Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Godsgave Spoiler Book Review 2019 Header - Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! I still can’t believe I’ve finished this book… I don’t know how to review this. Godsgrave is such a novel that you have to just devour and take in with everything you have. Anything Jay Kristoff writes is beautiful, dangerous and so utterly addictive. Blurb: Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade […]

Heyo Bookaholics! Just the push I needed… Here’s the thing… I started Godsgrave but never finished it, putting it down at about one-third of the way in. Godsgrave is the sequel to and second book in the Nevernight series. It is an adult novel written by Jay Kristoff, an Australian author also known for his collaborative work in writing the best-selling Illuminae Files with fellow Aussie, Amie Kaufman. The Nevernight series is a beefy one with a shit-ton of world-building, […]

Heyo Bookaholics! It’s Space Time. Again! It’s space time again, and that means I’ve read another Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman co-authored novel! Aurora Rising is the first novel in the Aurora Cycle Series and is once again full of amazingly unique characters, family bonds between siblings and friends, and uber cool space stuff that is so reminiscent of any of their works. I was going to put this novel on hold to read the entire 7 books on my Rainbow TBR […]

obsidio book review blog header 2018 - Obsidio by J. Kristoff & A. Kaufman | Very Spoilery Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Oh my lord! This book review has to be one of the hardest to write as I was so full of emotions while reading this book. I initially didn’t want to read this book till next year or so because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to cope with the conclusion of this series (spoiler: I actually can’t), but I mustered up all my energy and let this book devour me whole. It is absolutely impossible to […]

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff | Review

img 20171222 002117 - Nevernight by Jay Kristoff | Review

Hey Ho Bookaholics! Today I bring to you a review of the most wonderfully scripted books I have read this year. The characters have stolen my heart, baffled my mind, and gave me a lesson in the history of a place I will (hopefully) never visit thus rendering it useless except for book discussions (so not entirely useless). When I received this book as a Christmas present from my Best Friend, I read it immediately and was captivated by the […]
