Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | September 15, 2016

Even I, by now, am wondering if Uncle Rick is just milking it. I mean, to start up yet another series in the same universe is pretty damning. But at the same time, I love Greek mythology and the possibility of getting glimpses of Percy too much to resist. The Hidden Oracle is fun but still a bit […]

ARC Book Review: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | September 27, 2015

Oh man. First of all, I just want to say ten thousand thank yous to Tiemen and the American Book Center for making it possible for me to read this early. It might very well be the most exciting review copy I’ve ever had the honor of receiving. Those who know me will probably know that Uncle Rick […]

Book Review: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | December 18, 2014

It’s here. The end of an era. The end of Percy Jackson. NO NO, DON’T CRY, DEBBY. Breathe. In many ways, this was a nice conclusion to the Heroes of Olympus series, but in other ways, I couldn’t help but be frustratingly disappointed. So this review will be a long one. You’ve been warned. The Blood of Olympus […]

ARC Book Review: Exiquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios

Book Reviews | October 13, 2014

I’m going to be straight up honest with you guys (I mean, when am I ever not?) and tell you that I didn’t have high expectations for this book at all. I’d seen so many negative reviews and some friends of mine didn’t even finish it… I totally thought it would be terrible, and that I’d quit after […]

Book Review: Eona by Alison Goodman

Book Review: Eona by Alison Goodman

Book Reviews | August 22, 2014

After reading Eon for book club and unanimously loving it, we decided to read Eona as well, so hopefully we could gush more and more about this amazing high fantasy duology. Now, while 3.5 oranges is not a BAD rating and Eona is not a BAD book, this was disappointing to me in several ways… unfortunately. It did […]

Book Review: Eon by Alison Goodman

Book Reviews | May 23, 2014

Eon is a Chinese mythology-inspired fantasy story involving dragons and genderbending, so obviously when I heard about it, it went on my GAH-MUST-HAVE-THIS-NOW list. Due to its length, I needed some extra persuasion to actually read it, but that’s when I can always count on book club. I breezed through and absolutely adored this story. Right off the […]

ARC Book Review: The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain

Book Reviews | March 10, 2014

I’m not sure what to really say about The Shadow Prince, because in spite of its many and glaring faults, I found myself really enjoying this story. It’s certainly not a book that will work for every reader, but it worked for me, and I’ll look back on it rather fondly.

Book Review: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | January 27, 2014

At it’s close-to-600 pages (seriously? was all of that necessary?), The House of Hades took me an upsettingly long time to read. Clearly I read the rest of the series when I was not on a semi-strict reading schedule of two books per week, heh. Also I had more free time then. But all in all, Rick Riordan […]
