Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

I'm going apologize in advance for this review, because the majority of this is going to be dissecting the main character, MG, and why she's is the worst main character I've ever read, second only to Jazz from Artemis. If you want to skip to my review of the actual story, scroll down to the last … Continue reading Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

Book Review: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

I read this book in a day. A single day, starting before work at 7:45, and then continuing through lunch and even a bit at the comic shop later. I devoured this book, turning pages so quickly towards the last quarter of the book that I'm surprised the book didn't burst into flames. Was it … Continue reading Book Review: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

It has been a long time since I've read a book that made me want to just sit and finish it in one sitting, and in the past two weeks I've read two of them. One of them is the one in this review, A Darker Shade of Magic, and the other I'll review next … Continue reading Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

Book Review: “The Ragged Edge of Night” by Olivia Hawker

Holy cow. That's all I could think when I finished this book. Holy. Cow. The ending, breathtaking, wonderful -- this book surpassed all of my expectations. And then I got to the afterword -- this book is based on a true story. While somethings were changed, the majority of things stayed the same. I'm not going to tell you … Continue reading Book Review: “The Ragged Edge of Night” by Olivia Hawker

Book Review: “The Half-Known World” by Robert Boswell

Whoops. I know this was sudden, because I just posted the First Impression Friday topic on this book a few days ago, but to be honest, that was written a few weeks ago when I actually started the book. Now we stand here, with me scratching my head and attempting to figure out how I … Continue reading Book Review: “The Half-Known World” by Robert Boswell

Book Review – “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

If you'll remember from Friday, this is a book I was predicting a 3.5 - 4 star review. I've had a lot of time recently to listen to it, and I've finally finished it. First of all, my initial prediction thoughts seem to have been spot-on. This is a book about a dysfunctional family, and … Continue reading Book Review – “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

Book Review – “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster

I'm sure I've mentioned this one time and time again throughout the various Top 5 Tuesday posts or just my mental wanderings on this blog, but The Phantom Tollbooth holds a very special place in my heart. My fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Drumgoole, would read us part of a chapter after recess every day until we … Continue reading Book Review – “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster
