Book Review: SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi

Welcome to week #1 of my month long review of the "Shatter Me" series by Tahereh Mafi! How on God's green earth had I never picked this book up? "Shatter Me" by Tahereh Mafi was released in 2012, and somehow four years (FOUR YEARS!) passed in ignorance. Yes, I had heard it was a best-seller,… Continue reading Book Review: SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi

Finally!! I've been waiting for the release of this book for years.

I immediately fell in love with the… Continue reading Book Review: BURNED by Cyn Balog

Book Review: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

This book right here is the reason I didn't do a Flash Fiction Friday this week! Sorry! Okay, well maybe that's not entirely true. Yes, I've been reading A LOT, but I also had a few more things to unpack so we could get settled in our new home. (Sorry to have missed a story.) But… Continue reading Book Review: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: THE CROWN by Kiera Cass

Finally! I've been waiting to read/review this book forever! (Okay, slight exaggeration.) I stumbled upon this series last August, when I needed some books on CD to listen to while I had a long drive to and from the 'Write His Answer' Writer's Conference in Philly.

Book Review: The Mermaid’s Sister by Carrie Anne Noble

This book review is one close to my heart. I met Carrie Anne Noble at a writer's conference about a year ago. We got into a discussion and when she mentioned she had authored this book, I got excited because I had seen it as a top book suggestion on Amazon! I love the subject… Continue reading Book Review: The Mermaid’s Sister by Carrie Anne Noble

Book Review: The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa

It's been a while since I've done a book review. Partly due to the fact that I stated I wouldn't review any books unless they had a five-star rating, partly because I've sort of forgotten. Sorry. But the good news is I finally remembered to do a review and I just so happened to read… Continue reading Book Review: The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa

Book Review: Rump by Liesl Shurtliff

So, I think I've decided something. I like to read and I like to blog but I don't necessarily have time to post a review about every single book I read. You've probably noticed the last number of reviews have all been 5 stars, which I think I'll keep as my standard for choosing which… Continue reading Book Review: Rump by Liesl Shurtliff
