The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir by Kiera Cass

May 28, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

35 suitors. 1 princess. A new Selection has begun.

The Selection, The Elite, and The One were this great, self-contained little package that dealt with a short span of time in Illéa. When The Heir was announced, I was a bit apprehensive because a spin-off sequel had the potential to ruin all the warm and fuzzy feelings I had about the original series - warm and fuzzy feelings that had taken a super long to develop because the series is so different from what I usually enjoy about dystopian fiction.

I think Cass does an admirable job of telling a...

May 18, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

It was delightful to get back to Yelena and Valek after so long, and Shadow Study proves that the magic of some worlds and their characters only strengthens with time. This book is a wonderful beginning to a kick-ass new series that introduces us to a new threat, some new…

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

April 15, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Insurgent Movie Mini Review!

Quick Verdict: A strong adaptation that remains true to the vision of the first movie. The cinematography and score are again flawless, the action and plotting are tight, and Kate Winslet is scary.

Half Wild by Sally Green

Half Wild by Sally Green

April 8, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

Half Wild is the follow-up to Half Bad. This series follows Nathan Byrn, a half-White and half-Black witch in a world where the two hate each other and don’t usually mix. The fact that Nathan’s father is the most notorious and dangerous Black witch in existence doesn’t help the matter.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

April 2, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It’s an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

March 30, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.

Charm by Sarah Pinborough

Charm by Sarah Pinborough

March 26, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Brilliantly reimagined and haunting, Charm is a dark and sexy retelling of the Cinderella fairytale with an incredible twist. Charm is a brilliant retelling of Cinderella that takes the well known tale to a whole new level. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and can’t wait to see where the next instalment, Beauty, takes us.

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

March 24, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

“A wicked, delicious, sexy Snow White fairytale.” Poison is a scrumptious retelling of a classic tale that re-imagines the world and the circumstances of our beloved characters. Pinborough’s evil queen is more sympathetic than expected and her Snow White is adventurous and sassy.
