Book Review: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Book Review: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Book Reviews | August 30, 2016

Once upon a time, I read a cool book with a genie in it. Ever since then, I’ve been weirdly convinced that this is something I need so much more of in my life. And so, it was no surprise that when I heard about The Forbidden Wish it instantly got put on my TBR list. And this […]

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Reviews | July 21, 2016

The Rose and the Dagger was one of my most anticipated books of 2016, being that it followed the flawless and engrossing The Wrath and the Dawn, one of my favorite books of 2015. Honestly, words will never really do it justice. This book – and this series – is wholly unique. So much so that I finished […]

Book Review: Spinning Thorns by Anna Sheehan

Book Review: Spinning Thorns by Anna Sheehan

Book Reviews | March 12, 2016

Fair is fair, although I wasn’t completely in love with Sheehan’s first book A Long, Long Sleep, I decided to give her another shot with Spinning Thorns. Though it’s ANOTHER Sleeping Beauty retelling, that’s one of my favorite fairy tales. And with this cute of a cover, I could hardly resist. But in this case… I wish I […]

It’s so thoughtful and unique – and though there wasn’t a lot of action, I was completely swept up in the main character and her voice. […]

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: 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: 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 […]
