Book Review: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

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. The story centers around two people: Laia, a slave, and Elias, a soldier. Both of these characters travel on separate journeys, […]

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (SPOILERS)

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (SPOILERS)

As many of you may know, I’ve recently discovered the wonderful writing of Sarah J. Maas. After devouring her Throne of Glass series, I picked up Maas’ Beauty and the Beast re-telling, A Court of Thorns and Roses. I probably should say it’s loosely based on the classic fairy tale, as this story is very different. Nineteen-year-old Feyre is the main […]

There are no absolutes in life, save death.” Illuminae is a fantastic book by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff that takes place in the year 2575. The story centers around Kady and her ex-boyfriend Ezra, who end up fleeing […]

The heroine, Amy Gumm, is another Kansas girl who finds herself in Oz, when she finds herself recruited by The Order of the Wicked to assassinate Dorothy. Why? Simply […]

Waiting on Wednesday: The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo) by Rick Riordan

Why I’m Waiting I fell in love with author Rick Riordan’s writing from the very first moment I began reading Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief. I’ve always loved Greek mythology, and that series was very fun to read. Maybe that’s why two of the books were adapted into film. As much as I loved PJ&tO, I […]
