what came next. Plots within plots. I never really knew what was gonna happen next. I had...
