Book Thoughts: Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

November 30, 2016

Full of action, exciting twists, and smooth writing, Empress of a Thousand Skies is a rousing debut by an author to watch. Everything from the descriptions to the alternating points of view work seamlessly together to create an evenly paced story with diverse characters who are as complex as they are endearing. Some twists I saw coming, but that didn’t make them any less satisfying. Now, when can I get…

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine  that showcases the books people are eagerly awaiting. *** My WoW pick this week is These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

February 5, 2013

For those of you who don’t know, Scarlet is the companion novel/sequel to Marissa Meyer’s debut Cinder. I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder, but when I found out the Scarlet would be a take on “Little Red Riding Hood”, I was ecstatic to read it. As a huge fan of “Little Red Riding Hood”, I was anxious to see how Ms. Meyer would interpret the tale and I am pleased to say…

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

October 16, 2012

Cinder has been on my Want-To-Read list for quite some time, but I only recently got around to reading it, which is rather sad because this book is stunning. Marissa Meyer has written an utterly enthralling take on the Cinderella story and has created a vivid, gloomy, and exciting world. Cinder makes for a great main character and her humor, intelligence, and strength made me fall in love with…

Review: Eden by Keary Taylor

July 5, 2011

It’s no secret I love Keary Taylor and her Fall of Angels series. In fact, I profess my love on Twitter all the time. No joke. When I found out Ms. Taylor was looking for bloggers to review her new dystopian novel, Eden, I immediately signed up. I know the YA market has been inundated with dystopian stories as of late, but I think readers will really enjoy Ms.…

January 13, 2011

I’ve been a bit of a nerd for a few years now and love watching Stargate Atlantis, Serenity, and the new Star Trek movie. So the whole space aspect of the book really appealed to me and thanks to a new…
