ARC Book Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

ARC Book Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Book Reviews | May 28, 2016

It’s kind of weird to start a review with an arguably positive rating on a rather disappointed note. But that’s kind of just how it is when one of you absolute favorite authors writes a book that is still good but didn’t exactly blow you away. I enjoyed This Savage Song, but I do feel like it’s not […]

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

Book Reviews | April 27, 2015

As soon as I saw the cover of Magonia, I was convinced I had to read it. I mean, we all know that I’m shallow as fuck when it comes to book covers, but add in that blurb by none other than Neil Gaiman??? Get in my hands now. This book is something completely unexpected. I started out […]

ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Book Reviews | April 15, 2015

I’ve been super excited about this mini-genie trend that’s popped up in YA the last couple of years, having loved The Art of Wishing and liked Exquisite Captive, but I suppose it was only fitting that at some point I’d come across one that I really didn’t care for. Becoming Jinn is – unfortunately – a boring flat […]

ARC Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Book Reviews | March 23, 2015

As a huge fan of Kerstin Gier’s Precious Stone Trilogy, when I heard that Macmillan would be releasing the Silver trilogy as well, my heart LEAPED in delight. Dream a Little Dream was a super fun adventure that I just tore through. What appealed to me most about this book is the cool, creative concept of lucid shared […]

ARC Book Review: The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney

Book Reviews | October 15, 2014

Oh boy. When I heard that The Fire Artist would be at BEA, I wasn’t entirely sure I should pick it up. I hadn’t heard the best things about Daisy Whitney, but I have this thing with elemental magic that I find very hard to turn down. So when I coincidentally ended up at the Bloomsbury booth during […]

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: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Reviews | September 25, 2012

*sigh* – that’s the only appropriate way to start this review. Now I gave City of Bones 3.5 oranges, and was even sort of debating giving it an extra orange, and now I’m thinking that even 3.5 was too many. I’ve reached a few conclusions about why that is: first off, I’ve definitely reached my YA bullshit quota […]
