My Thoughts: Oh, how I wanted to love League of American Traitors.  It had such a promising premise but the execution just didn’t work for me.  While it’s a quick read that definitely has it’s fun moments, there just didn’t anything that makes it stand out among the many other young adult novels available these […]

Posted July 24, 2015 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, review / 0 Comments

A School For Brides, the companion to Keeping the Castle, is an adorable read.  Having read Keeping the Castle, I was intrigued enough to come back to this setting once again.  While A School For Brides can definitely be read as a standalone, it reminded me why I enjoyed Keeping the Castle so much. Like […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’m not sure where to even start with Prisoner of Night and Fog.  This is definitely going to be one of those reviews that can’t even come close to doing justice to how amazing the book is.  Anne Blankman’s debut novel has me eager to check out anything else she ever plans to write. First […]

I picked up Sekret, Lindsay Smith’s debut novel, hoping for a good historical novel with some hints of intrigue and romance.  What I got was something so much better!  Lindsay Smith puts a whole new spin on the Cold War and spies both Russia and the United States. The characters really make Sekret so amazing.  Each […]

The Near Witch is one of the few books that I have nothing bad to say about. From the very first line I was hooked and I was on the edge of my seat until the very last page. Victoria Schwab’s debut novel deserves every word of praise that it has gotten. Lexi is one […]
