“Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance” by: Ruth Emmie Lang

My initial first response in reading this book was sheer childlike glee and excitement. It has been a LONG time since I dove into a Fantasy novel, especially by a new author, and loved every moment of it. There were snippets here that reminded me a bit of the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. I feel like especially the elements toward the end where a certain young character is introduced […]

“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by: Mark Haddon

You’re welcome. 🙂 This was the sixth book I completed for #Booktubeathon2017. Originally I had been planning […]

“When Dimple Met Rishi” by: Sandhya Menon

This was on my TBR for a while before I finally decided to dive into it for #Booktubeathon 2017 which ran from July 24th-July 30th. This was the second book I completed for #Booktubeathon2017. I chose this one as the “Read a hyped book” challenge. This was on my TBR for a while before I finally decided to dive into it for #Booktubeathon 2017. I listened to the audio book […]

“In 27 Days” by: Alison Gervais

There are few books that I feel show strong character relationship builds…this book was one of them. The relationship between Hadley and Archer felt extremely realistic. Archer is not 100% perfect Mr. Prince Charming Swoon over him because he is so perfect. He is flawed. He has issues. He isn’t your “typical” loner bad boy that just needs some good girl to come along… ::::::WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD:::::::: Hadley reminded me […]

“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 […]

“Roar” by Cora Carmack

Okay, so the cover art for this book is startlingly gorgeous. Major props to the artist and to the publishing company and for everyone involved in making this so visually breathtaking. To address the startlingly obvious elephant in the room there are more than a few comparisons that cane be made between the female protagonist Aurora and Daenerys from the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. […]

“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 […]
