A Million Worlds with You

A Million Worlds with You
Posted 26 July 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I have recently discovered that I have a thing for books about the multiverse.  Something about the unknown, about the possibilities… that excites me.  This book, this series, did exactly that.  I loved the world that the author built and how she changed it between the various multiverses.  I also loved the mechanism […]

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 don’t know what I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said.  I read it after watching the Netflix series, and while there are definitely differences between the two, the combination left me reeling.  It is deeply moving, poignant, and yet one of the most hopeful books I’ve ever read. The […]

My Review This book… I had a bit of a book hangover after finishing it.  It is a beautifully written story with amazing characters and all the feels. Anna’s older sister Storm is killed on the night of her high school graduation.  Their parents fall apart, turning to each other in their grief.  Anna is […]

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 […]

Don’t Kiss the Messenger
Posted 10 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I loved everything about Don’t Kiss the Messenger!  For me, this story was very much driven by the varied cast of characters.  I loved that they weren’t cast as ideals, but with the flaws and hangups that we all can relate to. CeCe Edmonds was in a devasting crash that left her scarred in […]
