Of Poseidon by Anna Banks is so good. I can’t believe it took me so long to read this book. Emma is such a snarky main character; and I absolutely loved every bit of it. She is a girl after my own heart. The world building is so good. I felt like I really understood the Syrena Kingdom, rules, society, and people. Banks really creates a world that you can get lost in. Galen and Emma are the perfect point of views. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters. Galen and Emma’s interactions provide plenty of entertainment. Emma learns […]

A friend of mine recently asked me to read The Black Witch by Laurie Forest. I tend to have different opinions than others and she was curious what I would think with all the drama that is going on. Before you continue to read, please know that this review is my opinion and my thoughts. If you don’t like it, then you are welcome to stop reading. I think each person can have their own opinions and thoughts and shouldn’t have to be afraid of everyone else. I think The Black Witch is a very thought out story about the […]

Review: Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor is amazing. When Sunny’s family moved away from the United States to their native Nigeria, she was nine years old. Now 12 year old Sunny is an outsider among her classmates. Sunny is constantly bullied by other kids because of the fact that she was born in America and she is an albino. When Sunny sees a vision of the world’s future, she learns that she is a Leopard, or a person that has magical abilities. This starts Sunny’s journey and the reader is in for an incredible ride.

Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson is so incredibly good. I can’t believe it took me so long to dive into this amazing sequel. Carson brings back her amazing characters and story line.

Review: Now I Rise by Kiesten White is phenomenal. This retelling of Vlad the Impaler as Lada is amazing. I love how Lada is just like Vlad in being mean and blood thirsty.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon is amazing. I love Dimple and Rishi’s story. These two characters fit together so well. Dimple is headstrong and determined. She has a one track mind to win Insomnia Con. Her plans are derailed when Rishi shows up declaring her as his future wife. Rishi is under the expectation that Dimple knows that he is coming to Insomnia Con. to meet him. Dimple knows no such thing. This begins a whirlwind of events that brought so much joy to my life.

Maud by Melanie J. Fishbane shows how much work Fishbane put into this novel. I don’t know much about Maud except that she wrote Anne of Green Gables. Which of course Anne of Green Gables. Which of course Anne of Green Gables is amazing. As I was reading Maud, I could tell that Fishbane put in a lot of research for this book. Maud is such a great character. I love the strength that Maud is able to pull from inside herself. Her strength is so inspiring. All Maud wanted to do was be a writer and she accomplished her […]

The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble is charming and delightful. The Gold-Son reads a lot like a fiary tale story with a bit of a modern twist. This story has a great folk lore presence. I enjoyed the characters a lot. Tommin Kelly is always wanting to steal things. He doesn’t understand why. If only he knew his heritage. IT is hard when you don’t know the truth about who you are and where you come from. This is what Tommin had to deal with all the time. Carrie Anne Noble brings a beautiful story to her readers. As a […]
