ARC Review: Permanent Record + Author Interview

March 12, 2013 Review 10 ★★★★

I really enjoyed PERMANENT RECORD. It was probably the most.. real book I have ever read. The cast of characters was phenomenal, each one different. I was surprised at how even the minor characters added so much depth to the story.Badi Hessamizadeh, AKA “Bud Hess,” might be just my favorite male narrator ever. He is picked on in school for […]

The story starts out with Cooper negotiating another chance at life. Only, he doesn’t think it will change anything. Lucy, who just happens to be the Devil’s sister, thinks otherwise-and she earns Cooper a second chance in Heaven if he can find a girl named Grace.

ARC Review: Stung

ARC Review: Stung

March 10, 2013 Review 24

A standalone dystopian? I know, it’s almost unheard of. I actually have a huge amount of respect for the author because she didn’t feel like she had to create a trilogy out of this. There could have been, but Wiggins made the decision to wrap everything up in this one book. Fiona wakes up in her house, but immediately notices […]

Review: Dance of Shadows

March 10, 2013 Review 20 ★★★★

I went through a few different stages when I decided to read it. I had originally thought it was a paranormal novel, then when I read the summary again and there wasn’t any hint […]

March 6, 2013 Meme 28

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.     This is my first time doing WoW here at Readers in Wonderland, and I’m afraid it isn’t going to look as good as if Alise was doing it, because I don’t have/can’t get those pretty name things she has. Yet. I will make sure to have them next week. […]

Dual Review: The Nightmare Affair

Dual Review: The Nightmare Affair

March 5, 2013 Review 14 ★★

Important NOTICE:  Both reviewers received their copies from Netgalley using two separate Netgalley accounts. No eGalley is ever shared at Readers in Wonderland.  When I first learned of the existence of this book, I may or may not have freaked out. Supernatural beings that feed off dreams? A big murder mystery? The sounds of budding romance? I was excited. Very excited. That […]

Discussion: Why You May Be Lying In Your Reviews

March 5, 2013 Discussion 56

Going back through my review archive, I saw a review I did awhile back, right when I started blogging, and cringed. I gave a book five stars that was more deserving of two or three. Now, I know this doesn’t sound like a big deal to some, but if you take your credibility seriously and pride yourself on honesty, you […]
