Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

July 12, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★

I saw THE GOLDEN COMPASS a long time ago on VHS but I never got around to reading the book. I was always disappointed they never made a movie sequel and I was too young to realize they were books. When the opportunity came around to finally check out this classic, I couldn’t resist. Right away, it’s easy to get […]

5 Books That Really Intimidate Me

5 Books That Really Intimidate Me

June 17, 2017 Discussion 23

This post was inspired by the special books I have had on my bookshelf for five years or more. Why have I had them for so long without reading them you ask? Because they intimidate me. What makes a book intimidating? For me, it is usually due the hype, size, or content. Some books I just have a tendency to […]

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

June 11, 2017 Review 10 ★★

When I read DEADLY LITTLE SECRET, I had a number of issues with it that stopped me from fully enjoying the book.

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

May 12, 2017 Review 12 ★★★

ROYCE ROLLS is a novel that stands out against other books in the YA genre. It is definitely unique, and fans of reality television are going to want to check it out. As someone who has a love-hate relationship with dramatic television, I had mixed feelings about this book. The novel starts out in the future and then flashes back, […]

May 3, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

There is a lot of love surrounding Laurie Faria Stolarz’s books. Both of my friends that do not enjoy reading have read her books and liked them. While I found DEADLY LITTLE SECRET to be entertaining, I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it when I was younger. One of my biggest issues with this […]

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

April 3, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

After enjoying PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken last year, I was pretty excited for WAYFARER. PASSENGER delivered a grand adventure with time travel done right, so I was expecting the sequel to be the same. While a great read, WAYFARER got a little slowed down by smaller details. Exploring more relationships Not only were we introduced to new characters, new sides […]
