Review: ‘Gorgeous’ by Paul Rudnick

I sort of tripped over this book while researching books to read this summer. Though I wasn’t familiar with Mr. Rudnick’s YA work, many authors and bloggers were and found him to be hilarious. What I found was something that I don’t... Read More | Share it now!

Review: ‘Bad Magic’ by Pseudonymous Bosch

I must confess. I have had this book forever. OK, that’s stretching the truth a little bit, but I received this book back in July of 2014. Then, as it happens sometimes, it fell off of my e-reader. So when I was trying to catch up with my... Read More | Share it now!

Mostly ghostly ~ ‘Sisters of Blood and Spirit’ by Kady Cross #Review #COYER

I seem to be on a roll, reading books where bad things happen in asylums… Lark Noble is used to everyone thinking she’s crazy. Not that it doesn’t hurt, especially now that she’s back in her hometown after a stay at a mental... Read More | Share it now!

And Tomorrow? ~ ‘All Our Yesterdays’ by Cristin Terrill #Review #COYER

I started this book quite a while ago, and for some reason, it got lost in the shuffle and never finished. Boy, am I glad I circled back around to it. Em is locked in a cell. She has no idea how long she’s been there. Maybe a few months? The next... Read More | Share it now!

You’ll find no ‘Asylum’ here ~ by Madeleine Roux #Review #Coyer

Much like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Asylum has a cover that’s meant to creep you out. What’s worse is that the photo there, as well as the many inside, are real. Daniel Crawford is excited for his... Read More | Share it now!
