Read of the Town | An Author’s Odyssey

Every year, pretty consistently, Chris Colfer has released a new book in his very popular series, The Land of Stories. It’s mostly popular among the crowd that is (admittedly) half my age, but I don’t care, I love it and think, as twists on fairytales go, it’s pretty freaking great. I find most fairytale twists, …

The Collaborators: 8th Edition

I cannot believe the last time I collaborated with Alaina of That’s What She Read was back in February 2015!? Nearly 1.5 years ago! That’s crazy! Then again I could be blamed because I have been very lax with my reading. I’m lucky if I can finish a book in two weeks, or even finish …

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan | Book Review

Rating: ★★★ Review: Any book that has the word “book” somewhere in the title will always catch my attention and at least make me read the back to get more info about it before deciding if it’s worth a read and ultimately a purchase. I obviously thought it was because I bought it, and although …

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart (Book Review)

Rating: ★★★★★ Review: I have to admit I wasn’t expecting much when I picked this book up. I just wanted something that I knew I could finish so I could get myself back into the habit of reading one book a week, something I hadn’t done many times this year so far. The title caught …

The Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★★ Review: There will be no spoilers here so read on as I attempt to review this third book by Ransom Riggs without divulging anything pertinent. I’d first like to start by expressing some sadness and disbelief because the rumors that the Peculiar Children books are a Trilogy as opposed to a series appear …
