Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Book Reviews | July 7, 2016

Sigh. This is one of those series that gets raved about all the time by everyone. It’s one of the bestselling YA series of all time. And in theory there’s nothing that “wrong” with it. But I do not get everyone’s fascination. Not one bit. I enjoyed the first book quite a bit, but right from the start, […]

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by..

Book Reviews | June 23, 2016

If you haven’t heard of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, you may well be living under a rock. Aside from the movie adaptation hitting theaters later this year, this has been one of the most consistently hyped YA series for the past 5 years. And yet I’m only getting around to it now. Whoops. This book has […]

Book Review: The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May

Book Review: The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May

Book Reviews | April 9, 2016

Ever since I fell in love with The Falconer almost two years ago, I’ve been anxious to read the sequel. Yeah, it took me a while to get to it, which I’m hitting myself for, but there. I read it. And it was awesome. Arguably, The Vanishing Throne is very much a middle book. There is a fair […]

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: End of Days by Susan Ee

Book Review: End of Days by Susan Ee

Book Reviews | October 22, 2015

A couple of years ago, Angelfall by Susan Ee, an indie-published, unknown book took the reading world by storm. And now, we’re finally there: the end. End of Days was, for me, a very highly anticipated 2015 release and one I greatly enjoyed. I should say up front that I reread Angelfall and World After before diving into […]

ARC Book Review: Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell

ARC Book Review: Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell

Book Reviews | August 8, 2015

I am a huge fan of fairy tale retellings, steampunk, and beautiful book covers, so as soon as Mechanica appeared on my radar, I simply had to have it. And the results are… mixed. We had a slow start, some shining moments, and then a very wince-worthy ending. So Mechanica retells Cinderella in a way that will be […]
