Review: Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

Review: Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

I’m just gonna say upfront—Ilona Andrews is my absolute F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E. I always get uncomfortable when writing about her/them because as some of you (MOST of you?) fellow Ilona fans already know, “Ilona Andrews” is a husband/wife writing team. So if I’m talking about her<—–see there it is right there, I either look like a noob […]

Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I had serious misgivings about reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I started reading Brightly Woven (Bracken’s YA Fantasy stand-alone) a few years ago, and I just wasn’t feeling it. I didn’t mark it as DNF b/c I wasn’t totally writing it off. I was just putting it aside for later. WAY later. So […]

By bloggers, by publicists, by other authors . . . Everyone has read The Hunger Games, and everyone LOVED The Hunger Games (myself included), […]

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Let’s talk about fairy tales. I was fortunate enough to stay with my grandmother, rather than going to daycare, when I was a little girl, and I was even more fortunate that my grandmother loved to read. She read to me constantly, and what did she read? Fairy tales. Anytime there was an occasion to […]

Review: Ironskin by Tina Connolly

Review: Ironskin by Tina Connolly

Ironskin sports two spiffy but slightly misleading “like this, like that” quotes which I will save you the trouble right now of being lead astray by. Certainly Beauty and the Beast and Jane Eyre (although I haven’t read the latter) receive their sacrificial knick-knacks: a protagonist with a B&Besque curse (not hairy but Eyry?) and, […]
