Book Review: One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva

Book Review: One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva

Book Reviews | September 28, 2014

After hearing Michael Barakiva speak at the Teen Author Carnival, I was immediately sold. I needed One Man Guy in my life – and my instincts were 100% correct, because this book was laugh-out-loud funny and adorable and just left me with the biggest smile on my face. The great thing about meeting Michael Barakiva in person, and […]

ARC Book Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

ARC Book Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Book Reviews | September 22, 2014

This book is so meta and so cool. And for its 600 pages, it read immensely smoothly and quickly. There’s no book quite like this one, and I definitely enjoyed it. It’s my first but definitely not my last adventure with Scott Westerfeld. Now, Afterworlds is essentially two books in one. On the one hand, we have a […]

ARC Book Review: Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley

Book Reviews | September 17, 2014

Lies We Tell Ourselves is easily one of the most buzzed about books of 2014 and for good reason. This book is so incredibly important. It’s a book about an icky time in our history, but it’s still so relevant to societal issues going on today. It’s a well-written, well-researched debut that should be on everyone’s list. Lies […]

ARC Book Review: Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler

Book Reviews | July 25, 2014

First off, I need to be upfront with you guys and say that I’ve met Dahlia, and we’ve talked quite a bit, and she personally gave me a review copy of her book at BEA. Sooo, that might affect my opinion in some small way, but as always, I’m striving to be as honest as possible in my […]

ARC Book Review: Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis

ARC Book Review: Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis

Book Reviews | May 30, 2014

When I heard about Otherbound, it instantly went on my must-read list. I mean, it’s a diverse as all hell standalone fantasy book by a Dutch author. Uhhh, yeah, I was all kinds of down for this. Getting the review request made my day. And the book itself? Definitely enjoyable. I suppose where this book is strongest is […]

Book Review: Eon by Alison Goodman

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 […]
