And everything is pretty perfect (right… Continue reading Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door

Series Wrapup: The Grisha Trilogy

It took me about five months to get through this trilogy. For me this is a long time. If a series captures me I'll eat through it in a week or a month at the most. (I devoured The Lunar Chronicles in five days, I'm a monster when I like a series.) It shows in… Continue reading Series Wrapup: The Grisha Trilogy

Review: Sister’s Red

1/5 Originally posted Jan. 8th, 2016 on Goodreads I picked up this book because I am and always have been fascinated by different representations of werewolves. I was very disappointed with this book. The werewolves, called Fenris for some unexplained reason, served as flat monsters that popped up when the story got too slow. That's… Continue reading Review: Sister’s Red
