Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

  My Review This was my first time reading this book. I have never even watched the movies, and somehow I was lucky enough to avoid any spoilers. I got to enjoy the story like it was meant to be enjoyed so I know more than a few of you Potter fans wish you were me right now and got to fall in love with this series for the first time. What can I say?   While reading this, I…

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

  My Review Everything that I didn’t like about this book I’m positive other people love so take this review with a grain of salt.   The author tossed almost all the traditional werewolf folklore out the window, but I happen to like traditional werewolf folklore so it didn’t work for me. I love the fact that Sam wasn’t a typical “pretty boy alpha male with a perfect body”, but werewolf novels are one of the few times that type of…

Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

  My Review This was the definition of a three star read.

She is sent there to avoid a marriage to the old and cruel man her father sold her to. Ismae becomes an assassin and at 17 she is sent on her first  major assignment….

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

  My Review I have read and enjoyed several Beauty and the Beast retellings so when I say this is one of the best Beauty and the Beast retellings I have ever read, I don’t make that statement lightly.   The author didn’t stick too closely to the source material. Nyx wasn’t exactly beautiful and Ingnifex wasn’t really a beast, but the author made sure to take several elements of the original story and give them a fresh twist. The…

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

  My Review Serena lives in a world filled with magic and where women are considered to be nothing more than the possessions of their warlock masters. This was a well written book, but the entertainment was lacking for me. The magic system wasn’t explained in any sort of detail. All I know is that the men are powerful warlocks who seem to feed off the magic the women possess; however, the women never perform any magic themselves. I have…
