BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD (THE CROSWALD SERIES) BY D.E. NIGHT

BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD (THE CROSWALD SERIES) BY D.E. NIGHT

The Crowns of Croswald is a whimsical tale (reminiscent of Cinderella, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson) of a young girl on the path to self-discovery in a magical kingdom.  This is the debut novel from D.E. Night; the first book in a Middle Grade Fantasy series.  I am 32 years old, so I seldom read Middle Grade literature, but the synopsis and beautiful cover of this book instantly caught my attention.

BOOK REVIEW: COMING UP FOR AIR (HUNDRED OAKS SERIES) BY MIRANDA KENNEALLY

BOOK REVIEW: COMING UP FOR AIR (HUNDRED OAKS SERIES) BY MIRANDA KENNEALLY

I read the synopsis for Coming Up for Air and knew that I wanted…needed…to read it. This was my world, once upon a time, and I was very excited to dive into this read. Maggie was attempting to get her Olympic trials cut in swimming while trying to scrape up some shred of normalcy for her high school experience, but we get so much more than just her swimming journey. Friendships, crushes, awkward experiences, and more!

BOOK REVIEW: THE DREAM THIEVES (THE RAVEN CYCLE #2) BY MAGGIE STIEFVATER

BOOK REVIEW: THE DREAM THIEVES (THE RAVEN CYCLE #2) BY MAGGIE STIEFVATER

The Dream Thieves picked up where The Raven Boys left off.  However, I quickly discovered that the second installment of The Raven Cycle primarily focuses on the story of Ronan Lynch.  The reader continues on the mission to uncover the mysteries of Henrietta and Glendower, but the point of view shifts to mostly that of Ronan.  I started off reading this book slowly because, to be frank, I was not the biggest Ronan fan in The Raven Boys, but I learned to love him by the end of this book.

BOOK REVIEW:  Wonderland by Emory R. Frie

BOOK REVIEW: Wonderland by Emory R. Frie

I ordered my copy of Wonderland from Amazon and finally read the synopsis once it arrived. I thought it sounded interesting, and it is not a big book, so I figured it would be a fun, quick read. I took far longer than I probably should have to read this book, and I believe that stems from a disinterest that set in fairly early. I struggled to get into Wonderland.
