Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I picked up “Unearthly” for the simple fact that Angels seemed to be an ongoing theme and I wanted to see what all the hub-bub was about. What better book series could I choose than one that toes the line between fantasy and religion. To be perfectly honest, I am...

Vast Improvement Over Tiger's Curse

As seen in my review of the first book Tiger’s Curse, I was not fan of this series or the characters within it. I found Kelsey to be incredibly annoying and her constant damsel in distress routine to be tiresome. The only thing that kept me powering through the book...

Dystopian Dream

When I picked up this book I had not heard a great deal about it yet. I went into reading it completely blind without having read any fellow blogger’s reviews, which may have made it possible to judge the book solely on how I interpreted it. ...

Rossi Does It Again!
