Book Review: Blood Magic

Book Review: Blood Magic

I love witch books. Frankly, I wish there were more of them. Blood Magic promises not just an average witch tale. But something darker. And I loved the idea right from the beginning.   Ever since Silla's parents died horribly, nothing has felt that same. People in her small town look at her differently. Whisper that she is going to turn out just like her father. But Silla knows that all the pieces do not fit. How could her quiet, intelligent father kill her mother and then turn the gun on himself? The known facts just do not fit.   […]

Book Review: Siren’s ..

Book Review: Siren’s Storm

I have to say that I am loving the shift in novels to focus on other creatures of mythology rather than the obvious choices. As you can probably guess from the title, Siren's Storm is about sirens. Admit it, you are totally shocked by that, right?   Siren's Storm starts off rather slow. Papademetriou takes her time building the atmosphere one detailed scene at a time.

Book View: Bones of Faerie

Book View: Bones of Faerie

Short & Sweet: Bones of Faerie is a great fantasy dystopian – a genre mix I have never read before. I loved the action, the history and the characters and I cannot wait to read more by this author. I honestly did not want this book to end it was such a thrilling read. Final Verdict: I highly recommend Bones of Faerie to any reader of fantasy or dystopian fiction.

Graphic Novel Review: Babym..

Graphic Novel Review: Babymouse the Musical

I have to say I love Babymouse. There’s always a ton of references to either popular books or, in this case, musicals. Part of her day dreams involve “The Phantom of the Locker”, Grease, and Annie. So adorable. I can see why these books keep flying off the shelf. They’re funny, entertaining reads that kids can really relate to. Babymouse is the type of girl that always has bent whiskers and always ends up in a mess of some sort. Her catch phrase “Typical”. I like how the narrator of the story chimes in at times and has a conversation […]
