Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan – Review & Giveaway

Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan – Review & Giveaway

I honestly didn’t know what to expect with this book. The cover made it almost look like a fantasy to me, but the blurb made it relatively obvious that it wasn’t. I’m not much for suspense, and I didn’t know if this book would venture too far into that territory for me to love it. Still, I was definitely intrigued and I ended up requesting this one through Shelf Awareness and was excited when I […]

The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials Collector’s Edition Release! (Plus, a Review of The Maze Runner)

The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials Collector’s Edition Release! (Plus, a Review of The Maze Runner)

Today I’m reviewing The Maze Runner, which is included in the special collector’s edition that releases today. The collector’s edition also includes The Scorch Trials, but I haven’t finished that one yet, mostly because I had trouble prying the book out of my 12-year-old son’s hands (he literally hid it from me sometimes so that I couldn’t take it from him!). My review of The Scorch Trials half of the book will be coming in […]

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers – Review

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers – Review

I am a huge fan of this series! I’m so glad that I found it! The final book in the series focuses on Annith, who desperately wants to flee the “destiny” that the abbess has set before her – to become the new Seer. What I loved: Tangled webs. This book has the most twists and turns of any in the series. Annith discovers a lot about her own background in this book and we learn […]

Review – The 100 by Kass Morgan

Review – The 100 by Kass Morgan

I was a little late to the CW TV show. I just basically marathoned the entire first season and half of the second season over Christmas break. And, of course, after watching the show, I was curious to read the book that had started it all. I had heard that the book and the show were quite different, so I was prepared for that going in. There’s no Finn or Raven in the books, Wells […]

Review – The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

Review – The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

I have to say that I really sort of fell in love with this book. I went into it thinking that it was going to be a dystopian, and it really sort of is, except at the end, if you read the author’s notes, you’ll find that the book is based on a real life place – a place that actually existed. Make sure that you head over to this site to see pictures of Kowloon […]
