Forgotten Things

Forgotten Things

My Review Forgotten Things is the debut full-length novel by author Stephen Mullaney-Westwood.  It is a beautiful story woven between the reality that we all know and that inhabited by the creatures of lore that so many of us dismiss.  It is a coming-of-age story that centers around Adam and his friends Martin and Josh.  Adam has just moved […]

Magic’s Price

Magic’s Price

My Review While I have loved this series, I think that this one is my least favorite of the three.  I love Vanyel’s character as much as ever, even with all of his stubbornness.  For me it was Stefan’s character, as well as bits of his back story, that just didn’t do it for me. […]

Foundation

Foundation

My Review One of my favorite parts of the Valdemar epic saga are the Collegium so I love that there is now an entire series based on them!  Foundation is the first in a (so far) five book series set in the Collegium.  While Mags is the center of the series from the Herald Collegium, the […]

Paper Towns

Paper Towns

My Review As with anything and everything I have read by John Green, I greatly enjoyed this book.  No, I didn’t sob my way through it as I did with The Fault in Our Stars, but it was moving in its own way. This is a book that can’t be easily categorized as any one thing… […]

Escape from Witchwood Hollow

Escape from Witchwood Hollow

My Review Such an interesting book with a great premise!  The novel centers around three girls of varying ages.  Each of these girls is from a different historical time period… the 1600s, the 1800s and the 2000s.  Each of them is connected in some way to the mysteriously cursed Witchwood Hollow.  Historical novels are not […]

Dirt Daughter

Dirt Daughter

My Review Dirt Daughter tells the rather tragic story of Elena Black.  She has known a life of tragedy and loss, betrayal and neglect.  When she was young, she lost her best friend Lizzy in a terrible accident, her body never found.  Soon after, she lost her father when he died after a fall from […]

Magic’s Promise

Magic’s Promise

My Review This book takes up long after the end of Magic’s Pawn and Vanyel is exhuasted by the wild magic and trauma that he has been through.  He is almost an entirely different person in this book, changed and matured with the experiences of his past.  As much as I loved the first book, I think […]

About a Girl

About a Girl

My Review About a Girl is the third book in Sarah McCarry’s Metamorphoses series, telling of a third generation.  The first book, All Our Pretty Songs, tells the stories of Aurora and her nameless best friend.  The second book, Dirty Wings, tells the stories of Cassie and Maia, the mother sof Aurora and her friend.  This book tells the […]

Magic’s Pawn

Magic’s Pawn

My Review I love all of the series and singles that make up the entire Valdemar saga, and this one has always been one of my favorites.  Vanyel is a character that I think, in some way, is a universal character that we can all identify with in one way or another. Vanyel Ashkevron is […]
