Ever since reading Yumoyori's Starlight Gods series, I've been in love with her books, soo when I saw this, I knew I HAD to read it.
Wolf Tamer has the most heartbreaking beginning I've ever read. I haven't cried while reading a book in a while, until this book. It follows Harper, an orphaned girl adopted by a couple running a wolf sanctuary. But Harper is no ordinary girl, and she soon learns that the wolves she surrounds herself with are a more than they seem as well.
The story is told a little different from the other books I've read by her, we see Harper growing up from her 5 year old self on to the age of 20-ish. I really liked that this book gave us a look into her life growing up and her getting closer to Ian and the wolves at the sanctuary.
I really enjoyed this story. I loved the relationship between Harper and Ian because they started out as best friends and as the story progresses, they start to fall in love.
We don't get to see much of her harem until near the end of the book, well except for Ian, who has been with Harper for most of her life, but we do get a few quick looks at the rest of the pack.
A LOT happens near the end and it ends on a cliffhanger! I LOVED Wolf Tamer and I can’t wait to read book 2~

“Being chosen is easy. Making choices will break your heart.”
Wow. This was perfect in every way. It had action, romance, vampires, demons, I mean what more could you ask for?
It was a little slow at the beginning but I was quickly drawn in. The plot was great! The chemistry between the characters was insane. I loved everything about the book~ For someone like myself who hasn't watched anything of Buffy, it was easy to understand what was happening.
I just wish there was a little more world building. There were so many questions left unanswered, I feel like there was a HUGE cliffhanger... BUT I cannot wait to read more! This is definitely a book you have to read, whether you've watched the show or not. I highly recommend it!

The description drew me in immediately. The premise made it sound like an interesting read, and the book definitely held up to that. I found that the story very engaging and I couldn't put it down! I'm surprised how much I enjoyed this one. A fun quick read!
It's well-written and has very interesting characters, I loved author's writing style; unique and a little quirky. Nora's story is quite tragic but at the same time it is also full of hope. Although, she loses her boyfriend, whom she loves immensely, however she also gains the ability to see, as well as, talk to the dead. And the dead never rests, unfortunately. At first she thinks she is going crazy. With little help she soon realizes that things are exactly as they seem to be and there is nothing wrong with her brain.
Overall this book was amazing!! If you like YA Paranormal, and are looking for fun, easy read, you will probably enjoy this book. I highly recommend it!

I am so in love with this series!! This book delves deeper into some of the internal struggles of every character. I loved that Yumoyori really explored the depths of these characters in Tainted Rose. I think it gave the book just that little bit extra to push it over the edge into fantastic amazing-ness.
Tainted Rose is the second book in the Starlight Gods series, and picks up where Dark Wish left off. We’ve got Mako in a coma, Eli/Elias is riddled with poison and the rest of the Knights are feeling very lost without the glue that Mako creates. Without giving much away in this review, this second book is all about the boys. Each of the knights and their spirits are given a chance to shine and the reader to learn more about them. The reader also meets Kai – which is awesome! I know there are many POVs but they were necessary, we get to look through Makoto’s knight’s minds, and their spirits minds and it really adds to each characters development. I absolutely love everyone’s perspective, I love when authors do this, I love hearing all the characters thoughts.
Once again, this is an amazing story that completely gripped from the first word to the last. Mako is just as quirky as she was in the first book. I love how we see the different spirits to each of them, plus how the Knights all have their own very individual characters, and their own histories too. We read more about Daniel and Elias’ past. I really enjoyed seeing Marcus’ dragon come out to play! Oh and don’t even get me start on Kai and his phoenix. . . omggg. Yumoyori just keeps on bringing on the hotness with these men and I seriously can’t handle it! I really feel for Elias and I really hope that he can open up to Mako soon and let her in. I would also love to get more of Azriel, I loved the dynamic between him and Stryker, and the silly little tiff that they have going on. . . I giggle every time at it. It seemed very natural to have a demon and angel bang heads and not want to admit that they actually are besties hahaha. . .
Tainted Rose had just about everything that I was looking for in this book, it was funny, creative, suspenseful, melt your panties sexy and just down right good. So much more is revealed in this book than I first anticipated. I really cannot wait to read the next book in this series! I highly recommend reading this series!
Also, Leo is back haha and just as annoying as before!! ANDDD, a freaking CLIFFHANGER!!!! Ahhhaha

