A Court of Silver Flames by ..

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

CW: See this book’s trigger warnings on Book Trigger Warnings. All I have to say is WOW. If you’ve read A Court of Thorns and Roses and thought Chapter 55 was steamy… wait until you see pretty much this entire book. For steam/spice, A Court of Silver Flames has nothing on Chapter 55! If you’re […]


The Toll by Neal Shusterman

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

I’m going to admit, I was a bit confused when this book first started. I didn’t realize there was a time gap because I hadn’t read the blurb. I’d figured they’d have immediately started trying to salvage Endura, but clearly not. I’m going to admit this right now, I can’t stand Goddard. He’s egotistical, he’s […]


Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

When this was chosen as the book for the Barnes & Noble YA Book Club for December, I was a bit disappointed. Up until December, all of the books had been new releases, so it didn’t make sense to me for them to choose Scythe. Then I figured maybe they’d do all three from December […]

Hocus Pocus & The All-N..

Hocus Pocus & The All-New Sequel by A. W. Jantha

I’m going to be honest, if there ever was a sequel that didn’t need to exist, this one is it. For one thing, they wrote the first half of the book based on the the movie Hocus Pocus. The movie left no questions, other than maybe did Jay and Ernie/Ice get out of those cages. […]


Aurora Rising by Jay Kristof..

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

When Aurora Rising first came out, I wasn’t planning to read it. I’ve had a lot of trouble getting into the Illuminae series and thought this might be the same way, since it is from the same authors. Boy am I glad I decided to give it a try. The characters in this book are […]


A Whole New World by Liz Bra..

A Whole New World by Liz Braswell

I’ve read some pretty unflattering reviews of this book. All I can say is, I don’t think they were reading the same book I was. I’m not even kidding. Many of the things people complained about didn’t seem to even be a part of the book. Yes, the beginning of the book gives a recap […]


Shadow Frost by Coco Ma

Shadow Frost by Coco Ma

Pianist Coco Ma has a second passion in which she is just as talented – writing. Her first novel, Shadow Frost, is an absolute wonder. The world Coco Ma has built is reminiscent of Earth, but with magic added. It seems most people have the ability to use magic, each person having at least one […]


Once Upon a Dream by Liz Bra..

Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

If you’re familiar with Sleeping Beauty, then you already know what Once Upon a Dream is going to be about. But trust me, this isn’t your Mom or Grandma’s Sleeping Beauty. Liz Braswell has woven a tale that asks what if it required more than just true love’s kiss to break the curse on Aurora? […]


As Old As Time by Liz Braswe..

As Old As Time by Liz Braswell

Who doesn’t love the tale of Beauty & The Beast? Well, except for a few people who seem to be hell-bent on dragging Disney’s version of the classic tale through the mud, claiming Belle has Stockholm Syndrom (which is actually addressed in this book). But have you ever wondered who the Enchantress was? Why she […]


The Wicked King by Holly Bla..

The Wicked King by Holly Black

Another great novel that takes place in Faerie. You can really get a feel for how things work in the land of Faerie. You get to see war, love, betrayal, and you even get twists and turns you may not anticipate. This book could not have been a more perfect sequel to The Cruel Prince. […]


The Cruel Prince by Holly Bl..

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Stories about Faerie fascinate me. The many different takes that never fail to include one common thread – Faerie is cruel, violent, & just plain a place no one should want to go. The Cruel Prince is everything Faerie is made out to be, but with one twist – mortals, humans, can play the games […]


Priest of Bones by Peter McL..

Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

It took me a good long time to read this book. I started reading it and I would stop, then I’d try to start it again. Then I decided to just buckle down and read the book. I have to say it was a pretty darn good book. I wasn’t expecting it to be the […]


SNEAK PEEK of Wildcard by Ma..

SNEAK PEEK of Wildcard by Marie Lu

When I found out that Warcross was actually a series, I was thrilled. While I was annoyed by the game descriptions, I really loved the book. I was hoping there would be at least a second part to the novel and there is! Wildcard, the second novel in the Warcross duology concludes the story that […]


City of Ashes by Cassandra C..

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

The sequel to City of Bones, City of Ashes is no less addicting and action packed than it’s predecessor. Just like City of Bones, I didn’t want to put the book down. Lately, that seems like a near impossibility for me. I realized after perusing the library’s website that there are actually six books in […]
