ARC Book Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

ARC Book Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Book Reviews | February 6, 2016

I’m a glutton for three things: fairy tale retellings, beautiful covers, and high fantasies that come with maps. So, obviously, I couldn’t help myself when it came to The Shadow Queen – also since this is an author who gets quite a bit of hype but I had yet to read. There were parts of this book that […]

Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book Reviews | December 10, 2015

Whoa, whoa, whoa, WHOA! I’ve been a fan of Leigh Bardugo’s since reading her Grisha series, but man, she knocked it out of the park with Six of Crows. This is an instant favorite, and one of the very best books I’ve read this year. Intense, creative, well-written, and well-developed… if you haven’t read this, I’m basically ordering […]

Book Review: Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Book Reviews | November 21, 2015

Having read and very much enjoyed Haddix’s Shadow Children series when I was younger, when Just Ella was selected as our next book club pick, I was all for it!

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: The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas

Book Reviews | September 24, 2015

Ever since I first cracked open The Burning Sky, I’ve been completely infatuated with The Elemental Trilogy. Sherry Thomas created such awesome characters and such an amazing ship, that I got swept up in their adventures instantly and any complaints I had were largely ignored. So, my expectations might have been a bit high for The Immortal Heights, […]
