ARC Book Review: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

ARC Book Review: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

Book Reviews | August 20, 2015

Last year I read and fell in love with Libba Bray’s writing in The Diviners, so even though its sequel counts a daunting 624 pages, I dove right in and got swept up in it all again. Lair of Dreams cements The Diviners as one of my favorite ongoing series. (We won’t speak about the cover catastrophe going […]

ARC Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

ARC Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Book Reviews | June 3, 2015

As a true reader of my generation, I’m still tempted any time witches and witchcraft are mentioned. The Witch Hunter popped up on my radar with quite a bit of buzz, but at the end of the day, this is a debut that failed to impress. The Witch Hunter is a kind of historical fantasy. I say kind […]

ARC Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Book Reviews | December 29, 2014

I don’t typically read a lot of paranormal books, so I had never yet experienced Holly Black – a pretty big name author in YA.

And I knew that, like most of these stories, it probably wouldn’t end well. This really is guilty pleasure territory (though I somewhat hate […]

ARC Book Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

ARC Book Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Book Reviews | September 12, 2014

As with any negative review, particularly of a debut author, this is somewhat painful to write. I picked up Salt & Storm hoping for interesting magic adventures with stunning world building and the possibility of a nice romance. And I’m left extremely disappointed on all counts. So much so that at a mere quarter of the book, I […]

Book Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray

Book Reviews | August 29, 2014

The Diviners is one of those books that has been on my TBR list and my bookshelf for AGES, but I just never got around to. And, I mean, really, who can blame me – it’s almost 600 freaking pages. So this is when book club comes in to save the day! Book Club: The Way to Get […]
