The Star-Touched Queen

Read: 05/03-05/07 As I have mentioned a couple times throughout my book reviews, book festivals are a great place to get book recommendations. I learned about this book series while attending the Fierce Friday event at Yallwest this past April. Of my collection of books that I got from my adventures at Yallwest (and there…

Glitter

Read: 04/24-04/26 Every March the Tucson Festival of Books is put on at the University of Arizona.  I happened to be home visiting the weekend it was happening this year so I was excited to go. Mostly because the author list was great for this year. One panel I was really excited about seeing had…

The Magicians

Read: 04/03-04/23 There has been a lot of hype about this television show lately and obviously since it was based on a book I had read it first before I saw the show (this is a joke because if you read some of my others posts you will see that I have seen movies or…

Luckiest Girl Alive

Read: 03/29-04/03 This was a book I had pointed out to my mom when it had first come out because it looked like something she would like. Fast forward a couple years and I had heard so much about it from friends that I decided to give it at chance. Based on the description I…

Witches of East End

Read: 03/26-03/29 After reading several dark and suspenseful books I decided to make a change in the genre I was reading. So I switched it up and went with a fantasy novel. I had high expectations for this book because I enjoyed the TV show so much. I know I should learn to not compare…

Girls on Fire

Read: 03/21-03/26 I had my eye on this book when it first came out but it was one I decided to wait to get it until it was in paperback. Well once that book hit the “New in Paperback” display I grabbed it up. I was on a suspense and twisted binge with my books…

The Kind Worth Killing

Read: 03/15-03/19 Another good place to get book recommendations is from book clubs. One of the book clubs I am sort of a member of (moving back and forth gets in the way of book clubs) is set up so that everyone just shares the book they are currently reading, instead of everyone reading the…

The Drowning Girls

Read: 03/03-03/07 There are many great tools out there when it comes to finding new books. One of the ones I like to use is Pinterest. There are multiple different “pins” out there to help recommend new books based on ones you’ve read before. That was how I came across this book. The Drowning Girls…

Big Little Lies

Read: 02/28-03/03 Once again I was the person who decided to read a book because it was going to be a movie/television show. I also bought the tv show cover which some people consider a big no-no. But I say as long as books are being bought and read it doesn’t matter why you choose…

Reign of Shadows

Read: 02/25-02/28 Another day, another book recommended by a friend. I remember when she was reading this book. We were on a “staycation” and we were having a conversation about how annoying it is when two characters just won’t kiss. Then she proceeded to tell me about the book she was reading and how she…

The Raven King

Read: 02/22-02/24 This is the final review of the Raven Cycle and it was an emotional journey. I read this entire series in about a week. It was definitely a roller coaster. However, I would recommend reading this entire series back-to-back. I truly think that is the best way to experience the entire series. It…

Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Read: 02/21-02/22 It is time for the review of the third book. Once again I started this book immediately after finishing the second one. The sequel ended with a cliff hanger that I needed answers to. Blue Lily, Lily Blue brings us closer to the location of Glendower. At the same time the characters are…
