ARC Book Review: Period 8 by Chris Crutcher

ARC Book Review: Period 8 by Chris Crutcher

Book Reviews | March 31, 2013

Period 8… what are you? Full disclosure: if I hadn’t received an ARC of this, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up. I’m not a big contemporary person, and this isn’t contemporary romance either – which is what I normally pick up from the genre. So the fact that it absorbed me like it did and made me […]

ARC Book Review: Taken by Erin Bowman

ARC Book Review: Taken by Erin Bowman

Book Reviews | March 28, 2013

Taken can best be described as The Hunger Games meets The Maze Runner. I know it’s typical to compare any dystopian novel to The Hunger Games, but reading this one really gave me the same kind of vibe (maybe not so much as the first book, but the overall series for sure). Well, I obviously love The Hunger […]

Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Book Reviews | March 24, 2013

Shadow and Bone… what took me so long? Considering how much I love a good fantasy, it’s kind of embarrassing how long it took me to get around to this one. This was not just a good fantasy – it was a great one. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The blurb on the cover by Veronica Roth reads, “Unlike […]
