Season of the Witch by Sarah Rees Brennan

Season of the Witch by Sarah Rees Brennan

Nope, nope, nope. Let’s be honest here, media tie-ins are always a risk.  First of all, most the time they make the assumption that you’re already a big fan and that’s why you’re reading the book.  I personally believe they’d be a more effective resource if the two could stand alone, and make you want to seek out the other.  Season of the Witch made me want to avoid The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Artemis Fowl is, undoubtedly, my favorite teen boy hero.  And yes, that means I like him better than both Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.  I like both their books fine, but Artemis himself takes the cake.  He’s a genius, inventive, confident, and captured an elf.  Sure – Harry and Percy fought gods and supervillain […]
