A Gathering of Shadows by VE..

A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab

5 Nuts Damnit, Schwab, you’re killing me. Take book one, now add in some more pirating, an extra dash of the Triwizard Tournament, and a sword-to-the-gut ending. Yep, that’s this second book in a nutshell. Where Delilah Bard was my favorite character in book one that place is easily usurped by Alucard in book 2. […]

Harry, A History by Melissa ..

Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli

4.5 Nuts Back in the early 2000s everything was Harry Potter. For me it was my world. I wrote fanfiction, wrote on message boards, listened to podcasts and had every Potter related book I could find. One of the podcasts I listened to was called PotterCast and one of its hosts announces that she, Melissa […]

Audiobook Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

5 Nuts I never bothered to read any of Schwab’s YA books. I owned several but none of them really called to me. Then I discovered her adult novels through a free copy of the audiobook for A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC. Here I am now, a Schwab addict. What else would you call someone […]

Artemis Fowl: Eternity Code – The Graphic Nut

It is the strangest thing to read a graphic novel version of a long beloved book. You have your own internal vision of how each character should look, their voice, the way they hold themselves. Then suddenly you have pictures of them before you and they look nothing like the ones in your head. It’s […]

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

I actually picked this book up and read it immediately after finishing A Court of Thorns and Roses, but after finishing the series (as it currently stands at three novels,) I am rereading. This is my review after the second readthrough. CHARACTERS  The characters in this book are amazing! I loved seeing my favorites return, and […]

Book Review: The One Memory ..

Book Review: The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr

I was pretty excited to read this book because the cover is so pretty and the premise of it sounds great. I had mixed emotions about it, though. It ended up being an entertaining and fast read, but overall a little disappointing. I was interested in it enough to want to find out what happened […]
