  I think this review is going to be short and sweet. I am going to try to keep spoilers out of it. I have a feeling this review is going to into the ramblings of a fangirl. I loved Winter!!! There I said it. I don’t know if the majority will agree with me but I loved Winter. It was a long epic journey that ended just the way I wanted it to.     I love fairytales and sci-fi/fantasy.   What is there not love about a series that is like Once Upon a Time meets Stars Wars?  When I… Read more »

Cress picks… Read more »

Cruel Beauty is yet another foray into the sub-genre of fairy tale retellings. Authors expound upon a set story and shape it to their desires. These stories always bring something exciting to the table, whether they’re set in the future with space travel and androids like The Lunar Chronicles or are a modern day retelling of the Persephone myth like the Everneath series. In this instance, we have a retelling of Beauty and the Beast that is set in the land of Arcadia. There is a Grecian flair attached to everything in this book. It’s interesting, considering the other Beauty… Read more »
