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 […]

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 […]

Out of the entire series, I think that this book is the best one! I was very pleased with a few little twists that were added, and it made it overall more enjoyable. And I don’t want to say why without using spoiler tags because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone! The first half was kind of slow, honestly. It didn’t pick up until the appearance of what I mentioned in the spoiler tag. The first half would […]

Meh. That’s the best word I can describe this book with, and it’s mostly all I have to say about it. But I can’t write a one word review, can I? First of all, this book was weird. And confusing. There were a lot of WTF moments, and sometimes it didn’t make any sense at all. There were a lot of terms that weren’t explained, either: downhollow, fiend (which I eventually figured out was basically a demon), crooked (I finally […]
