Book Reviews | January 20, 2014

How to express in words just how much I loved it. But here we go. I will make a valiant effort. That promo comparison “Graceling […]

I’ve finally accumulated enough books again to be worth sharing and YES I decided to show them to you in a VLOG. *screams* This is my first vlog since September or so. So that’s interesting. But it was actually really fun, so I’m going to try to keep doing this for book hauls. Also, book hauls with 9 […]

ARC Book Review: Avalon by Mindee Arnett

Book Reviews | January 16, 2014

When I heard that there would be a genuine hardcore science fiction space opera coming in the Young Adult genre, I immediately had to jump on it. I had to have that shit. And in many ways it really lived up to my expectations. Certain parts were a bit lackluster, but overall it was an exciting thrill ride. […]

ARC Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Book Reviews | January 13, 2014

Almost a full year I have been suffering the desperate longing for this book, after Everbound tore out my heart and smashed it into pieces with its killer cliffhanger. I managed to get my hands on an ARC and had to read it right away. There was no other option. Then, save for the first 60 pages, I […]
