Review: The Knowing by Sharon Cameron

Why Did I Read? I loved The Forgetting and was ecstatic to learn that there would be a companion novel! My Thoughts: The Knowing takes place hundreds of years after the events of The Forgetting and there have been a lot of things happening since then! Right off the bat, you realize that this new society in New Canaan is something different and there are people who Know and they are different and special and never forget. It sort […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]

Review: A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Why Did I Read? I really loved An Ember in the Ashes! I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen to Elias and Laia and what was going to happen in the Empire. My Thoughts: As a whole, I definitely enjoyed this one. I’m actually having a hard time putting my thoughts together because there are aspects I REALLY liked but also things I really didn’t. For the most part though, this was an enjoyable […]

DNF Review: The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

I am very much a black sheep when it comes to this book and I was surprised and very sad to have to DNF it. This was one of my highly anticipated books of 2016! There is magic, Russian culture and a magical duel to the death! It sounded so epic and wonderful and I was just so excited for this story. I was sorely disappointed and no one is sadder about it than me. Firstly, I […]
