The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

  The Starless Sea was a book worth waiting for. The beautiful worldbuilding made me fall in love with The Night Circus despite the slow pacing because it was a world I wanted to be pulled into, to exist within the book’s pages because it is a beautiful place, if somewhat tragic at times.  The Starless Sea has that same magical aesthetic. Even after having read it, I feel as though there are so many mor doors to open, so many more paths to walk.  It is ripe for a retread, because the Harbor is not a place that can […]

The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer

The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer

The first time I read this, I gave it three stars.  Since I didn’t leave a proper review, I have NO IDEA what my thoughts were at the time.  Clearly, I was foolish.  This book is magnificent. The Time Paradox takes us to Fowl Manor, where Angeline Fowl is dreadfully ill, and getting worse all the time.  The Fowl men call in all their favors, touch on all their resources, but nobody knows what’s wrong with Arty’s mother.  Nobody, that is, except the faeries.  As it turns out, it’s an illness known to the folk and believed to be eradicated, […]

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

I reviewed this book in depth last March, so I am going to keep this brief and to-the-point. 🙂 The Dark Tower is one of my least favorite books of the series, mostly because of the events that unroll within it.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s extremely well-written, and the last 45 minutes of the audiobook are my favorite in the series.  It’s just that I’ve spent a lot of time invested in these books, and I don’t like seeing the characters I fell in love with, die. I mean, fundamentally, that stinks in any book, but after about the 50% […]

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Everything about Ready Player One is right for me. I’m a huge pop culture fan, so this book is one whole Easter Egg.  Add to that the world of the OASIS, which built to the greatest scope of of the imagination.  Imagine being able to build a character and step into that skin.  To create planets of your own.  To interact with people from all over the world and follow storylines of your favorite books and movies in an immersive world.  Add to the mix a group of incredible characters who are real and relatable, and you have a great story. […]

The Waste Lands by Stephen King

The Waste Lands by Stephen King

Guys, I love this book. The Waste Lands is where The Dark Tower series is REALLY starting to get good.  First and foremost (small spoiler, but honestly, this book is 26 years old) we get Jake back!  Jake and Eddie are my favorite characters in this series, so I love his journey back to Roland’s world.  Second, we get to see the city of Lud, which I think it the first real example of how Roland’s world has “moved on”.  Third?  BLAINE THE MONO. Blaine is my favorite villain in this series.  Probably on my top ten ever.  He is such […]

The Infinite Now by Mindy Tarquini

The Infinite Now by Mindy Tarquini

I have a lot of really mixed feelings about The Infinite Now. On one hand, it was undeniably a really interesting book.  On the other hand, it reminded me of a mess of yarn tangled on the floor after my kitten is done playing with it.  There are a lot of ideas and characters and intertwining stories.  The author reveals very little.  Most characters are wrapped around secrets.  This book needs to be read very slowly and very carefully, or you’ll end up in a corner and not know how you got there. Lets start with what I loved:  the history. […]
