My Thoughts Well fems and chums, just when you think it can’t get any better… you get Gemina. I wasn’t sure what to think when I learned that Kady and Ezra were not the focus of this addition of the Illuminae Files but that uncertainty was completely unnecessary. I loved Gemina. I loved Hanna and […]

My Thoughts I am not sure I have ever encountered the level annoyance I experienced while reading Caraval. Scarlett drove me crazy with her naivety. And the constant arguing for no apparent reason and against all common sense. Who tries to row a sinking boat?!? Scarlett does. If I were Julian, I would have left […]

My Thoughts This might be my shortest review ever. READ.THIS.BOOK. <error> LISTEN.TO <error> <error> THIS.BOOK. <error> A Blockbuster Film in Book Form Seriously. Illuminae is in a league of its own. Visually, the book is stunning and completely unique. The narrative is presented as a series of documents that create an engaging and fast paced […]

My Thoughts Children of Blood and Bone is my favorite book of the year, hands down. It is as epic as it is powerful. On The Surface Tomi Adeyemi creates a beautiful, brutal and immersive world of magic, prejudice and fighting back. The cultures of Children of Blood and Bone are so vivid they draw you […]

My Thoughts This review is going to be interesting to write. I am a huge fan of Karen Marie Moning and the Fever Series. There are very few series I will reread and even fewer authors on my autobuy list – KMM and the Fever World fall into these categories. I am also well aware […]

Posted March 5, 2018 by ReadandWander in Reviews / 2 Comments

My Thoughts Typically, I do not read many books that are retelling fairy tales so I am unsure if I would have picked up The Hazel Wood on my own. When I do come across a new book, I generally check out a few reviews just to get a feel of how its been received. […]

My Thoughts I really wanted to love this book. Truly. There was so much hype surrounding it and so many positive reviews that I had relatively high hopes, albeit with a touch of skepticism. However, after finishing it I feel as conflicted and contradictory as the characters. I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy The […]

My Thoughts Wow. My mind is blown. Have you ever read or experienced anything that made you feel so incredibly small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things? That is Waking Gods and really the Themis Files in general. It has been over a year since I read Sleeping Giants so I had forgotten […]

My Thoughts I devoured the Grisha Trilogy while on a cruise last year. The world building was amazing but the main characters fell flat for me which is why I put off reading Six of Crows. That was absolutely a mistake. Six of Crows was everything I didn’t know I needed to start 2018. You […]
