Bite-Sized Reviews of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Instant Karma, Inkling, and Kingdom of Secrets

Today, I’m reviewing an adult contemporary/historical fantasy (Surprise! I don’t review adult books here on the blog often), a YA and a MG contemporary fantasy, and a MG steampunk fantasy. I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! I know I don’t review many adult books here on the blog anymore, but I couldn’t resist mentioning this one. And since so many of my YA blogger friends read V.E. Schwab, […]

Today, I have a YA fantasy, a YA contempory, a YA urban fantasy, and a MG contemp series! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction!

Bite-Sized Reviews of Admission, Meow or Never, The Canyon’s Edge, and You Have a Match

Today, I have two YA contemps and two MG contemps (one in verse!) I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! Let’s face it, we were all more than a little fascinated when […]

The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson: A Dual Review with Marilla

The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson: A Dual Review with Marilla

(No actual dueling—or even arm-twisting—was involved. This is a dual review, not a duel review. Sorry if you’re disappointed.) Marilla was a recent winner of my Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up “Make Me Read It” giveaway, and she chose to make me read The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson. I got this book as a gift at an event I went to featuring Johnson’s agent, Sara Megibow (I learned LOTS about the business side of publishing […]

Amelia Fang Series by Laura Ellen Anderson: An Adorably Creepy Middle Grade Fantasy

Amelia Fang Series by Laura Ellen Anderson: An Adorably Creepy Middle Grade Fantasy

These books are so incredibly adorable! I just wanted to stare and stare at the illustrations all day long, and the story matched them pretty much perfectly. The series is a truly delightful concoction of creepiness and cuteness! The Goodreads description says that these books are written for reluctant readers, and I can see how they’d be perfect for that group. They feature short chapters and plenty of wonderfully quirky illustrations so the books don’t […]

Storm Blown by Nick Courage: Review of an Epic Adventure!

Storm Blown by Nick Courage: Review of an Epic Adventure!

A gripping, disaster-filled adventure of epic proportions, this MG book will certainly blow you away! What Fed My Addiction: Realistic storm experiences. In the author’s note, you find that Nick Courage grew up in New Orleans, so he grew up with tropical storms and hurricanes. That shows in the book. The storm itself is so vivid, it almost feels like a character. And the build from calm (where many characters assumed the storm wasn’t really […]

Hope and Other Punchlines by Julie Buxbaum: Review & Giveaway

Hope and Other Punchlines by Julie Buxbaum: Review & Giveaway

Buxbaum is a genius at contemporary storytelling, and this book is no exception. She manages to pack so much into 300 pages without ever making it feel overwrought or unrealistic. You would be hard-pressed to read this book and not come out of the experience thinking about 9/11 differently. What Fed My Addiction: Opposing goals. Abbi wants to move on with her life and get past the one thing that has always defined her. She […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Song for a Whale, A Friendly Town That’s Almost Always by the Ocean, The Color of Lies, and The Lunar Chronicles

I’ve got four reviews for you today: two Middle Grades, a YA, and a YA series . I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! This is one of those books that takes you into the heart and mind of a character whose experiences you might not be able to completely relate to—and you come out all the richer for it in the end. The story focuses on Iris, a […]

Otherworld by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller: Review & Giveaway

Otherworld by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller: Review & Giveaway

If you’ve ever tried virtual reality, you can probably imagine how advanced it might be in the future—how we might be able to practically live in it someday. What if it got to the point where you could actually taste and smell and truly feel everything within the game? Would it still be a game, or would it be reality? What Fed My Addiction: Simon. Simon feels like a realistic teenager—he isn’t perfect (by any means). […]

Bite-Sized Reviews Audiobook Edition: Midnight Jewel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, and Of Beast and Beauty

I’ve got bite-sized reviews of some of the audiobooks I’ve been listening to lately. I truly love my library (or, technically, most of these came from my mom’s library). If you have access to Axis 360, I highly recommend you check it out—they have a fantastic selection of audiobooks! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! One thing to know going into this book is that it takes place concurrently with […]
