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 […]

5 Things About The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clark

July 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I forgot to take notes You know a book is an easy read when you forget to take notes for the review. I literally only have half a page, compared to the three quarters to whole page I usually fill. It’s fantastic that I was able to lose myself in the story, especially with how stressed I’ve been, but it […]

April 12, 2017 Review 31 ★★★★½

I forgot how gorgeous Laini Taylor’s writing is I remembered Laini Taylor’s writing was amazing, but I forgot exactly how beautiful it is! Nothing I say could possible do it justice but it’s the most well written thing I’ve read in a long time. I’m in awe of her talent with words. What makes a monster? One of the main […]

5 Things About Frostblood by Elly Blake

February 26, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★

Fast paced and easy to read Guess who read 50% of this book in one sitting? Yepppp it’s that addictive. Right from the first chapter the plot gets moving and it’s hard pull yourself away. Everything moves forward so fast, you keep turning the pages to read more. No lengthy descriptions weigh this fantasy down. Personally, I would have liked […]

5 Things About The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

5 Things About The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

February 9, 2017 Review 16 ★★★★

The most high fantasy thing I’ve read in a while I can’t remember the last time I read a novel where humans weren’t a species featured at all. THE ALCHEMISTS OF LOOM has three races/ species: dragons, fenthri, and chimera (!!). They’re humanoid in shape but that’s almost where the resemblance ends (fenthri would be the closest). The tensions and history between […]

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

January 29, 2017 Review 32 ★★★★

Intimidating Hype I was scared to start CARAVAL. Every book that gets a lot of hype is incredibly daunting because of that fear of  “What if I don’t like it?” There have been times where I’ve had high expectations as a result of overwhelming praise from book bloggers which the book couldn’t meet and so I was left disappointed. Fortunately CARAVAL […]

5 Things About The Rose And The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

January 27, 2017 Review 30 ★★★★★

Feelings intensify THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL SO MANY THINGS!! From squealing because A+ romance, to terror and suspense, and incredible sadness because of character deaths and things. Seriously, I was struggling to hold back tears while driving. I couldn’t deal (in the best way possible). Connections with more characters This increased connection to characters is the reason for the […]
