Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Posted 15 May 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Dreams of God & Monsters is the last of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy and I am so sad to see it end.  This has been a wild ride with a beautiful cast of characters and a thought-provoking story that held me from beginning to end.  Despite the length of these books, they […]

My Review I honestly don’t know how to feel about this book.  I wanted to like it, but I couldn’t help but notice the vaguely racist tone to it.  And that turned me off the entire story. The story revolves around Akos and Cyra, two people from different tribes.  They share a planet, but share […]

My Review I truly love this series!  The characters are fantastic and the story is thoroughly engrossing.  The world of this series is a wonderful blend of the real and the imagined and they fit together seamlessly. The cast of characters expands in this series and they are all beautifully developed.  But Akiva and Karou were […]

My Review I closed the book after the final page and wondered to myself… why did I wait so long to read this book?  The story, the characters, the writing… all of them were so enchanting and engrossing.  Everything about this book was magical! Set in the city of Prague, Karou lives alone in a […]

Everyone We’ve Been

Everyone We’ve Been
Posted 18 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Everything We’ve Been is the debut novel from author Sarah Everett.  It is one of those books that gives all the feelings, but sorting them out is next to impossible.  Sadness, laughter, anger, disbelief, even horror of the emotional variety. The story is told in two timelines, one from before Addison’s accident and the […]

The Infinity of You & Me

The Infinity of You & Me
Posted 12 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Infinty of You & Me, a collaboration between authors Julianna Baggott and Quinn Dalton, is a fascinating take on multiverse theory.  Every decision made creates a new parallel universe.  And for Alicia, every single decision is a paralyzing moment, no matter how seemingly insignificant the choice.  Her entire life has been plagued […]

My Review Atlantia is a standalone novel by the author of the Matched series, which I loved.  This book, however, left me with mixed feelings.  The premise was amazing, but I just felt disconnected and I can’t quite figure out why. The novel takes place in a dystopian world split between the Above and the Below, the […]

My Review I grew up in Amish country in Northern New York, an area of both strict ordnungs more liberal Mennonites, so the topic of this book intrigued me the moment I read the back.  The story is mainly set in Pinecraft, a community in Florida that consists of both Amish and Mennonite residents.  “Snowbirds” are […]

My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]

My Review I really love the premise of this series!  In the world of Seriously Shifted, witches are not good.  Not all of them are evil, but there is a defined since of superiority that allows them to live by rules of their own.  But Camellia is determined to change that.  Her mother is on the […]
