Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

January 25, 2015 Blog Tours, Giveaways, Reviews 7 ★★★★★

It’s important to note that I’m sitting down to write my review of The Mime Order roughly three weeks after finishing the book. The reason for this is quite simply that I was stunned, speechless, and didn’t know how I could possibly convey in words just how amazing this book (and this series) is. How do you do epic perfection justice?? HOWW???? HELP ME, BENNYKINS. OKAY THANK YOU. In the… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

Audiobook Review: The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

January 21, 2015 Audiobook Reviews, Reviews 4 ★★★½

I put off reading The Crown of Embers for ages because, well, after The Girl of Fire and Thorns, I just wasn’t that enthusiastic or convinced that the series was really something for me. However, I’d heard the audiobooks were pretty good, and with the added benefit of being able to multitask, I figured I should give it a shot. Ultimately, I will say the sequel is far better than… Read more »

Calling all YA readers and fans! As you may know (by the extensive promotion and squealing by yours truly for one), 2015 brings us the book-to-movie adaptation of one of my all time FAVORITE books: Kody Keplinger’s The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend.

Audiobook Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Audiobook Review: Feed by Mira Grant

January 7, 2015 Audiobook Reviews, Reviews 5 ★★★★½

I’ll be the first to admit that zombies are just not my thing. But Feed came into my life when Christina gifted me the box set with the promise that the blogging/politics/Newsroom-like aspects would probably win me over. And, well, they DID. Feed is an incredibly intriguing and realistic political thriller involving a zombie outbreak. Though it’s lengthy, there’s so much to love. I didn’t even have any nightmares! Winning… Read more »
