Audiobook Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

So here it is. A review that I am disappointed to be writing because I just couldnt bring myself to love this book that so many others have loved. I will forewarn you, I may sound like a jerk in spots. But, my reaction is what it is, so I will share it with you anyway. There’s bound to be...

Audiobook Review: The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

I was quite intrigued by the description of this book, but when I heard the audiobook clip, I pushed it to the must read (listen) list. The narration in this book is more of a production than just simply reading. Don’t get me wrong, it is not overdone, but there is mood music in places, sound effects in the background...

Review: Half a War by Joe Abercrombie

Half a War is certainly a good conclusion to the Shattered Sea series. The larger story arc that spans all three books come to an intriguing ending. We also get characters and stories unique to this book. I think it is an interesting way this trilogy was done. Each book focuses on a different set of characters and their individual stories,...

Graphic Novel Review: Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol

Anya’s Ghost is a wonderful young adult graphic novel that both entertains and contains some important life lessons. There’s also some wonderful humor were it pokes fun at some stereotypical YA story lines. Anya, like so many people, feels like she just doesn’t fit in. She has one close friend at her private school, and there’s some fun angsty type humor...

Audiobook Review: Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen

In Stolen Songbird, there is a race of individuals, trolls, that have been cursed to remain confined to their city, Trollus, below the Forsaken Mounts. A witch cast this curse 5 centuries ago, so the humans above rely on rumors and folklore for knowledge of trolls. And lets just say, there is nothing very favorable known or mentioned about either trolls or...

Review: Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder

It’s been years since I read the Poison Study trilogy and I honestly did not expect another book in the series. I have not read the other books in the Ixia series and so am not sure how that may or may not impact this one. Since this is considered a Poison Study book, I would assume that skipping the...

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Not all covers are created equal, in my opinion, and I have to confess to being in love with this one. Pair that with a great experience reading Holly Black’s The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, and it was just a matter of time before I broke down to read, or rather, listen to this one as well. A modern day...

Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

Half a King by Joe Abercrombie is exactly the type of YA book I have been waiting to find. It’s no secret, that Abercrombie is one of my favorite authors, so I was hopeful, but still wasn’t sure what to expect. In this book, Abercrombie does not compromise or dampen his story for a younger crowd. When things get dark and...
