Scarlet in the Snow by Sophie Masson

It is a tale as old as time—and this book is a remix…or pre-mix? Scarlet in the Snow is a retelling of “The Beauty and the Beast”. Although it is not new for classic fairy tales to be rewritten, they are generally horrible or pale in comparison to the “original”. It is safe to assume [...]

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White

A very interesting book. Loved how the cover drew me in, but the plot kept me within the covers. I loved the book to bird (Sir Bird) character. Sir Bird added in a interesting concept to the plot. White did a great job at creating the plot along with creating an ending, realistic with the [...]

Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan

But, to avoid being a dried-up, spinster-like individual I thought I would try and expand my horizons and show people that I am a [...]

Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch

A very intruding read. Seeing how this world is divided, and how items will fall to work when moving over a simple line marking two different places was quite interesting. I didn’t like how Hirsch ended this book. I didn’t see it as a solution to any problem that was created/presented within the plot.

Breath of Iron By Kate Cross

An awesome steampunk novel. It is the third book in this series (Clockwork Agents). I love how the suspense is built up over the course of the book and how neatly Cross wraps up. She  leaves room for more novels; however there doesn’t have to be anymore. Cross does an excellent job at describing a [...]

The Goddess Test By Aimee Carter

Great book, I loved how the story kept the Greek gods in their typical natures but also fit on a modern day earth. I so can’t wait to read the next book to see how Hades will have a wife and queen.

Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena By: Rick Riordan

Love the plot of this book, Riordan is keeping the two camps together, however showing how well they could work together to keep the world from ending. I cannot wait for the next book, I am curious at how the Doors of Death can be closed, and who will be closed on the inside, if [...]

Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta

I enjoyed this read. Marchetta has pulled the characters and plot together again.  I hope there is more to the stories of Lumatere and its neighboring nations.

Dark Triumph By: Robin LaFevers

Awesome sequel to Grave Mercy.  LaFevers has kept with the theme, and characters from Grave Mercy. I love how LaFevers not every daughter of death has the same talents, or gifts. I cannot wait for the next book.
