The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms by Chris Colfer (Book Review)

Rating: ★★★★ Review: This is the fourth book by Chris Colfer, but it is not by far my favorite. In fact, it’s probably my least favorite of the four thus far. But let me start by listing what I liked about the book before I go over the few minor things I could have done without. …

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee (Book Review)

Review: This review, having taken me several weeks to put it together, will be a short one. There has been many opinions floating around about whether it is ethical to have published this work that had gone unseen by the public for so long, especially knowing the age and alleged mental state of Harper Lee …

The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★ Review: What can I say about a story that was started, created and cultivated, even before I was born? I tripped over the author in probably a strange way; when he died. Turns out, in the fantasy world at least, Terry Pratchett is a pretty big deal. Which is probably why I never …

Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★ Review: Let me start out by saying I don’t normally read Stephen King novels, but I won’t dispute his amazing story telling ability! I don’t necessarily think of him as a horror/thriller writer. I think of him as someone who simple writes about people in such a real way that it comes off …

Review: This is the second Jane Austen book I’ve read. I hope to have all six books read by the end of this year! I read Pride & Prejudice first, which you should go check out my review of that when you get a chance! I will warn you that I did not like that …

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (Book Review)

Review: I decided to read this book because the cover caught my attention. It wasn’t until afterwards that I realized the popularity it was getting early on, and I almost wasn’t going to read it, but I was on a four hour bus ride to DC a few weeks ago and needed something to read …

Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire (Book Review)

Review: Firstly, this is the first book of 2015 that my good friend, Alaina (of That’s What She Read), and I have collaborated on this year. Admittedly she’s been doing much better than I have in the reading department lately! But I digress… Go check out how we were able to quickly choose this book …

The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde (Book Review)

Review: Thursday Next, if you can believe it, is the name of the main character of this very strange yet excellently written book! It’s a series, with Jasper Fforde having already written 7 books in the Thursday Next story, I think. This book has so many layers of crazy and strange and yet amazing I …
