5 Things About Gilded by Christina Farley

5 Things About Gilded by Christina Farley

August 20, 2017 Review 5 ★★★

Korean Mythology I love all types of mythology, and it was so exciting to see GILDED come out with it’s heavy Korean influence. Korean culture is something I know very little part. Luckily for use, the mythology plays a heavy part in the story of GILDED! I could not deal with the romance The romance is what ruined the book […]

5 Things About Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

5 Things About Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

August 2, 2017 Review 6 ★★

Not a retelling like I thought When I first heard this title, I thought I was getting a retelling of Snow White. It’s not. The closest thing to a retelling are the pills that Snow takes in the beginning (she named them after the seven dwarves and the associated emotions). It’s actually the start of a series too, which I […]

Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

July 28, 2017 Review 8 ★★

When I first started reading HUNTED, I was really liking it. It had a strong start with family ties and excellent development. But then I kept reading. Halfway through the book, I realized that pretty much nothing had happened and then I started asking myself “Am I reading the same book as everyone else?” ┬áMy biggest problem can’t even be […]

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

July 12, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★

I saw THE GOLDEN COMPASS a long time ago on VHS but I never got around to reading the book. I was always disappointed they never made a movie sequel and I was too young to realize they were books. When the opportunity came around to finally check out this classic, I couldn’t resist. Right away, it’s easy to get […]

5 Things About The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clark

July 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I forgot to take notes You know a book is an easy read when you forget to take notes for the review. I literally only have half a page, compared to the three quarters to whole page I usually fill. It’s fantastic that I was able to lose myself in the story, especially with how stressed I’ve been, but it […]

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 […]

5 Fictional Worlds I Want to Visit (but maybe not live in)

5 Fictional Worlds I Want to Visit (but maybe not live in)

April 24, 2017 Discussion 30

One of the reasons I love fantasy so much is the worlds it lets us visit. We can emerge ourselves in so many different environments, experiencing a lot of different fictional cultures and people. Some of those places are so amazing, I really wish I could visit them. Sitia While Ixia would be either boring or unpleasant (so cold and […]
