Don’t take the City of Sin lightly – it will change you. Ace of Shades sets up a world where nobody is what they seem.  Everyone wears a magic, everyone has a talent they hide, and everyone has sworn an oath.  Whether it is to a street lord or one of the powerful casino families, oaths mean blood is spilled, loyalties are split, and nobody […]

  This little book was quirky, fun and adorable.  Everything I’d expect from Roald Dahl. I know I don’t often review children’s books, but some just deserve a bit of love.  Silly nostalgic books from silly nostalgic authors.  Between The BFG and Matilda, Roald Dahl ruled my childhood.  And, as I’ve grown into adulthood, I’ve learned he wrote a lot more books than I knew when I was a kid.  Am I going to let being 28 stop me from reading them?  Um, no. The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a cute little one-off story about a boy and his […]

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Hmm.  Mixed feelings about this book.  On one hand, Blue Window was a really neat idea about five siblings who fall through a window and end up in a strange world where they have to find their way home and also not get destroyed by the strange looking humanoid inhabitants of that world.  It was a fun ride with nuances of The Chronicles of Narnia […]

  I’m having a weird moment where I don’t know what to say about a book. Simon was adorable.  110% of myself wanted nothing more than his complete and total happiness.  I liked Simon.  I liked Simon a lot.  I wanted to sit and watch his antics and frustrations and being human all day long.  Every time I sat down with this book, it hooked me.  So much love, honestly. It is a really quick read.  Legit, I sat down to read a couple chapters because I had a smidge of downtime and read the entire rest of the book.  The […]
