Review: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

Review: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

July 4, 2016 Review 22 ★★

“There is strong danger in a person who can create such powerful deceit they can no longer distinguish their own lies from the truth.” The idea behind IVORY AND BONE hooked me pretty quick: “A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.” Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite stories of all time so, clearly, I was excited for […]

Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

June 24, 2016 Review 32 ★★★★

WITH MALICE unravels a mystery about what happened after two best friends take a school trip to Italy, with one returning with missing memories and one not returning at all. The entire novel is driven by the need to answer one question: what happened? Told from Jill’s point of view, we find ourselves in the same position she is. Due […]

Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

June 20, 2016 Review 20 ★★★½

“That is not the way of it. Your future is not set in stone, my dearest star. A coin turns on itself a number of times before it lands.” THE WRATH AND THE DAWN was a favorite read of mine last year, largely in part due to the couple I shipped (they are pretty epic). But what of the sequel? […]

5 Things About The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

5 Things About The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

May 19, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

“There’s no escaping death. Either I’ll be defeated and therefore die, or I’ll triumph but live with the guilt of sentencing the girl to the end. There is no such thing as a winner in the Game.” The characters lack depth. There are a wide variety of characters in THE CROWN’S GAME, but unfortunately, I couldn’t connect to any of […]

Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

May 13, 2016 Review 37 ★★★★★

Guys. Guys. GUYS! Stop everything you’re doing. Pick up the nearest copy of A COURT OF MIST AND FURY (as long as you’ve read the first book), even if it requires you going down to the bookstore. If someone else has it, rip it out of their hands. Bargain using your firstborn child, or your soul if you already gave up your firstborn child for the last Maas book. You’re not going to want to miss this. Read more »

5 Things About Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

5 Things About Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

May 4, 2016 Review 28 ★★★

“You cannot stand astride the line between good and evil, life and death, for long. It will destroy you.” FLAMECASTER is the first book I’ve read from Cinda Williams Chima. Although I’ve heard that you don’t need to read her previous books to understand the spinoff, I feel like there is a lot I didn’t fully appreciate. While I can’t […]

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

April 10, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

‘You are this country, Amani.’ He spoke more quietly now. ‘More alive than anything ought to be in this place. All fire and gunpowder, with one finger always on the trigger.” The hype for this book was strong. So strong I couldn’t resist ordering it online with rush shipping even though I didn’t read it right away. I never said […]
