Ban this Book by Adam Gratz

Ban this Book by Adam Gratz

3.5 Nuts BAN THIS BOOK is a middle grade, and a fairly young middle grade book at that. It’s a cutesy take on book censorship and banning for young readers in a time when the community seems to be having this discussion over and over. The main character of the book is a fourth grader […]

4 Nuts LIGHT SPOILERS This book is easily comped as a modern day AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. I really cannot dispute that description. When reading the book it’s the first think you think of. Island party, a list of guest with something to hide, suddenly they all start dying? Yep. But the book is […]

Cover Talk: Wicked King by H..

Cover Talk: Wicked King by Holly Black

Alright everybody, it’s here. Entertainment introduced the new cover for the sequel to Holly Black’s CRUEL PRINCE.     This cover kicks its predecessor’s ass. I wasn’t a huge fan of that original cover, but I ADORE the one for WICKED KING. I love the water, and the murky look of the plants at the […]

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 […]
