Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

I love Richelle Mead. Everything that I’ve read of hers–Georgina Kincaid, Dark Swan, even Vampire Academy (though I still haven’t read the last book of that series)—I’ve, at a minimum, REALLY liked. But for some reason, I held out on reading this new series until now. The initial reviews were kind of MEH, and I’ve gotten leery […]

Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

NO SPOILERS!! I love pie. This is not a secret. I particularly love blueberry pie (which is weird b/c I HATE blueberries). My husband does too. So much that on his birthday, he’d rather have pie than cake. I’m happy to oblige, but b/c I’m a miser and a glutton (when it comes to pie), […]

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

When I was in college, I had this incredibly obnoxious French professor. The woman made us—grown men and women—sit in a circle and read (in French) basic sentences that would add up to nonsensical stories. Like we were in grade school. The first person would get a slip of paper with the equivalent of, “Jacques went […]

Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama

Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama

LOTS of dystopians flooding the YA market these days. That doesn’t particularly bother me, but as is true when a market is flooded with anything, I’ve had to become more selective in deciding which dystopians to actually read. I needed to create a method of separating the wheat from the the chaff, the silver from […]

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

A few years ago, YA Fantasy was suddenly swamped with brand new series from brand new authors. REALLY good brand new series from brand new authors. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo was the second of that batch that I read, and I hadn’t really wanted to. The cover was weirdly creepy and looked to be […]

Review: The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole

Review: The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole

So. Paranormal Romance. A lot of readers don’t see a huge difference between PNR and Urban Fantasy. I do. And for the most part, I infinitely prefer UF—more save the world, less cheerleader. Exhibit A: my sister and I were reading a well-known PNR a few years ago, our version of a buddy read (b/c […]

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

I basically had two separate lives growing up. My main life involved my nurse mother, my pharmacist (legal) father, and two of my three sisters, all living a suburban life just outside of Charlotte, NC. My secondary life involved my biological father and his entire family which was (they’ve since departed) headquartered in Bon Aqua (pronounced “ACK-qua”), TN. […]
