Storm & Fury (The Harbinger Series) Updated Review

“I was nothing more than storm and fury”

– Jennifer L Armentrout

Happy Book Birthday Jennifer L. Armentrout!

Thank you Harlequin TEEN and NetGalley for an eARC of this book.

Storm & Fury was one of the first ARCs I was approved for when I started my blogging adventure back in February/March. I had requested it thinking it was actually another book, but was ecstatic to be able to read such a highly anticipated book by such a well known author. In my rush to read this book though, it wasn’t until after I finished it that I found out it was a spinoff to Armentrout’s The Dark Elements series. While I understood the book and did enjoy it, to celebrate the release day I decide to go back and actually read The Dark Elements.

I read all three books in TWO DAYS. I loved the series and it helped me to appreciate some of the characters more in Storm & Fury. Lots of characters crossover, including my now all time favorite book beau Roth. It also gave me a lot more understanding of Zayne, who I really wasn’t that into if you read my original review. I did not like him in The Dark Elements, I thought he was too passive and did a crap job of showing his feelings for Layla and even though he states he doesn’t finally make a move because of Roth, it sure as heck seems that way to me. So while I didn’t like him, knowing his past and motivations behind his actions helped me to appreciate him and maybe grow to like him a bit more in Storm & Fury.

After going back and reading the first series I so had to go back and re-read Storm & Fury. Everything made much more sense and it was easier to pick up on things faster. Even though I thought I knew what was going on by the end of the book my first time through, I was still missing some information. I also knew Zaynes’ background along with those of the DC Warden Clan. Not to mention I was actually excited by the appearance of Roth, Layla, Caymen and even Bambi! Knowing these characters’ stories really added another layer to this story and gave me a little something extra to look forward to.

After all is said and done I still really loved this book and Peanut was definitely still my favorite character. Zayne might be growing on me and Trinity such a kick ass main character that I loved following. The end still gutted me and I’m not sure how I’ll possibly ever wait another year for the next book. At least I know there will be more Roth in my future though *swoon*.

New Blog Same Me

Hello from my new blog!

As you can see I’ve moved my bookish blog from Blogger to WordPress. While Blogger was a great start to my dream of having my own blog, WordPress is more the format I’ve always imagined using. It also allows me to connect easier to other book blogs some of my Instagram followers have. So it was time for a change.

Daisy Jones and the Six Review

It’s like some of us are chasing after our nightmares the way other people chase dreams.”

– Taylor Jenkins Reid

I opened up this book, read the Author’s Note and then opened to the first section and thought “there is no way in hell I can read a book written in interview manuscript form.” I was so wrong. I absolutely loved this novel and I don’t think any other format would have worked at all. Every character was an unreliable narrator and this format allowed you to see situations from everyone’s perspectives while also seeing what else was going on in their lives that other characters had no inkling of. Every character had their own story to tell about how it all went down.

Dark Shores Review

“The East and the West must be kept apart. They must be protected from each other.”

– Danielle L. Jensen

Thank you to Macmillan-Tor/Forge and NetGalley for an ARC of this novel!

I don’t even think I can string together the words to express just how much I loved this book. Just like Sarah J. Maas, I loved every word. This is my favorite book of 2019 and I don’t think anything will be able to top it. I’m a huge fan of Ancient Rome/gladiators, Greek Gods and pirates (thanks Johnny Depp) and this book gave me all of that and somehow made it work.
