Book Review: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | January 27, 2014

ARC Book Review: Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

Book Reviews | January 23, 2014

While it may seem like the young adult dystopian genre is being inundated, I still keep reading them, hoping to find something fresh. And Uninvited definitely delivered on that front. It was a chilling and thrilling world, a future I could see the realism of, and it even put a ship on my ship list. With stories like […]
