Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

January 6, 2018 Review 5 ★★★

When I read THE DIABOLIC I was confident in saying that it really added something unique to the YA genre. THE EMPRESS, however, is on a whole new level. It was a pretty epic book, but it was a book that is going to inspire some mixed feelings, simply because everything you thought you knew will be tested. THE EMPRESS […]

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

January 3, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

I forgot to take notes Like the first novel, RETRIBUTION RAILS was very addictive. It is a bit slower pacing wise than VENGEANCE ROAD, but the plot is much more complicated and layered. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I was almost late for the train one day when I just HAD to finish the final 50 pages because I […]

Since I actually used Excel to track my reading this year, I’m actually going to attempt […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

December 24, 2017 Review 8 ★★★★

After really enjoying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING (dogs) by Morgan Matson, I wanted to check out her other books. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE had somewhat of a fun, interesting premise as well: Emily’s best friend has disappeared, but she left a list behind full of things to complete. As an introverted person I could definitely relate to Emily and her struggle […]

December 21, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 16

As much as I love reading about kick-ass girls in fantasy novels, sometimes I just wish they were a little more like me:¬†uncoordinated, clumsy, and with absolutely zero upper body strength. If I had to live in the world they do, I’d probably die… Probably, if it weren’t for my wits. It’s so exciting when I do come across a […]

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

December 18, 2017 Review 10 ★★½

I’ll start off by saying that I really enjoyed THE WINNER’S CURSE, the first novel in this series. However, this installment, THE WINNER’S CRIME, feels very much like a filler book. In fact, I read it a few weeks ago and can barely tell you anything that happened in it. I’m definitely in the minority with this one, but I […]
