Book Review: Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco

Book Review: Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco

I read Burnt Offerings as part of the 2016 Horror Reading Challenge July Read-a-long. It took me a while to get into it, because I found it difficult to connect with the characters. Once the story got underway, though, I found it an easier read. Just not a satisfactory one. Maybe that’s why I have no memory […]

Book Review: And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga) by Kiersten White

Book Review: And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga) by Kiersten White

“So the question becomes, Daughter of the Dragon, what will you sacrifice? What will you let be taken away so that you, too, can have power?” I received an advanced copy of And I Darken this spring when I attended Yallwest. It sounded interesting, but I put it to the side as I tried to catch up […]

Series Review: The Wrath & the Dawn / The Rose & the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

“Love is a force unto itself, sayyidi. For love, people consider the unthinkable…and often achieve the impossible. I would not sneer at its power.” I received a copy of The Wrath & the Dawn last year when I attended the Romantic Times convention. It was the hot, “must-read” book at the time, yet I somehow put off reading […]

Book Review: Pucked by Helena Hunting

Alex: “Egg whites are full of protein.” Violet: “So is jizz. You don’t see me harvesting yours so I can drink a glass of it.” And that’s pretty much how the entire book went. Alex and Violet traded snarky humor, throughout the book, and had me laughing hysterically the whole way through. Unlike the typical […]

Book Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Book Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

“There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.” I never read Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 in high school, but I’ve always wanted to read it. As you guys know, I love dystopian stories, so I knew […]

Book Review: Gone by Michael Grant

Book Review: Gone by Michael Grant

“Ninth graders with machine guns: its hard to make that a happy story.” I bought Michael Grant’s Gone some time before New Year’s Eve of 2014. It sat on my shelf for over a year, before I finally decided to read it. It’s not because I didn’t want to. It’s just that there were so many other books I […]

Book Review: I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent) by Barry Lyga

Book Review: I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent) by Barry Lyga

I had seen I Hunt Killers around Goodreads a lot last year, and have been wanting to read it for a while. Though it was different than I expected, I found myself immersed in the weird life of Jasper Dent, son of notorious serial killer Billy Dent. In I Hunt Killers, Barry Lyga introduces readers to a young man haunted by […]
