January Wrap-Up

This month has been insane.  Despite having so much going on, I still managed to cram ten books in.  There were some meh ones in the beginning of the month, but the last four I’ve read have been from pretty good to AMAZING, so I’m content.       World of Warcraft: Traveler by Greg…

Top Least Favorite STAR WARS Novels

Hi, my name’s Annie, and I’m a recovering Star Wars addi–let’s stop it right there because while the fandom may be dead for me (screw you, Disney), I’m never letting go of my SW obsession. I’ve read and collected nearly every Star Wars EU novel before Disney got their grubby fingers on my favorite fandom, and…

Bookwyrm Problems #1: Diversity

I feel like this is the number one issue right now in the book world, so I’d like to speak my mind. Warnings: May include mini rants and/or “offensive” content.  If you are easily offended, don’t read this.  I’m not here to sugarcoat. Okay, let’s put this out in the open right now before I…

Bookwyrm Problems #18: Book Suggestions

Photo of my fellow dragon, @thatnerdydragon (aka Evangaline, aka Ngeline). As bookworms (or wyrms), it is our God given right to introduce more into our cults.  Let’s face it, our fandoms are secretly (not so secretly) our cults, and we worship the ground our favorite characters and authors walk upon.  It’s bred into us that…

Book Review: Throne of Glass

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her…

Book Review: WOW Illidan

This review will contain minor spoilers as well as mentions of the Legion expansion of the World of Warcraft  mmorpg. In one word, my feelings on this book : Wow.  No pun intended. You are not prepared.   Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also…

Book Review: The Language of Thorns

I was not a huge fan of this book.  It was OK. Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns. Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might…

Book Review: The Dazzling Heights

Let me first off say, this is my version of a soap opera to binge.  This series has all of the drama and sexual tension (that part I don’t like) of a stupid soap opera, yet here I am reading a YA equivalent, and I can’t stop. **MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS OF THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR** All…

Book review: All the Boring Saints

I tried to like this book.  I tried so hard, you guys, but I couldn’t.  I love Maggie’s work.  She writes some of the most random sentences together and it works…most of the time, it seems.  All the Crooked Saints was a complete letdown. Here is a thing everyone wants: a miracle. Here is a thing…

Book Review: WoW Traveler

If you don’t know me, I’m a HUGE World of Warcraft nut.  I have spent hours researching the lore online, I read every book I can find, and I’m an avid player of the game.  Traveler is Blizzard’s new Middle Grade novel.  I was expecting this to be bland and kiddy, but was pleasantly surprised….
