The freaks are showing signs of intelligence… of making a society… of being a true threat. However, living at Soldiers' Pond, behinds its walls, will protect them for a short while longer. It is not a permanent solution. Deuce knows this. The people of the town know this. They need a plan… and they need it fast. Horde represents everything that the final book in […]

Book Review: The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

Having loved the previous two books, I eagerly started The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two and found the same beautiful prose I was used to. Yet, it felt so slow, much slower than the previous two books. September is becoming an adolescent and seems to be confused about her feelings. Saturday has found his own place and still cares for her. She hasn’t found her place and is unsure of how to react when around him. At the same time, I felt somewhat annoyed with September in this book. I know her character is […]

Book Review: The Fallout

Book Review: The Fallout

The Fallout is a book I was surprised to see come out. The previous book, The Compound, came out in 2008 and had a solid, wrapped up ending. Still, I was excited to see what was next in store for Eli and his family. Probably one of the important relationships in this book is between him and his twin brother, who both thought each other were dead for 6 years. Eli and the rest of his family was in the Compound, his father telling them the world had ended. Dealing with the awful things that happened and more family members, Eddy must […]

Book Review: Of Triton

Book Review: Of Triton

This year has been a roller coaster for book sequels. Some I have loved, some I almost wish I hadn't read. When I got my hands on Of Triton, I was dreading diving back into this series. Of Poseidon, book one of the series, left me with some really conflicting feelings, and I didn't know if I wanted to go through that again. One of the first things I noticed about Of Triton was its slimness. Now, I normally do not pay attention to book size, but for some reason, this time it mattered to me. Mainly, due to one […]

Book Review: Scarlet

Book Review: Scarlet

Reviews: Cinder * Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk * Cinder was hands down one of my top five reads from 2012. Beautifully written, fabulous characters, and one of the best fairy tale retellings I have ever read. But with the unresolved ending, and knowing the next book in the Lunar Chronicles would be featuring a new character and a new story line, the outlook on this series was looking a bit foggy. Or it was until I started reading Scarlet. It is safe to say that if you […]

Book Review: Monument 14

Book Review: Monument 14

Emmy Laybourne's debut, Monument 14, was a surprising and often shocking read. See that first part in the blurb? That is part of the opening page of Emmy Laybourne's Monument 14. Hands down one of the most haunting openings I have ever read in a post-apocalyptic tale. Monument 14 is the type of read that pulls you in and leaves you wondering, 'Could something like this, ever truly happen?' As with most post-apocalyptic reads, there is a questionable level of believability. An earthquake, a volcano, or a chemical spill, all of these are common in our world today. All of […]

Book Review: The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Review: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her Own Making   I absolutely love the cadence of Valente's writing and fell in love with Fairyland in the first book. It was a no-brainer to read a sequel about magical Fairyland. The first thing I love about this book is the marvelous chapter headings that so remind me of olden tales. The pictures within the novel are superb and magical, showing a real image into what the creatures September meets really look like. I just love how September has changed since the last book and how the narrator describes […]
