The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

November 13, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

This novella is a perfect compliment to the two full-length novels in the series, and gives us a glimpse into Auri's life that we would have otherwise never gotten. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a beautiful look into how Auri sees the world and what she does when Kvothe isn't around her.

Auri is a gentle, beautiful, wondrous soul, and her adventure in this novella is heart-warming. I loved every page. I loved getting to know the hidden places that only she visits. I loved discovering a completely new place, naming it, and arranging it so it was...

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

November 12, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

An amazing book, even more so when you realise it’s a début. Début novels usually don’t come to readers so richly told and well-executed. I recommend The Queen of the Tearling to readers of fantasy, and fans of the works of Trudi Canavan and Sarah J. Maas will devour it.

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

November 3, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★½

This is Krit’s story!! I think, aside from Dewayne, I’ve been looking forward to Krit’s story the most. Krit’s a rock star – the lead singer of a band with the tattoos and hoards of women after him to go with that title. Blythe was taken in by a pastor…

Every Word by Ellie Marney

Every Word by Ellie Marney

October 30, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

We take up with Mycroft and Watts some eight weeks after Every Breath, when news from London sets a new sleuthing adventure in motion for the troubled duo. Every Word is a gripping crime-thiller that builds on the foundations laid down in Every Breath, and is every bit as exciting and engaging as its predecessor.

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 20, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I loved everything about A Thousand Pieces of You! It’s a beautiful book and I know I’ll spend a lot of time raving about it. I don’t think I can accurately express how much I loved this book. You’ll just have to grab yourself a copy and experience the awesome yourself.

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

October 17, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Child Eater is a fantastical story about two boys, born in different worlds and centuries apart, who are bound together by magic and fate, and a monstrous creature known only as The Child Eater. He has preyed on generations of children and their ghostly voices cry out for help, cry out for someone to end their curse.

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Talon by Julie Kagawa

October 14, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★

This book is about dragons! DRAGONS!! How excite!! I’m really disappointed with it because Kagawa did incredible things by subverting everything we knew about vampires and dystopia with The Blood of Eden series, but in Talon we’ve gone back to mediocre (and annoying) characters and shaky world-building that made me dislike the Iron Fey books.

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

October 10, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★

Getting to read a tie-in novel that tells us what happened to the Bennets when Lizzie wasn’t making the videos was amazing! I wish all tie-in novels were like this, because it doesn’t just re-tell the story of the videos, but shows us whole new sides to the characters and gives them more depth.

Countdown by Michelle Rowen

Countdown by Michelle Rowen

October 6, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★

At first glance Countdown looks and sounds too similar to The Hunger Games. But I was pleasantly surprised that the two are can be easily separated (the dystopian and kill-people-for-an-audience elements aside).

Twelve by T.M. Franklin

Twelve by T.M. Franklin

October 2, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Twelve rounds out Ava’s journey admirably, and although I am sad to let her go, I have enjoyed every moment of my time with her and Caleb. This is the kind of paranormal fantasy I love to read, and I’ll be looking out for Franklin’s future works with great interest.
