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 […]

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

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

THE DIABOLIC is a fairly brutal YA science fiction novel. 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 […]
