Blog Tour Review – Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott

Blog Tour Review – Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott

I wasn’t expecting this book. And by that, I mean I think I went in with more expectations for action, adventure, the standard fantasy elements that I always look for but this book just isn’t that. I loved that this felt like a mysterious treasure hunt and combined with the beautiful writing that reminded me a bit of The Court of Broken Knives, both books featuring a very […]

Blog Tour Review + #Giveaway – Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor

Blog Tour Review + #Giveaway – Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reading Akata Witch, the first of this series and hailed as the “Nigerian Harry Potter.” While I definitely saw the similarities, the book stood on its own and continues to expand this beautifully rich world in Akata Warrior. Much like the first book, I found myself falling into Okorafor’s world more so than her characters. It’s been a year […]

Review – Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster

Review – Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster

I. . . wasn’t prepared for this book. You know, maybe I should have read the synopsis a bit more closely because I thought I was going to be reading a sweeping YA fantasy and that wasn’t really the case. And that’s not a bad thing, to be honest, because this book has altered my view of dystopians a bit for the better. Let’s start […]

Review – A Season of You by Emma Douglas

Review – A Season of You by Emma Douglas

I took a trip back to Cloud Bay in the second installment of the series, A Season of You, and I’m not sure I’m completely impressed. After reading Need You Now in August, I decided that this was a series that I definitely wanted to check out (despite having issues with that first book). And in the same fashion, while I had some problems with this one, I […]

Mini Review – Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Mini Review – Geekerella by Ashley Poston

I reeaally wanted to love this one. While I enjoyed Geekerella, I didn’t love it as much as I expected to. I think it may have been too predictable. Though I expected that going in, so I really don’t know what happened. I think I had too high of expectations for this to be spectacular, but it was pretty much like every other contemporary I’ve […]

Review – 27 Hours by Tristina Wright

Review – 27 Hours by Tristina Wright

I struggled to write this review, probably more than I have in a while for a book. Part of this is because I’ve seen backlash on lower rated reviews for 27 Hours and there are SO MANY higher ratings that I thought that I was crazy for not enjoying this one as much as other readers have. And before I say anything more I want to add […]

Review – The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman

Review – The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman

What do you do when you believe everything you’re told? It’s crazy, hearing that. Sounds like fiction. Which, in this case, it is though I know a few people out there that fit the description too… In Lauren’s case, it’s extreme and the surgery she has makes her truly see the truth. It’s not pretty. I wasn’t really sure about The Innocence Treatment. I know my […]
