I’m on a roll! This time, a YA Book Review: “The Kingdom” by Jess Rothenberg — MuggleNet.com Book Trolley

Look at me, reviewing books again all bloggy-like! I'm a tad late re-sharing this post, but since this is one of those hot-bloggy-YA titles, I figured I would share it on here. It's worth noting that I wrote this review for a different site so I held back some snark that I'd normally use on… Continue reading I’m on a roll!

“Mirror in the Sky” Review: or, what happens when you force something into YA

Mirror in the Sky by Aditi Khorana. Razorbill: 2016. I read a book! It's called Mirror in the Sky, and it was written by Aditi Khorana. (I couldn't figure out an intro to this post - could you tell??) I heard about his book from Kristina Horner, a YouTuber who does a lot of BookTube stuff.

Review: Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. Harper Perennial: 2015. It's a book review? Whaaaat? Yes that's right, a book review! (And it's spoiler-free!) Pleasure reading has been slow going lately because I've been doing a lot of school reading that's beyond what's assigned (*nerd*), and the book I'm currently working on… Continue reading Review: Welcome to Night Vale

Review: Illuminae

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.  Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2015. Ok. So. Illuminae. Yeah. That happened. I finally read Illuminae. And I see why everyone is hyping it so much, because the hype is deserved, people. De-served. For those of you who don't know, Illuminae is a YA sci-fi (and romance) novel written in a series… Continue reading Review: Illuminae

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Disney Hyperion, 2013. First of all, look at this cover. Just look at it. It's so shiny.

Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Broadway Books, 2012. Ready Player One is about a kid named Wade who competes in a video game contest. But it isn't just a video game contest. The OASIS, a virtual-reality-massive-online-video game has become more of a reality than real life for many people living in the year 2044. And… Continue reading Review: Ready Player One

Comic book review: Serenity (Those Left Behind)

Serenity, Vol. 1: Those Left Behind by Will Conrad (Author), Joss Whedon (Creator), Brett Matthews (Illustrator). Dark Horse Books, 2005. What? A comic book review? Cool! I don't read comics. They never appealed to me because I was never really into superheroes - obviously I know there are tons of comics out there that don't… Continue reading Comic book review: Serenity (Those Left Behind)
