For more of my reviews, visit my blog As the Book Ends .I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. My best friend has this saying anytime we go out to eat and the food didn’t completely knock our socks off, but wasn’t inedible, he looks up at me and says, “It’ll make a turd.” Certainly an...

In the fall of last year, I was fortunate enough to meet Laini Taylor. Although I hadn’t yet read any of her books, her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy had been sitting on my shelf for some time. While I met many authors that day, she really stood out to me, not only because she has bright pink hair, but because...

Historical Fiction has always been a huge hit or miss for me — particularly in the YA genre. While I am partial to half-naked highlander romances, I don’t always enjoy something with little romance, and little-to-no fantasy. For these reasons, I had mixed feelings about this particular novel. In the first book in the...

When the final book in the Divergent trilogy was released four years ago, I remember being incredibly upset with the way it ended. Divergent was one of the books that made me fall in love with the dystopian genre. Somehow, the ending of that series soured me and gave me selective memory. Although I understood why Roth...

I received an Advanced Reading Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. My entire month was made on March 30, 2017 at approximately 2:40 p.m. Sometimes, as a book reviewer, you just have to be a little bit brave. A few months ago, Christina Lauren responded on Twitter to one of my reviews. I then boldly...

This may come as a massive shock to some of my readers, but I was not the most well-liked person in high school. As it turns out, playing the flute, having your nose stuck in a book constantly, watching “Star Trek” and “Firefly” religiously and loving cats did not endear me to the “in crowd.” Because I know I...

Nine times out of ten, when I finish a book I write the review immediately. I find that while the book is still fresh in my mind it’s easiest to put my thoughts into words. For the first time in my 7 months as a book blogger, I have spent days trying to decide how to rate “Wayfarer.” I just couldn’t put my finger...

Review When the final Harry Potter book was released in 2007, I vividly remember borrowing $20 from my dad so that I could wait in line at midnight to purchase it. The entire drive home, I found myself hoping I would hit a red light so that I could pick up the book and begin reading it. As soon as I stepped out of my...

Alright, 2017, we need to have a talk. You are turning me into the Oprah of 5-Star book reviews. Four 5-Star reviews in less than three months is too many. I’m not sure if this year is just a magical book year, or if January and February are great months and I’m bound to be disappointed for the remaining 10 months of...
