The Deep End of the Sea Review


You know what is amazing about this Greek mythology retelling? ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!! Screenshot 2018-01-14 at 7.42.06 PM

This novel is by Heather Lyons and is all about Medusa who is normally written as the killer of men, completely evil, usually badass which still is in this novel, but anyways im getting away from myself.

In Heather Lyons take, medusa has been wrongfully cursed by Athena after being raped by another god in her temple. >.> Instead of protecting poor medusa she turns her into a monster and curses her away in an island for the rest of her unknowingly ending life. That is until one day Hermes comes into play.


Hermes gets Medusa to speak up and fight back to end her curse. While its all clear to us why the man is doing this Medusa is totally clueless which was slightly adorable but also me wanting to push their heads together. The story doesn’t even end at the plot point as I expected honestly more things and twists happen afterwards that I absolutely loved. Plus lines like below 😀

“When we fall in love, it’s forever love. Even if you decide one day that you do not love me anymore, I will still always feel this way for you.” – Hermes

Also major selling points Hades is in this story as a GOOD GUY. I repeat a good guy! I love Hades and love stories that have him not only hilarious and totally awesome, but not evil.

So seriously stop what you are doing and buy this book!! It was absolutely my first read of the year so far which I know is early, but it is not my first read people! I have a problem I know we don’t need to discuss it. So go follow the link below and buy it

Glimpse into my 2018

Holy Cow anyone else can’t believe we are already almost done with the first week of January? Well I know I have many plans this year and I can’t promise they will all happen, but I can only hope they do!

One of my biggest goals is to complete nursing school well my 2nd and 3rd semester for this year! Nursing school has challenged me in so many ways that I’ve never had happen before in my life. It also succeeded in making me miserable and quit everything I loved about myself in the first semester which I am not going to let happen again.

Now the really fun goals are my Good reads reading challenge which I set for 20 this year! I didn’t set it as high as I would like because of nursing school. Another part of this goal is I’m hoping that at least once a month I read a book from an indie author. Even if it happens to read up being my only book of the month because as an inspiring author supporting others is so important.


This leads into my final goal for the year…to write more! I get so many ideas and I get really need to stop telling myself that they suck and write it. I will never know until I write it so I need to just do it!

What are some of your goals this year? Also don’t forget to follow me on my instagram and good reads@moonprincess37

bookstagram and other goodies!

I have not posted in forever! I’d apologize but I was actually in nursing school where I put almost everything on the back burner for this step in my life.

I did however stumble upon bookstagram and have fallen in love with all the positive book vibes and amazing people. I have decided though now that I’ve finished my first semester to catch up on my blog, goodreads and connect all my accounts to help keep everything together and up to date.

I also during the semester did get to see Sarah J Maas in person who was completely amazing and receive two copies of Tower of Dawn signed along with a few goodies. I also was able to see Leigh Bardugo who stayed and signed books for everyone who attended because shes just amazing. 21730956_10207548944321595_6853289264517845868_n

Yes my husband also during this time broke his leg but was a trooper still during the events. He also doesn’t enjoy reading so I mean he really does love me to put up with all this crazyness=p

So just a quick post really…I am going to attempt to link tree all my stuff up because soon on instagram I will be hosting a giveaway and future giveaways on my blog hopefully as I get it back up! In the mean time my id on instagram is moonprincess37 so lets be friends!


Throne of Glass Review

“We all bear scars,…Mine just happen to be more visible than most.” 


I have fallen in love with Sarah J Maas and her writing. After reading ACOTAR series I couldn’t help, but pick up throne of glass. I was not disappointed, but that was no surprise. Throne of Glass is the beginning to an very long journey for a assassin that anyone who picks it up will soon love.

The Synopsis goes:  

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

My Review:

Seriously, I knew I was going to like this book and I did! I’m so excited for the series because from all my readings on pinterest and tumblr the first one doesn’t even touch some of the future ones.

The plot was definitely a good one, an assassin given a chance of freedom from her sentence of imprisonment if she wins a competition against others and becomes the Kings call dog for four years. She was picked by the kings son (Dorian) to compete in the competition.

I loved that she wasn’t just this nasty assassin, but a human being doing what she had to do to survive. She was a real character who would admit her judgement against people and tried to hide her terrible past. I loved Choal who was probably one of the smartest among them. He actually thought things through unlike Celanea and Dorian sometimes.

My complaints though was of the semi love triangle between her, Dorian, and Choal. This might actually stem from my slight spoiler reading online so I know how that is all going to go down. I think it was also because it was so off and on through out the book that I felt it hard to ship them together. Also the whole candy scene on her bed made me so mad! A smart assassin wouldn’t not of just ate random candy found on her bed I hope.



