Review – The Porcelain Child by Jessica Dall

After reading The Copper Witch (book 1 of the Broken Line series), I was curious where Adela would go next. Instead, I found that The Porcelain Child (book 2) is the story of Adela’s daughter, Mary. While a tad disappointed with the change, I decided to go in with an open mind, expecting similar aspects from book one in the […]

Review – Cress by Marissa Meyer

As if Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles couldn’t get any better. Cress soared past Cinder and Scarlet, offering a new character and tons more awesomeness.

At the same […]

Review – Crewel by Gennifer Albin

I’m not sure what I really expected from this book. It was an impulse read: I saw it on the shelf in the library, thought it sounded interesting, and decided to check it out. I’ve been hesitant about my choices of YA dystopian reads, having slowly lost my faith in the genre over the last year or so. While Crewel […]

Review – The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

Though the novellas are offered separately, I read them in the binding of The Assassin’s Blade which I recommend as they are quite short and flow into each other really well. As a whole, I enjoyed getting a better glimpse into the young woman and assassin that is Celaena Sardothien. Obviously these novellas don’t hold nearly the detail that the novels […]

Review – The Copper Witch by Jessica Dall

My, my, my, Miss Adela Tilden certainly knows how to get herself noticed. From the granddaughter of a baroness to the king’s court, this little spitfire works her way to the top and all while under twenty. That’s definitely ambition if I ever saw it. Dall threw Adela into a world of politics and intrigue and set her loose on […]
