Book Review : The Luminaries

Book Review : The Luminaries

When I saw that Susan Dennard, author of one of my few favorite young adult series The Witchlands, had a spooky new book releasing, I knew I had to read it. Though I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last book I read by the author, Witchshadow, I found The Luminaries to be a really enjoyable and fluffy read. Though it’s easy to see where the series is going, and […]

Book Review : Witchshadow

Book Review : Witchshadow

It pains me to admit this, but Witchshadow was my least favorite of all the books in The Witchlands series so far.

Book Review: The Stolen Kingdom

Book Review: The Stolen Kingdom

The Stolen Kingdom is a pretty simple fantasy story for younger readers. Unfortunately, I found it  too simple for my liking, the character development a bit odd, even disturbing in one particular case, and the world-building quite weak. I also fervently wished the writing style had less telling and more showing. I also couldn’t help but notice that a lot of the plot lines seemed very similar to other very […]
