Hobbitsies Reviews: Awesome debut full of awesome things

Originally posted on my blog http://hobbitsies.net/2012/10/valkyrie-rising-by-ingrid-paulson/ Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson is an awesome debut full of awesome Norse mythology, kickass females, and swoon-worthy guys. While a few parts of Valkyrie Rising did seem to drag a bit, for the most part I read...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Perfect combination of romance, mystery, time travel, and angst

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone is such an awesome debut. I was led through all sorts of emotions while reading Time Between Us down and I set it down feeling very satisfied. I’m not usually a time travel person. It confuses me a little and...

Hobbitsies Reviews: My mind is blown

How do I even start reviewing The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin? Actually, let me start off by saying if you haven’t read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, you shouldn’t read this review. I won’t intentionally spoil book one, but just in case. The Evolution...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Important issues, but still entertaining and engaging

Guys, I loved The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez. I thought her debut, Virtuosity, was amazing, so I was super stoked for The Space Between Us – and I wasn’t let down. Virtuosity dealt with some very interesting issues in a super non-preachy, relatable way and...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Quick and Hilarious

Carrie Harris never fails to deliver the giggles, whether it’s her blog, her twitter, or her first book, Bad Taste in Boys. And let me tell you, Bad Hair Day is just as funny and entertaining. Bad Hair Day has an entertaining and engaging plot that makes...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Entertaining and engaging series

I loved Winter White by Jen Calonita! There’s something about this series that is so addicting and engaging and even though it seems like it might be shallow, there’s a lot of issues that are really relatable to teenagers today, except they’re presented in a fun and entertaining way. ...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Beautiful writing, had me in tears

Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini blew my freaking mind. Touching the Surface is one of those books where I was going “what the effffff” all the way through and still found myself sobbing at the end. I’m at a loss to describe my feelings for Touching...

Hobbitsies Reviews: Perfect ending

I’m not even sure how to write a review for Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan. I have been fangirling her since I was like 11 years old and first read the Sweep series, which I’ve read and reread 100 times since. And oh, how I love the...
