Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I reviewed Throne of Glass through my old blog in December of 2012. I’v decided to bring back some of my old reviews, particularly those I liked the most or meant the most to me.
As a long time lover of historical fiction, Sarah J. Maas’s debut was sure to please. And boy, oh boy, did it ever. With lots of action, fantasy, a character unlike I’ve read about before, a little romance and set in a … Keep Reading »

A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

Like so many others before me, A Feast for Crows was not what I had expected from this fourth book in one of my favorite series. This was more subdued and provided fewer heart stopping moments than its predecessors. It was nonetheless enjoyable, but still, not what I’ve grown to love and adore with Martin’s series. A Feast for Crows is half of what was once a much larger, broader scope book. From what I … Keep Reading »

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

I reviewed Masque of the Red Death through my old blog in April of 2012. In an effort to rebuild my review archives, I have begun to bring back some of my old reviews, particularly those I most enjoyed, or those that meant the most to me.
As my first official ARC read, Masque of the Red Death will always hold a special place in my heart. But for more so than that reason alone. As a long time … Keep Reading »

Night Beach by Kirsty Eagar

Night Beach by Kirsty Eagar

I reviewed Night Beach through my old blog in January of 2013. I’ve decided to bring back some of my old reviews, particularly those I liked the most or meant the most to me.
Aussie writers are totally kickass. I’ve heard this a million times from various bloggers but hadn’t really experienced it for myself. Well, now I have and I can reaffirm that belief. It should be a mantra. Kirst Eagar’s writing is indescribable. Night Beach infected me deep … Keep Reading »

Discussions & Confessions – Cold Reads

Discussions & Confessions – Cold Reads

Discussions & Confessions is an opportunity for me to get to ramble on about stuff. Things that happen in my bookish world or otherwise. I like to discuss, confess and chatter about things that I think about. So this will be my opportunity.
Cold Reads
About three-ish weeks ago, my house was a living hell. I mean, seriously, it was freaking hot. Virginia experienced the first of its summer heat waves and, as a native Michigander, my body … Keep Reading »

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I revived Shadow and Bone in July of 2012 through my old blog. I’ve decided to bring back some of my old reviews, particularly those I liked the most or meant the most to me.
Shadow and Bone for me was probably the coolest, most imaginative literary adventure I’ve taken thus far in 2012. Complete with action-packed sequences, an awesome heroine and creatures to make one’s skin crawl, I was doomed to love this. You know when … Keep Reading »

Inland by Kat Rosenfield

Inland by Kat Rosenfield

I wanted to read Inland from the moment I saw that first sentence of the synopsis: “The psychological labyrinth of a young woman’s insidious connection to the sea…”. Truly, I was hooked from that moment and saved up my points on Penguin’s First to Read to guarantee my access to this book. But beyond that sentence, I wasn’t convinced on what this book was about. Even after finishing reading it, I’m still fuzzy on the details, but … Keep Reading »
