Book Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Book Reviews | August 3, 2013

Throne of Glass is one of those books that has had a massive amount of hype. People fell in love with it last year, and if you look around the book blogosphere now, tons of bloggers are raving about its sequel, Crown of Midnight. Because they all have ARCs. Bitches. So I’m late to this party and MAN I feel […]

Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | May 2, 2013

The Girl of Fire and Thorns surely hits all the marks on the checklist of “YA high fantasy novels”; however, something about it just lacked that spark that would make this a truly memorable novel that has me coming back for more. It never really wow-ed me, which, I guess, I really expected to happen. (Maybe it is […]

ARC Book Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

ARC Book Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

Book Reviews | November 30, 2012

Ellen Oh was highly ambitious with Prophecy. While the concept and setting were highly attractive and creative, at the end of the day all I can think is, “I want more.” And for a change, I don’t mean a sequel. I want more of this book. I feel like where Prophecy ultimately will lose in popularity and readers […]

Book Review: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Book Reviews | September 7, 2012

Wow guys. Wow. Honestly, this book is probably worth 5 oranges, and I might change that later, but I missed some things. Mostly that happened due to me reading this during the first, sleep-deprived, exhausting week of grad school. When it comes to (I guess YA) fantasy novels, this is the way you do it. Seriously. Awesome worldbuilding. […]
