Review: Red Queen

December 9, 2016

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book surprised me quite a bit. As young adult books go, the romance love triangle is usually top priority for the plot. This book feels as though it dangles the triangle out there, then totally gets off track and becomes an amazing story […]


Review: An Idiot Abroad

November 23, 2016

An Idiot Abroad by Karl Pilkington My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book was like watching a documentary you’ve already seen. Not un-entertaining if you enjoyed it the first time, but more like a rerun than I was expecting. An Idiot Abroad (the reality show) is one of those comfort shows for me. I […]


Can’t Believe I read the whole California Driver Handbook…

September 27, 2016

California Driver Handbook (2016 edition) by Department of Motor Vehicles My rating: 2 of 5 stars Reading a book (or manual) like this is not fun and can be pretty boring. Of course, I read it cover to cover to be sure that I knew if any laws had changed since I am required to take […]


Gave Up Reading: The Shadow of the Wind

September 22, 2016

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón My rating: 2 of 5 stars Sadly, I think its time to call it. I really had high hopes for this book. Based on recommendations, and praise, I really thought I would be able to dive right in and love every word. But sadly, I have […]


Review: Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

September 22, 2016

Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by J.K. Rowling My rating: 5 of 5 stars I love all of the stories that add to the wealth of wizarding lore. This is no different. And, being an American, it was very cool to read about the story of Ilvermorny School since I would have surely gone […]


Review: The Name of the Wind

August 23, 2016

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss My rating: 5 of 5 stars I enjoyed this book immensely. The character Kvothe is the perfect character. He is the character I want every book to be about. The qualities embedded within his core make me want to know him, understand him, talk to him, bed […]


Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

August 1, 2016

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling My rating: 5 of 5 stars I can’t believe we’ve been given the amazing opportunity to see how our favorite characters turned out. To see them amidts another great adventure. It feels like all the revivals that Netflix has been giving us with X-Files, and with […]


Review: Malcolm’s Journal

June 29, 2016

Malcolm’s Journal by Pittacus Lore My rating: 3 of 5 stars Another interesting addition to the story. Malcolm’s return is pretty huge for Sam’s story. I am really happy for him in this. It makes me sad that they had some much time separated from one another, though. An awkward boy who has no one […]


Review: The Scar

June 29, 2016

The Scar by Pittacus Lore My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is a really sad, very interesting blurb from Six’s perspective of Chapter Thirty-Four of The Fall of Five. Really unnecessary if you aren’t currently reading Fall of Five… but since I read it ages ago, I searched the dialog in my Kindle until […]


Review: Sam’s Journal

June 29, 2016

Sam’s Journal by Pittacus Lore My rating: 3 of 5 stars Hmm. Sam makes me sad. I see myself in him quite a bit though. The way he has a hard time actually making friends is a biggy. He is awkward, and he is well aware that no one wants to hear about his current […]


Review: Pittacus Lore Transmissions

June 29, 2016

Pittacus Lore Transmissions by Pittacus Lore My rating: 3 of 5 stars I love the little additions to the Lorien Legacies story here and there that the author provides. This was a good appendix to the main characters. Particularly, I am glad to find out that the Lumin has yet untapped ability and that Lorien […]


Review: The Island of Doctor Moreau

June 22, 2016

The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G. Wells My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book was wonderfully sorrowful. I thoroughly enjoyed the way that the story explored the way that fear turns to sadness and empathy turns to repulsion. This story is wrought with scientific impossibilities but that is not really the point and […]


Review: Maximum Ride, Manga Vol. 1

May 23, 2016

Maximum Ride, Vol. 1 by James Patterson My rating: 3 of 5 stars This was fun! I have read comics before but never a graphic-novel version of a book I’ve read! It was neat to see the artist dipiction of each scene and of the characters. Fang’s hair is super long and flowy… so unlike […]
