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 …

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 …

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 …

“Each Sunday afternoon at Saint Etheldreda’s School for Young Ladies on Prickwillow Road in Ely, Cambridgeshire, the seven enrolled young ladies were invited by custom to join Headmistress Constance Plackett while she entertained her younger brother, Mr. Aldous Godding, at the dinner table.” Review: I want to start out by saying I loved this book …

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige (Book Review)

“I first discovered I was trash three days before my ninth birthday — one year after my father lost his job and moved to Secaucus to live with a woman named Crystal and four years before my mother had the car accident, started taking pills, and began exclusively wearing bedroom slippers instead of normal shoes.” …

Camp NaNoWriMo Countdown (April Edition)

For anyone who wasn’t aware, November 2013 was an amazing month, because it was the first time in my LIFE that I started and finished writing a novel! I wrote over 50,000 words in exactly 30 days and trust me when I tell you it was NOT easy! But like when I got my first …
