“Caraval” by: Stephanie Garber

In listening to this audiobook, read by Rebecca Soler, I knew I was going to listen to the whole thing in one day and I was able to do just that. Stopping for breaks and picking right back up, the story line never felt lost or dropped. Everything threaded pretty well together. This was a fun romp and reminded me a lot of a mix between Alice in Wonderland in […]

“The Graveyard Book” by: Neil Gaiman

I had heard mixed things about Gaiman’s work, so I was a little hesitant to jump in to see what I thought. It seemed that either people loved his writing or hated it and there wasn’t much in the middle. I am glad that I decided to pick this up from my local library, because it blew my expectations right out of the water! I LOVED the premise and even […]

“Fins” Trilogy by: Tera Lynn Childs

“Forgive my Fins”(Fins #1) I checked out a few reviews on good-reads before I jumped into writing my own. Only occasionally do I do this. I wanted to see if others were as enchanted with this as I was. Surprisingly, not the first few I read… I did not understand why so many people were down on this book. Yes it is filled with puns…..DELIGHTFULLY filled with puns! (I love […]

“Snow White”, “Cinderella” & “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland” Art by: Camilla Rose Garcia

“Snow White” by The Brothers Grimm: Here I thought I was familiar with The Brothers Grimm version! The lace part I thought was ribbons, I didn’t recall the comb, and the ending for the Queen? I did not remember that being the ending at all! The illustrations are spooky and eerie in such a lusciously Gothic way. I adored the book art both inside and out on all of these. […]

“A Shadow Bright and Burning” (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by: Jessica Cluess

Stunning cover aside, which the meaning of gets further explained toward the end, Cluess begins her tale in medias res. While it always takes a little bit to get ones bearings, this style is always a welcome one for me. I LOVED that she took the trope of Chosen One and spun it on its head. My favorite characters were probably not what many had as favs, Rook probably being […]

“#GirlBoss”by Sophia Amoruso

This is basically the book I will write once I have made my millions. Style and tone-wise that is. Filled with nuggets of wisdom, practical advice, and a bit of memoir this book packs a powerful and empowering punch. Starting a business from eBay and growing to a multi million dollar corporation took her years of dedicated hard work and for me that is the biggest take away here. Work […]

“Big Fish” by: Daniel Wallace

Edward Bloom is quite a character. He obviously uses humor to diffuse serious situations, but he also really likes telling tall tales. I think a lot of it was that he felt like an ordinary man. Too ordinary. Too average. He wanted his son to think he hung the moon. Edward wanted his son to think him mythical. Larger than life. He wanted love and admiration. I don’t think he […]

“A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas

WARNING: The internet is dark and full of spoilers…so if you don’t want this spoiled because you haven’t read it yet, I suggest that you go read it and then come back to this post. Pretty much all of my posts are written post reading of novels and my entire blog is basically one big spoiler…..BUT how I explain something and how YOU picture it happening may be totally different […]

“Life of Pi” by: Yann Martel

While I was reading this, I got about halfway through it with my book notes before realizing that the format I was using was doubling the text format; meaning that the spots where I was marking notes were incorrect by the percentages.Onto the actual review part:I was confused at first about the religious stuff for Pi and then it got explained and made some sense.I was thrown a bit for […]

“Sweet and Deadly” by Charlaine Harris

¬†Hmmm. Okay then. So, this was a short “little” read. For being Charlaine Harris’ first work, it isn’t bad…but I *did* notice that her bad writing habit of overusing the word “little” which has been a prevalent pet-peeve of mine with all of her works began here. Sigh. Moving on… This was an odd sort of tale. There were several extra added details and red herrings added in that I […]
