Reign the Earth by AC Gaughe..

Reign the Earth by AC Gaughen

3.5 Nuts Have you ever read a book that you liked but it just took FOREVER to get through. That’s REIGN THE EARTH for me. It books me 21 days to get through this book. Anyone who knows me knows that NEVER happens with anything smaller than 1500 pages. Seriously. By no means is my […]

You Will Be Mine by Natasha ..

You Will Be Mine by Natasha Preston

4 Nuts 2018 is apparently the year of YA serial killer mysteries. So if you’ve just read Maureen Johnson’s TRULY DEVIOUS and want more of the same then this book is right up your alley. Though with less of the Christie feel and no flashbacks. Like my earlier mystery read of the year, the murderer […]

Dragons Beware by Jorge Agui..

Dragons Beware by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado- Graphic Nut

4.5 Nuts When it comes to middle grade graphic novels nothing makes me happier than dragons. If I had to rank these Chronicles of Claudette graphic novels I’d have to say DRAGONS BEWARE is my favorite, followed by MONSTERS BEWARE (which bumps up to 4 nuts now that I know what’s going on) and the […]

Giants Beware by Jorge Aguir..

Giants Beware by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado- Graphic Nut

3.5 Nuts Thanks to the wonderful people at First Second I got a chance to review the two earlier books in Claudette’s story. I read both this and the second book, DRAGONS BEWARE in a day. They’re pretty fast paced graphic novels, with cute art and enough action to keep children and adults interested. This […]

Monsters Beware by Jorge Agu..

Monsters Beware by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado- Graphic Nut

3.5 Nuts What’s this? A graphic novel from an Ohio Author? It’s not time for OAAA yet! First Second was kind enough to send me a copy of this just because I liked the art. Little did I know that I would find a connection to the theme I often have here on this blog! […]

Catching Fire Movie Review- ..

Catching Fire Movie Review- Page to Screen

  Continuing with the HUNGER GAMES recapping we have the film adaptation of CATCHING FIRE. Like HUNGER GAMES, I never reviewed this when it came out. In fact I didn’t even see it in theaters. I was too worried about upcoming college exams. And so I didn’t see this movie until it came out on […]

Hunger Games Movie Review

Hunger Games Movie Review

  It’s been a decent amount of years now since THE HUNGER GAMES was released but I recently realized that I never reviewed it when it came out. Since I just did a reread of the series and my husband had not yet experienced these films I decided to force him to sit down with […]

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collin..

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

2.5 Nuts Back when I first read this book I absolutely hated it. I would have given it one star and tossed it out a window. This time going through I chose a different format: audiobook. Now whether it’s the fact that the narrator was great or that the book has improved as I’ve aged […]

Catching Fire by Suzanne Col..

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

3.5 Nuts WARNING, SPOILERS It’s been a long time since I read this book. While I’ve reread HUNGER GAMES at least once, CATCHING FIRE I’ve only read in parts. Part of this is because it has a bit of a slow start. I’ve gone back and read the part about the Quarter Quell but skipped […]
