DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This was my first Rainbow Rowell book! And I have to say I do see the appeal. This book was pretty adorable! It’s pure fluff, which isn’t something I would typically pick up, but I did enjoy it. It won’t make it to my favorites, and isn’t something that will necessarily stick with me, but it was a cute and fun read. The idea is kind of creepy, but somehow it worked. It was the book version of one of […]

Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Whuh. Where do I even start? Um. I have mixed feelings about the conclusion to the Raven Cycle. I loved it, but it left me wanting. Yet it was wonderful either way. “I like you an awful lot, Blue Sargent.” MORE BLUE AND GANSEY FEELS. Gahhh, I’m so glad they finally are out in the open! Happy ship, happy happy ship. *makes heart eyes* I loved every single Blue/Gansey moment so much I thought my heart would explode. MORE BLUE […]

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bone will rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown While I still really enjoyed this book, it didn’t quite have the magic that The Girl at Midnight had. I gave the first book my esteemed Hail to the King Award, and it was one of my favorite books of YEAR. I suppose it’s kind of hard to top that, eh? The characters felt very real, and […]

Review: Titans by Victoria Scott

Review: Titans by Victoria Scott

When I first saw the synopsis of this book, my first thought was: Horses? Mechanical horses?! YES PLEASE. It sounded awesome. I was sure it would be awesome. I was not wrong! I love Astrid and Magnolia’s relationship! I love seeing girl friendships that are pure and not catty. I feel like it’s so rare in YA anymore. Astrid and Magnolia supported each other and took care of each other. They were always there for one another, no matter what. It […]

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

STUFF HAPPENS, MAN. It’s finally happening! And it’s getting intense! I’m beyond excited to see where the search for Glendower goes. I feel the conclusion drawing nearer and I feel excited and anxious all at the same time. I want them to find Glendower. I don’t want it to end. I JUST WANT GANSEY TO LIVE. I love this series so much. Maggie’s writing is so beautiful, there’s so many feels and quotable passages! It’s also got plenty of humor […]
