This one was disappointing. Boring plot. Unlikable characters. Awkward 1st person. The magic system was weird, abstract, and random. It's almost like there wasn't a story being told...things just happened. The title of the book doesn't even have anything to do with what happens in the story...

Well, it took me more days than the usual to finish this book. But nevertheless I decided to give this book a 4 star rating.This was my first ever read of a fantasy novel about religion and I could definitely say that I enjoyed this experience. As a Christian, myself, I approve this one. It didn’t s...

A surprisingly enjoyable read. I have to admit, the cover and blurb do this book no favours. I thought this was going to be the most generic YA fantasy... and I'm so glad I was proven wrong. A chubby MC whose character transformation was probably the most believeable I've read in a while - because I...

I fail at this whole active reviewer thing as of late. I'm going to use the husband as an excuse as he came home from deployment recently, so I haven't had as much reading time as before. But I still manage to finagle time here and there. And devoted some of that time to this series, which wasn't...

I'm always a tiny bit afraid of the latest work by a favorite author, afraid I may be disappointed. But that didn't stop me from begging for an advance reading copy (ARC) from my dealer. Than...

Rae Carson's "The Girl of Fire and Thorns" should be celebrated for its diversity--a Latina main character who was pleasingly plump with a healthy intermingling of Spanish! Un soplo de aire fresco! (A breath of fresh air!)"The Girl of Fire and Thorns" could be a retelling of the fable "The Ugly Duck...

I don't like giving out low ratings to books. I try to read them fully and try to find something of merit in them. However, this book was a struggle to get through. I did not like anything about it. The first this that put me off to it was the writing. It's as if Carson was trying to write intellige...
