Reawakened by Colleen Houck drew me in right away. I’ve been waiting for all three books to be published so I can binge read all of the books.

“And I Darken” by Kiersten White is a fantastic book. This book is a retelling of history. This is a retelling of the Drăculești throne. There is a twist Vlad Dracula is now Lada, a girl. It is quite interesting to see the difference in the story and how things work out for Lada. What I liked: Lada is an amazing character. I loved how snarky she is. White got to put a lot of creativity to work since Vlad doesn’t have a lot of his life documented. I liked that the story wasn’t completely focused around romance. The focus […]

My Teaser: Every day she waited for a beating, for some new horror to be visited on her and Radu, for the real reason they had been brought to Amasya to be revealed. The suspense made her quiet and sullen. Radu, meanwhile, gained back some of the weight he had lost. Lada no longer heard him crying at night. She hated seeing him grow comfortable. It would make whatever lesson was coming for them that much worse. About love2dazzle Ali Kiki is a reader, writer, reviewer, blogger, and photographer in Portland, OR.

My Teaser: I weave around students, ducking the dean’s watchful eye by slipping into classrooms whenever her gaze sweeps in my direction. By Hopping from room to room and using other students as shields, I manage to steal past her without incident.
