Book Review: Warrior of the..

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: Stars Above

Book Review: Stars Above

I was very sad to find that Winter was the last book in the Lunar Chronicles series, so I was very happy to see her short story collection coming out. Stars Above has nine different stories in it. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on each below. The Keeper: This story was from the point of view of Scarlet’s grandmother – Michelle Benoit. I loved seeing more from the point of view of this brave and wonderful woman. Scarlet runs away from her father after he spends too many nights drinking and ends up staying with her grandmother. Unfortunately, her grandmother now has another […]

Book Review: Horde

Book Review: Horde

It’s been a while since I read the last two books, but I jumped into Horde without needing much thought. The other two books stood out so well in my memory that I caught on quick and loved jumping back into the dangerous world. A new favorite character emerged in Morrow, a very skilled and beautiful fighter who has a little budding romance with Tegan, the healer character who still is suffering from a limp. She learns to fight as well in this book and there’s a ton of action and lots of twists in the plot that I did […]

Book Review: The Boy Who Lo..

Book Review: The Boy Who Lost Fairyland + Giveaway

The Boy Who Lost Fairyland blew me away. Instead of from September’s point of view, we follow Hawthorne, a troll who is about to become a changeling and take the place of a human in Chicago. But as Thomas, he always knows something is off and doesn’t act “normal”. It becomes clearer when he meets Tam, a girl at school who also is a changeling. Tom and Tam become friends and she reveals to him what they really are and what they can do, bringing objects to life. This leads them back to Fairyland through some mishap and they begin […]

Book Review: Mortal Danger

Book Review: Mortal Danger

*Warning: This review may (and probably does) contain some minor spoilers from Mortal Danger. Sorry, it really couldn’t be helped. Please continue reading at your own discretion.* Ann Aguirre is one of those authors that pretty much anything YA that she comes up with, I will read. No questions. No debate. She is basically an auto-read author for me. When I first heard about Mortal Danger, there was no question. I had to have it. That very moment. I NEEDED it. But once I got it, I was very surprised with what was in its pages. Let’s me just start […]

Book Review: Cress

Book Review: Cress

Cress takes place right where the previous book left off. I love the way this series is starting to spin off into many different story arcs with more new and interesting characters with each book. Cress is the Rapunzel of space, living in a satellite and her task is to find Cinder, only she wants to find Cinder so she can be rescued, not to reveal her location. Cinder, Captain Thorne, Scarlet and Wolf are together at the start of the book, until the rescue mission to Cress goes wrong when Sybil, the thaumaturge who Cress reports to shows up […]

Book Review: Scarlet

Book Review: Scarlet

Having enjoyed Cinder, I was anticipating loving Scarlet, as I tend to love anything Red Riding Hood. I sat on an ARC of this and then a hard cover and then finally downloaded the audiobook from the library and set to cleaning. I loved the audio version first of all, I felt the narrator did an amazing job bringing out the personalities of all of the characters. Set from the point of view of Scarlet and Cinder, both girls are very different, but both very admirable. Cinder had been captured at the end of the first book and is now […]
