BOOK REVIEW: THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell

A return author to my shelves! This is a long overdue review (my apologies to the author!) but I felt like every time I sat down to write something about it, I couldn't quite find the words. I was first introduced to Campbell as an author through Story Plant, the publisher she's worked with. A … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell

BOOK REVIEW: THE ESCAPE ROOM by Megan Goldin

Another NetGalley book, reviewed later than intended. I picked it up as a library book recently--ran out of time--got it again... At that point, all you can do is hope that the book is going to be worth it. I'd already been disappointed by one I'd done this with; I wasn't ready for a second. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE ESCAPE ROOM by Megan Goldin

BOOK REVIEW: KINGDOM OF EXILES by Maxym Martineau

I would have received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review if I'd been better at downloading things. As it is, I got it from my library. I'll have to admit, the description of "Assassin's Creed meets Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is definitely enough to pique … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: KINGDOM OF EXILES by Maxym Martineau

BOOK REVIEW: THE PATH KEEPER by N.J. Simmonds

Thank you to NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! Yet again, I prove myself incapable to keep my own time frames, and ran out of time on this book before it was archived. I swear, every time I get a book on NetGalley, life immediately decides that … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE PATH KEEPER by N.J. Simmonds

BOOK REVIEW: STARWORLD by Audrey Coulthurst and Paula Garner

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I'm always up for a YA story of differing worlds - especially when it sounds like something from the Breakfast Club. This is the princess and the basket case, finding an unlikely friendship and figuring out where to go from there. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: STARWORLD by Audrey Coulthurst and Paula Garner

BOOK REVIEWS: ….uh, several

So I haven't been reading a ton, but I've been reading enough that I feel bad not having put anything up here lately. I've been doing a lot more and haven't quite found the balance I want between them all, hence the radio silence on here. As I always say, I'm hoping to get my … Continue reading BOOK REVIEWS: ….uh, several

BOOK REVIEW: THE 7 1/2 DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE by Stuart Turton

I'm from a family of readers, and my father has always been the one who when you tell him that he HAS to read a book, it makes him less likely to actually read it. I've inherited a lot of this from him. But as much as both of my parents love to toss books … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE 7 1/2 DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE by Stuart Turton

BOOK REVIEW: THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert

When THE HAZEL WOOD came across my path, it absolutely sounded like it was my kind of book. Fairy tales, but the dark side of them, blending into reality. What wasn't there for me to enjoy? Plus, the cover art is absolutely stunning. One hundred percent I was into this book. And I was delighted … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert

BOOK REVIEW: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

I can't for the life of me remember where exactly I found this book. I know it was a NetGalley book that got lost to the annals of archives, and I had to go back through and track it down again so that I could read it and review it. (Not that I've done a … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

BOOK REVIEW: THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  I'm never write sure what to make of the books I pick up from netgalley. I've read some really amazing things, and I've found some authors I will actively avoid in the future. I don't mind the disparity of it; … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn
