Review: Castle in the Air– Diana Wynne Jones

Review: Castle in the Air– Diana Wynne Jones

March 10, 2015 Review 13 ★★★½

So when I started reading Castle in the Air, I was expecting a sequel to Howl’s Moving Castle. To my surprise, this book was not so much a sequel as it was a completely different story that happens to take place in the same world with some of the same characters. MORAL OF THE STORY: READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE YOU BUY RANDOM THINGS ON THE INTERNET. Read more »

In fact, it exceeded my expectations, which is saying something considering the very high standards I have for Holly Black’s books. So this review should really be called, “how many different words can Rachel think of that mean amazing?” I daresay a lot, and yes, I am going to use all of them. Read more »

Review: Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta

Review: Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta

January 5, 2015 Review 24 ★★★★

I am 90% certain almost everything I say here I have already said in my review for the first two Lumatere Chronicle novels. Yet that’s not going to stop me from saying it all again. I will drill these words into your head until you pick up this series. Because you have to. They’re set in a really brilliant, detailed world that is dark and fun with the most amazing characters you will care more about than the plot. Read more »
