Feature and Follow #4

November 9, 2012 Meme 9

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?    A: Yes, it bothers me because I feel like I am reading the same story again.

Review: Such A Rush

November 8, 2012 Review 0 ★★★

Leah Jones didn’t grow up in the best of circumstances, she’s always lived in a trailer near an airport.

Review: Leviathan

Review: Leviathan

October 31, 2012 Review 10 ★★★★½

Prepare for tons of gifs and hyphens! LEVIATHAN is probably the hardest novel I’ve had to review so far. This is because it is so completely different from anything I have ever read, it is a completely originally story that is based in 1914 and tells an alternate history of WWI where the feuding powers are Clankers (mechanical) and Darwinists […]
