Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

July 12, 2017 Review 3 ★★★★

I saw THE GOLDEN COMPASS a long time ago on VHS but I never got around to reading the book. I was always disappointed they never made a movie sequel and I was too young to realize they were books. When the opportunity came around to finally check out this classic, I couldn’t resist. Right away, it’s easy to get […]

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

June 11, 2017 Review 5 ★★

When I read DEADLY LITTLE SECRET, I had a number of issues with it that stopped me from fully enjoying the book. Because everything had been set up in the first, I had higher hopes for the second book in the series, DEADLY LITTLE LIES. Unfortunately, the issues I found in the first book were just amplified. For a majority […]

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 […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

Sci fi is a genre that I have always struggled with, but I found THE DIABOLIC to be a fairly easy read to get into, despite overall mixed feelings. The World The world in this novel is pretty complex; there are different religions, classes of people, and government hierarchy. I […]

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

September 24, 2016 Review 36 ★★★★★

Spoiler free, just a few non-spoilery quotes! Once again, I find myself in the Post-Maas What Do I Do With My Life Crisis. As of right now, I’m sort of in denial and have convinced myself that everything is okay. I just got off a totally crazy roller coaster but I am going to be okay. “A storm is coming. […]

August 30, 2016 Giveaway 8

Our Rainbow Book Stack The lands of Furthermore and Ferenwood are filled with color-magic. Who doesn’t love the rainbow book aesthetic? After being uber-jealous of all the pretty bookshelf rainbows out there, we thought it would be fun to make our own attempt! Just a stack though because that level of commitment with over 300 books is a little intimidating. […]
