Book Review: Batman, is that really you?

I was so excited when I heard that there would be YA DC Comics novels.  NO way that DC could screw up their characters, right? Wrong. “Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy. The Nightwalkers are terrorizing…

Book Review: TATBILB Series

I love this series to bits, but jeez is it a long title. Lara Jean is one of my favorite protagonists ever.  She’s innocent and clean and likes baking and her sisters and is honest about things.  She’s normal.  I am so fed up with literature and TV shows showing all teenagers being party-going sluts…

Book Review: Blood and Tears

The second book in the Wayward Children saga was much better than the first.  If you want to know why, keep reading. “Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

Book Review: Celaena’s Actions

I’ve read Crown of Midnight probably six times by now, and this last reread really made me sit back and reexamine characters, especially that of Celaena and Chaol.  Chaol, for whatever reason, has had HUGE backlash from the TOG fandom, and I have never understood it, but after reading this book again, I’m even more confused…

Book Review: Stars Above

I read the Lunar Chronicles as they came out, until Stars Above.  Life was too busy for me to read, so I set it aside and forgot about it.  I got a giftcard and decided to buy it since it’s the only Marissa Meyer book I don’t have, other than Winter, and I remembered I had…
