The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron – An Unforgettable All-Time Favorite!

The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron – An Unforgettable All-Time Favorite!

All-Time Favorites, Reviews 22 ★★★★★

This book. I LOVED this book! I was in a serious reading funk when I started reading The Forgetting—not a slump because I had actually read a couple of really good books, but nothing that truly excited me. Nothing that gripped me from the very beginning and made me super eager to pick up my book anytime I was forced to put it down. The Forgetting was that book for me. I actually went into it with relatively low expectations because my mom read the book first and she was going to write a review for me, but she kept forgetting about it. (Literally. We laughed several times because she’d be like, “What book did I read that you wanted me to review?” and I’d laugh and say, “The Forgetting!”) But I honestly don’t know how she could forget it because I definitely couldn’t! (She later told me that she wasn’t… Read more »

The Sin Eater’s Daughter and The Sleeping Prince by Melinda Salisbury – Bite-Sized Reviews

The Sin Eater’s Daughter and The Sleeping Prince by Melinda Salisbury – Bite-Sized Reviews

Reviews 9 ★★★½

When I saw that The Sin Eater’s Daughter was available via the SYNC audiobook program this summer, I immediately jumped at the chance to listen. It’s been on my TBR for quite awhile. While it wasn’t perfect, I was definitely eager to move on to the second book – luckily, it was available via Edelweiss and I was able to jump right in! I actually really loved the second book, and I even felt like some things that happened in book two helped me appreciate the first book more. Now I’m just wishing I could get my hands on the next one!!

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – A Whimsical Review

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – A Whimsical Review

Reviews 16 ★★★★½

Okay, I lied. My actual review for this book probably isn’t going to be all that whimsical, but the book itself certainly is! This is an ADORABLE middle grade read, filled with colorful descriptions of magical happenings and set in the topsy-turvy, sometimes baffling world of Furthermore.   What Fed My Addiction: Furthermore. If you read the blurb of this book, you will know exactly what to expect. Not only does it do a fantastic job of describing the plot, it sets the tone for the book. Just reading the description of Furthermore makes me smile – and I was grinning pretty much the entire time as I read about Alice’s journey through the peculiar land. It is just as odd as it sounds in the blurb – and that’s what makes it wonderful! I never knew what to expect next. Neither did Alice. I loved that the journey through Furthermore was dangerous and thrilling, but… Read more »

Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall by Aaron Safronoff – Review & Giveaway

Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall by Aaron Safronoff – Review & Giveaway

Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 10 ★★★★

Sunborn Rising is a fantasy of truly epic proportions – it may feature characters in roughly the middle grade/young adult age range, but it will appeal to fantasy lovers of all ages! The story follows Barra and her two best friends, Plicks and Tory. They find out about a threat to their world via Barra’s father’s journals and decide to try to gather evidence on their own (when some of the adults in their community don’t seem to want to admit that something might be wrong). But the three bups (basically a word for young ones) end up in deeper danger than they ever imagined when their explorations lead to their downfall – literally. Below their world, they find a vast, strange land filled with both peril and unimaginable beauty – but they have to get home if they ever hope to share it.

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye – ARC Review (AKA You Should Read This Book)

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye – ARC Review (AKA You Should Read This Book)

Reviews 26 ★★★★½

I’ve already featured this book once on the blog (check out my Bookish Backdrop filled with Russian opulence if you missed it) and told you how much I adored the book, but now that the release date is getting closer I thought it was only fair to give you a full review and expound on the reasons I loved it! After all, you can’t just trust my babbling, nonsensical words of affirmation – you need cold, hard facts! (Or, well, opinions … since that’s what they are, no matter how much I think I’m right.) To start off, I have to tell you that I had very high expectations for this book. I fell in love with Evelyn’s writing two years ago when I read her short story in an anthology – I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since. I’ve been anxiously awaiting something more from her ever since…. Read more »

Dual Review – Soundless by Richelle Mead

Dual Review – Soundless by Richelle Mead

Reviews 25 ★★★★

Welcome to our first dual review here at Feed Your Fiction Addiction! My mom and I are both going to share our thoughts on the book Soundless. Hopefully you’ll enjoy getting two different perspectives! The Story This is the first time I have written a review and I’m both excited and a little overwhelmed. This book is about a village of people who are all deaf. They have no idea why their community has been totally deaf for generations. They live on the top of a mountain cut off from the rest of the world. Rock slides have blocked their paths off the mountaintop and there is no fertile ground so they have no resources for food. They survive by mining and sending the precious metals down to the village below via a zipline in return for small amounts of food, barely enough to survive. There are three jobs:  Artist, Miner… Read more »
