Book Review: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower Series) by Stephen King

Book Review: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower Series) by Stephen King

“Go then, there are other worlds than these.” As a child my favorite Stephen King novel was The Eyes of the Dragon. It’s not as popular as his other books, but I loved it because it was like a fairy tale. Later when I learned that the villain in that story appears throughout King’s books, I’d decided […]

Book Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been waiting for Marissa Meyer’s new stand-alone novel, Heartless, ever since news of its release dropped. As a fan of her Lunar Chronicles series, I had really hit hopes for this novel, and I wasn’t disappointed. I received a copy of the book earlier this year when I attended the YallWest Book Convention in Santa Monica, California. It […]

Book Review: Gemina (The Illuminae Files) by Marie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina is the second book in The Illuminae Files, and is just as good (maybe better) than the first novel. In this story we are aboard the Heimdall with two new characters, Nik Malikov and Hanna Donnelly, as they are hijacked by mercenaries for BeiTech as part of the coverup from the first novel. Meanwhile, Katy and Ezra […]

Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

“They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense. But now I knew that every mad word was true.” I’ve been wanting to read Rosamund Hodge’s Cruel Beauty since it came out, and I’mg lad I finally picked it up from the library. This Beauty and the Beast re-telling […]

Book Review: Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles) by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Book Review: Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles) by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

I first began this series about 3 or 4 years ago, so I was kind of hazy on the events of the last novel. Usually, I would re-read the series, but The Caster Chronicles has never been one of my favorite YA series. In fact, the only reason I’ve read past the first novel is due to […]

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 […]
