Review: Malcolm’s Journal

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 to identify with, but would… Read more (more…)

Review: Pittacus Lore Transmissions

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.

I like the… Read more (more…)

Review: The Healer’s Apprentice

The Healer’s Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Bad beginning, better middle, extremely obvious ending… But overall fun to read once you get in to the story somewhat. Although, it was very easy to guess where they were going from very early on. The mystery of the thing was ruined immediately and the villain was only… Read more (more…)
