I Finished Two Series! Bite-Sized Reviews of Silver Shadows & The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead and MILA 2.0: Redemption by Debra Driza

I Finished Two Series! Bite-Sized Reviews of Silver Shadows & The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead and MILA 2.0: Redemption by Debra Driza

Reviews 11

Look at me!! I managed to finish not one but two series that I was behind on! This has to be some sort of record for me!! I know the rest of the world read these long ago, but I figure all three of these books deserve at least a bite-sized review. I hope these bite-sized reviews will give you enough of a taste to feed your fiction addiction! I know I truly love this series because it’s been three years since I read The Fiery Heart, and it didn’t take me any time at all to remember what was going on or to reconnect with my favorite characters. That’s honestly saying a lot because lately my brain is a sieve and I’m lucky if I can remember what went on in a previous book in a series for a few months, much less three years! This book picks up with… Read more »

Review of the eStories Platform & Books 1&2 of the Kingfountain Series by Jeff Wheeler

Review of the eStories Platform & Books 1&2 of the Kingfountain Series by Jeff Wheeler

Reviews 10

I was recently contacted by eStories to try out their service and get an audiobook for free. eStories is similar to Audible (but a bit cheaper). I hadn’t heard of the service before, but I checked out their site and they have a fantastic collection of books available, so I decided to give it a try. I ended up picking up the second book in Jeff Wheeler’s Kingfountain Series since I’d already listened to the first but hadn’t been able to get my hands on the second yet (I’d been hoping the library would carry it, but no such luck). Before I review the books, here are a few thoughts on my experience with eStories: Big selection – I was very happy with the selection of audiobooks at eStories. They have all of the books in the Kingfountain Series, plus many other books that I’m interested in listening to (when I clicked on… Read more »

Bite-Sized Reviews of the Rest of the Books I Read in 2016 (Including The Beauty of Darkness and Glass Sword)

Bite-Sized Reviews of the Rest of the Books I Read in 2016 (Including The Beauty of Darkness and Glass Sword)

Reviews 12

Okay, so I might be exaggerating a little bit with that title—I’m not actually reviewing all of the rest of the books I read in 2016, but I am reviewing most of them. The only holdouts are a couple of books that I plan to review along with future books in the series and a couple that are releasing next week (which I’ll review then). Oh, and I’m still reading and the month isn’t quite over, so … Anyway, hopefully these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! This was everything I was hoping for in a series finale. Even though the romance was rocky (and I was very scared for Rafe and Lia), it seemed realistic. After all, these two both had a strong sense of responsibility for their kingdoms (and Lia for Venda as well because of the prophecy). This put them at odds sometimes because it was… Read more »

Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin: Review (Plus Bonus Review of Iron to Iron)

Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin: Review (Plus Bonus Review of Iron to Iron)

Reviews 9 ★★★★★

***NOTE: This review is for the second book in the series but doesn’t contain any major spoilers for the first book. To read my review of Wolf by Wolf, click the link!*** I was so excited to read the conclusion to this unique duology since I had absolutely LOVED the first book. The WWII era fascinates me, in all its darkness, and these books offer an intriguing paranormal alternate history. What Fed My Addiction: Multiple POVs and Flashbacks. In this book, we get Felix’s, Luka’s and Yael’s POVs, which isa nice change. We get to see what was going through all of these characters’ heads and what has led them to these points—Yael, who is fighting against the Nazis, Luka, who has always played it safe and gone along with the Reich because it was easier, and Felix, who puts his family before everything else in the world. We also get flashbacks… Read more »

The Copper Gauntlet and The Bronze Key by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare – Bite-Sized Reviews

The Copper Gauntlet and The Bronze Key by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare – Bite-Sized Reviews

Middle Grade, Reviews 4 ★★★★

***NOTE: This review is for the second and third books in a series and may contain spoilers for the first book. To read my thoughts on The Iron Trial (the first book), click HERE.*** I had to catch up on this series when I saw that the latest was coming out (the third out of five listed on Goodreads). Both my son and I really enjoyed the first book. He said that it had all of the best qualities from his favorite series, which was high praise from him. I was a little nervous since it had been a long time since I’d read book one (we’d picked up book two at a Scholastic book fair, but we hadn’t gotten to it yet), but I picked the story back up really easily—there were plenty of reminders, which is especially nice for a middle grade book. Read on for my thoughts …… 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 »

The Daydreamer Detective by S.J. Pajonas – Review (Plus Bite-Sized Reviews of Her Short Stories)

The Daydreamer Detective by S.J. Pajonas – Review (Plus Bite-Sized Reviews of Her Short Stories)

Reviews 6 ★★★★

I don’t really read Cozy Mysteries, but when I heard that Pajonas was writing one, I knew that I’d be jumping into the genre – I’ll pretty much read anything Pajonas writes because I LOVE the Japanese culture that she infuses into her bo0ks. Anyone out there who’s looking for diverse books for a challenge (or just because) should check out hers! (Here’s a list of Pajonas’s books I’ve reviewed, which is most of them.) This book followed Mei, whose life is at a bit of a crossroads. She’s lost (another) job and has to move back home with her mother to work on their farm in a small Japanese village. She’s not thrilled at the prospect. But once she gets there, she finds that things are not as boring as she imagined they’d be. First off, her best friend’s father is murdered, and Mei makes it her mission to find… Read more »

Bite-Sized Reviews – Romancing the Nerd, Tuck Everlasting, Island of the Blue Dolphins

Reviews 12 ★★★½

A few quick reviews of some books that deserve attention. Hopefully these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! Romancing the Nerd by Leah Rae Miller Series: Nerd #2 Published by Entangled Teen on 4/5/16 Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance Pages: 352 Source: NetGalley My content rating: YA (Nothing more than kissing) My rating: Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing (LARP) geek on the lowest run of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voila…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird. And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl-of-his-dorky dreams. A tuba-playing nerd with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “Coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at… Read more »
