  I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one. I really love the witty dialogue and how close these two girls are to each other. I really relate to both of them in so many different ways. They are so well written and really jump off the page at you. I also love how the authors really know exactly how people actually talk it makes the dialogue seem so much more natural. Texting or instant messaging is one of my favorite ways of storytelling and the authors pull it off flawlessly I also loved that even though […]

Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Clockwork Ghost

I’ve always enjoyed mysteries and love steampunk novels, of which both genres fit the York series. I love the twists and turns and a new character introduced towards the end of the book. Our trio – Tess, Theo and Jaime are on the case to finish solving the cipher, but also a missing cat and raccoon. There’s some interesting new bad guys – including blonde women who all seem to look the same but aren’t. I also must say I love Aunt Esther who helps the kids out just a little bit during the book and seems to understand what […]

Red, White and Royal Blue B..

Red, White and Royal Blue Book Review

This book has become without a doubt my new favorite book of all time. It has such a beautiful message at its core and being someone who lives in Austin Texas like where Alex is from it adds another layer to it. It feels like what should have happened in America back in 2016, and it kinda breaks your heart in that way. Alex and Henry and amazing, their dynamic, their chemistry is unmatched to any other that I have ever seen or experienced. This book is so incredibly real, important and downright hilarious. I laughed, cried, scream, I felt […]

Book Tour: Bat and the End of Everything

In the last book about Bat, he is going through a lot of changes in his life – thinking about saying goodbye to Thor and releasing him in the wild, having his friend gone for the summer, and saying goodbye to his third grade teacher. For a kid with autism, he knows his strategies and tries his best, but sometimes he just does the wrong thing at the wrong time: like sneaking Thor into his sister Janie’s play and ending up with Thor spraying the crowd and ruining the show. He also does not realize when he is saying something […]

Book Review: Cogheart

Book Review: Cogheart

Cogheart is an interesting steampunk middle grade novel. Set in my favorite steampunk time period, we see an alternate London, full of clockworks, mechanimals, and all sorts of steampunk elements. From one point of view we have Malkin, a mechanical fox who has survived a crash with his inventor Professor John – he must find the Professor’s daughter Lily. Currently, Lily is at finishing school and having a hard time of it. She thinks books are for reading, not balancing on your head to work on your posture. Robert is another character, a teen boy who’s father works with clockwork […]

Never Contented Things by S..

Never Contented Things by Sarah Porter Book Review

This is one of the strangest books that I have ever read, and at times it felt almost as if I had fallen asleep reading and then had nightmares surrounding the characters and the world but no that was the actual book. For the most part I did really enjoy the uniqueness of the book but it also was a bit of a downfall in ways. I really loved the complex characters especially Josh I thought he was really well done. Kezzer is probably the most fleshed out because we spend the most time in her perspective but I loved […]

Book Review: Warrior of the Wild

As a fan of Levenseller’s previous books, I was excited to be able to be apart of the tour for her latest book, Warrior of the Wild. I absolutely devoured this book in a day or two. I love the mix of characters and how they grew as the story went on. I liked how the story came about fully in a circle, showing that the banishments in their villages were the cause of their own issues. I found a lot of strength in Rasmina, who suffered at being her father’s protege and felt like she had to restrict any […]

Book Review: The Cruel Prince

The Cruel Prince is one of the best books I’ve read so far this year. I love tales of faerie cruelty and as this book literally starts with murder, I was taken in quickly and ready to find what else this book would hold. What I loved most about this book is that is very much focused on the love and loyalty of family, but also of making the best of a terrible situation. There’s only slight romance but it’s not a driving point and I really liked that aspect. For the most part, it’s about Jude, who is a […]
