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 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 […]

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. […]

Mistborn: The Final Empire b..

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson- Audio

4.5 Nuts If I had to describe MISTBORN in one sentence it would be this: SIX OF CROWS for adults. Darker, grittier, and much slower pace-wise, MISTBORN certainly can be read by a YA audience but only those who are up for a lengthy journey. There’s no explicit sex for parents to be worried about, […]

Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel by AW Jantha

4 Nuts Note: I debated for a long time when to post this. Right after release (I got the book a few days before, no time to finish it right away)? In October for a Halloween thing? I decided on early September, partially because it took so long to get through part one (I’ll explain) […]

The IF YOU GIVE…. Series by Laura Joffe Numeroff- Past Picture Books

Most people born after 1985, the year IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE came out, remember this series fondly. Whether you only read the first book, the first 3, or had them all as a child, these books are still around and in popular memory today. As it stands today, there are somewhere around […]

Pins: Decorating and Maintence. (Or, How to keep Your Pins from Falling Off Your Bag)

  As bookworms we always seem to collect a large amount of swag. One of my favorite types of swag is in the form of pins and buttons. Not only are they fun to decorats your bags with but they are great conversation pieces. “WHERE DID YOU GET THAT PIN?” my coworkers ask. “Oh its […]

Amazon Deals and Recommendat..

Recently I started an influencer page through Amazon. The idea is that any revenue I get can go right back into hosting our site. However for the first few month of having this page up, I’m going to be using the funds to purchase any missing books in series donated to BOOKS FOR KIDS.  However another […]

BOOKS FOR KIDS Donation Prog..

BOOKS FOR KIDS Donation Program

What is BOOKS FOR KIDS? I started BFK a few years back after visiting a children’s hospital and seeing that the kids there had very little access to good reading material. The playroom had a small shelf in the corner with an old, torn up selection of mostly picture books and not much else. Most […]
