Dark, Twisted, and Wonderful

Originally posted at http://shelversanon.blogspot.com I know others have said that that you don't need to read Graceling and Fire before reading this book, and it's true. Cashore does an admirable job of making sure all three books can stand alone. However, I may throw around spoilers for...

Call the Waaaaambulance

Originally posted at http://shelversanon.blogspot.com I had such hopes for this book. I've already reviewed the first book in the series, The Goddess Test, and at the end of my review, I listed a few things that I hoped to see in the sequel, mainly growth from Kate...

Sneaky, Sneaky Gen

Go look at the summary of this book. Such a sparse description, isn't it? But then, I didn't care when I first picked up this book at my local library. Sparse though it is, the description hit me hard in several areas of interest - a braggart who might actually...

My New Favorite Book

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com Thwarted arranged marriages, female assassins, life-or-death stakes, a reeeeeeally awesome love interest, AND a killer dress-and-crossbow combo on the cover? Great heavens to Betsy, I'm in love. Ismae is one genuine kick-butt female. She has to be, really. Her mother...

A Fantastic Companion

Another fun Gallagher romp. If you haven't read my review for book #1 (I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You), I suggest taking a peek because much of my praise and criticism holds true. Much of the new adventure harkens back...

I'd Tell You I Love This Book... Because I Do

I first picked up ITYILY because of Dot Hutchinson. She reviewed the entire series on her blog, and I figured, "Hey, if she likes it, I guess it can't be that bad." My little sister also loves the series, but that doesn't hold much weight with me. She's fifteen and...

Review: Stolen by Lucy Christopher

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com Oh, this book. Talk about a land mine. Whisked from an airport in London to the empty and deserted Australian Outback, Gemma is completely without resources. She's too far from the nearest town to summon help, too deep in the Outback to hope...

An Emotional Look At Love, Marriage, And Family

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com Let me get this out of the way: Divorce sucks. It's sucks, and it's crap, and I hate it. Believe what you want, but anything that normalizes divorce really grinds my gears. This is a book that portrays love as something that comes...

Innovative Fairy Tale Retelling

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com Confession: I am a huuuuuge fan of fairy tale retellings. The idea of taking such a well-known, beloved tale and keeping its heart and frame while reframing the story in a way that makes the readers rethink what they previously knew... Mmmm, shivers...

A Fun, Fast-Paced Read

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com SHATTER ME is a first-person narrative from Juliette, a seventeen-year-old girl from an Orwellian future, who is locked in solitary confinement to protect others from her lethal touch. Now really, if that fact alone doesn't grab you, I doubt anything in this review...

A Pleasant Surprise (Plus, I Love Peregrine!)

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON http://shelversanon.blogspot.com UNDER THE NEVER SKY is a dystopian third-person dual narrative. To be honest, when I read the description, I wasn't very interested. I hate switching to different perspectives, the whole girl-from-a-supposed-utopia-goes-to-the-wild trope is getting a little old, and I figured I knew exactly...
