Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass
Reviews / April 19, 2016

The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor. America is just a simple girl from the 5th caste. Her life is already all planned out. She’s with the guy she wants to marry (even though Aspen is a 6), she has a job she likes and is good at, and she is saving for her simple dream future. All of that changes when the King announces that he is going to hold a Selection for his son’s hand in marriage. Of all the girls that apply only 35 will get the chance to win prince Maxon’s heart. Before America knows it she is whisked away to the palace and eating better than she has in all her life. Is it enough to change her heart? I fell in love with this book. The innocence of the relationships built in here was so endearing I couldn’t put it down. I love how spunky she is to the point of almost being abrasive. The political system is a lot like the hunger games, except for the king trying to kill everyone. Overall I ate this book up and was hungry for more. Love Love!!

Review: Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Reviews / April 15, 2016

Such a pretty book. I couldn’t wait to get my peepers on it. Modern fairy tale with a twist. Hazel and Ben live in a town that is just like you or I, but with one small addition. There is a glass coffin hiding in the woods with a boy with horns inside. Its been there so long no one knows exactly when it first showed up, but it has been part of their lives for as long as they can remember. Until one day, the unbreakable coffin is found shattered and empty. This book reads almost like a video game. Hazel is like you and me as a child, running around pretending to be a knight. There is boss battle after boss battle until you get to the biggest boss battle of them all!! With surprise twists all the way until the end, it was a very fun read.

Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Reviews / April 7, 2016

Young ambition and flatulent trolls. Eoin does a very good job building a cast of characters and allowing us to see the situation from everyone’s point of views. Artemis is a wealthy kid with the desire to find the secrets and be the first human to steal a fairies gold. With the help of Butler, he gains access to the fairies law book and decodes it. The trap is set, sprung, and chaos ensues! Even though this is a story of man vs. fairy, they are able to see the others point of view and appreciate their differences and separate accomplishments. There’s tech, explosions, jail breaks, gold, and a whole lot of fun!

Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Reviews / April 3, 2016

In a world where books are religion. What would have happened if the Library of Alexandria never burned down? That is the daydream of every hardcore book lover. This books give a very intriguing glimpse of what that world might have looked like. The Library controls all access to knowledge, protects all original copies, and shares that wealth of knowledge with the world “unbiasedly”, because of their control black market original books are very desirable. This is where we meet Jess who is the son of a predominant black market dealer. When his father finds out Jess doesn’t have the heart to take over the family business he sends him to school, this is where we learn he qualifies for tryouts for one of the worlds most Elite jobs in The Library. With a collection of others students they are put to the test, only 6 positions are available. The competition is cut throat as they delve deeper into the actual world of The Library. They make discoveries and start to question whether The Library truly stands for the greater good of humanity or for the papers they hold sacred. It took a little while to get back into the…
