Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin – Review

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin – Review

Wolf by Wolf is alternate history with a paranormal twist. The book asks the question, What if Hitler had won WWII – a question that’s been asked before – but it’s told from the perspective of a shapeshifting Jewish girl (who is turned into a shapeshifter due to a doctor’s experimentation on her in one of the concentration camps). Yael can take on other people’s features, and because of that, she is chosen by the resistance […]

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 […]

ARC Review – The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

ARC Review – The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

This was my first Holly Black book, and I’m starting to see what all the fuss is about. Black has an amazing ability to create a fantastical world and tie it into our own – I loved how the fae world collided with the “real” world in this book! What I LOVED: The small town feel mixed with magic. I loved how Black managed to take this realistic-feeling small town and turn it into something extraordinary. Fairfold […]

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 […]
