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, […]

Sometimes, they are annoying or not my cup of tea.   Anne Ursu, you have forever changed my opinion of middle grade books. Or at least spoiled me.   Hazel, our MC, was perfect. Not the perfect fit.

Book View: The Shadow Thieves

Short & Sweet: A great series that involves Greek mythology that I may point my Percy Jackson fans to at school. I really like middle grade novels that have both a boy and girl main character, as I think it appeals to a wider audience. I definitely enjoyed this first novel in a series that I will be reading more of soon. Full of courage, these two tweens must overcome an evil demi-god and his army of shadows created from their blood. However will they win? Final Verdict: Those who enjoy epic fantasy, mythology and quest based plots, this is the […]
