Book Review: The Whispering Skull

The Whispering Skull was a book I had been anticipating since I read the first book in the series last year. Following Lucy, George and Lockwood on their adventures, this book jumps right into the action that I loved of the last book. This time, George’s lack of research puts them in a bit of a spot and they find their nemesis Fittes agents on the scene and basically save them. A wager takes place later in the book as both teams are hired to investigate missing artifacts from a graveyard and I love seeing that light a fire under […]

Book Review: The Ring and T..

Book Review: The Ring and The Crown

As a long time fan of Melissa de la Cruz, I knew The Ring and The Crown was going to be a must read. The summary held so much promise. I just could not see this one failing with me. And it didn’t! Taking place in an alternative version of London, The Ring and The Crown focuses on two girls, Marie and Aelwyn. The sick and frail Marie. The head-strong and powerful Aelwyn. Marie was born to be the next Queen, but it is Aelwyn who has the true potential to be a leader. One must rule while the other […]

Book Review: The Neptune Project

The Neptune Project is a novel I have been looking forward to reading since I heard about it.

Nere has grown up with the dolphins, being able to communicate with them through psychic abilities. When Nere learns that she was genetically altered to live in the sea, she realizes all of her uncomfortable problems with being on land were not […]

Book Review: The Screaming ..

Book Review: The Screaming Staircase

The Screaming Staircase caught my eye months ago when I saw it on Netgalley and was happy to find the time to sit and read on my Kindle for once. I tend towards physical books still but was dying to read this one. The beginning of The Screaming Staircase puts the reader right into the thick of the story, where Lucy and Anthony are currently trying not to get themselves killed by a ghost while missing some very important equipment. I was drawn in from the first page and couldn't wait for the world building, something that did not disappoint. […]

Book Review: The Reluctant ..

Book Review: The Reluctant Assassin

After Artemis Fowl ended, I was sad so when I heard The Reluctant Assassin was the start of a new series by Colfer, I was eager to jump right in. I had this one from netgalley, but ended up finding an audiobook version at the library one day. I'm certainly glad I did because the audio was so well done I found myself finding excuses to keep cleaning, working out or even driving. The beginning of the book opens with the explanation of Chevron's part in the FBI, being a 17 year old girl she is not considered a full […]

Book Review: Never Fade

Book Review: Never Fade

There has always been a certain something that Alexandra Bracken books have brought to the table. Due to this, going into this sequel, I knew that something major would go down… and it did. With The Darkest Minds, I was captivated with the world that Bracken created. Kids surviving a hellish virus only to discover they now are gifted with powers. From being able to control tech to mind reading, these kids not only could change the world, they could destroy it too. Never Fade opens shortly after the mind-blowing events of The Darkest Minds. I will be honest here […]

Graphic Novel Review: The S..

Graphic Novel Review: The Supernaturalist

Plot: I read the novel version a couple years ago and fell in love with the story and Colfer's writing. I was excited to find a copy of the graphic novel at the library and eagerly dove into it. The story was well done and transformed well into a graphic novel. I love the exciting plot of this book, where there are creatures that take energy from humans and a group of kids that try to fight them. Little do they know what their real purpose is and find that these creatures may be different from what they originally thought.  […]
