Book Review: Enchantress (Everman Saga #1)

Book Review: Enchantress (Everman Saga #1)

Imagine my excitement when I found that I could borrow Enchantress from Amazon for free! Unfortunately, you often get what you pay for. After slogging through this book for a couple of hours, I decided not to finish it. I am a firm believer in finishing what I start, so it is a testament to how boring I found Enchantress that I put the novel down.   I was unable to […]

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

  I was intrigued by the cover of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children multiple times before finally picking the novel up from the library.

But what I most enjoyed about the book was the relationship between main character Kylar […]

Why do people worship it? And why go on a pilgrimage to confront something referred to as the “God of Pain?” Just what was the Shrike’s plan—to save the world or to destroy it? Those […]

Book Review: Gilded

Book Review: Gilded

I was very disappointed by Gilded. I was excited to read a book that took place in Seoul, being a huge fan of all things Korean. Though Farley does a good job of immersing the reader in Korean culture through main character Jae Hwa, who has just moved there from L.A., her writing is often immature and nonsensical. Plus, Jae Hwa, who is supposed to be a kickass heroine, complete […]
