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: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

ARC Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Book Reviews | February 11, 2015

Red Queen is probably one of the most hyped up 2015 releases. To be honest, promise me magic and courtly politics, offer me that kind of beautiful cover, and I’m all in. I definitely enjoyed Red Queen and think it’s a promising start to an awesome series, but some parts of it fell a little bit flat. I […]

Audiobook Review: Chasing Before by Lenore Appelhans

Audiobook Review: Chasing Before by Lenore Appelhans

Book Reviews | November 24, 2014

I start this review with pain in my heart because I wanted to like Chasing Before so badly. I really enjoyed The Memory of After in spite of a few quibbles, and I’ve met Lenore on multiple occasions. She’s awesome! So awesome that she’s the one who gave me this audiobook! And sadly, I didn’t really like it. […]

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

Book Reviews | November 12, 2014

When I heard about The Walled City at the BEA Buzz Panel, I was immediately intrigued. It’s based on an actual city, Kowloon Walled City, in which many of the horrid dystopian-like elements of the book did happen. It sounded action-packed and realistic yet disturbing. Ultimately, though I found the story entertaining, I felt it was bogged down […]

Book Review: The Memory of After by Lenore Appelhans

Book Reviews | October 30, 2014

I’ve been meaning to read The Memory of After (previously known as Level 2) for AGES, but it’s one of those books I just never got around to. After meeting and hanging out with Lenore in New York during BEA, I finally decided to really put it on the priority list, and I’m so glad I did! This […]

ARC Book Review: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

ARC Book Review: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

Book Reviews | October 2, 2014

I’ll admit that I started Stitching Snow with some trepidation – most of my friends that had read it had given it 3 stars max. But lo and behold, in a strange twist of fate, I’m a positive black sheep, because I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK. It was creative, fun, sci-fi-tastic, and a well-executed stand alone debut novel. […]

Audiobook Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Audiobook Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Book Reviews | September 10, 2014

Deep breaths, Debby. Just.. deep breaths. Before I launch into what is sure to be a rant about all the different ways I dislike this train wreck of a book and series and how undeserving I believe it is of the hype it gets, let me be upfront with you guys. I did not have high expectations for […]

ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Book Reviews | August 25, 2014

The Jewel was one of those typical cases for me where I can scream, “THE COVER MADE ME DO IT!” Seriously, much shiny, very want. But I knew before I got into this that it most likely would not end up going very well for me – for one thing, the book is blurbed in comparison to The […]
