Review: The Warden’s Daughter by Jerry Spinelli Blog Tour

January 13, 2017 Blog Tour, Review 24

Review A fond memory of mine in middle school was when my English teacher read us chapters of STARGIRL by Jerry Spinelli every day. STARGIRL was an interesting, unique read that made me think, and THE WARDEN’S DAUGHTER affected me similarly. Cammie, the main character, is not exactly easy to get along with but she definitely grows on you. Once […]

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

December 15, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★½

Inspired by classic tales The synopsis states that THE WRATH AND THE DAWN is inspired by A Thousand Arabian Nights, which is a story I’ve always been meaning to read because the few retellings I’ve read have been amazing. THE WRATH OF THE DAWN was no exception, but I wish there had been more of the story telling involved throughout […]

5 Things About Crimson Bound By Rosamund Hodge

November 23, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

THE DIABOLIC is a fairly brutal YA science fiction novel. Sci fi is a genre that I have always struggled with, but I found THE DIABOLIC to be a fairly easy read to get into, despite overall mixed feelings. The World The world in this novel is pretty complex; there are different religions, classes of people, and government hierarchy. I […]

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

October 29, 2016 Review 8 ★★★½

Back to the mystery and intrigue One of the things I was worried about was that I would find BLACK HEART as meh as I found RED GLOVE. Fortunately for me, we get more heists and intrigue right from the get go. It was more fast paced than the second book which helped a lot and had less romance angst. […]
