ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

Book Reviews | August 13, 2015

When I read Hook’s Revenge last year, I had practically no expectations and got one of my favorite books of 2014. So to say that I was excited for the sequel would be a bit of an understatement. The Pirate Code is a brilliant follow-up to Hook’s Revenge, cementing this as one of my favorite middle grade series […]

ARC Book Review: Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz

Book Reviews | September 5, 2014

I don’t even think I can recall the last time that I’ve been so utterly freaking delighted about a book – that I loved every minute of it and happily put it on my “everything-i-wanted” shelf on Goodreads. Hook’s Revenge, Heidi Schulz’s amazing middle grade debut, completely swept me off my feet. I’m head over heels for a […]

Book Reviews | January 9, 2014

I’ve loved the movie version of Howl’s Moving Castle since I first saw it years ago, so I was really happy when Daph suggested this as a book club pick. It’s one of those books that I was meaning to read sometime, but I needed to be reminded and given that extra push, since it is a pretty […]

When I saw this listed on the Book Depository, I just knew I had to buy it. It had to happen. I love the Percy Jackson series so much, so I honestly didn’t care that it would be the exact same story. The illustrations would make it a whole new and wonderful experience. In a way, I was correct, […]

Book Review: The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | May 30, 2012

Okay, this book was PERFECT. JUST PERFECT. That is the single best word to describe it. In each book one of my absolute favorite elements has been the introduction of the gods. In this book I must say it was Hestia. Goddess of the hearth – you always forget about her, but to me it strikes a chord, […]

Book Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | May 29, 2012

Wow, the books in this series just get better and better don’t they? I enjoyed this one even more than The Titan’s Curse, which I honestly wasn’t expecting. There was so much story development, but I mean, there has to be when the two sides finally start fighting. I think the actual battle of the labyrinth was my […]

Book Reviews | May 28, 2012

I think I’m really hooked on this series now, considering the fact that I read this book within a day. Well admittedly I’d want to read them all like this, but there’s exams in two weeks. This is so not good for me. This book was another great installment. Riordan has really picked up a winning formula here. […]

Book Reviews | May 27, 2012

Wow. I am still loving this series. It’s getting even harder to not read, and focus on studying. As for the characters, I am loving Luke. I know, how could I? Really. But it’s so interesting – it’s like me loving Draco in Harry Potter, forever and always. I love it when the villain has such a different […]
