Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

4 Nuts Now this is what I remember loving when I think of the Uglies Trilogy. Where UGLIES is the intro to this world PRETTIES is the exploration of the meat of it. The world the Pretties live in is very different from that of the Uglies and the books are sort of the same […]

How to Marry a Werewolf by G..

How to Marry a Werewolf by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Well who would have thought I’d like Major Channing? Not me. I’ve always thought him one of Miss Carriger’s least likable supernatural characters. Major Channing is a major ass. However I suppose even the unlikable beast can be tamed by the right person. For Channing, I suppose that’s an American with a “scandalous” […]

The Evil Lives!: Fear Street..

The Evil Lives!: Fear Street Super Chiller by R.L Stine

3.5 Nuts Lawd, we’re back to weird. This book follows in more the vein of NEW EVIL than in the original trilogy. Meaning: it’s very weird. However, there’s plenty of good in this one to counteract the weird and the worst of that is mostly confined to the end of the novel. But I digress. […]

The New Evil: Fear Street Su..

The New Evil: Fear Street Super Chiller by R.L. Stine

  3 Nuts What in the devil’s hell is this? As a young reader who had decimated all the age appropriate books long before my peers, I moved on to these scary little novels quite early. And I loved them, reading every single one. Somehow though, even though I KNOW I read this book, I […]

Third Evil: Fear Street Chee..

Third Evil: Fear Street Cheerleaders by R.L Stine

4.5 Nuts “Guess who’s back. Back again. Corky’s back. Tell a friend” And so here we are, the last book in the original Fear Street Cheerleaders series. Of course there are 2 more, plus the origin story (which is technically a Fear Street Saga but I totally consider it part of the Cheerleaders canon as […]

The Second Evil: Fear Street..

The Second Evil: Fear Street Cheerleaders by RL Stine

4.5 Nuts And we’re back in Shadyside for another round of cheerleader murder. You know, I think the fact that these were my favorites says a lot about me. There may have been a few moments I rooted for The Evil. But enough about that, let’s continue! The Evil is at it again, but who […]

The First Evil: Fear Street ..

The First Evil: Fear Street Cheerleaders by RL Stine

3.5 Nuts Well now, it’s this a spooky blast from the past. As it is October I decided to go back and read one of my favorite nostalgic horror series from my childhood, The Fear Street Cheerleaders. This spin off series from the regular Fear Street novels features “The Evil” of Sarah Fier, later Fear. […]

Romancing the Werewolf by Ga..

Romancing the Werewolf by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts I would give this book 6 nuts is such a thing existed. That’s not a joke or exaggeration, I loved this book that much. While it’s the second of the Supernatural Society novellas, it is without doubt first in my heart and probably my favorite piece of Parasolverse writing. ROMANCING THE WEREWOLF has […]

Imprudence by Gail Carriger

Imprudence by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts   Now this is what I expected of a Gail Carriger spin off series! This is the kind of book I really wanted from PRUDENCE. There’s plenty of interaction between Rue and Alexia but it is less harsh and unkind that it seemed in PRUDENCE. I had a lot of issues with the […]

Prudence by Gail Carriger

Prudence by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Well now, this was different.  After two series and two novellas with Miss Carriger I thought I knew what to expect from her. Until Custard Protocol, that is. It’s a strange feeling after being so in love with a series to have to go back and reacquaint yourself with the same world from […]
