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 […]

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliott

Book Reviews | October 29, 2015

I love art, historical fiction, and Renaissance Italy – so how could I possibly resist Da Vinci’s Tiger? With a premise that evoked loving memories of Sharon Biggs Waller’s A Mad, Wicked Folly – arguably my favorite historical fiction title to date – this book shot up to the top of my to read list. And I am […]

ARC Book Review: Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown

ARC Book Review: Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown

Book Reviews | October 20, 2015

Historical fiction is the genre that I’ve been trying to delve into much more this year. This paired with a fondness for (at least the idea of) spy thrillers, as soon as I heard about Velvet Undercover, I was excited. A teenage spy sent into Germany from the UK during World War I? Color me intrigued. This book […]

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 […]

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | August 22, 2015

Oh how I wish I had loved this more. Rae Carson and I have had a kind of rocky relationship till now. Though I wouldn’t say I really disliked the Fire and Thorns series, I was never really impressed, and the hype completely baffled me. Despite that, I decided to give Walk on Earth a Stranger a shot, […]
