The Forest Queen by Betsy Corn..

Posted September 13, 2018 by Kaitlynn in review / 1 Comment

My Thoughts: The Forest Queen was my first foray into Betsy Cornwell’s books and I feel like I made the right choice starting with this one.  It’s pitched as a gender swapped retelling of Robin Hood but it’s so much more than that.  While that description will definitely be what draws readers to it, the […]

My Thoughts: It’s way past time that I read a Sara Raasch novel but I knew I needed to start with These Rebel Waves.  I’m always on the search for the perfect pirate novel and while These Rebel Waves may not have been the best, it’s definitely up there on my list. I struggled with […]

My Thoughts: Bring Me Their Hearts had a lot of potential.  A story about a girl whose heart is in the possession of a witch and the only way to get it back is to trade it for the prince’s heart?  Sign me right up.  I had extremely high expectations for this one and I think […]

My Thoughts: I’ve loved Alex Bracken’s writing since I read her first novel, Brightly Woven.  I don’t read a ton of middle grade novels but I’m always willing to check out a new book by an old favorite.  The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding is one of those books that honestly makes me eager to […]

Spindle Fire (Spindle Fire #1) by Lexa Hilyer | Review

Spindle Fire (Spindle Fire #1)..

Lexa Hilyer impressed me with her previous novel, Proof of Forever.  Spindle Fire is such a departure from that story though, that I went into this one as if I knew nothing of the author’s work.  To be completely honest, this was one I picked up solely on the appeal of the gorgeous cover.  This […]

CITY OF EX-BOYFRIENDS A friend who read an early draft of Julia Vanishes asked me if a certain guy in the book was drawn from a certain guy in my (past) life. He isn’t. But a few days later I was drawing a map of Julia’s home, Spira City, and thinking about the character of […]

I’m still a little in shock that this series is over so forgive me if my thoughts are all over the place.  I finished this last week and this is the first time I’ve even felt like I could string together coherent sentences about it.  That should tell you plenty about the finale to the […]

Posted April 22, 2016 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

The Star-Touched Queen, Roshani Chokshi’s debut novel, will have you shaking your head in disbelief that it is, in fact, a debut novel.  The Star-Touched Queen reads like Roshani Chokshi has been writing her whole life and I’m sure this will not be the only wonderful, heartbreaking book we get from her. Pros: Romance: While it […]

Kat Howard’s debut novel landed on my doorstep one afternoon and, after reading the blurb from Neil Gaiman, I decided I’d give it a shot.  Roses and Rot is unlike anything I’ve ever read and seriously impressed me. Pros: The writing: Kat Howard’s writing is by far the best thing this book has going for it. […]
