Review: Brisinger by Christo..

Review: Brisinger by Christopher Paolini

The third book in the Inheritance Cycle, this is probably tied for second with the last book in the series. Yeah, Eldest kinda left too much to be desired to beat these last two books. Brisinger has a LOT going on in its pages. No seriously, there is so much going on with Eragon here […]

YA Review: The Siren by Kier..

YA Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

Kiera’s books and I have a bit of a rocky relationship. I’ve never read an author that I found to be both so consistent and inconsistent at the same time. Here, let me explain. When I read the Selection, I really enjoyed myself. Was it great? No. But it was fun, really fun. And addicting […]

Recommendations for the Sherlock-Deprived Fan

You watched the Christmas special. You pulled out your DVD set and marathoned the first 3 seasons or watched them on Netflix. Maybe you stalked the internet for more Cumberbatch or Freeman goodness or went on a bit of a binge of their films and shows. But that only goes so far and now you […]

Help Young Readers in Need!- A Book Drive

Author Amy Spalding [Kissing Ted Callahan, Ink is Thicker Than Water, The Reese Malcolm List, and The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions)] brought something really important to my attention today. She knows a really brilliant young reader, only 13, who has cancer and is stuck in a hospital with very little to do. […]

Review: Eldest by Christophe..

Review: Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Where does one begin? Like this book, right where we left off. Book two, Eldest, starts with the clean up after the Battle of Farthen Dur. If you haven’t read book one, I would stop right now and not finish this review. This is one of those series that is very difficult to talk about […]

YA Review: Eragon by Christo..

YA Review: Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Because Eragon came out in 2003 when I was still pretty young, this book still falls into the “throwbacks” category. However, since the last book in the series came out in 2011 I can’t put the entire series into a Thumbing Through Throwbacks post. Because of that, and since I just did a complete series […]
