    This sounds amazing. I'm hoping this will be what GIRLS OF PAPER AND FIRE wasn't, i.e. good. Don't @ me. ...

    Thanks to Netgalley for the chance to read early for an honest review. This is a hard one to rate. The story was unique, but some of the author's word and phrasing choices made it difficult to immerse myself in the world. I'd stop reading and reread the line and think, "That's how ...

    This is a book that is painfully slow and while it speaks to an interesting premise it offers nothing new to a story we?ve read before. ?Gravemaidens? follows a family cast out of their wealthy society who have suffered loss after loss when the ceremony for the Sacred Maidens...

    Thank you, Delacorte Press, for sending my an ARC of Gravemaidens for review! 12/21/18: Excuse me, was this book written with my interests in mind?! This sounds like an interesting tale of love and sacrifice inspired by practices of Ancient Sumer, which I am here for! I am so e...

    3.5 stars. This is the kind of commercial fantasy that you read, enjoy and then completely forget about. But I guess in this particular case I?m not allowed to forget about it because there will be a second and final book that will wrap up the story and decide Kammani?s fate onc...

    Wow! There were some evil bastards in this book with some graphic violence! But all is well my peeps, you can skim over those little portions! I, myself would like to set fire to those evil beings but that is neither here nor there. I love this freaking book and can we take a momen...

    I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!* 3.5-4 ? This was a good first book in a series (duology). To be honest, this book I cover-shopped. I saw the beautiful cover and had to read the book. Luckily I enj...

    Beware the Boatman. Whew! I've just finished an early copy of Kelly Coon's captivating debut, and I'm still reeling from the final chapters! GRAVEMAIDENS is filled with such sumptuous prose and atmospheric world-building that it sucked me in from the first few pages, then it gave me...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The first half of GraveMaidens is quite slow, so slow in fact that my hopes started to dwindle that this would be a good book. Not to mention the main character made me want to pull my hair out, and her sister made m...

    Thanks to Netgalley for the chance to review this title. Well, this was a big fat NOPE. Ok so, the story was unique. Three girls are chosen as maidens for their ruler. In this case, the ruler is dying. Therefore, the three girls will die with him, which is a huge honor apparentl...

    This one was a bit of a slow read and sometimes that works but it made it hard for me to connect to the plot. I think my main frustration was how the MC was to the love interest. Like not sure if there just should have been no romance? Anyway, the cover is seriously beautiful and so is...

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Gravemaidens definitely started off with a bang..but like small one. It sucked me in and kind of reminded me of Hunger Games a bit. Mostly because of the whole saving her younger sister from being sacrificed. ...

    I had the pleasure of reading a pre-release copy of this novel and I absolutely loved it! The story was written in a way that was so real to modern life, even though it's set long ago. Although Kammani is the compelling star of the book, I especially love her best friend Iltani who use...
