Book Review: The Midnight Star (The Young Elites) by Marie Lu

Book Review: The Midnight Star (The Young Elites) by Marie Lu

“You cannot harden your heart to the future just because of your past. You cannot use cruelty against yourself to justify cruelty to others.” The Midnight Star was fantastic! In fact I enjoyed it even more then The Rose Society. Adelina is now queen, but has lost the one person who meant the most to […]

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: Light (A Gone Novel) by Michael Grant

“I suppose we’ll behave like a bunch of holier-than-thou hypocrites.
