Book Review : The Iron Widow

Book Review : The Iron Widow

Hearing the hype about Iron Widow, and loving the idea of the story, which marketing boldly proclaimed is Pacific Rim meets A Handmaid’s Tale, I picked up this young adult novel. To put it bluntly, Iron Widow, and books like it, are the very reason I have mostly stopped reading young adult novels. In a nutshell, Iron Widow reads worse than some Wattpad stories, and despite having a good core […]

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

I absolutely love Sorcery of Thorns and it is one of my all time favorite books. Even with this second reading of the novel, I adore the setting, the magic system, the three main characters, the romance, the humor, and the plot.

Book Review : Fangirl

Book Review : Fangirl

As a person who has been a part of countless “fandoms” over the years—Naruto, Final Fantasy, Star Wars, Harry Potter—you name it, I’ve been in it—and is no stranger to Tumblr, Fan fiction, love triangle debates, and more, I was super excited to read “Fangirl.”  I have never read—or even heard of—any book that involved “fandom” life and the hole it leaves in a fan’s life when the book, movie, […]
