The Book Thief

As I completed the last words in this book, I just sat for a few minutes. That’s always been the power of great books, they force you to think and reflect on everything. Continue reading “The Book Thief”

Six of Crows

Six of Crows is set in the world of Grisha, which may be familiar to those that have read the Grisha trilogy. I haven’t read the trilogy yet, so I was afraid that I would be a bit confused but I wasn’t at all.  Continue reading “Six of Crows”

The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave has taken residency on my shelf for over a year now and I’m not sure why I didn’t read it sooner as I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the perfect combination of dystopian world, extra-terrestrial creatures, sassy characters, and unexpected plot twists that me love this book. I’m ecstatic to read the sequel to this heart-pounding novel. Continue reading “The 5th Wave”

hotel-valhalla-guide-to-the-nine-worlds

Another entertaining read from the mind of Rick Riordan. This book is perfect for those of you who want a little more background information on Norse Mythology, but don’t really know where to start. I love that instead of retelling popular myths, Riordan gives out stats on each of the prominent figures and then has either an interview or a character that was actually present for the myth tell the story. Continue reading “For Magnus Chase: Hotel Valhalla Guide to the Norse Worlds”

And I always wanted to take a class on it but my schedule never allowed for it. So when I saw Edith Hamilton’s Mythology chilling on a bookshelf. I had to buy it and begin reading immediately.
