Review: Heartwood Box by Ann Aguirre

Heartwood Box is the newest novel by Ann Aguirre, and it is an amazing blend of different genres. It’s young adult, and has romance, supernatural, and science fiction elements as well. It’s a time travel tale, but also a tale of a teenage girl trying to do what is right. And it’s so amazingly dark and brilliant. Continue reading

Review and Q&A: The Saturday Night Ghost Club by Craig Davidson

The Saturday Night Ghost Club is a unique blending of genres, perfect for fans of the supernatural and coming of age themes. It doesn’t fit perfectly into either category, though it pulls elements from both. The end result is something heartwarming, bone-chilling, and everything in between. Continue reading

Review: Wanderers by Chuck Wendig

Wanderers is the latest novel by Chuck Wendig, and it’s been getting a lot of attention. Before the novel was even out people were fighting over the rights to adapt the novel into a series. Which is pretty huge (QC Entertainment won the rights, for those that are curious). And honestly, this novel will adapt well to a series, so I’m looking forward to seeing it. Continue reading

Review: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a brilliant and sometimes heartbreaking read. It probably had so much more impact due to the fact that it’s based on a true story, well, sort of. It’s inspired by real people, and a real career (the book women – librarians who would deliver books to locations too far and small for their own library). Continue reading

Blog Tour & Book Review: Bright Burning Stars by A.K. Small

Bright Burning Stars is the debut novel by A.J. Small. The novel is a tale set in a French ballet school, and understandably it has a lot of the plot devices we’d hope and expect for it. But it’s more than that as well. It’s a coming of age story, a story where one has to learn what is best for them, and of course the story of the hardship dancers can come across while in training. Continue reading

Review: La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust #1) by Philip Pullman

Okay, so first of all, I swear I already wrote a review for this book, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. So here I am. If I end up coming off at frustrating at all, it’s simply because I feel like I’m repeating myself. Continue reading

Review: #Fashionvictim by Amina Akhtar

The novel is Amina Akhtar’s debut novel, and fortunately for her it made it onto the BOTM options – something that I’m sure helped it gain more attention. The novel itself is about the fashion industry. Not so much the designing elements of it, but the print elements. Think of the Devil Wears Prada, only with some unhealthy obsessions about fashion heroes. Continue reading

Review: Bluff by Jane Stanton Hitchcock

Bluff has got to be one of the most unique combinations I’ve seen in quite some time. It’s a thriller heavily influenced by poker and card games. That may sound a bit odd, but it actually worked really well. Continue reading
