I recently read The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio and as I was reading, I couldn’t help but be astonished by the amount of damage a flower could inflict on a family. Continue reading “Murdurous Plants”
A little while ago I read both Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and a retelling of the story by Rachel Caine, The Prince of Shadows. After the experience I had reading Hamlet (I LOVED it!), I was shocked by my dislike for Romeo and Juliet. Continue reading “Star-Crossed Thieves and a Curse of Love”
This series is by far one of the best I’ve read this year.
The series follows a magician (or Antari) and a thief as they try to save their cities from destruction. They journey through Continue reading “Shades of Magic Trilogy”
I don’t even remember how I came across this book. I think it surfaced during a late-night-Goodreads-search extravaganza.
The Goblin Emperor is about a goblin/elf prince who, by a change in fate, becomes Continue reading “The Goblin Emperor – Review”
Six of Crows is the best duology that has recently graced my bookshelves. I don’t even know what to say first…
Let’s begin with plot. The series is about a thief, a sharpshooter, a spy, a Grisha (a.k.a. person who can pull off really cool magic,) a soldier, and a runaway, who Continue reading “Thieves, Seasickness, and Coffee”
I know I’m a couple months late with this one, but I was so disappointed I couldn’t bring myself to write it.

As a avid reader of all Rick Riordan books (Percy Jackson!), you can imagine my excitement at hearing a new series was coming out. But alas…disappointment… Continue reading “Poetry, Karpoi, and Metal Dragons?”
When I first studied medieval history I was bored to DEATH. I felt like all the details I found interesting were quickly glossed over, and the more tedious parts, like wars and dates, took up too much of my time. (If you’re looking for good history curriculum read this post.)
But recently I’ve taken a fancy to all things medieval. I think it all started with reading about Continue reading “Robin Hood, Fashion Laws, and the Plague”
I heard of this book from Fictional Fox’s review and I knew I had to read it.
Kiersten White is an amazing author. I love historical fiction, but it’s hard to find books in that genre that contain truthful historical facts, and I appreciate that White did thorough research before attempting to write a book that takes on a civilization whose history Continue reading “And I Darken – Review”
Just because I wasn’t blogging lately doesn’t mean I wasn’t reading. I was looking for a new series to begin reading, when I came across The Inheritance Cycle Continue reading “Shadeslayer and Brightscales!”
