Book Review: An Enchantment of Ravents

Are you tired of all the abusive relationships in YA and the stupid stereotype of faeries that have been created recently?  Then look no further than An Enchantment of Ravens for a refreshing reprieve from the over-sexualized, abusive novels of today. Isobel is an artistic prodigy with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair…

The Inheritance Cycle: Dragon Sizes

Welcome to my first in-depth look at The Inheritance Cycle!  Eragon and Co. by Christopher Paolini is one of my top series of all time.  It is one I have reread more than a dozen times as well as taken copious amount of notes and studied religiously (I have an obsession; it’s OK).   This…

Book Review: River of Fire

This was a weird book.  My rating fluctuates between a 3.5 and a 4.  Review will contain spoilers for all previous Warriors books as well as River of Fire. StarClan’s prophecy has been fulfilled, and the long-lost SkyClan has returned to its rightful place among the other four warrior Clans. Many cats believe the danger…

Book Review: Queens of Geek

My review for this falls between 1-2 stars because this was a weird book. I was surprised I didn’t like this book, but reasons are as follows: – I genuinely had a hard time figuring out if I was reading from Taylor or Charlie’s POV. As the book moved on, their characters became so similar,…

Book Review: Orange Vol. 1

Orange was a calming relief to the YA of today’s world. On the day that Naho begins 11th grade, she recieves a letter from herself ten years in the future. At first, she writes it off as a prank, but as the letter’s predictions come true one by one Naho realizes that the letter might…

Book Review: Ally

Ally was a wonderful conclusion to Nemesis, and I loved how everything was wrapped up so perfectly. Princess Sepora of Serubel and King Tarik of Theoria have formed an uneasy truce between their kingdoms since the deadly plague began to rip through Theoria. Since their feelings for each other are entangled in politics and power,…

Book Review: My Lady Jane

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of man things.  Of shoes and ships and ceiling wax and My Lady Jane.” That’s a direct quote from the uncut version of Alice in Wonderland, by the way.  I’m diving right into this review.  Most likely will contain spoilers. At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is…

Book Review: Queens of Fennbirn

I bought this because it’s Three Dark Crowns and I need a fix until book three comes out.  I really didn’t expect myself to like the short stories at all. Together in print for the first time in this paperback bind-up, the dazzling prequels to the Three Dark Crowns series are finally available for fans…

Book Review: An Ember in the Ashes

I’m not sure what made this book not as great for me, but I don’t see why it’s so hyped, and I feel awful about it. Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free. Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies…

Avatar the Last Airbender: North and South Vol. 1-2 Book Review

I’m hoping the creators of the comics stop after this series, because I’m starting to see more of Korra. When Katara and Sokka return home to the Southern Water Tribe, they are shocked to find that it has gone from a small village to a bustling city! Malina, a Northerner, is behind the change and…