Okayy, first off, I LOVE the cover~
This book is incredible! The characters, plot, world building is so amazing, unique and unlike anything I’ve read before. Dark Wish will hook you form the start, and you won’t want to stop reading. I absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the description, but wasn’t sure if I’d like it because I thought, “oh no! Is this going to be similar to The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer??”… I mean, the whole “missing princess” but I was proven wrong! Similar in that way only, because Cinder wasn’t kidnapped as a child, like Makoto (Princess Rosalind of Helia).
Dark Wish follows Makoto, the adorable but slightly ‘crazy’ main character. Makoto, kidnapped at a very young age, is a prisoner/slave/experiment to ‘the Owner’ (Blair Aspen). Honestly, this beginning part is perfect insight into how long she’s been living this life of trials and torment and how she’s the Owners’ favourite.
She does get rescued by 4 of her knights; Ryder, Elias, Daniel, Marcus, there is a 5th Knight, Kai, but he’s back in Helia. But yeah, she gets rescued, and things finally change for her, in a good way, in a way that she never thought would happen; she gets to live in the ‘real’ world, a world outside of the facility.
Makoto strives to be normal but normal is hard when she was born to be different, and stand out. There is a prophecy about her that the Starlight Gods will bless her with 4 spirits (which is VERY rare, and no one ever has coped with that many spirits). But Makoto is such a strong character, that she can in fact cope with all of them! Also, having all these spirits makes Makoto soo powerful. She wields power unlike any ever seen before, which is why the “Owner” favoured her. We also get to know and love her 4 spirits; Rose, Lexi, Lilly, Hope and a ‘split personality’, Midnight. (There’s a reason I quoted “split personality” which I can’t say because of spoilers for the second book, which I just recently finished.) She converses with these spirits/powers in her mind. And it is hilarious! I absolutely loved Makoto and her shifter inhabitants. It’s one of my favourite things about this book! I love how it affected Makoto. It seemed perfectly reasonable that she would be a little too inside her head… orrrrr not, sometimes taking her internal conversations public without even realizing it, which was amazing btw! And the reactions from the people around her are great!
OMg Chapter 9 “operation badass bitch” was my favourite!! Makoto is such a strong character, and I thought this chapter really showed it!
This book had some of everything; action, romance, suspense, humor. It really was a fantastic read. I still can’t get over how creative this author is! The world building and back story are exceptional. The characters are multi-layered, and very intricate. THE CLIFFHANGER THOUGH!!! Brutal and shocking. It made me want to get the second book sooo bad! haha… but in my opinion the ending felt really sudden…maybe a little tooo sudden… and I’m kinda disappointed with it.
I can’t wait to read more from this author!! I highly recommend it!

This is my first I've read by Andy Weir. Honestly, I didn't think I would like it, but it surprised me. I just realized that he wrote The Martian, as well, I had no idea that it was a book! I loved the movie!
Artemis is based on the moon, and instead of a story of survival, what we have here is more of a caper-style plot with a female protagonist, Jazz Bashara. Jazz Bashara is a smuggler of harmless contraband on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon that's mostly populated by the super wealthy and tourists on a once-in-a-lifetime trip. After all, she's got bills to pay and her job as a porter barely covers the rent. She changes her tune when she's offered the opportunity to make a fortune by pulling off a seemingly perfect (and impossible) crime. Before Jazz knows it, she's walked straight into a conspiracy for control of the city and that her only chance of living relies on a plan that's even riskier than the first. The get-rich-quick-scheme involves the sabotage of company Sanchez Aluminium - who happen to play a part in supplying Artemis with oxygen.
Jazz isn't the typical hero, she is, after all, trying to bankrupt a company for her personal gain and that of a wealthy friend of hers, yet she has loads of endearing qualities and is a likable and feisty character perfectly portrayed by narrator Rosario Dawson. Her character was so fun, and it was great to have a woman of colour as the main protagonist in a science fiction novel. Whilst she does not practice Islam, we see elements of the religion through her father. I loved that Jazz was just so confident in herself and didn’t worry about others judging her, and she was a great, witty narrator. Even though she was living in relative poverty, at least in comparison to many of the Moon’s citizens, it really felt like she was making the most of what she had, and was so determined to reach her goal.
Overall, Artemis by Andy Weir is a quick and addicting read that you want to savor for as long as you can. I can't wait to read more of his books! I highly recommend it!
A lot better than I expected. It kinda reminded me of The Host by Stephanie Meyer, but 100 times better, with way more detail and uniqueness. I absolutely loved this book and thought it was great. The idea of having people in your head makes for an interesting story and I loved the way the author presented in the book.
The Delphi Effect is an extremely action packed adventure from start to finish with many paranormal elements along with some science fiction mixed into an intense thrill ride. This series is classified young adult but I would say with this one the characters and action seemed more on the mature side than a typical young adult read.
This was such a good start to a series, especially with the cliffhanger ending!
Ahhhhh….I wish that the next books in the trilogy were out already! I neeeeeed to know what happens next. I highly recommend it!
