I am getting so addicted to this series! I love the magic of it, and Rowling has a way of pulling you in. This series will get under your skin! I think so far this has been my least favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed it. I have to admit I was a bit bored in the beginning at the Quidditch World Cup. It felt like it droned on and on, and I think some of that could […]

I am very surprised by how addicted to this series I’ve become! I’ve been trying to watch each movie after I read the book, but the anxiety caused by the differences in this one tell me I should probably stop doing that, ha. I’ve reached the point now where I’m starting to see drastic differences between the book and the movie, unlike the first two. I was really upset that the significance behind Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs wasn’t explained! […]

I think this is probably my favorite of the series. I just love the underlying mystery, and the secrecy of the Chamber! This story is exciting from start to finish! Just like the first one, I don’t feel like I gained very much from reading the book after already seeing the movie because it’s so similar. But I still thoroughly enjoyed it! I did notice a few minute differences – like, they left Peeves completely out! And the creepy weird […]

ABOUT TIME, RIGHT?! *coughs* Yeah, it took me long enough, I know. Honestly though, I’d seen all of the movies, so I knew the gist of it (yes, I know, books always have more detail than the movies), so I had no desire to read them. I’ve been meaning to forever, I just…couldn’t bring myself to. Until finally, I drew it from my TBR jar! I’m going to be honest, I had actually tried reading this a couple years ago – […]

A huge thank you to Tor Teen for sending me a copy for review! This book was so full of cute! It was a very fluffy read (which I need from time to time), adorable and fun in the vein of Rachel Hawkins. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! I love the world of witchery in this book – they have a ‘WitchNet’ and a ‘Witchipedia.’ Cute, right?! Also a dragon! And a werewolf pup! I […]

Mini Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Mini Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

I was really impressed with Virginia Boecker’s prose. It was engaging, so even when there was a lull in the plot or action, I was still interested in the story! I freaking loved George! He cracked me up! I was really hoping in the beginning that he was going to be the love interest. (*sighs wistfully*) I also really liked Fifer! She was feisty, and even though she came off as a hard ass (or worse), she totally won me […]
