Scarlet

I’m not even sure where to begin because there’s just so much I love Scarlet. I read reviews saying Scarlet was better than Cinder, but I was skeptical. How do you get better than something I already pretty much consider one of the best? I’, still not sure how exactly that happens, but it did. Continue reading “Scarlet”

Nowhere But Here

nowhere but here

I have read and fell in love with Katie McGarry since she came out with her Pushing the Limits series. I knew when i was able to buy this book that I was not going to be disappointed by it and I knew that I wanted to start right away, and I was shocked. Continue reading “Nowhere But Here”

The Beauty and the Beast

beauty and the beast

Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s The Beauty and the Beast is the earliest known version of the tale and it is probably very different from what you might expect. The length of the novel, it covers the fortunes of the merchant and his six sons and six daughters. the backstory of the Beast and his kingdom, the histories of a few neighboring kingdoms, and the politics and magic of the Fairies who travel the world doing good deeds. At times it feels convoluted and at other times a little dated. Still, fans of the story will enjoy reading its first appearance. Continue reading “The Beauty and the Beast”

Gemina

gemina

First of all the plot stays true to what Kaufman and Kristoff did in Illuminae in which case I mean it’s full of action and death mostly. However, I felt like the plot could used more suspense and that survival feel that we saw in the first book. I didn’t feel as thrilled as I did during ┬áIlluminae my adrenaline wasn’t pumping as much. Remember all the insane plot twists in Illuminae? Didn’t really see them in Gemina. There were few that I enjoyed but for the most part they were either not great or a little bit predictable. Continue reading “Gemina”

Norse Mythology

norse mythology

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved the Greek myths. What began as a school assignment quickly turned into a passion as I began to learn more and more about the classical world. I dabbled a little in other mythologies (mostly Egyptians and Romans), but as far as I was concerned, nothing could match the beauty of the Greek stories. Continue reading “Norse Mythology”

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

the unbecoming of mara dyer

This is probably the best example of wasted potential I’ve seen in a book. The massive problem this book had was pacing. For the grand majority of the book NOTHING happened. The editor should’ve gone John Bender on this manuscript. Continue reading “The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer”
