Most Wanted: August 2016

Uncategorized | July 30, 2016

It’s almost August! Cue the drama, the calls of, “I’m not ready,” because yes, time has flown by once again and oh my god I’m almost a quarter of a century old. But for books, it’s just good news. We’re approaching the end of the summer “slow season” and there are some GREAT titles coming up. August 2nd […]

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Book Reviews | July 28, 2016

I did it. I killed the beast – this 600+ page monster of a novel. It took me three weeks to get through it not only because Pokémon Go was released in the same time. And it pains me to say it, but I do feel like it was a waste of those three weeks. When I saw […]

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Book Reviews | July 23, 2016

The hype for Nimona started long before it was published as a book. Several of my friends were already raving about it as it was gradually being posted online. That plus Noelle’s STUNNING drawing style made this a graphic novel I definitely could not resist. And I can say with certainty that I feel it deserves the hype. […]

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Reviews | July 21, 2016

The Rose and the Dagger was one of my most anticipated books of 2016, being that it followed the flawless and engrossing The Wrath and the Dawn, one of my favorite books of 2015. Honestly, words will never really do it justice. This book – and this series – is wholly unique. So much so that I finished […]

Book Haul #36: Gotta Have ‘Em All

I’m not completely obsessed with Pokémon Go, what are you talking about? I also like books. Sometimes. Maybe not so much this week. BUT WHATEVER, I must complete my collections. Purchased The Skylighter by Becky Wallace: It’s been a while since this book came out, but I read it as an eARC and LOVED it, so it was […]

Book Review: Wanderlost by Jen Malone

Book Review: Wanderlost by Jen Malone

Book Reviews | July 9, 2016

Sometimes you just need something cute. After being sick for a week and falling slowly into a reading slump, I couldn’t help but order, receive, and then immediately read Wanderlost, which Christina was all atwitter about. This book is basically the perfect summer book: cute, sweet, funny, and full of European love. Wanderlost is about Aubree, a recently […]

Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Book Reviews | July 7, 2016

Sigh. This is one of those series that gets raved about all the time by everyone. It’s one of the bestselling YA series of all time. And in theory there’s nothing that “wrong” with it. But I do not get everyone’s fascination. Not one bit. I enjoyed the first book quite a bit, but right from the start, […]
