Book Review: Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Book Review: Gilt by Katherine Longshore

When I decided to try out more historical fiction, the one young adult series that kept getting recommended was Katherine Longshore’s Tudor-inspired books. High ratings all around, and who can resist a good Tudor book? Gilt centers on Catherine Howard’s reign which make my relationship with this book a bit strained, but I did still enjoy it.

On Controversies and Misconceptions

On Controversies and Misconceptions

Okay, I don’t want to make this too lengthy, but this drama keeps flaring up in my mind, and while I feel like I’ve spoken out about a lot of my thoughts, there are lingering issues that I think I will only let go of when they are made known to the reading public. Hence, this post. This is what’s been running through my head, and I need to get it out there, but if you do not feel like reading it, by all means don’t, and here, have a happy bunny and be on your way.

Book Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Book Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

These Broken Stars has all the ingredients that would usually blow me away and name it an all-time favorite. While I still did love it, I’m not quite over the moon because, yes, once again, the hype train is rolling along. This was one of the most hyped books of 2013, and while I suppose the hype was deserved, it’s hard for any book to live up to the high expectations that result. For me, however, it was the reading experience itself that was encumbered.

Introducing FUZZLING FLICKS: Rubinrot / Ruby Red

Introducing FUZZLING FLICKS: Rubinrot / Ruby Red

Welcome to a new feature! A while back, Christina (A Reader of Fictions) was tweeting about how she wanted to watch all the YA book-to-movie adaptations soon, and that most likely there would be alcohol involved. I asked if I could join her, because it sounded pretty hilarious. Together, we made it into a drinking game. I know. Brilliant. You’re all jealous you didn’t think of this first. So once in a while, we’re going to watch a movie adaptation together, drinking along the way, and we’ll let you know just how cliché and sinful each movie is.

Book Review: Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

Book Review: Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

As you might know, if you follow the blog, I’ve been searching eagerly for a good best friend romance book, so when I heard about Better Off Friends, it went on my must buy immediately list. I actually got it a few days before its release and read it the same day, in one sitting. At the end, while I’ll say that this is definitely cute, it could have been better.
