Review – Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones

After having mixed feelings about Wintersong, I was both excited and hesitant to read Shadowsong. I think I was hoping for the sequel to my dream version of the movie Labyrinth (where Sarah isn’t so young and shipping her with the Goblin King didn’t feel creepy). And I got my romance, but I’m really conflicted about this book. Last time around, I […]

Review – The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

This was a book that I wanted to love. For its unique world. For its take on beauty and the idea of perception, both our own and others’ view. But. . . but. . . it just had some issues that didn’t sell The Belles for me. First, the story. Good, but not great. My biggest issue is with the slow pace […]

Review – Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

If Reign the Earth is any indication of what’s to come this year in YA fantasy, then everyone needs to start saving up because we’re going to all be broke real soon. I started this book, made it 100 pages in and was forced to stop because I had to get some work done. . . well, I should have stopped but the […]

Mini Review – Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen

I was sitting at work at the library and someone had returned Adulthood Is a Myth so it was staring me down from the cart in the back area. I picked it up, read through the first comic, and KNEW I had to read the rest.  I’m not sure […]

Review – When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

Although 5th in the Cottonbloom series, When the Stars Come Out follows the sub-arc about the Abbot brothers, picking up after Leave the Night On. I wouldn’t say you need to read the first 3 books in the series to pick this one up but may want to pick up the fourth as it features one of the brothers, Wyatt, and his relationship […]

Review – The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

So. The Hazel Wood. This is a book that, if I passed it in the bookstore I’d immediately pick it up for that cover alone. And then I’d read the synopsis and be hooked. Then I’d read the book and be horribly disappointed.  I’m not sure what ruined the book for me — my own expectations or the hype (which just […]
