Review: The Giver by Lois Lowry

Review: The Giver by Lois Lowry

May 3, 2015 Review 52 ★★★★

I know what you’re thinking: is Alise just now reading this book? No way! But yes, my dear friends, I am just now reading this. Anyway, it took me way too long to read this book, but I’m almost glad I’m reading it for the first time at the age I am now. Read more »

Review: The Caller by Juliet Marillier

Review: The Caller by Juliet Marillier

April 28, 2015 Review 20 ★★★★½

This review is only going to be a short one because for once my brain isn’t screaming fangirlish things it wants to talk about. THE CALLER is also the final book in a trilogy so a short, non spoilery review that will inevitably discuss the series generally seems apt. Read more »

Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

April 19, 2015 Review 42 ★★½

 Prepare yourselves, an unpopular opinion follows. Many people fell in love with this book but I, sadly, was not one of them. KISS OF DECEPTION flashbacks, anyone? (I was in the same boat with that one.) I have come to expect a lot from fantasy, as it is my favorite genre, and SNOW LIKE ASHES did not deliver. I struggled […]

Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

April 13, 2015 Review 30 ★★

The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring. Read more »
