Review: Losing Gabriel by Lurlene McDaniel

Review: Losing Gabriel by Lurlene McDaniel

June 12, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

LOSING GABRIEL is an incredibly realistic contemporary novel about what it is like to be a young adult facing real-world challenges and having to take responsibility for your actions. 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

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 […]

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 […]
