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, …

Read of the Town | End of Watch

First there was Mr. Mercedes with its creepy cover of blood rain falling on an open umbrella and the mysterious sticker of a smiley face on the handle. Then Finders Keepers, with the same rain of blood, only this time on an open book (perhaps a journal). Now the Bill Hodges Trilogy comes to a …

Read of the Town: X by Sue Grafton

Are you familiar at all with the Alphabet Series written by Sue Grafton? I’m familiar with them because one year (over a decade ago) for Christmas my grandmother presented me with books A through P! I’m a book lover mostly because of my mom, but my grandmother had a hand in my love of reading …

Read of the Town: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

I just L-O-V-E the Ransom Riggs Peculiar Children books! The 3rd in a series, which I believe will end with the 4th book some time next year, has an amazing cover. Ransom has already said this is his most favorite cover and I’d have to agree! My guess as to why would be because the …

Read of the Town: The Girl on the Train

I think this book will easily be (if it isn’t already) the “must-read” book to kick off the 2015 year. It’s a bit too early to call it the must read book of the entire year, but you never know? I saw this book come up on just about every TBR list for 2015 of …

Read of the Town: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I’m a bit late about this book and it seems EVERYONE (at least in the growing YA world) is talking about it. I’ve actually found it very difficult to avoid reviews already written about this book by those in the blogging world who’ve received ARC’s and read it through in a matter of days! Don’t …

Read of the Town: Madman’s Daughter Trilogy by Megan Shephard

Of all the series I’m reading at the moment this one is EASILY in my top 3. Between you and me it’s second on my list. And as sad as I am that the last book is coming at the end of January, I’m even more excited to know her next Trilogy will be coming …

Read of the Town: Revival by Stephen King

Let me tell you, no one terrifies me more than a Stephen King novel. He terrifies me in literature the way Alfred Hitchcock does on the big screen. They just “get” how to infiltrate the reader (or viewers) mind so easily that before you know it, you’re scared out of your mind and can’t seem …
