Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

Book Review: The Game of Love and Death

I was surprised by the lyrical writing in The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough. It really heightened the fantasy and romance in this historical fiction novel. Antony and Cleopatra. Helen of Troy and Paris. Romeo and Juliet. And now . . . Henry and Flora. For centuries Love and Death have chosen their [...]

ARC Review: Four Dead Queens

ARC Review: Four Dead Queens

After the crazy intense situation of obtaining this ARC from the Penguin Teen group at BookCon (I'm sure you've probably heard all about that by now), I was really excited to pick up this book. It was incredibly hyped and I'll admit that I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Unfortunately, Four Dead Queens by Astrid [...]

ARC Review: The Brilliant Death

ARC Review: The Brilliant Death

To say that I was super excited when I first snagged an ARC of Amy Rose Capetta's, The Brilliant Death, at BookCon last year would be a bit of an understatement. I mean a medieval Italy and mafia-inspired fantasy story? SOLD. For Teodora DiSangro, a mafia don’s daughter, family is fate. All her life, Teodora has hidden [...]

ARC Review: Spinning Silver

ARC Review: Spinning Silver

While I did enjoy the overall story, I wasn't quite as impressed with Naomi Novik's, Spinning Silver, as I was with her previous novel, Uprooted. I'm not quite sure if the hype got to me or I was just expecting something a little different. Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't [...]

Book Review: Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)

Book Review: Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)

This book was definitely an interesting read for me. I have so many conflicting thoughts and feelings towards it, that my review might be a little all over the place. But after reading some of the other reviews on Goodreads for Morgan Rhodes' Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdom, #1), I'm not the only one who had this kind [...]

Book Review: Artemis Awakening (Artemis Awakening, #1)

Book Review: Artemis Awakening (Artemis Awakening, #1)

You know when you're browsing BookOutlet and find a book the piques your interest that you've literally heard nothing about, but you say screw it and buy it anyway? Yeah, that's basically how I came to pick up Artemis Awakening (Artemis Awakening, #1) by Jane Lindskold. Artemis is a pleasure planet created by a technologically advanced human [...]

Book Review: Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3)

Book Review: Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3)

Well, I have to say first off that Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3) by Danielle Paige did not go where I thought it was going to... Once upon a time, there was a girl from Kansas named Dorothy. You might know her as the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone. She ended up in Oz, where [...]
