I’m really disappointed that I didn’t love The City of Brass like I wanted to. It was such a cool setting and the main character was pretty great, but sadly I think information overload weighed me down and massively affected my enjoyment of the book.
I don’t normally like time travel books, but I actually loved Invictus!
What I liked: Very cool setting! It starts in London and moves to Hungary. Plus we see a few other places along the way (Austria). It was really interesting how magic was intertwined with the class system. The rich get magic, the poor do not. […]
I may have exaggerated a little. It’s not that none of my friends loved Legacy of Kings, but the vast majority gave it three stars or less, which to me ranges from “I didn’t like it” to “it was only okay”. But I loved it! […]
I absolutely ADORED this book! Forbidden is one of the most unique books I’ve read in a while. I think the words Mesopotamian, desert, tribe, and dancing say it all. When’s the last time you read a young adult book that involved those?? The overall […]

As much as I enjoyed The Winner’s Curse, it didn’t completely blow my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I thought it was a very good book, but I didn’t think it was ZOMG SO FREAKING UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING!!! I think I just expected a bit more […]
I have to admit, the first half of Rebel Spring bored me. It wasn’t horrible, but I wasn’t excited about it. My lack of interest and enthusiasm was clear, and I had forgotten a lot of what happened in Falling Kingdoms, which didn’t help things. […]
It took me about a million years to read Inferno because most of it was just so darn boring. For the first half of the book, the problem is that Robert and Sienna (his female companion for most of the book) are running away from […]
Astarte’s Wrath is perfect for any huge Egyptian mythology buffs. Riddled with war, chaos, history, and mythology, this book is intense, full of action, and tragic. It takes place during the Battle of Actium (between Octavian of Rome and Cleopatara of Egypt) so it’s safe […]
