Hello lovelies! Today I have my book review of
Gypsy’s Blood is the first book in the All The Pretty Monsters series.
Trigger Warnings: Attempted Murder, Murder mention, Death of a Parent, Sex Scenes, Grief.
I’m not all that special, really. Or uncommon. I’m sure there are a lot of girls with old gypsy blood who see the dead, have killer cults hunting their family, and turn into something that gets scary when they panic. Yep. Completely unoriginal, if I do say so myself.

I’ve been labeled as one thing or another for most of my life:
Crazy Gypsy Girl.
It took my mother’s death for me to finally start getting answers about what’s really been going on. Unfortunately, most of the answers come from men…who aren’t just men.

I’ve gone and drawn attention to myself, and the ones paying attention are the ones everyone else seems to fear.
How do these things always happen to me?

When I first came across Gypsy’s Blood, I didn’t think much of it. I put it on my wish-list and moved on. The only reason why I read this book was because I found out that Gypsy’s Blood is a book that the reverse harem group I joined had read it
(and I’m playing catch-up), and I figured I’d try it out. Like I said, I didn’t think much of this book.
What I did think of it was that it’d be alright. I could read Gypsy’s Blood and move along because I didn’t think it’d be as interesting as it turned out to be. And, friend, Continue reading →
