[REVIEW] Artemis Fowl

What an interesting read! A kidnapped fairy. A boy and his bodyguard. An all new take on fairy tale creatures and how they have separated themselves from mankind. The main reason I began reading Artemis Fowl was that it was free for an Amazon sale. I had heard that this book was also being made…

[REVIEW] Good As Gone

Reading the synopsis, this book had me hooked. The first chapter, insta-hooked. The rest of the book, not so much. Good As Gone is a pyscho-mystery akin to that of gone girl in a way. Julie is a young girl taken from her home at a young age. Suddenly, nine years later, Julie appears again…

[REVIEW] That’s NOT What Happened

A warning: This book will show what happens after school shootings and how the victims cope and relive what they experienced. Leanne Bauer was one of six survivors of Virgil County High School‘s shooting. But her story has not been fully told. Now, she is writing a letter to those who need to know the…

[REVIEW] Burn Baby Burn

I need it to be known that this is a work of historical fiction. Burn Baby Burn‘s setting is 1977 New York City. Although, the main story is completely fiction. I did not enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. There was something missing from the writing I just couldn’t put my finger…

[REVIEW] The Diabolic

Let me preface this review by saying that this is one of the best books I have read in a while. The Diabolic written by S.J. Kincaid is definitely one that everyone should read. This undercover story begins with Nemesis, the diabolic hired to protect Sidonia Impyrean. Diabolics are genetically modified humans meant to serve…

Bridal Shower

On July 7th I had my Bridal Shower! It was so wonderful and I thank everyone for coming. My mom prepared such wonderful food she did so much for me I can’t begin to thank her enough! From food to fun games, the Shower has it all! From butter cream cupcakes with mini engagement rings…

Yet another score from Bookcon! This one is a Scholastic Advanced Readers Copy of a Titanic retelling. Maiden voyage written by Sarah Jane follows three girls and their intertwining stories. Lucy is a girl from a wealthy family on their way to vacation in America, Abigail is their maid, and Isabella has just been sent…

[REVIEW] Labyrinth Lost

Another great book that I obtained at Bookcon. This time, I can’t place the exact moment I got this book, but I do know that it is a great fictional epic that should be read. To begin, I love the representation in this book. The main character lives in NYC and this book really emphasizes…

[REVIEW] Your Soul Is A River

Look at how gorgeous this poetry book is! I obtained a copy of this from Bookcon. While walking the halls of the Javits, we stumbled upon yet another line. After getting in said line for this book we were then told we need to get other poets autographs first. This is obviously kind of awesome…
