ARC Book Review: Beastkeeper by Cat Hellisen

ARC Book Review: Beastkeeper by Cat Hellisen

Book Reviews | February 5, 2015

Show me a book with an absolutely stunning cover and tell me it’s a Beauty and the Beast retelling, and that book will go to the TOP of my wishlist. Such was the case with Beastkeeper. This middle grade fairy tale retelling is an absolute delight from start to finish. What struck me about Beastkeeper right away was […]

ARC Book Review: I’m Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil

ARC Book Review: I’m Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil

Book Reviews | January 2, 2015

I’m Glad I Did is a book that probably wouldn’t be on my radar at all and that I wouldn’t be likely to pick up if it wasn’t at BEA in 2014. But I’m glad it was, because this historical fiction about the music industry is wonderfully written and authentic. Ultimately, I did want a little more from […]

ARC Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

ARC Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Book Reviews | December 29, 2014

I don’t typically read a lot of paranormal books, so I had never yet experienced Holly Black – a pretty big name author in YA. The opportunity to read The Darkest Part of the Forest came about thanks to BEA, and faeries are probably the paranormal creatures I’m most likely to like, so I was really excited to […]

ARC Book Review: The Boy Next Door by Katie Van Ark

Book Reviews | December 24, 2014

Two things I love? Figure skating and best friend romances. So, obviously, when I heard about The Boy Next Door, it immediately went on my, “OH MY GOSH CAN I HAVE THIS NOW PLZ I AM READY FOR THE CUTE” list. *cough* Yeah, that’s a list that may or may not really exist. ANYWAY. Cute and romantic, sure, […]

ARC Book Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

ARC Book Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan ..

Book Reviews | December 5, 2014

Though the hype sort of kept me from full-fledged fangirling over These Broken Stars, I definitely still enjoyed that book immensely. Unfortunately, This Shattered World did not exactly live up to its predecessor. Though the sci-fi aspects were still pretty cool, the characters just didn’t charm me. This Shattered World takes place in the same universe as These […]

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

Book Reviews | November 12, 2014

When I heard about The Walled City at the BEA Buzz Panel, I was immediately intrigued. It’s based on an actual city, Kowloon Walled City, in which many of the horrid dystopian-like elements of the book did happen. It sounded action-packed and realistic yet disturbing. Ultimately, though I found the story entertaining, I felt it was bogged down […]
