Review: The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

Review: The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

The Gameboard of the Gods was my least favorite of Richelle Mead’s books.  I’ll admit that I didn’t always understand what was going on in Gameboard, and I didn’t understand the heavy emphasis on physical appearance.  I haven’t read any of her other adult books yet, but I loved all of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines books.  But still, I have such faith in her work that even though the first book in this series didn’t really click with me,… Read more »

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Attachments is my second book by Rainbow Rowell, after Fangirl.  I listened to it on audiobook, which is the perfect format for this story.  Attachments is all about…attachments – those that currently exist, those that have shattered, and those that have yet to be formed.  It’s set in 1999, so we’re able to travel back in time to when the Internet was still the somewhat new world of the World Wide Web and when access to an email account at… Read more »

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: TOP TEN BOOKS I’VE READ SO FAR THIS YEAR 2014 is getting off to a nice start.  I’ve read 89 books so far this year, which just boggles my mind.  Six of those books have been 5 stars, and there are a nice amount of 4 and 4.5 stars.  I didn’t know exactly what I’d see before… Read more »

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I probably would not have picked up Since You’ve Been Gone, if not for the all of the enthusiastic reviews.  The synopsis seemed a bit light – maybe silly, even.  But oh, was I WRONG! Emily and her best friend, Sloane, have polar opposite personalities.  Sloane is the shining extrovert, and Emily is her painfully shy sidekick.  They met a few years before in a “meet cute” way that is more typical of couples in romantic comedies.  As soon as Emily… Read more »

What Was in the Latest Book Riot Subscription Box?

What Was in the Latest Book Riot Subscription Box?

It’s that time again!  Time to discuss the contents of the latest Book Riot subscription box! For those of you unfamiliar with subscription boxes, you can check out my reviews of the earlier boxes here and here.  In short, subscribers pay $50 for each of these boxes which are mailed four times per year, and the contents of the box are a mystery until you open it.  (People outside the U.S. can subscribe too, but there is a hefty shipping… Read more »

Review and Giveaway: The Bees by Laline Paull

Review and Giveaway: The Bees by Laline Paull

Bee society is pretty amazing.  With their tiny brains, they manage to form a complex society, with a strict hierarchy and rules and functions.  Every bee knows its role.  In The Bees, we go one giant leap beyond the real life of these insects to one in which bees talk and socialize with an intelligence comparable to humans. The bee characters in The Bees are highly anthropomorphized, which I expected.  Their society looks and sounds like medieval England, which I did not… Read more »
