Book Review: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

Book Review: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

Book Reviews | June 22, 2015

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street came pitched to me as “for fans of Samantha Shannon” and came with a blurb by Shannon herself. That definitely caught my attention, but when I heard about what the rest of the book would contain (clairvoyance, Victorian London, Japan, and a heavy focus on characterization), I knew I had to check this […]

ARC Book Review: Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler

ARC Book Review: Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler

Book Reviews | June 17, 2015

Let it be noted, for the record, that I love Dahlia – who is just a super awesome author person and super fun to talk to. But be that as it may, I wasn’t expecting to fall quite so deeply in love with Under the Lights. This is a wonderfully different and excellently fluffy LGBT book that just […]

ARC Book Review: Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

ARC Book Review: Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

Book Reviews | May 15, 2015

When I first heard about Made You Up, I was instantly excited about it. I’m usually all about the light and fluffy contemporaries, but a main character with schizophrenia? A completely unreliable narrator, unsure of what is real and what is not? That was a premise that was way too interesting to pass up. And I’m glad I […]

ARC Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

But it could also be pretentious, sappy, and/or completely boring. Sadly… it went for the boring route, and I just give zero […]

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: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

ARC Book Review: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czuka..

Book Reviews | November 21, 2014

Earlier this year, I absolutely fell in love with Liz Czukas’s debut, Ask Again Later, so when I got the opportunity to read Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless, I was a bouncing bundle of joy. Though less bantery and wonderfully shippy than Ask Again Later, Top Ten Clues was feel good, happy making, and totally reminiscent of epic […]