Overall, it wasn’t a super action packed book, many of the trials leading to the main fight weren’t all that exciting. It was clearly a book to help up the others and get the journey a going and I can’t wait to see what all happens next.


Frost Blood Review

I’m so excited to review this book for two sole reasons: one, it was a great fast read seriously I read it completely under 6 hours i think. second, elly blake will be at my local comic con this fall so I can get it autographed 0.0


Here is it’s description for anyone unfamiliar:

Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers of heat and flame from the cruel Frostblood ruling class her entire life. But when her mother is killed trying to protect her, and rebel Frostbloods demand her help to overthrow their bloodthirsty king, she agrees to come out of hiding, desperate to have her revenge.
Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating–yet irresistible–Arcus, who seems to think of her as nothing more than a weapon. But before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to compete in the king’s tournaments that pit Fireblood prisoners against Frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her–and from the icy young man she has come to love.
Vivid and compelling, Frostblood is the first in an exhilarating series about a world where flame and ice are mortal enemies…but together create a power that could change everything.
Now I loved this story, was it maybe a typical YA fantasy where the main character grows into a strong female and saves the day…maybe but it was done with style and I didn’t find it repetitive or boring in the least bit. You are memorable characters with a compelling backstory for the bad guys. The twists were not all predictable and leaves you wanting to know what will happen in book two.
Ruby was a wonderful character who I loved seeing bickering with Arcus. Their off the wall flirting was adorable and I couldn’t wait to see them realize it. I can’t wait to see her powers grow more in the next story and see her over come the Minax.
Arcus was hilarious and I was devastated when I heard his backstory. The man simply deserves Ruby forever and the only thing in the series to be completed by Elly that has me worried is that it sounds like a love triangle might be coming in book two and I hate those! Why does every author feel the need to try and mess with us like that? Please keep Arcus and Ruby together for real make them a OTP!

ACOMAF review

I’m finally sitting down to write my review of this second installment of A Court of Thorn and Roses series. I have actually finished all three books and by far the middle is my favorite for so many reasons that I’ll get into in just a few, but first I’m sharing the little expert for anyone unfamiliar which seriously you shouldn’t be. Go buy it now!

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court–but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two.

So some of my favorite things in this book which were no surprise since Sarah J Maas seems to just rock it all out.

The character development was so amazing! I loved Feyre so much at the end of ACOTAR, but she was so broken at the end it was amazing to see her grow into her new self.

I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal.
I was a survivor, and I was strong.
I would not be weak, or helpless again.
I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.

We finally get to see more of Rhysand who I loved in the first book I mean he did save feyres butt for us, after all.


We finally get introduced to the other courts and world. Don’t get me wrong seeing the spring court for 90% of the book was fine, but I loved seeing all the magical places. Also not seeing certain characters for a lengthy part of the book was very nice. Sorry, not sorry.

We get to see many more new amazing, life changing, Creations of more Ships in this book.

The plot was so much more intense and gripping in this book, I could not put it down for the life of me. The ending was killer making me want to throw the book across the room, but I like my books pretty so I refrained and dove directly into three to see what was going to happen to my favorite people.

So please go buy this book, you will not regret for one moment I promise.


Shiver ~ Book Review

6068551 This is my review over shiver, book one of a trilogy (The wolves of Mercy Falls).

Now this trilogy has been on my shelf for awhile and I finally decided after my major bookhangover thanks to A court of Thorn and Roses series, to give it a shot. I pleasantly enjoyed Shiver, but it will likely never be a reread sadly.

Shiver revolves around Grace who when she was little was attacked by a pack of wolves, but magically survived. Now I feel almost every normal person afterwards would be terrified of wolves, but nope this makes Grace obsessed. The wolf that helped save her from being killed now always watches her from a distance and only in the cold months of winter.

This is because Sam the other main character of the story is a werewolf that doesn’t change to the moon, but to the cold. It was a interesting new concept that she made deeper by giving them limited years as a human during the warm months before finally staying a wolf forever.

The journey of the two throughout the book revolves mostly around them lounging around and falling in love. Which I liked do not get me wrong. I’m a sucker for romance, but they had issues they kept ignoring completely. Like it was Sams last year as a human, Jack a fellow peer of Graces that was attacked and is now patronizing the school and her friend Olivia, and Beck (Sams pretty much dad) is walking around changing more people into wolves so the pack is taken care of since Sam isn’t staying a human as long as he should of. Oh also Grace should of turned into a wolf as well by now since she was bitten, but from getting locked in a car until she almost died. She mysteriously never changed, but has heightened abilities.

