Book Review: True by Hilary Duff

Book Reviews | May 17, 2013

Dear Elixir series, Once upon a time, I was young and naive. Your first installment, Elixir was so gleefully different and had such a mysterious and creepy vibe that I honestly couldn’t put it down until I finished. I was excited. Especially because I completely adore Hilary Duff. But maybe that made me see this in a more […]

ARC Book Review: Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton

Book Reviews | May 12, 2013

Some Quiet Place is an extremely imaginative and original debut novel by author Kelsey Sutton. The story is shrouded in mystery and takes some dark and creepy turns, which all in all make for a very memorable read. The concept of this novel… I just love it.

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

Book Reviews | May 5, 2013

The main character, Abby, is an example of a flawed, sometimes dumb, sometimes fickle main character that works. I may have questioned her at times […]

Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | May 2, 2013

The Girl of Fire and Thorns surely hits all the marks on the checklist of “YA high fantasy novels”; however, something about it just lacked that spark that would make this a truly memorable novel that has me coming back for more. It never really wow-ed me, which, I guess, I really expected to happen. (Maybe it is […]
