Erratic reviews by a preposterous tea-drinking cat lady.

  Rating: Review: This was a strong conclusion to the Warcross duology. While I had a few reservations about Warcross, Wildcard put them to rest with a vengeance. While I found some of the descriptions of the tech in Warcross a little iffy, I was very pleased with it in Wildcard. I think Marie Lu […]

  Rating: Review: The Gilded Wolves is a unique story. One-part adventure, one-part heist, and one-part fantasy, this incredibly lush story will transport you to another time. It’s set during the turn of the 20th century in France (1890s roughly), but in a world that has a magic called Forging. Forging is the ability to […]

He life is on a waverunner somewhere in the water of her parents’ marina. However, her best friend Alana, convinces her to take a course making the […]

Rating: Review: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Is all Julie Kagawa like this? Because If so, I REALLY need to read her other work. This book was hands-down, one of the most amazing YA fantasy books I’ve read all year. Yumeko is half-kitsune, living in an isolated […]

Her love of music is disfavoured by society, though she practices at night in secret. Kestrel is also an […]

“We can’t let boys define how we feel about ourselves. You have to know who you are before you should let any boy worth anything in.” Rating: Review: Charlie (Charlotte) has been raised with only three older brothers and a cop for a father. She grew up an awesome athlete – playing pickup games and […]

  Rating: Review: “Technically, I’m a murderer, but I like to think that’s one of my better qualities.” This book is basically what the Little Mermaid would be if Ariel was a deadly siren who killed princes and collected their hearts. Lira is the daughter of the Sea Queen. Known as the ‘Prince’s Bane’ she […]

  Rating: Review: This is my first Kasie West book after hearing people I know RAVE about her. Caymen is 17, living with her mother in an apartment about their doll shop. Caymen is sarcastic, brash and poor. Her hobbies include science and rich-people watching. She spends most of her time helping out in the […]
