  This is a tag I got from the lovely Drinking by my Shelf. The fun thing about this tag is that we all create new questions with every video. Here are our 10 new questions: 1) What thing have you purchased just because it related to a book you love? 2) If you could burn one book which would it be? 3) What book got you into reading? 4) What strange way have you utilized a book in a non-reading capacity? 5) How often do you clean out your ...

Let’s talk about all 3 books in 90 seconds! Good thing Nora Roberts writes books that are similar enough to cover quickly. Not my favorite of her trilogies, but still entertaining.

Atticus is at it again. This being the 7th book in the series, there has been a lot of set up leading to this. Granuaile is a fully developed Druid. Owen is trying to figure out what he has missed over the last thousand years. Atticus is trying to deal with the fae courts. Havoc ensues, snarky comments are made, feet are firmly in mouth, and the whole gang end up with a fight that no one was expecting. This time the book takes a look...

When the one sister that she actually gets along with and supports her all of a sudden comes down with a deadly plague, would you do what Cinder does?

Review: The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan
Reviews / March 9, 2016

This is the first book that I have read by Rick Riordan. Rick is a very prolific mid-grade to young adult writer and I have enjoyed every new series I pick up from him.   Since Greek mythology is my first love when it comes to ancient mythos it makes sense that I started with this book. I did happen to see the movie before I knew the book existed, so it slightly ruined some of the surprise parts. This was a quick Mid-grade read....

Review: Sunshine by Robin McKinley
Reviews / February 28, 2016

This is my first video I ever posted. Even though I was not super thrilled with it as a whole, there were new ideas that I wish she would have elaborated on even more. I was really intrigued in the world she created and would love it if she made another book in that same place.

Review: Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
Reviews / February 8, 2016

Quick and fun. A little chaotic at times, but what else would you expect in Wonderland. This is a retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland story.

It brings in your favorite characters like Hatter, the card soldiers, the caterpillars, and the Redd Queen. The telling does seem a bit jumbled at times, with i...
