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 …

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 …

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 …

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! …

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 …
