The Curious Case of the Were..

The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t (The Mummy That Was, and the Cat in a Jar) by Gail Carriger- Audio

4 Nuts This rating is based purely on the story, not on the audio performance I had the misfortune of listening to. A note of interest, skip the Carriger Quartet audio set, the voice acting is god awful and the reading much too fast. But back to the matter at hand, the story itself. The […]

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Mill..

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Miller

4.5 Nuts Awwwww hell yeah! Now THAT is what I’m talking about. If you want a book that discusses identity, culture, and has an awesomely shameless genderfluid character? This one is for you. Sal doesn’t give a fuck if you think they’re wrong, Sal is how they are! Let’s give a hand for Sal and […]

Manners and Mutiny by Gail C..

Manners and Mutiny by Gail Carriger

YAAASSS 5 Nuts! Okay, no question, book 4 beats out all the rest for best book in the series! Be it subtle references to other books in the “-verse” (what’s up Prof Lyle, I see you hanging out with our campy vamp friend!) or events we’ve wanted to see all series long, M&M has it […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ra..

First, a note: if you know me at all, you know that putting the word “Ravens” on anything is going to get my attention. Ravens are beautiful, intelligent, and they remind me of Edgar Allan Poe. I’m going to the Pickerington Public Library Young Adult Book Festival in October, and I realized that I hadn’t […]

Waistcoats and Weaponry by G..

Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Once more, unto the dirigible! Though, oddly most of this book takes place on a train of all things! While not my favorite book in the series, WAISTCOATS AND WEAPONRY is one hell of a wild ride. If you want drama, this is your book. W&W has more twists and turns than a […]

Curtsies and Conspiracies by..

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts So here we are again, back in the Parasol-verse. Since I marathoned the audios I figured I should do the same with the reviews! Book 2 in the Finishing School Series picks up a year or so after the first and is perhaps even better. This may have a bit to do with […]

Etiquette and Espionage by G..

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

4.5 Nuts Other than the short THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE WEREWOLF THAT WASN’T… this first book in the Finishing School series is also the first book in the entire Parasol-verse by Gail Carriger (chronologically). While each of the series can be read separately, they are each part of a larger universe spanning decades in […]

#Fashionvictim by Amina Akht..

#Fashionvictim by Amina Akhtar

TENS ACROSS THE BOARD. Holy SHIT. this is THE year for awesomely psychotic (and fashionable) serial killer books. first #Murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil (which i loved, see review ), and now September’s #fashionvictim. Anya St Clair would do ANYTHING to be best friends with Sarah Taft — even if it means killing anyone who gets […]

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

3.5 Nuts If I had to identify the book or series that was my gateway into dystopia it would have to be this book and this series. One summer back in high school, I think I was a Freshman, I spent and entire summer reading an average of 3 YA books a day (having nothing […]

Bunnicula and Friends Series..

Bunnicula and Friends Series by James Howe and Jeff Mack

If you know anything about me and the books from my childhood I still love to this day, you know that anything Bunnicula related tops that list. Sadly when I was a kid I had no idea these existed, except that I had a few of them in the form of a book of plays. […]
