Book Review: Obsidio

Going into this, I had no idea what to expect.  We only had bit-sized glances at the issues going on in this universe, and Obsidio ties the bow perfectly.   Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on…

Book Review: The Wayfarer Redemption

Jessi (@novelheartbeat on Instagram) mentioned how The Wayfarer Redemption is one of her favorite series of all time. I looked it up, liked the premise, and happened to find the books in my library system. I am so freaking happy she recommended this to me.  It was such a breath of fresh air to read…

Library Review: Dog River Public Library

Since libraries should be your number one source of books (and if it isn’t why not??), I want to take this moment to point out my personal favorite.  I’ve visited 17 of the 19 branches in my regional system as well as some in Atlanta, and I can say without a doubt that Dog River…

Book Review: Heart of Iron

Heart of Iron blew me away.  Seriously.  I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t had a good book to read in so long or if it was THAT good (it was that good), but WOW. Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space…

Book Review: Ever the Hunted

I had super mixed feelings for a lot of this book due to one reason: Cohen, but the ending sold me on this series. Seventeen-year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, a legendary bounty hunter—that is, until her father…

Avatar the Last Airbender: Smoke and Shadow Book Review

This review will cover all three volumes of Smoke and Shadow. Why I liked this story: It shows how blatantly people dislike Zuko because he isn’t the tyrannical, power-hungry Fire Lord that Ozai was.  This book also shows the consequences of Ursa’s choice to have her face changed not once, but twice, from herself to…

February Wrap-Up

I feel like I somehow read all of the good books in January, which is why February, with a few exceptions was such a crap reading season.  I’m going to start with the comics, move to the books I hated, and wrap-up with the one I adored.   Avatar the Last Airbender: The Rift Parts…

Book Review: The Cruel Prince

Am I the only one who saw all of the abuse in this and had to put it down? SPOILERY REVIEW FOR THE FIRST 107 PAGES Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever. And Cardan is even more beautiful than the…
