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 […]

5 Things About Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

5 Things About Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

May 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★

Look at the precious growing up The gang have started to enter their teenage years. They’re growing up, maturing, and entering YA territory. It’s hilarious watching them go through awkward stages, and puberty, and developing little crushes. But they’re also starting to learn more about the world around them and struggle with more complicated¬†ethical concepts (an example is Hermione and […]

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 Uprooted by Naomi Novik

5 Things About Uprooted by Naomi Novik

May 8, 2016 Review 24 ★★★½

It reminded me of Juliet Marillier novels… but not as magical I enjoyed UPROOTED. But the entire time I was reading it I couldn’t help but start comparing it to Juliet Mariller’s novels, particularly HEART’S BLOOD,¬†because the story is similar in style and plot. Unfortunately for Uprooted, it couldn’t even begin to compare to the level Juliet Mariller has set […]

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: Thorn by Intisar Khanani

Review: Thorn by Intisar Khanani

May 2, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★

When I saw THORN on Netgalley I had to request it because I’d heard so many good things about it and it’s hard to say no to a fairy tale retelling. I can confirm that breaking my requesting ban was a good idea for this book.¬† THORN is a solid retelling of the goose girl fairy tale. It has all […]

5 Things About Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

5 Things About Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

April 28, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★

Girl disguised as boy trope HELLO ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TROPES EVER! I seriously can’t get enough of these stories. Some are better than others and I must say WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER was pretty good. For one thing Lee had to actually deal with her period while on the road with other people! This is a big dilemma […]
