Review: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach

Review: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach

On the off-chance anyone hasn’t gotten the memo yet: A-L-I-E-N-S<——I love ’em. This is partially b/c when my grandmother (who I stayed with instead of going to daycare) wasn’t reading me fairy tales, I was watching PBS specials on the ocean or OUTER SPACE. Which is why when I was in first grade and got asked […]

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

As soon as I read a fellow bloggers review of this on Amazon, I was sold on reading it. She said she couldn’t put it down. Well I couldn’t either. I started it one afternoon and finished it at 6 a.m. the next day after not sleeping. It’s YA but that didn’t even matter, I […]

Review: The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian

Review: The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian

Here’s my rule about spoilers: If it’s in the blurb, or if it’s in the first 5(ish)% of the book (and therefore available for download BEFORE you purchase the book), it’s not a spoiler. And that’s my disclaimer. Meet Evalyn Ibarra. As The Wicked We Have Done begins, Evalyn is saying goodbye to her mother […]

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: 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: 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 […]

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been very up front about my love of fairy tales, and Rapunzel is one of the only Grimms’ Fairy Tales that has a somewhat happy ending (even if it is a little bit risqué). In the original version, the prince finds Rapunzel after hearing her sing. He comes back day after day to listen to her, […]

Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising by Pierce Brown might be the best book in the history of ever. When I first heard about this book, I was accosted with comparisons to The Hunger Games. 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 […]
