November 27, 2012 Review 0 ★★★★½

Riveting conclusion, indeed. I’ll try not to put any spoilers from GOLIATH in this, at least not without warning you. I wish I had taken notes because there were some things I remembered I wanted to point out… I’ll probably start taking them. (Doubt it.) Anyway, I can’t believe these aren’t more widely read! During my short read of GOLIATH, […]

November 26, 2012 Review 2 ★★★★½

SPOILERS AHEAD.   I have to apologize to all of the people that recommended these to me and I still put them off, I was so surprised when I read THE IRON KING and fell in love with everything between those pages. If you have read my other reviews, you know how picky I can be! What mainly put me […]

I’m probably a little too psyched about this because I just finished it but here we go! You can read my review of The Iron King here. After a bad bout of YA faerie novels I had resigned myself to not reading them, thinking they were all the same. One I did enjoy was Wicked Lovely, even thought it was […]

November 20, 2012 Review 4 ★★★★½

I liked this book better than the first in the series, and you can see how much I loved that one! These are just so, so good! I was iffy when I picked up LEVIATHAN AND BEHEMOTH at the library, I didn’t think they looked that appealing or similar to what I usually read. I’m glad I stepped out of […]

November 17, 2012 Review 2 ★★★

Well. Wellllllll… I usually have pretty strong opinions when finishing a book, (cue agreeable scoffs) but this one made my mind pretty jumbled. Did I like this? Was this gold or a horrendously underdeveloped story of nonsense with plot holes? It took me about an hour of the above before I came to this brilliant conclusion: it’s both. Kinda. And […]

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow

November 14, 2012 Review 5 ★½

I wanted to love this so much. It has such a great premise, and it could have been so much more. Wasserman’s other novels were awesome and I expected this one to be the same but it fell short. I kept reading it because I had high hopes it would become better-many reviews had said it was slow in the […]

Review: The Iron King

November 11, 2012 Review 4 ★★★★½

This review has been a long time coming! By that I mean I should have read this as soon as it came out! I’m usually not one for faeries because they are portrayed as kind of cutesy/silly rather than the ones we read about in poems and myths. From these, I can say that the faeries in THE IRON KING […]
