The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 Review: This book took me longer than I would have liked, to finish. And while normally if I find I’m going to take more than one week to get through a book that isn’t that many pages, I’d simply stop reading it and put it on my short DNF list, I chose …

Journey Through a Trilogy Pt. 1

A little over two years ago (maybe more now that I think about it, my concept of time lately hasn’t been all that great) there was a great snow storm. Of course, I’ve seen worse, and I’m sure generations that came before me have seen even worse than my worse. Nonetheless, it was during this …

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★ Review: I discovered Christopher Moore several years ago when I read Lamb and laughed till I was in tears! Ever since then I quickly became a fan of his writing and when the Harry Potter series came to an end I turned to his humor as a way to get back into reading …

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline | Book Review

Rating: ★★★★ Review: As other-worldly, dystopian, fantasy novels go, this is one I wouldn’t mind living in. Except for the concept of the stacked trailers! I’m afraid of heights and I would like to hope I’d be in an income bracket that would prevent me from living in one of those. Reading this book took …

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine (Book Review)

Rating: ★★★★★ Review: I know it’s only August, but if I had to pick a book I’ve read so far this year that I would say was my favorite, this would be the one without question! Just on a few aesthetics first and then I’ll get into the substance of the book. The length is …

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman (Book Review)

Rating: ★★★★★ Review: This is only the second Dragon book I’ve ever read. The first I never actually finished (having only read about half-way through it) was Eragon by Christopher Paolini. My reasoning for not finishing the book had nothing to do with the writing style, but more to do with the weight of the book! …

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. …
