21843165Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto

YA Fantasy, hardcover, 384 pages; published February 2, 2016 by Balzer and Bray; source: publisher

Enjoyed but didn’t adore, mostly because there was just so much supernatural and steampunk and other things thrown together that they detracted from the excellent writing. 3 stars

17735579A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann

YA Mystery, hardcover, 439 pages; published March 15, 2016 by Greenwillow Books; source: publisher

Mysterious letter, mysterious castle, paranormal trackers…good times at the Butterfly Castle. Liked the eerie, odd atmosphere and MC Anouk but odd flip in direction halfway through skewed the rating. 3 stars

23316660The Big Rewind by Libby Cudmore

NA Mystery, 256 pages, hardcover; published Feb. 2, 2016 by William Morrow Paperbacks; source: publisher

Bit of murder, bit of love…a lot of reminiscing. Seriously. A lot. And she’s only in her 20’s. Future bitter cat hoarder? Maybe. Bit too hipster-filled for me but still interesting. 3 stars

25781554Jericho (Laura Reardon #2) by Alex Gordon

Paranormal, paperback, 464 pages; published April 5th 2016 by Harper Voyager; source: publisher

Solid follow-up to Gideon, complete with creepy vibe and a strong main character. Lauren continues to learn and grow in her craft. 4 stars 

27213224Breath of Earth (Breath of Earth #1) by Beth Cato

SF Alt-Historical, ebook, 400 pages; published August 23, 2016 by Harper Voyager; source: publisher

Gritty and intriguing, this new series by Cato shows her growth as a writers, as we’re plunged into a complex story filled with magic and steampunk. 4 stars

24612069Wish Bound (Grimm Agency #3) by J.C. Nelson

Urban fantasy, paperback, 304 pages; published August 25, 2015 by Ace; source: publisher

Another fun addition to the Grimm Agency series, Wish Bound finds Marissa in the midst of another catastrophe on her birthday. Poor girl just can’t catch a break. 4 stars

27274410Where the Wild Things Bite (Half-Mood Hollow #5) by Molly Harper

Urban fantasy, paperback, 304 pages; published July 26, 2016 by Pocket Books; source: publisher

Molly Harper always delivers a snarky, silly story and doesn’t disappoint here. Anna, an agoraphobe and germaphobe is trapped in the wilderness with a vamp. Hijinks ensue. 3.5 stars
