Royal Destiny by Morgan Howell My rating: 3 of 5 stars In general, I really enjoyed this series. But this book was definitely the weakest of the three, which is a shame, because it was the end.

Clan Daughter by Morgan Howell My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m really enjoying this series! But I found this book a harder read than the first one, King’s Property. I’m not sure why that is.

Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars Eager for all things Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire, I asked for this book for a Yuletide gift.

A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars So I wrote a big, long review for this a while ago, and then Goodreads ate it. Guess I took too long. So you’re going to get the short-and-dirty version. This book differs significantly from the TV show. There are whole […]Read more "Book Review: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R.
