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.
This fast-paced novella packs a punch in just over 100 pages of crime-solving drama. Smart and sassy heroine, Emlyn Goode, uses her wits and some divination from her magical ancestors to solve extraordinary mysteries.
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.
