Unique Story Line Great Book

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvatar is a must read for the fall. The lore is unique and the plot will keep you turning the pages late into the night. The Raven Boys is unlike any book I’ve ever read. The lore starts out similar...

Good ending for the series

Spellbound is the third and final installment in Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series, and it definitely establishes love/hate feelings in me. On the love side, the writing is solid, and the snarkiness of the characters creates a fun atmosphere, even in times of danger. The story picks...

Not for me
