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: GILDED CAGE by Vic James

I was provided a free ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I knew from the moment I saw the description of this book that I was going to want to read it. Having seen the cover, read the description...when it showed up in a NetGalley email to me, I … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: GILDED CAGE by Vic James

BOOK REVIEW: DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS by Laini Taylor

It's been a long time since I read the first two books in this series. I fairly well mainlined them when I first got them, entranced by the world Karou and Akiva were showing me. It's not surprising; I've always liked angels. But this one stayed out of my grasp for a while, and after … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS by Laini Taylor

BOOK REVIEW: THE INSTITUTE by Kayla Howarth

I'm fairly certain I picked this up as a freebie somewhere along the line, though I don't remember where or when. (This happens to me a lot. It's what I get for randomly downloading free books constantly.) Despite the market being super saturated with young adult dystopian stories, I'm still game to read most of … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE INSTITUTE by Kayla Howarth

BOOK REVIEW: THE SELECTION TRILOGY by Kiera Cass

I thought about reviewing these books separately, but I read them in such quick order one after the other, I think it's fair to put America's whole story into one review. I came across THE SELECTION, book one in this trilogy, in a Barnes & Noble several months ago when I was on a bit … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE SELECTION TRILOGY by Kiera Cass

BOOK REVIEW: SUFFER LOVE by Ashley Herring Blake

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I didn't know much about this book from NetGalley's description. The description is incredibly short, and only indicates that it's a YA romance where "a teenage girl falls for the wrong guy." I'll admit that I get easily burnt out on … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: SUFFER LOVE by Ashley Herring Blake

BOOK REVIEW: DOROTHY MUST DIE by Danielle Paige

Okay, so I'll admit. I'm a huge fan of Wicked, both the musical and the book. I've seen The Wiz, both on stage and the movie. I haven't actually seen the original Wizard of Oz movie all that often, and nor have I had a chance to read the books. But I love the story, and the characters, … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: DOROTHY MUST DIE by Danielle Paige
