Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Reviews | April 7, 2016

When Ink and Bone first came out, it got some rave reviews that made me place it on my wishlist and file away under “definitely should check out at some point”. That point arrived in the form of a book club nomination. I went into the book not knowing much about it aside from (a) the good reviews, […]

ARC Book Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

ARC Book Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Book Reviews | February 11, 2016

Time travel. Those are magic words to me. Words to which I perk up and think, “OH YES PLEASE.” Throw in some pirate-y shenanigans and how on earth was I supposed to resist this book? Well, maybe I’ll take more care in the future. The Girl from Everywhere wasn’t exactly what I was hoping it would be. The […]

Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Book Reviews | February 3, 2016

Ever since I first read Cinder, almost three years ago, I knew that this series would likely be one of my all-time favorites. Now here we are. The end of the road. And I was not wrong. At a whopping 824 pages, your first thought upon opening Winter may rightfully be, “Holy crap this book is massive.” That […]

Book Review: Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Book Reviews | July 10, 2015

For as long as I can remember, a book with an “evil” main character, or anti-hero, has been on the very top of my reading wishlist. (We’ll ignore the glaringly idiotic fact that I had this book on my shelf for more than a year and a half and didn’t read it.) Vicious burst into the world with […]

Book Reviews | July 2, 2015

The adventure continues! Followers of my blog will know I’ve been knee deep in the William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series for well over a year now. As a true Star Wars fan and lover of words, I cannot resist. William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh brings another fun, funny, and insightful installment to the series, accompanied by the […]

ARC Book Review: Illusionarium by Heather Dixon

ARC Book Review: Illusionarium by Heather Dixon

Book Reviews | May 18, 2015

Having heard amazing things about Dixon’s debut, Entwined, that I have had on my shelf for years but shamefully not read yet, when the option to review Illusionarium came up, I jumped on that instantly. I’m generally a sucker for all things labeled steampunk anyway. But. Well, I think I may have learned my lesson not to jump […]

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by..

Book Reviews | April 13, 2015

I embarked on this quirky little series when I thought it would only be the original Star Wars series, so I was a bit surprised to hear about William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace. You would think that after three books, the novelty of the Shakespearification of Star Wars might wear off – but no! I enjoyed The […]

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Reviews | February 27, 2015

It’s probably worth noting that I very rarely read novellas or prequels unless I am heavily invested in the series. Now, Fairest was at the top of my wishlist anyway because The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all time favorite series. This prequel novella gives me a new appreciation for Meyer’s craftsmanship in terms of her story […]
