ARC Review: The Silence of Bones by June Hur

Let June Jur transport your back in time in her haunting and heartbreaking YA historical mystery debut, The Silence of Bones!

This book is incredible, friends! The Silence of Bones is a haunting and heartbreaking YA historical mystery debut. I was expecting a historical whodunit but was delivered a melancholic and twisty story that tore at my heartstrings and made me cry more than once.

“The purple sky deepened into midnight black. A darkness so deep and quiet, swamped in slumbering silence, that [redacted] must have thought himself sneaky.”

The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller

The Shadows Between Us is the Slytherin romance I never knew I needed! I absolutely devoured this book in one five-hour sitting, finishing at 2am and wired from what an amazing read it is. Worth it.

1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.

The Shadows Between Us is a fast-paced fantasy standalone that is easily bingeable. Set in a fantasy kingdom with court politics and a new king, the book marries historical elements with modern feminist ideas for a powerful and empowering tale.

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

What an enjoyable, original, and fast-paced read! I’m really glad that OwlCrate included this book in the September 2019 box (just look at the cover!)!

It’s a weird feeling writing a full review six months after reading a book, but trust me when I say that The Bone Houses is a memorable read that’s stuck with me long after finishing it. It is truly a crime that more people aren’t talking about this fantasy horror with a soft relationship and truly touching sibling relationships!

ARC Review: The God Game by Danny Tobey

I wish that I enjoyed this book more than I did, friends. Reading this book was a wild ride of emotions for me because I was interested in the story but also was disengaged from it. The book felt really long while reading it. By the time I was at 85%, I wanted to DNF the book but forced myself to finish since I was so close to the end. Part of me wanted to know. I wish I hadn’t. This book has no discernible meaning or purpose; it is just chaotic neutral.

“‘What you want, gentlemen and lady, is to play God! Turn social order upside down. Claim what should be yours. Go from duds to studs! And so I give you … the God Game!'”
