5 Things About Gap Year in Ghost Town

5 Things About Gap Year in Ghost Town

October 31, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★

A different kind of Halloween read This is a book about ghosts, but it’s not a scary haunting thriller type ghost story. It’s much lighter and more enjoyable. Which I’m grateful for because ghost stories creep me out. Percy Jackson x Supernatural I know we hate book comparisons, but this just fits so well! Anton reminds me a lot of […]

Review:  A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

Review: A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

October 25, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★★

“What are we drinking to?” “The living,” said Rhy. “The dead,” said Alucard and Lila at the same time. The only adjective I can think of to describe A CONJURING OF LIGHT is beautiful. What a wonderful ending to an even more amazing story. It was everything I knew (and didn’t know) I wanted from the final book in this […]

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

October 19, 2017 Review 10 ★★★½

First, I have to talk about how much I absolutely adored SIX OF CROWS. It was different than anything I’ve ever read and the characters and the dynamic they had with each other were glorious. So, needless to say, I had pretty high expectations for CROOKED KINGDOM, which might be why I liked the book but didn’t completely love it. […]

Review: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

October 10, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

  Alexandra Bracken can’t really write anything poorly, so I was looking forward to see how she tackled writing a middle-grade novel. The results? I enjoyed THE DESPERATE TALE OF PROSPER REDDING, but it wasn’t quite what I expected. First off, I feel like I have to warn people of the HUGE cliffhanger this book leaves off on. Knowing that […]

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

August 6, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★★

About a year ago, A COURT OF MIST AND FURY totally broke our rating scale. While A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN didn’t quite meet that new standard, it definitely came close. Plus, the second novel in this series just holds a really special place in my heart because my ship was validated it was an incredibly emotional journey for […]

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

July 12, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★

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 10 ★★

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 […]