The serious ending was quick and brutal, taking out two of the characters for a chance at the cure. In the end though, Sam and Grace are happily together still which I liked, but the way it ended complete to me, honestly doesn’t make me want to reach for the second book because I don’t really want to see them torn apart or whatever the author decides.

In the end, I’m giving the book a 3.5/5 stars. I liked the concept, but the characters could of had such a better plot story than the lame teenage budding romance until right at the end.


A Court of Thorn and Roses

So I finally picked up this series to read from where I constantly see it on my Instagram feed and I am so happy I did. This book was awesome.


This was my face throughout the book especially the last little part of the book.

So the book is a beauty and the beast inspired retelling, and happens to be my only book I’ve read that is a retelling so maybe it’s why I ate it up, but I also think it’s because feyre and rhys are badass. Sorry Tam I want to love you sooo much but rhys is winning my first ship for feyre.

I really enjoyed that while it totally has the feel of the retelling it is also a original idea in my eyes. Feyre gets whisked away by Tamlin who doesn’t automatically try to woo her. Also Lucien is the best side witty character, I love witty characters. I wouldn’t mind a little more Lucien background.

Feyre goes out of her way to help Tamlin and his court break the curse that they are under even though he tries telling her there is nothing she can do. Well besides the obvious fall in love with him and tell him that but she doesn’t because that wouldn’t be much of a story would it.

So we do go through a good two thirds of the book her trying to risk her life to help them and not listen because she doesn’t do that well. Lucien makes this very interesting for us though by giving her all the terrible ideas that are secretly helpful. Finally Tam and Feyre are clearly in love with each other when enters the bad queen. So tam sends her away to keep his beloved safe even though feyre wont say the words out loud.

Now feyre is back at her dreaded home where I can stand her sisters or father while who knows what is happening to poor tam. So she grows that huntress back bone and sets off to save him from the evil queen.

Her growth throughout the trials was absolutely amazing, but the best part Rhys is finally in the story!


He clearly isn’t a terrible guy I can see through that badass act and I like it. How he makes out with her in the hall to save her and tam. The man deserves to win some feyre heart, but alas he is there only to save feyres life so she can save everyone.

I loved this retelling and im half way through book two so I already know how things are panning out and I’m loving it so far. This book deserves the spotlight it is getting and more, in my opinion. Go out and buy this book seriously you will not regret it unless you are lame.




Switch- Megan Hart


So the back of this book had me so interested in reading it. I was super excited for an idea that I had never seen before…well it was pretty lame. I struggled to finish this book not super bad, but little motivation to pick it up and read.

It’s going to be a short, simple review. I didn’t like the book which is so rare for me. It just didn’t have any depth it was like the same thing for almost all the book than she changes her mind at the last second. You learn very little about her divorce, you get this build up of a relationship with Eric. Who seemed like a really nice guy, but in the end who knows what happens to the poor guy. You get the odd end twist of  her mom being sick which is the last push into her realizing she loved Austin and they just needed to work on their differences. Well yeah…young marriages take work.


I don’t know I just wasn’t a fan which is a total bummer because I was so interested in a female dom. bdsm story which you hardly get a feel for. Overall I don’t think I’d recommend the book to a friend since I have plenty of omg read this book sitting on my shelf


Knight of the hunted Review

This book was sooo good! I love vampires and lycans, but clearly these days its harder to find different ideas revolving these. Elizabeth Dunlap, author of this book, nailed making a new idea that was actually interesting!


The story revolves around lisbeth who is an old vampire living her life at a order. Everything is fine and dandy until she spares the life of a lycan child which is a big no no in their rule book. Well this causes her some trouble as in the hunters want to come and probably kill her so she goes on the run. I can’t believe in the vampire world they are still this unreasonable =p

Along her way, she meets Knight who helps her escape capture one night when weakened from lack of blood. After some bantering, they decide to travel together until Knight accidentally almost kills her, their a complicated pair.

While attempting to find blood, Lisbeth runs into a town ruled by a Vampire, James. I could not stand James! He was a typical, I’m the strongest vampire so you must obey me at all times >.> I really hope Knight bites his head off in some point in the future, just saying xD


I loved Lisbeth, she is a strong character from the beginning, but her growth is amazing to watch. She is also so real, I loved all the little jokes and humor along the way especially when her powers grow. It keeps the story interesting.

Knight is my favorite though, he helps Lisbeth so much along the way. Also his love of tacos and food in general hits my food loving soul. I can’t wait to see what the duo do next and I hope they find their way to peace in the end.

This book and author deserve your attention! This does happen to be her first published work I believe=p I can’t wait for more amazing books down the line from her.
