    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest DNF @ 66% So, I guess the new YA trend isn't just to write books that are derivative, but also to title them in derivative ways, as well? If so, good plan, because THE MERCIFUL CROW is a book that feels like doze...

    Another book I?ve been waiting to read since before its release and really hoping that it would live up to my expectations - I can?t tell you all how happy I am that it did. There are many things in this book that impressed me but I have to give the main props to the world buil...

    DNF. I give up. I?m not one to light-heartedly leave a book unfinished, but about sixty pages into this, all I am is a) annoyed by the writing, and b) wondering why in the world I should care about a single thing that is happening. (Ironic, how only a few hours ago I was tweeting ...

    I came for the crows. I stayed because I had already given up a couple of hours of my life and I might as well finish. That said, I wasn?t too invested in the story or the characters and especially not in the romance. It wasn?t at all memorable. It?s now August and I promis...

    I?m super glad I?ve just bemoaned all the disappointing YA fantasy so far this year because the universe sat up, said, ?oh yeah??, and tugged the rug right out from under me. Bookies, I present to you : THE MERCIFUL CROW. I knew nothing about this before beginning (#TeamNoB...

    This book felt so different - the way it read, the characters, the world. It was so unique and whilst there was so much to the world building I loved how more and more was revealed as I went along. Fie is a firecracker, I love her. ...

    ??We will be back when you call.? When, not if.? I received an ARC of The Merciful Crow at BookExpo, this in no way impacts my review. However, my review is based on an unfinished and uncorrected copy, please note that the story and quotes may differ from the final book. I...

    Crows have long suffered under the reputation of being *bad* but I?m so glad they?re finally getting the representation they deserve. Somewhere, in Ketterdam, Kaz Brekker is nodding approvingly although it might be because he just plucked out someone?s eyeballs ...

    Oh my friends. This book is breathtaking. My only regret in reading it so early is that it's not published yet, so I can't buy about 50 copies for all the writers and YA fantasy lovers in my life. (Next holiday season, hopefully). Let's start with worldbuilding: from the first page...

    Wait, I seriously get to rate and review my own book? Rad. So my completely unbiased review is that it made me laugh, cry, and single-handedly put Ben & Jerry's grandchildren through med school. And that was just from writing the dang thing. Anyway, I hope y'all like it! I made ...

    Full Review I was drawn to this book by it's cover but I'm glad it was an enjoyable book too! What i liked - The plot/magic system: I found some aspects of the storyline to be unique. For instance, the MC belongs to a group of people called 'Crows'. When someone dies of a ...

    3.5 rounded up. While this book was a bit slow in places, the details of the caste system and the tooth magic interested me enough to keep reading. Fie was a great character. She is a member of the Crow Caste- the lowest caste there is- tasked with travelling the roads to mercifu...
