March 1, 2015 Monthly Wrap-Ups 1

February 2015: in which… meh? Wait, February’s over? Honestly, I don’t even know what to say about this month. Work sucked until I pretty much had a breakdown, but eh, I have to find a new job soon anyway. I spent most of my weekends sleeping and lazing and buying the final things to furnish the new apartment… and voila. Month over. …Okay? February Reads Books Read: Red Queen by… Read more »

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

February 27, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★

It’s probably worth noting that I very rarely read novellas or prequels unless I am heavily invested in the series. Now, Fairest was at the top of my wishlist anyway because The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all time favorite series. This prequel novella gives me a new appreciation for Meyer’s craftsmanship in terms of her story and her characters. One of the things I love most in books… Read more »

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

February 26, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★

Oh, oh, The Winner’s Crime. This is certainly one of the most hyped up young adult series at the moment, and yet again I find myself not necessarily the black sheep – because I do like it – but the puzzled sheep, who really doesn’t understand the raving love for this series. With a slow, slow plot of convenience, with far too much focus on a romance I don’t ship… Read more »

I thought for this list I would have a GINORMOUS list that would be super hard to trim down, but that actually isn’t the case! I focused mostly on sci-fi and fantasy series – because then there is actual world saving going on and such – and then the most sparkling… Read more »

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

February 20, 2015 Reviews 7 ★★

I start this review with pretty much a broken heart. Anyone who knows me has probably heard me yelling about my love for Cora Carmack. She could do no wrong in my eyes. Then… Inspire happened. Inspire was an attempt to bring us something new: new adult paranormal romance. Until now, the only new adult books have pretty much been contemporary romances, so it was exciting to hear that this… Read more »
