You’re reading along, on the virtual edge of your seat. You’re at the so-called “resolution” of the book and BAM! You hit the “ABOUT THE AUTHOR” page… *sad trombone* […]
It is HARD to find a good mystery in the young adult genre. Recently, more of these types of stories have made their way to the young adult book shelves. […]
Call me simple but I love the young adult fantasy genre. Give me a well planned plot with tremendous world building, don’t make it more than 400 pages long because […]
I just read a super hyped-up book and it lived up to all the hype!! Who would have guessed?!?!
A middle grade book? Really, Kristin? YES!!! Why? Do you NOT see that awesome cover? It’s got Merlin and his adorable dog on it!
I think this is the very first book I’ve read that’s been translated from it’s original language. I’m not quite sure what to make of it or how to […]
I was expecting big things from Erin Summerill’s Ever the Hunted as soon as I read the synopsis and added the book to my TBR pile. Yes, there’s certainly a […]
Honestly, I think this series is amazing. I never know if the story is going turn a corner and tug on my heart strings or if we’re going to run full tilt into a near death battle.
I had been waiting for this book since December of 2015. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The cover caught my eye but it was the synopsis that nabbed me and reeled me in. And as readers, we’re surprised when a book turns out a little bit different than what we expected, whether for the good or the bad. Okay, maybe you aren’t but I am, every time it happens to me.
Color me clueless, but I had no idea the cover image was a rose engulfed in flame. Well, that kind of explains a lot…. Too bad it took me the entire story to figure it out because that really is a beautiful cover!
So there’s this Queen that can keep everyone safe from the mean, nasty natural spirits that inhabit this world. The Queen can do this by controlling these water, fire, earth, wood, and air spirits by using the power they gave her over them. Do you see anything wrong with this scenario? Oh, yeah, a lot can go wrong…
If I was asked after BEA 2016 to pick the one book I received that I was most intrigued about and excited to read, I would have answered Sarah […]
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier is one of my most favorite books to get at BEA 2016. It’s a sentimental favorite for several reasons.
Young adult urban fantasy is hard to find. GOOD young adult urban fantasy is even harder find. Forget about finding GOOD, DARK, INVENTIVE, and SMART urban fantasy in the young adult section… until Schwab’s This Savage Song.
This completely appropriate-for-the-YA-crowd story is about what happens when everything you’ve been taught to believe is complete and utter nonsense, just to get you to comply for the greater good.
Ms. Tucholke writes the most artful, gothic stories for today’s audience. Any story she puts to paper, I’ll probably read.
Well, I went and did it again. As soon as I was done reading Firstlife, I ran to Goodreads to see how many of my friends had read it and what they had thought about.
Why, oh why, doesn’t anyone write a stand alone anymore? Please, can we just wrap up the story in one book? Why do I have to enjoy a story so much only to be eventually let down at the “non-ending”? At least duologies have been invented because, yeah, those never existed before.
Mechanical horses… with feelings?? You betcha! Best friends together forever? Yup. Detroit front and center? So awesome… Do I really need to write a review? Oh, alright…
Disclaimer right off the bat: I adore Sophie Jordan’s writing. I’ve read some of her romances and I like what she does with a romance. So it was about time I got to her more fantastical reads.
Unhooked feels like the little story that could.
Sword and Verse is getting some very polarizing reviews out on Goodreads. Just quickly looking at the ratings, it appears you either loved the story or you gave it a valiant try and DNF’d it around 50%. I can actually support both viewpoints.
One of the best young adult books I’ve read since…
Do you need something to read over the holidays? Desperate for a book for the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon? If you enjoy innocent (wink) young adult romance that tickles new adult, you will love this holiday themed anthology.
