Shinji Takahashi and the Mark of the Coatl by Julie Kagawa: Review & Giveaway

Shinji Takahashi and the Mark of the Coatl by Julie Kagawa: Review & Giveaway

Amazon, Kindle, Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD I’m a huge fan of Kagawa’s YA books, so I was excited to see what her MG has to offer, and I was definitely not disappointed. Apparently this book is a spin-off of existing Society of Explorers and Adventurers lore that you can find in the actual Disney theme parks. I didn’t know anything about that storytelling, but that didn’t lessen my enjoyment of the book (and I’m actually headed […]

In Every Generation by Kendare Blake: Review & Giveaway

In Every Generation by Kendare Blake: Review & Giveaway

Goodreads, Amazon, Kindle,  Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD In Every Generation made my Buffy-obsessed heart so incredibly happy! I’m not even going to try to review the book without taking the original series into account because, for me, that’s impossible. Do I think that non-Buffy fans will enjoy the book on its own merits? Yes. But you’ll have to read other reviews for that perspective because I loved everything about the show. Anyway, this is my perspective as a fan. […]

Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan: Review & Giveaway

Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan: Review & Giveaway

Amazon, Kindle, B&N Exclusive Edition, iBooks, Kobo, TBD Daughter of the Deep brings the reader on a sci-fi undersea adventure, full of danger, intrigue, and family secrets. I love that Riordan has embraced diversity in his recent books. This one features an Indian-American main character, a Black Mormon secondary character, and an autistic secondary character. I felt like the autistic rep was especially good because it showed Ester’s autistic traits in a truly positive light and […]

Amazon, Kindle, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD This fun graphic novel is zany and kooky and never takes itself too seriously. The story follows Wendy who takes advantage of her overprotective father’s absence to see a bit of the world (well, her town). Along the way, she gives a squirrel a sugary drink and he ends up going on a rampage of sorts and destroying the town. Wendy must find a way to put things back together before […]
