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…

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…

The Dream Thieves

Read: 02/20-02/21 So as you all know I am typically not that good at finishing series. I’ll usually finish the first book and then don’t get to the rest for a while. Well let’s call in my new years resolution or something but I have been better at that since the start of 2017. So…

The Raven Boys

Read: 02/18-02/20 I had heard of this book before. During all my time working at a bookstore and visiting various bookstores I had seen it on shelves. I always just passed it by without a second thought. I never even imagined myself picking the book up off the shelf. However, one of my best friends…

The Knife of Never Letting Go

Read: 01/28-02/18 I love falling in love with a new author’s writing style. When that happens I will try to find out how many books they have so I can read them all. When I read A Monster Calls I instantly loved Patrick Ness’s writing. So when I saw this book on a display at the…

A Study in Charlotte

Read: 01/19-01/28 I have never read any of the Sherlock Holmes books and I was never into the various television shows or movies either. So it surprised me that I wanted to read this book. It didn’t seem like something that would normally pique my interest but sometimes it is best to get out of…

Finding Audrey

Read: 01/18-01/19 Since the previous book I had read wasn’t quite as light-hearted as I had wanted I decided to stick to my goal of reading something with a little humor. So I browsed my shelves looking for a book that would fit this need. Finding Audrey is written by Sophie Kinsella. It follows a…

My Life Next Door

Read: 01/12-01/13 I had read a lot of heavy, serious books in a row and decided that I wanted to read something lighter and happier. I think everyone should read “fluffy” books. A good old fashioned romantic comedy is a great way to refresh your brain. So I grabbed a book that seemed to fit…

The Killing Woods

Read: 01/11-01/12 I read Stolen by Lucy Christopher a couple years ago and I really enjoyed that book so I didn’t hesitate when I saw her other book on the shelf. However, it was another one of the books that sat on myself for a while. One reason could because it is a smaller book and…
