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 […]

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

June 11, 2017 Review 10 ★★

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 […]

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

May 12, 2017 Review 12 ★★★

ROYCE ROLLS is a novel that stands out against other books in the YA genre. It is definitely unique, and fans of reality television are going to want to check it out. As someone who has a love-hate relationship with dramatic television, I had mixed feelings about this book. The novel starts out in the future and then flashes back, […]

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

May 3, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

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 Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 22 ★★½

I think it was a miss After hearing mixed reviews (both online and from friends who DNFed early on) I was really hesitant to start TALON. I love Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey and Blood of Eden books, so I really was hoping this was okay, but the mixed reception had me worried. And unfortunately everything my friends said was true. […]

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

3 Things About Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

April 3, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

After enjoying PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken last year, I was pretty excited for WAYFARER. PASSENGER delivered a grand adventure with time travel done right, so I was expecting the sequel to be the same. While a great read, WAYFARER got a little slowed down by smaller details. Exploring more relationships Not only were we introduced to new characters, new sides […]

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 […]
