There are those books that grab you by your collar, pull you beneath their pages, and drown you in adventure before you’re fifty words in.
My review of The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano as featured on Goodreads.com.
Two out of Five Stars
This spring I subscribed to The Bookish Box: an enchanting monthly subscription box that comes with bookish goodies, a literary-themed t-shirt, and a newly released title in either the adult or young adult genre.
The Hearts We Sold by Emily-Lloyd-Jones (great name!) took me by surprise. Lately, I’ve been working my way through piles of Owlcrate books I’ve yet to read. I promised myself I’d be pickier about reviewing new books, and I have. After a few titles that left me yawning, Lloyd-Jones’ YA novel about demons, deals, and (literal) heartbreak felt refreshing.
Norman Turrell’s Points of Possibility was my first audio book review and my first anthology review. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After putting on my headphones and pushing play, I closed my eyes and listened to the first scene. By minute two, I was hooked. Points of Possibility is the best work of science fiction I have read this year.
Rachael Tamayo’s novel Crazy Love is a brisk, psychological thriller that will leave you breathless.
I review OwlCrate’s monthly book lover’s subscription box!
Every once in awhile you pick up a book that refuses to let you put it down. New World Rising by Jennifer Wilson is that book.
My review of Michael Hoard’s The Adventures of Nick and Billy: The Mystery of the Rougarou: a fun, face-paced adventure set in the swamps of South Louisiana. It follows the mis-adventure of two young boys whose love for exploration leads them on a journey through the wilderness where they face not only the dangers of nature, but the darkness of humankind.*
My book review of Night’s Arose by Andrea Roche, a fast-paced, adventure-filled fantasy novel that will keep you enchanted until the very end.
