This one wasn't for me. It had been the October pick for my library's Forever YA book club, and I ended up skipping our October meeting because every time I'd try to start the book, I'd nope out, and couldn't even get all the way through the prologue. But when I checked out the hardcover edition, ...

I was so disappointed in this book, I really thought it was going to be such an awesome book, but that so wasn't the case. I will continue on in the series, because I love to give books another chance, especially if it's a start of a series. But if the wicked King also let's me down, I won't read th...

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black “You really do want me,” I say, close enough to feel the warmth of his breath as it hitches. “And you hate it.” I actually regret that I didn't read this jewel of a book sooner. But I am equally sad about the wait for the second book in the ...

I absolutely loved that book. It was amazing. I loved everything about it. When I fig...

This is not a story about Tinker Bell. There is no Neverland where all of the fairies happily live together. There isn't any pixie dust, but there is a lot of blood. Holly Black's faeries aren't tiny wisps of whimsy who endeavor to help humans. This is not a fairytale but a faerie-tale. Black's tale...

To Ms. Black author and torturer -What ?!?!? Ms. Black that is how you left it ? You went along basically on a straight path till you blew up the direct path replaced it with a spiral lined with deadly thorns. I never saw it coming, there were no hints, so sneaky. So how long do I have to wait for...
