Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

November 6, 2017 Review 3 ★★★★

Hold up. A Sarah J. Maas book I actually rated four stars and not five? Well, yes. But let me explain. First of all, you need to know TOWER OF DAWN runs parallel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. It is not a sequel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. So remove the latter from your memory for a moment and go back to […]

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

October 19, 2017 Review 5 ★★★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 5 ★★★

  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: 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac

Review: 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac

July 20, 2017 Review 10 ★★

When I first read the synopsis for 10 THINGS I CAN SEE FROM HERE, I knew I had to read it. If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you might know about my long struggle with social anxiety, something I don’t talk about that much. This book immediately intrigued me because I knew I would be able to relate […]

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 […]
