Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Book Reviews | July 23, 2016

The hype for Nimona started long before it was published as a book. Several of my friends were already raving about it as it was gradually being posted online. That plus Noelle’s STUNNING drawing style made this a graphic novel I definitely could not resist. And I can say with certainty that I feel it deserves the hype. […]

ARC Book Review: Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas

ARC Book Review: Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas

Book Reviews | February 28, 2016

If we haven’t spoken in a year, you may not have noticed the intense love I’ve been consistently proclaiming for A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas. But boy. I love that book. 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. […]

Book Review: A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

Book Review: A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

Book Reviews | October 5, 2014

It took me a month of scheduled reading to manage fitting A Clash of Kings in with the rest of my towering stacks of books to be read, but I did it. Now, this won’t be my most coherent review ever, because how on earth do you review a book of over 700 pages, but more just my […]

ARC Book Review: Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson

ARC Book Review: Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson

Book Reviews | September 15, 2014

M.A. Larson’s debut novel, Pennyroyal Academy, is a charming middle grade story (with some crossover appeal to young adult readers) that is sure to delight readers with its fairy tale lore, magic, and mystery. At the end of the day, this short little story just left me wanting… a bit more. I will say that I was instantly […]

ARC Book Review: The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas

Book Reviews | September 3, 2014

The Perilous Sea, or as I like to call it “THE SEA DRAGON COVER I HAS A SEA DRAGON FWEEEEEEEEEEE”, was – as you might already be able to tell – one of my very highly anticipated books of 2014. It’s the sequel to The Burning Sky, which I absolutely loved in spite of its flaws. Though The […]

Book Review: Eona by Alison Goodman

Book Review: Eona by Alison Goodman

Book Reviews | August 22, 2014

After reading Eon for book club and unanimously loving it, we decided to read Eona as well, so hopefully we could gush more and more about this amazing high fantasy duology. Now, while 3.5 oranges is not a BAD rating and Eona is not a BAD book, this was disappointing to me in several ways… unfortunately. It did […]

Book Review: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Book Reviews | May 26, 2014

I think like everyone else, I was seriously daunted by the size of A Game Of Thrones, in spite of how much I wanted to read it. So yeah, for some I “did it in the wrong order” – I watched the TV series before I read the book. But you know what? I don’t care. I love […]

Book Review: Eon by Alison Goodman

Book Review: Eon by Alison Goodman

Book Reviews | May 23, 2014

Eon is a Chinese mythology-inspired fantasy story involving dragons and genderbending, so obviously when I heard about it, it went on my GAH-MUST-HAVE-THIS-NOW list. Due to its length, I needed some extra persuasion to actually read it, but that’s when I can always count on book club. I breezed through and absolutely adored this story. Right off the […]
