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 […]

Book Review, Blog Tour, and Giveaway: The Lost Girl

I’m so excited to be hosting a stop on the official blog tour for The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu today. I love her books and all things fairy tales and cannot wait to share my thoughts on her latest novel. The Lost Girl is a tale both modern and fairy tale, a fantastic urban fairy tale with quite a few twists and turns that will keep you guessing about what is really going on. The story starts with two twins finding out they will be in separate classes for the first time. Not only that, but they join separate after school clubs, […]

The Manic Pixie Dream Boy by Lenore Appelhans Book Review

This is an extremely interesting premise and it is quite unlike anything I have ever read before. There was some great breaking of the fourth wall and the whole book comes off very meta which I really enjoyed. Our main character Riley is someone you start rooting for almost automatically because he has such a likable personality and I really enjoy his struggle with whether he is who he is because of programming or because that really is him. There is a great moment in the book where the characters are talking about how readers are clamoring for more diverse […]

A Curse so Dark and Lonely Book Review

  This was probably the most interesting take on the beauty and the beast story that I have read yet. Our Main character Harper has cerbel palsey but she doesn’t let that define her. She saves a girl who was obviously drugged from being taken by some guy by hitting him with a crow bar. (Yes she really is that b*tch) She ends up being taken instead to the Kingdom of Emberfall where she learns there is a curse done by a enchantress scorned. Harper is desperate to get back home to her brother who she was lookout for when […]

Book Review and Blog Tour: A Dastardly Plot + Giveaway

I always enjoy strong female characters and with a world against them, I love to see how they rise above and become more than they could imagine. A Dastardly Plot is one of those stories. Molly is the daughter of an inventor who has not been recognized because of her gender. Since her father passed away, Molly has quit school and sells pickles in order to help her mother have time to invent. When they gain the opportunity to display her flying invention at the World Fair, she thinks all her and her mother’s troubles have ended. Of course, that […]

Book Review and Blog Tour: The Treasure of Mad Doc Magee

Jenny and Pandora are best friends, but very different. Jenny is tough and loud, but Pandora is quiet, lacking humor and full of truth. Together, they discover a treasure map (of a skeleton) that may lead them to a gold nugget which can change their future. Set in New Zealand in the aftermath of the gold rush, there’s an old west feel to the novel. I like the variety in characters, and the depth to each. Each one has dealt with something in their past or present that is hard and I feel that in each character. Our two main characters […]
