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 […]

5 Things About The Crown by Kiera Cass

5 Things About The Crown by Kiera Cass

June 26, 2016 Review 18 ★★

There isn’t much I can say about THE CROWN that differs from my review of THE HEIR. There were improvements, but there were also things that were much worse, yay! Eadlyn isn’t AS bad as she was before! In my review of the previous installment I called Eadlyn “the very definition of a spoiled, selfish brat” who “believes she is […]

It is also about love, loss, mistakes, and miracles. The novel immediately introduces you to three protagonists: the studious and good-natured Alana Kennedy, Dawson Burke, who has a chip on his […]

Review: Wanderlost by Jen Malone

Review: Wanderlost by Jen Malone

June 6, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

“But now that I see all this and realize I couldn’t even have dreamed any of it because it was all so far off my radar, I have this weird uncomfortable twinge in my chest. Because…what else haven’t I bothered to dream, not thinking things could get any better?” WANDERLOST first piqued my interest when I read the synopsis. A […]

5 Things About The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

May 23, 2016 Review 22 ★★★★

This is a spoiler free review; there is spoiler section that follows but it is hidden in a spoiler tag. This book might lead to my insanity. When I read the last page of THE RAVEN KING and closed the book, I was a little … dazed. I cycled through various emotions before landing on and running with confusion. THE […]

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 […]
