ARC Review: The 5th Wave

May 23, 2013 Review 16 ★★★★

There are so many possible variations on how the aliens got here, the way they invaded, why they chose Earth. THE 5TH WAVE is one of the earliest books in this movement, and […]

ARC Review: Siege and Storm

There are expectations, and I know from experience what it feels like when those expectations are dashed. SIEGE AND STORM, other than being the perfect blackmail material […]

Review: Shadow and Bone

Review: Shadow and Bone

May 2, 2013 Review 19 ★★★★

I need to start this by telling you this review is for my second read through of SHADOW AND BONE. Right away the fact I reread it should tell you that it’s actually a pretty decent YA fantasy. And upon rereading I actually upped the rating by one star, even though I already knew what was going to happen. I […]
