BOOK REVIEW:  HEARTLESS BY MARISSA MEYER

BOOK REVIEW: HEARTLESS BY MARISSA MEYER

Some books take you by surprise.  Heartless by Marissa Meyer was one such book for me. The story line is full of magic and marvel, danger and chaos, as one would expect from any tale from Wonderland.  Meyer does the whimsical world justice and pays enough tribute while spinning her own narrative.

BOOK REVIEW: THE GENESI CODE (THE GENESI SERIES BOOK 1) BY TRISTEN WILLIS

BOOK REVIEW: THE GENESI CODE (THE GENESI SERIES BOOK 1) BY TRISTEN WILLIS

Anyone who follows me on Bookstagram knows how happy it makes me to support authors and small businesses.  Tristen Willis happens to be both — a debut author, as well as the owner of Burning Pages Candles (a small bookish candle company).  I was so thrilled when I received a message from her regarding reading and reviewing an e-ARC of her novel, The Genesi Code. So, I loved the synopsis of The Genesi Code!  The cover is also really pretty.  This is the first book in a duology, although, I think Willis could have easily lengthened this into a trilogy.  I did like it, but I had issues with it, too.

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!
