Review: The Iron King – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron King – ..

So you may have noticed if you look at my current reading choices that I am reading things outside of my normal comfort zone. Graceling, Shatter Me and now The Iron King are all books I would never normally read. It started with Graceling and has since become my own personal challenge. Every month I am reading a book that I wouldn’t normally gravitate to. For February that book was The Iron King and what a great choice it was. A friend suggested I read it for this “challenge” and I took her up on it. At times I felt […]

Review: Requiem – Lauren Oliver

Review: Requiem – Lauren..

I was lucky, SUPER lucky and got to read this book back in November when a friend lent me her Advanced Readers Copy. To say I devoured it would be a huge understatement.  I read the whole book in probably less than 8 hours and it has taken me 3 months to get my thoughts on paper, 3 months to realize it is over, 3 months to accept that Lena’s story is done(well until the TV show starts!).  Why has it taken me so long? Truth: I’m devastated it’s over. I loved this series with everything I have and when […]

Review: Graceling-Kristin Cashore

Review: Graceling-Kristin Cash..

I’m going to say this and I’m going to say it without hesitation…Graceling was better than The Hunger Games. Yup, I said it out loud and I truly, honestly, 100% mean it. Because Graceling was hands down fantastic! It was a 471-page book and my only complaint is that it wasn’t longer. Graceling touched me in a way that no other book really has. And the truth is I almost didn’t read it. You see I had an aversion to all things deemed “fantasy” and refused to try them. Well after some listening to massive amounts of gush on this […]
