House of Hades by Rick Riord..

House of Hades by Rick Riordan

4 Nuts Where the early books in this series are on the simple side, the fourth installment is far from that. HOUSE OF HADES is a heck of a trip around the Mediterranean. I mean our heroes stop EVERYWHERE while getting into also sorts of hijinks with minor gods, thieving dwarves, and many monsters. This […]

Truly Devious by Maureen Joh..

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

5 Nuts   That’s pretty much my reaction to this whole book. I’ve always been a bit if a mystery nut. I probably own just about every Agatha Christie in existence. So when the description said “for fans of Agatha Christie” I was super excited. Happily this book is exactly as promised. The mystery itself […]

The Demigod Diaries by Rick ..

The Demigod Diaries by Rick Riordan

4.5 Nuts For those who read THE DEMIGOD FILES this book is the next step up. Not only do these stories continue the backstory and inform the reader of what is to come in the HEROES OF OLYMPUS series but it also answers a few questions. How could Luke have gone so bad? Was he […]

The Demigod Files by Rick Ri..

The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan

4 Nuts This book is a weird mix of character bios, interviews, a look at Annabeth’s trunk, and a few short stories. The individual pieces are kind of hit and miss, but all of the stories are pretty solid and each is worth a read. Percy Jackson and the Sons of Aries 3 Nuts Not […]

Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and ..

Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsey Cummings

3 Nuts Zenith is one of those books where everyone seems to have an opinion about it whether they’ve read it or not. Some people refuse to give it a chance because of the authors. Others claim it’s far too derivative of other YA books. Me, I like to make my own opinions. They summary […]

The Case of Beasts by Mark S..

The Case of Beasts by Mark Salisbury

4.5 Nuts I’ve always been really interested in how films are made. I studied acting in college, I love watching all the extra features and extended appendices about the process. I own dozens of books about the making of high budget franchises like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. So seeing the Case of […]

Everless by Sara Holland

Everless by Sara Holland

4.5 Nuts In Everless time is money. Literally. This concept is fascinating. So when I heard about this book I knew I was going to have to pick it up. Then along comes the Booked All Night podcast, one of my favorite bookish podcasts I know of, and they didn’t like it! “oh no,” I […]
