ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Book Reviews | April 15, 2015

I’ve been super excited about this mini-genie trend that’s popped up in YA the last couple of years, having loved The Art of Wishing and liked Exquisite Captive, but I suppose it was only fitting that at some point I’d come across one that I really didn’t care for. Becoming Jinn is – unfortunately – a boring flat […]

Book Review: Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Book Review: Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Book Reviews | April 2, 2015

Wow. Just wow. I loved Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph, so my expectations for Mortal Heart were understandably high. But it met them. Exceptionally well. This is one of the best series conclusions I have ever read, and the series as a whole has forever gained a place on my favorites shelf. Mortal Heart tells Annith’s story. Annith […]
