Feiwel and Friends were lovely enough to have sent me an advanced copy of Mortal Danger (always so exciting)! I’d already seen some early reviews, despite trying my hardest not to, and they were MIXED. It was clear that this was a book people either really loved, or just did not connect with, so I went into my reading optimistically, determined to ...
Every time I’m asked about what my favorite books are, The Woman in White comes to mind immediately. I’m not quite sure how I came across Wilkie Collins in the first place; honestly, I think I might have just seen this book on the shelf and liked the cover, but once I discovered it was being compared to The Turn of ...
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there. At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life. The thing I loved ...
There is nothing like a Daphne du Maurier book. You’re probably familiar with her work, whether you know it or not–du Maurier wrote the short story that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, and is probably most famous for her novel Rebecca, which was made into a fantastic movie with Lawrence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. (Omgosh, just thinking about it makes me ...
Truth? I was a little disappointed by Perfect Lies. I loved Mind Games, the first book in this duo. I love these characters, Fia and Annie, and the sisterhood they share. I love their connection to each other, and the way they keep each other sane and moving forward in impossible situations. I adore the premise of the books: ...
So, you know how sometimes you read a book, or even a few books by a certain author, and suddenly you become a complete and total evangelist for that person? Yeah…I’m a Kasie West pusher. I’m pretty sure that just about everyone I meet must read her books, and that they will fall 100% IN LOVE with them. And ...
I’m really struggling to start this review, and I think I’ve put my finger on my problem: Don’t Even Think About It is kind of a muddle. I’d like to start by giving you a little plot synopsis, but I don’t even know whose name to start typing: there is no main character, no voice through whose eyes this story is ...
  So. Usually, I do not condone dragging a series out longer than three books (if that’s even necessary; honestly, what ever happened to writing a standalone book? Sometimes that’s okay!), but so help me, if Infinityglass is really the end of the Hourglass series, I will be a very sad reader indeed. Myra McEntire is extraordinarily clever, really, having set ...
I received this lovely, glossy, *autographed* copy of Mind Games right from the hands of Kiersten White herself. I’d like to pretend it’s because I’m superfancy, but really it’s just because I follow her on Twitter like the giant book geek I am, and I won a contest. But still: how cool is that?? An author mailed me a ...
If I Should Die is a sneaker of a book. Firstly, let me just say that I had to wait TWO MONTHS to read it after I put it on hold at the library, because it was that popular. I just finally got my hands on it last week! Anyway. I got a kick out of reading Amy Plum’s first two ...
