Blog Tour: From the Earth to the Shadows by Amanda Hocking

Blog Tour: From the Earth to the Shadows by Amanda Hocking

April 23, 2018 Reviews 2

Some reviews are really hard to write. This is one of them. While I enjoyed aspects of¬†From the Earth to the Shadows,¬†others I didn’t, making this just an okay read for me. I was on the fence about reading this one simply because of my feelings about the first book¬†Between the Blade and the Heart. But after how it ended, I wanted to continue the series and find out what would happen to Malin, Asher, and their friends. From the Earth to the Shadows¬†picks up three days after the end of the first book. I liked this because it meant… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish¬†in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

This week’s topic is “Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read,” and that really doesn’t work for me. If I love a book, chances are I want to re-read it.

LOVED this book!!!¬†Perfectly Summer¬†by is the third installment in , and this time focuses on Levi London and his crush on his best friend Summer. I’m a sucker for best friend romances anyways so it wasn’t a stretch for me to fall in love with Levi and Summer.

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

April 5, 2018 Reviews 2

Perfect companion to !¬†Ilyan¬†by is the conclusion fans of the series have been waiting for. Not only that it sets up the new spinoff series, making me even more excited than I already was. At the end of¬†Crown of Cinders,¬†readers are left wondering what happened during the years Ilyan was missing. Where was he? What happened to him? What was going on that Jocelyn couldn’t find him? This book answers those questions. Ilyan is not the same person I knew and loved from the original series. He is lost, almost like a young child, and frustrated that his memory is… Read more »

March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

April 2, 2018 Reviews 1

Dorothy Must Die¬†by is one of my all-time favorite retellings of¬†The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.¬†It isn’t quite a retelling, but more a continuation of Baum’s classic. Amy Gumm lives in a modern-day Kansas before a tornado sweeps her away to Oz. Her whole life Amy has read the story and wished for an escape like Dorothy’s. Now that she has it though, she realizes Oz isn’t what the books told her it was. The reason why is Dorothy. I really liked Amy. She is a girl who has had her fair share of troubles in life. Her father left her… Read more »
