Witch in the Woods by C. M. Adler Book Tour-Review

Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived near an enchanted forest with her sister and her father. One day, while her father was gone selling firewood to the neighboring villages, her sister fell ill. Out of desperation, the young girl ventured into the forest for help and there she found a woman who gave her everything her soul desired…

Ambrosine lives next to an enchanted wood, which is no big deal when you know how to spot a magic hoax nest and trap nasty little night fairies. 

And certainly no big deal when there is not even a witch in the woods.

When her little sister Rosaline encounters a strange new creature, she falls asleep and a dangerous fever dream threatens her life. With their mother dead and their father gone, Ambrosine gambles with the deepest desire of her soul as she fights to save her sister.

Based on the Grimm fairy tale, The Tale of the Rose, this is a highly entertaining and bone-chilling story of the first Witch in the Woods.”

Book Review of Kingdom of Thorns by Katherine Macdonald

My Review

I can’t express enough about how much I loved this book. The interactions between Talia and Leopold had me chuckling so much, sometimes even multiple times on the same page. Leo was absolutely adorable, and I admire Talia’s courage and determination. The characters had so much depth to them, and the descriptions jumped to life on the page.

For as many Sleeping Beauty retellings that are out there in the world, this one is truly unique, not quite like anything I’ve read thus far. Unique, witty, and charming, this book is not something you want to miss out on. If you’re in the mood for fairy tales with exciting twists, I highly recommend reading Kingdom of Thorns.

My rating: 5 stars

Book Review of Conscious in Wonderland by Steven Heumann

My Review

What would happen if we were able to control our unconsciousness? What kind of people would we become if we could choose every aspect of our unconscious lives from what we looked like, where we lived, and what we wore? If we could access other people’s thoughts and emotions, how would that change us?

Although just a short story, Conscious in Wonderland is very well written, packed full of incredible details and concepts that make the reader stop to ponder their meaning. Do we truly understand our own minds? This story makes you wonder how much we don’t understand about ourselves in our own subconscious. Compelling and thought-provoking. I enjoyed it!

Book Review of Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

I’m on a Sarah J Maas kick lately! I have loved all of her books, and she is one of my top favorite authors. I love the way she writes, I love all the complex details that come together at the end of each book, and I especially love that I can’t easily predict what will happen next.

My favorite character in this book has to be Manon Blackbeak. Her character arc is for sure going to blow me out of the water in the next books! I’m sure of it. She sees true strength in the wyvern she chooses, Abraxos, who seems to share a soul with her on every level.

I was blown away by Celaena in this book. She starts out as a husk of a shell of what she used to be, and has to find a way to piece herself back together and become the person she was always meant to be. I’m excited to see how Rowan fits into the next book, and how they will progress from there.

Each book in the series keeps getting better and better! I’m looking forward to reading the next one, which is waiting right beside me as I’m writing this.

My rating: 5 stars
