Book Review: The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore

Book Reviews | August 31, 2012

I dunno guys. I dunno. I’m not really sure why I’m still reading this series. I loved I Am Number Four, but The Power of Six was almost the most disappointing sequel imaginable. In this installment, we focus on two main storylines: Four and Nine in America, torn between the urge to confront Setrakus Ra and saving Sam, […]

Book Review: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Reviews | August 10, 2012

Quite a bit better than The Fellowship of the Ring. I just enjoyed it a lot more, despite the fact that it took me like 3 times longer to read. But hey, whatever, it’s vacation, there’s no rush. While I didn’t remember the movie version of The Two Towers being better than the movie version of the Fellowship, […]
