Slavery, Forbidden Romance and a Great Heroine: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

Ah, YA Fantasy.  It's been known that I struggle with YA Fantasy. I keep comparing it to Adult Fantasy and in comparison, YA stands no chance. But still, I keep picking up YA Fantasies left, right and center, in search for one that will blow me away and come close to some of my beloved… Continue reading Slavery, Forbidden Romance and a Great Heroine: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

Fandom, Online Communities and a Bit of Awkwardness: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Another book that left me feeling confused. I am sure all of you have heard of Eliza and Her Monsters. It was one of the biggest YA releases of last year and everyone and their mother absolutely loved it. It was compared to Fangirl (one of my faves) and a lot of people related to… Continue reading Fandom, Online Communities and a Bit of Awkwardness: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Coming Out, Oreos and a Whole Lot of Love: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

It's been a while since a book made me feel this good.  I haven't read a YA Contemporary in so long, so I was a tad hesitant to pick up Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. However, all my blogging friends were so excited for the movie and kept saying I should read it. Plus, I… Continue reading Coming Out, Oreos and a Whole Lot of Love: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Flat Characters, Clunky World Building and a Somewhat Fulfilled Promise of Dragons: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

This book checks all the reasons I hate YA Fantasy.  I wrote about this one in one of my Judging Books By Their Covers post (pretty sure it was October) and when I heard it was about dragons, I immediately wanted to read it. We don't see a lot of dragons, which is confusing, because… Continue reading Flat Characters, Clunky World Building and a Somewhat Fulfilled Promise of Dragons: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

Owls, Miracles and the Radio: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

"Here is a thing everyone wants: A miracle. Here is a thing everyone fears: What it takes to get one." As you all know by now, I am a huge Maggie Stiefvater fan. She is one of my favorite authors of all time, and I think her writing is gorgeous. So you can imagine that… Continue reading Owls, Miracles and the Radio: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

#TRC August Final Wrap Up: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater Spoilery Discussion

Depending on where you began the story, it was about... So #TRCAugust finally comes to an end. I have to say, I absolutely loved revisiting the series. Back when The Raven King came out, I simply devoured it in two days and I felt like I read it too quickly. So this time, I took… Continue reading #TRC August Final Wrap Up: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater Spoilery Discussion

#TRCAugust Week Three Wrap Up: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater Spoilery Discussion

Another day, another Raven Cycle post. I massively failed and I am really behind on my reread schedule. I should have finished The Raven King already, but I haven't even started. So #TRCAugust is going to take up a week of September as well, but sometimes life just gets in the way. Anyway, you already… Continue reading #TRCAugust Week Three Wrap Up: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater Spoilery Discussion
