Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

Such an epic conclusion to an amazing trilogy! I love how well the story wrapped up and how we don't get a completely happily ever after.  This is my favourite book of the series, which is unusual for me, as I tend to love the first one the best. It's action scene after action scene. So much happens, but not too fast where you are wondering what happened, why or how. It was extremely hard to put down, so I just flew through it.  There were a ton of emotions that ran through me in this book. Happiness, grief, anger,...

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

Book 2 of the Snow Like Ashes trilogy takes your across multiple Kingdoms, while Meira tries to find a way to get out of underneath the debt of Cordell, and keep her Kingdom free. This book is filled with action and schemes.  However I was very surprised with how detailed some scenes would be and then how quickly others were.

It was pretty anticlimactic, and everything seemed way too...

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raash Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

A dying kingdom, kingdoms at war, lost magic, dark magic, romance, plot twists and one determined orphaned girl. This book has it all!  The world building was absolutely amazing!

She is a character who I easily felt for. Her determination to be her own person, live her own path and to show that she mattered. She really struggled with wanting to be seen for her...

Vicious by VE Schwab Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

I went into this book knowing pretty much nothing, which is my favorite way to go into a new world. There is a ton of time jumping so that definitely takes some getting used to and can be a bit confusing if you're like me, and don't pay attention to the transition of new chapters. However, once I slowed down a bit and made sure I read each time jump, I really enjoyed how this story unfolds.  Both Victor and Eli are very complicated characters, both very similar but also widely different. I like how the two differ in their...
