Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

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 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! I mean, my history with the author aside, I very much enjoy fairy tale retellings anyway and the newly redesigned cover took my breath away. But, in the […]

ARC Book Review: Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

ARC Book Review: Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

Book Reviews | October 3, 2015

I’m a sucker for all things gender bending, so when I heard that Newt’s Emerald would be using this beloved trope in a regency historical setting with bonus magic, I was immediately excited. Not to mention, the author, Garth Nix, is somewhat of a legend – one I had yet to experience. Overall, I enjoyed this book, but […]

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, […]

ARC Book Review: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Book Reviews | September 18, 2015

Oh man. Ever since my first encounter with Patrick Ness, I’ve known I can count on him to deliver smart, original, and compassionate diverse books. But this one basically took it to a whole new level. The Rest of Us Just Live Here made me laugh, sigh, and put tears in my eyes. Whether you’re a contemporary or […]

Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Book Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Book Reviews | September 16, 2015

Uprooted is one of those books that had a pretty quiet release, but then a massive tidal wave of hype in the book blogging community. People who know me probably know that hype and I aren’t exactly friends. And I feel like the book would have benefited if I waited a year or so to read this, so […]
