Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

June 11, 2017 Review 5 ★★

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 […]

5 Things About Heartless by Marissa Meyer

5 Things About Heartless by Marissa Meyer

May 21, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★

Wonderland (sorry, Hearts) is a strange world I don’t know why I forgot how strange Wonderland is. I mean, just the creatures that live there are weird, and then there’s the customs and every day practices. Quirky is the best way to describe this world and I’m not sure how I felt about it. Something I did love though was […]

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

May 3, 2017 Review 5 ★★★

There is a lot of love surrounding Laurie Faria Stolarz’s books. Both of my friends that do not enjoy reading have read her books and liked them. While I found DEADLY LITTLE SECRET to be entertaining, I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it when I was younger. One of my biggest issues with this […]

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 24 ★★★½

Steampunk Gallagher Girls Gallagher Girls was one of my favourite books when I was in high school, and when I first heard of this, the whole finishing school for spies thing, I immediately thought about Gallagher Girls. Lucky for me, what I expected is what I got! The spy lessons don’t take the forefront of the plot, but they’re mentioned […]

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

February 23, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★½

Victorian Era Forensics If I’m going to read a crime novel, it’s going to be a historical one! Victorian and regency eras in particular seem to be my favourites. As a fan of science, I love seeing how it’s used to solve things without modern advancements. The vet side of me also loves the autopsies and science things. I’m a […]
