    I got my hands on an ARC of The Bone Charmer, and I hated having to give it back. This is a book I plan to reread the second it comes out. It's one of the most unique and captivating YA fantasies I've read in years. Saskia is lovable, strong, flawed, and impossible not to root for. The...

    This book is utterly brilliant. I texted a fellow author last night after I finished (because this is what we do) to hash out my thoughts and feelings, but I had nothing negative to say. The characters are well drawn, the world building and magic system are exquisite, the plotting (inc...

    So very impressed with this book! It took me a few chapters to really settle into the way that Breeana Shields wanted to tell this story, but once I was there I was hooked. Saskia's life has has always been dictated by bone reading. Each moment painstakingly created so that she'll stay...

    When Saskia's bone reading, which will determine her future career path and future love match, goes wrong, her future is split into two paths.  On one path, Saskia will go on to train as a bone charmer and be matched with a boy she fears has a violent past, and on the other she'll tra...

    ** I received a digital ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ** The Bone Charmer by Breeana Shields is a macabre fantasy full of bone magic (yes, reading your past, present, and future from both animal and human bones is a thing in this book and it?s super weird at ...

    The Bone Charmer tells the tale of Saskia and her journeys after her kenning. Her Bone Charmer mother has the power to see multiple future paths for Saskia, but Saskia believes her mother only picks the path she will despise the most: the path of a Bone Charmer and with the guy she doe...

    I really enjoyed this Sliding Doors-esque story. The two timelines Saskia ends up in were both so intriguing that they kept me turning the pages. Bram totally stole my heart! The magic, world, and characters are well-crafted and compelling. I loved how The Bone Charmer explores the con...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . Oh noes, the dreaded DNF! I have only DNFed 6 books before this one, so yeah. Here's the thing: I don't think this one was necessarily bad, I just think try as I might, I...

    The Bone Charmer is one of those rare books that have left me feeling more than a little conflicted. On the one hand, it?s a well-written and fun book that I enjoyed very much and devoured in a just a few days?but on the other hand it?s an acutely flawed book that left me feeling...

    **Review can be found at https://smadasbooksmack.blogspot.com/ ** Saskia has always feared the magic that speaks to her, so much so that she wants nothing to do with the life her mother believes will be hers. On the day of her keening where her future will known, Saskia unleashes a ...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! I had pretty high hopes for this one, but I'm quite disappointed: the writing was good, but the world and characters were weak. This book reminded me strongly of Tessa Gratton's Strange Grace - the heroine, Saskia, is...

    I really liked the author's Poison's Kiss duology, so when I saw this one was from her as well, I hopped right on to read it! The idea of the story line being dual POV from the same MC but with a different version of herself was a neat concept!  Have you ever wondered what your lif...

    ARC provided by Page Street Publishing via NetGalley for an honest review. I admit that I read the summary when I picked this book on NetGalley, but by the time I got around to reading it, I had forgotten what it was all about. So when I got to the chapter where the timelines split...

    DNF at page 77. This is following some all-too-familiar paths with love interests and is simultaneously going nowhere. Really wanted to get lost in this tale of bone magic and blood, but it?s too uneventful to push through any further. His crestfallen expression tugs at a tendril o...

    By the end of the second chapter of this book, I immediately stopped what I was doing and went to preorder the hard copy. This book is everything I?ve been looking for in a novel but didn?t realize I was missing! It?s very reminiscent to me of a Russian folktale meets Harry Po...
