Wrap-Up: August 2016


This month certainly wasn’t the most productive, and I haven’t put a dent in tackling my bookshelf. But I’ve read some captivating books!

The Oddity by Kat Hawthorne

How much can I gush about this small little treat? Kat’s work made me think. A lot. And not many others do. Sure, you get some books that may make you question a few things, but this one made me think. The story is simply stunning and enchanting, and I hope to have this book on my shelf soon!

One thing I can say is that I love me some beautifully designed books. My Ryerson program has taught me how to appreciate the simplicity and the love of book design. Here’s my review.


Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong 

I’ve read this book about three times, and every time I do, I fall in love with the world building, the characters, and the storyline. What I love about this series is that it still contains similar themes as her other work, but this one has such a dynamic world I haven’t seen before, and I truly appreciate the mythology behind this story! It truly captured me.


Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

Moria truly shines in this sequel. While I didn’t like how the twins were separated, I love how they grew as indidivuals. And the mythology in this book is superb! My God, I love it. I cannot wait to read Forest of Ruin.


I’ll be posting my reviews for both books soon! And you’ll soon see a big change on my site, so don’t worry. A different name but the same content! One reason why I haven’t been around lately.

  1. I love Kelley Armstrong! Sadly I wasn’t a huge fan of the Age of Legends trilogy overall, but I absolutely LOVED Empire of Night. You’re so right: the twins grow so much in that book, especially Ashyn. I’m excited to hear your thoughts in greater detail! 🙂

    • Yess, another KA reader! I don’t usually find one. So, hi! 😆

      I haven’t read the last book, but I’m hoping it’s good. Empire of Night was excellent!! I was irritated that some of the characters brushed Ashyn off. She may be quiet, but she has such a deep strength not many see.

      I’m writing the Sea of Shadows review now! And I hope to get the second one done shortly. 😋
