Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

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 […]

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 22 ★★½

I think it was a miss After hearing mixed reviews (both online and from friends who DNFed early on) I was really hesitant to start TALON. I love Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey and Blood of Eden books, so I really was hoping this was okay, but the mixed reception had me worried. And unfortunately everything my friends said was true. […]

5 Things About Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

April 12, 2017 Review 31 ★★★★½

I forgot how gorgeous Laini Taylor’s writing is I remembered Laini Taylor’s writing was amazing, but I forgot exactly how beautiful it is! Nothing I say could possible do it justice but it’s the most well written thing I’ve read in a long time. I’m in awe of her talent with words. What makes a monster? One of the main […]

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 […]

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 24 ★★★½

Steampunk Gallagher Girls Gallagher Girls was one of my favourite books when I was in high school, and when I first heard of this, the whole finishing school for spies thing, I immediately thought about Gallagher Girls. Lucky for me, what I expected is what I got! The spy lessons don’t take the forefront of the plot, but they’re mentioned […]

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]
