Think of Our Reviews As Introductions or First Dates

 

We all know that nothing replaces reading an entire book (especially in one sitting, over a slow, breezy weekend…)

Think of our book reviews as first dates.  They are deeper relationships than the ones we share with strangers from a distance, but they don’t require intense commitment.

We hope you enjoy.  Please, be our guest.

No one can resist a woman that can kick ass, and Leslie in Lydia Carr’s story is one of those ladies. She may not be a soldier, or a warrior, but she’s a woman that is unafraid to say what she thinks, and I’m totally in love with her. That’s why I’ve read this story no less than three times.

I could write a fanfiction about Fangirl. I love it that much. As a writer of fanfiction, a lover of books and a massive nerd, it’s very difficult not to.

Cath is a shy girl moving to college on her own. Separated from her twin, Wren, for the first time, she finds comfort in the only other constant in her life – writing.

Walled City - Book Review

Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

by

While on first glance The Walled City appears to be a dystopian fiction, the book is actually based on a very real place: The Kowloon walled city in Hong Kong was once home to a Chinese military base. There was no architectural plan, which led to makeshift buildings being thrown up without a proper plan. The result was a haven of drug lords, poverty and a home for black markets and brothels.

The Walled City is based entirely on this premise.

Book Review: The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Archived by Victoria Schwab

by

Schwab’s world building in The Archived is top notch. There is so much put into the different aspects of the Archive and the world surrounding it – the Narrows, the Outers, the Librarians, the Keepers, the Crew, the keys. And so many rules that go along with each aspect.

The story follows both Echo and Noah’s points of view. It’s interesting the way she accomplishes this. She alternates the narrator by chapters. So one chapter you are in Echo’s head and the next is Noah’s. This could have been distracting if not written well but I feel like it enhanced the story!
