Nightingale’s Nest by Nikki Loftin | Book Review

Oh my goodness, I love fairy tale retellings aimed at middle graders. When I saw a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Nightingale pop up on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it, even though I am not totally entirely familiar with the origin story. Nightingale's Nest by Nikki Loftin is a story … [continue]

Shadows by Robin McKinley | Book Review


The crux of the matter is that I really, really love Robin McKinley’s books, but unfortunately Shadows turned out to be kind of a really big disappointment. I mean, it’s not like I ever expect to dislike her books. No, instead, I go in expecting a book that is not exactly going to be a fast […]

Patrick Ness paperbacks

You guys ever begin a series and then find yourself afraid to read the last book in the series because you don’t know that you heart can take it? That’s my feeling toward the Chaos Walking trilogy. I’ve read the first two, but I am so scared to read the last book. I will do […]


Allison: Just Like The Movies | Kelly Fiore | Book Review

Just Like The Movies Featured Image

Have you ever imagined what it would be like if real life was like the movies? Or at least like those romantic comedies or romantic dramas where the girl gets the boy of her dreams every time? I would be lying if I said that I had never imagined what would happen if my life […]


#scandal by Sarah Ockler | Book Review


I really wanted to love #scandal by Sarah Ockler. I mean, as a user of the internet, I like books about other users of the internet and books that make a commentary on social media. The description of #scandal made it sound like it would be a total April book. It was not. While the […]


Far From You by Tess Sharpe | Book Review


The thing about books that are murder mysteries is that I am the most oblivious person and never able to figure out who the murderer is until the main character figures it out. This holds true for every mystery thriller book ever and also holds true for Far From You by Tess Sharpe. I went into Far […]


Horde by Ann Aguirre | Book Review


Before reading this review, I suggest you read Enclave and Outpost, the first two books in the Razorland trilogy so that this review of Horde by Ann Aguirre does not spoil you, seeing as how people seem to hate spoilers. Reader friends, I want you to know that Ann Aguirre wraps up the Razorland trilogy perfectly in Horde. […]


If I Ever Get Out Of Here by Eric Gansworth | Audiobook Review


Why Did I Listen To This Book? If I Ever Get Out Of Here by Eric Gansworth uses music as a huge theme and is a historical fiction young adult book. These two elements are among my favorite things to read. Originally, I had a copy of If I Ever Get Out Of Here from Netgalley, […]


A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To This Book? I was so impressed with The School For Good And Evil by Soman Chainani, that I was kind of over the moon when I heard there would be a sequel. I seriously could not wait to listen to World Without Princes. I had such a pleasant experience listening to the […]


Thorn Jack by Katherine Harbour | Book Review

Thorn Jack by Katherine Harbour paints an evocative picture of Upstate New York. It is a competent retelling of the Scottish ballad ‘Tam Lin’, modernized for our time. The official summary compares Harbour’s book to Cassandra Clare, Erin Morgenstern and Melissa Marr, personally I think that the most accurate comparison is to Marr. Thorn Jack is a […]
