Assassin’s Heart by Sa..

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers

4.5 Nuts If there’s one video game series that I had to choose to play for the rest of my life it would be Assassin’s Creed. Add a dash of family betrayal and doomed lovers of feuding families (if you say Romeo and Juliet I will smack you) and you’ve got ASSASSIN’S HEART. Just like […]

An Interview with Gwen Katz about Writing and Life.

  Tell us a bit about yourself!  I’m Gwen Katz and I hail from a house full of baby animals in Pasadena, CA. I was a chemist once upon a time, but now I write full-time. I can be easily identified at any gathering as the one with the crew cut and garrison cap who’s probably getting in […]

The Intelligent MC: A Review..

The Intelligent MC: A Review of Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

5 Stars I went back and forth about how I wanted to rate this book. Is it a 4 1/2 or a 5 star book for me? Certainly its my favorite book I’ve read this year. Surely that makes it a 5 star book? But me loving a book and it being a nearly perfect […]

Novella Review: Garnet’..

Novella Review: Garnet’s Story by Amy Ewing

4 Nuts   I’ve always loved Garnet. Honestly, I think he’s my favorite character in the Jewel series. Either him or Lucien. So when I saw he was getting his own novella I immediately pre-ordered that sucker. By this point it’s already been a while since I’ve read it, I’m a little bit behind after […]

Review: The Crown

Review: The Crown

3.5 Nut I have a really mixed history with Kiera Cass’s books. Some I loved, like The Siren or The Heir. Others I thought were just ok like The Selection and even The One to some extent. Or in the case of The Elite and parts of he One there are some that I just […]

Review: You

Review: You

This is not a book that I would ever have chosen for myself. I picked it up at a library sale after meeting the author at last year’s Rochester Teen Book Fest. It was an interesting premise, and I had to ask myself: is it really possible to write a convincing and intriguing book entirely in […]

May contain spoilers for RED QUEEN 4 Nuts Just like when I was writing my Red Queen review, I am writing this Glass Sword review after having marathoned the book in less than 24 hours. When it comes to Victoria Aveyard, the only thing that can stop my binge is a need to get up […]

YA Review: Cruel Crown by Vi..

YA Review: Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard

If you knew me when Red Queen came out you probably saw me freaking out about how much I enjoyed it. Ever since I’ve been obsessed with the idea of book two. Thankfully to tide us over until then, Harper has released a couple of novella. First came Queen’s Song, which I immediately got on […]

YA Review: The Siren by Kier..

YA Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

Kiera’s books and I have a bit of a rocky relationship. I’ve never read an author that I found to be both so consistent and inconsistent at the same time. Here, let me explain. When I read the Selection, I really enjoyed myself. Was it great? No. But it was fun, really fun. And addicting […]
