ARC Book Review: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas

ARC Book Review: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas

September 3, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

The Perilous Sea, or as I like to call it “THE SEA DRAGON COVER I HAS A SEA DRAGON FWEEEEEEEEEEE”, was – as you might already be able to tell – one of my very highly anticipated books of 2014. It’s the sequel to The Burning Sky, which I absolutely loved in spite of its flaws. Though The Perilous Sea continues to fall short in certain areas, by the end… Read more »

Top Ten Book Characters Who Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

September 2, 2014 Memes, Top Ten Tuesdays 5

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I had a really tough time with this topic. Because, like, how do you ever even decide. Do you pick characters you relate to? Who you have something in common with? Do you pick your favorite ships so you could can stare creepily? Do you pick the hotties so you can… Read more »

Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2014

September 1, 2014 Monthly Wrap-Ups 6

August 2014: the month of whatever even August is already over! And I’m still unemployed with no leads. *sigh* But this month was great for me in reading. I fell head over heels for audiobooks, which meant I got through a LOT of books. I actually got a great head start on my September review copies too. And overall, I was really productive on the blog – achieving a new… Read more »

Book Review: The Swift Boys & Me by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: The Swift Boys & Me by Kody Keplinger

August 31, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

If you know me, you’ll know that one author I will always shout about, no matter what, is Kody Keplinger. Her young adult novels just have a way of being really emotional for me, and her refreshing voice perfectly conveys messages that I find to be extremely important to teenagers. Each of her books has really touched my heart in different ways, so when I heard that she was bringing… Read more »

Book Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray

August 29, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★

The Diviners is one of those books that has been on my TBR list and my bookshelf for AGES, but I just never got around to. And, I mean, really, who can blame me – it’s almost 600 freaking pages. So this is when book club comes in to save the day! Book Club: The Way to Get Debby to Read Chunky Books™. Though I needed that extra push, I’m… Read more »

August 28, 2014 Book Nerd Problems, Discussions 14

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #23. CLIFFHANGERS I’m actually surprised I hadn’t covered this topic already, because it seems like a rather obvious one. But I dunno about you guys – lately, I’ve been hit over the head with terrible cliffhanger after terrible cliffhanger. Now, I’m not saying that ALL cliffhangers are awful. Indeed, it’s… Read more »

ARC Book Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Biren

ARC Book Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Biren

August 27, 2014 Reviews 8 ★★★

The Vault of Dreamers instantly intrigued me with its premise, which basically promised me some mix of Big Brother and Inception. The result is a really intriguing thriller with some awesome science fiction aspects. However, with a confusing romance and cut-off ending putting me on the hook for a series, it wasn’t quite the total package. The premise is indeed what got me hooked, and from page one I was… Read more »
