Book Review: Half Lost (Half Bad Trilogy) by Sally Green

After waiting for what seemed like forever, Sally Green’s conclusion to her popular Half Bad trilogy was released in stores. Of course I ran straight after work to pick up my copy, and was lucky enough to get one fresh off the Barnes & Noble shipment cart. With fevered hands I turned the pages once I got […]

Book Review: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I’ve been wanting to read An Ember in The Ashes since its release, and I wasn’t disappointed. While the novel wasn’t everything I hoped it could be, it was a pretty good beginning to a series.

Book Review: The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle) by Maggie Stiefvater

When Maggie Stiefvater asks her readers what they would take from their dreams if they have the ability to steal things from them, you know things are about to get crazy. Or should I say crazier?
