Right Kind of Wrong, the third and final book in the Finding Fate trilogy, lived up to my expectations.  After reading two of Chelsea Fine’s previous novels, I’ve come to expect steamy romance, well-developed characters, and fun, fast-paced stories.  Right Kind of Wrong is not lacking in any of these. Jenna and Jack take center […]

The Girl and the Clockwork Cat stands out as amazingly unique in the YA market.  A steampunk adventure story featuring a half-Japanese heroine and her cat with a clockwork leg?  What’s not to love? Nikki McCormack has a lot of strengths as an author.  Her writing is gorgeous, her characters are well developed, her setting […]

Feuds was far from what I expected it to be and I mean that in both a good and bad way.  I started the book knowing very little about it and I went into it with an open mind.  To be honest  I only really knew that it was a dystopian and all I hoped […]

Shatter, the final book in the True Believers series, was a wonderful conclusion to the series.  Erin McCarthy’s new adult series is full of romance, heartbreak, and tons of laughs. Kylie wasn’t the best at first but she quickly grew on me.  She definitely put a lot of emphasis on what happened with Robin and […]

The Giver has been on my shelf for years!  I’ve always been interested in it but never enough to actually read it.  As required reading for my YA lit class this semester I was finally forced to give it a try and I can see why everyone raves about it. The Giver is a slower […]

This review is going to be extremely hard for me to write.  My feelings for Strange and Ever After are all over the place!  I loved it, I hated it, I couldn’t stop reading it. Strange and Ever After picks up immediately after the ending of A Darkness Strange and Lovely.  Eleanor, Daniel, Joseph, and […]

Posted August 20, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 2 Comments

Gates of Thread and Stone is a strong debut from Lori M. Lee and a wonderful start to a new fantasy series.  It’s got a little something for all readers and I think it’s a great introduction to fantasy if that’s not a genre you’re familiar with. The story starts off strong and continues that […]

A Darkness Strange and Lovely is a strong sequel to Something Strange and Deadly.  It follows the same trajectory of the first book which is to say it’s fast-paced, full of surprises, and surprisingly emotional.  It’s exactly what a sequel should be. A Darkness Strange and Lovely picks up a few months after Something Strange […]

Something Strange and Deadly was one of the series on my list to start and attempt to finish this year.  I’ve had Something Strange and Deadly on my shelf since before the book was published but I never got around to actually reading it until now.  The hype for this series is definitely warranted.  Something […]

The Secrets of Lily Graves is one of those rare YA books that actually manages to surprise me.  I expected to enjoy this one, and I did, but I didn’t expect to by stumped by the mystery and up late into the night reading to the very end.  Sarah Strohmeyer wove a fantastic mystery that […]
