ARC Book Review: The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

Book Reviews | March 2, 2015

The Storyspinner came to me recommended by Christina – which is to say that she really liked it, so I figured I would as well. I was correct, of course, because Christina has such spectacular taste. The Storyspinner is a fun fantasy debut with super awesome shiiiiiiips. The Storyspinner and I did get off to a bit of […]

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Book Reviews | February 26, 2015

Oh, oh, The Winner’s Crime. This is certainly one of the most hyped up young adult series at the moment, and yet again I find myself not necessarily the black sheep – because I do like it – but the puzzled sheep, who really doesn’t understand the raving love for this series. With a slow, slow plot of […]

ARC Book Review: A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

ARC Book Review: A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

Book Reviews | February 18, 2015

Here’s a thing I almost forgot: how much I love Sleeping Beauty. In fact, as I read A Wicked Thing, which fits with the tone and story of the Disney movie, I realized it was probably my favorite Disney movie when I was little. My favorite Disney princess for sure. A Wicked Thing is an absolutely stunning debut […]

Audiobook Review: The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | February 13, 2015

I did it guys. I finished this series and sadly… I remain the black sheep who was passively entertained but a long way from enthralled. The Bitter Kingdom did some things that I liked, but in other ways remained boring to me. The series’ peak was The Crown of Embers for me, and I will just stay here […]

ARC Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

ARC Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Book Reviews | February 11, 2015

Red Queen is probably one of the most hyped up 2015 releases. To be honest, promise me magic and courtly politics, offer me that kind of beautiful cover, and I’m all in. I definitely enjoyed Red Queen and think it’s a promising start to an awesome series, but some parts of it fell a little bit flat. I […]

ARC Book Review: Inked by Eric Smith

ARC Book Review: Inked by Eric Smith

Book Reviews | February 3, 2015

It’s no big secret that I adore Eric Smith, who is not only awesome for all the work he does at Quirk Books, but also just an awesome social media personality (keep those puppy pics coming plzkthnx never change), and I personally greatly enjoyed his non-fiction book, The Geek’s Guide to Dating. So, when his YA fantasy debut […]

Audiobook Review: The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | January 21, 2015

I put off reading The Crown of Embers for ages because, well, after The Girl of Fire and Thorns, I just wasn’t that enthusiastic or convinced that the series was really something for me. However, I’d heard the audiobooks were pretty good, and with the added benefit of being able to multitask, I figured I should give it […]

ARC Book Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

ARC Book Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Book Reviews | October 20, 2014

Ahh, the book with the too-pretty cover. And it is pretty. Pretty pretty. I find it very hard to look past books with covers like that. But, okay, I need to review more than that. Snow Like Ashes is an entertaining start to what will likely be a fantastic fantasy series. Though I have some reservations, I liked […]
