{Review} The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

{Review} The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

Hey guys! It’s me, the girl that took forever to start the Throne of Glass Series. I wrote my super late to the party review of the first book, Throne of Glass HERE so you can check that out of if you are late to the party like I am. But I totally loved the first book, and I decided that the next book I would read would be The Assassin’s Blade, which is a bind up of all the prequel novellas. I should start off by saying I am kind of Leary of a book of novellas, but it was recommended to me to read them either first or near the start of the series, and boy am I glad that I did. I completely agree. I think The Assassin’s Blade would be best enjoyed if you read it either before or right after the first book. I loved The Assassin’s Blade. It helped me get to know Celaena so much better! Plus, we got to see and fall in… Read more »

{Interview+Giveaway} The Possible by @TaraAltebrando @bloomsburykids

So check out the fun interview, the information on The Possible and then be sure to enter the awesome giveaway down below to win all kinds of awesome books! Describe The Possible in a tweet. (140 characters or less.) A creepy book about a girl who may or may not have inherited telekinetic powers from her mother—and the podcast being made about them. If you could have any kind of special powers, what would they be and why? I’d like telekinetic powers for sure. It has sort of a lifelong obsession of mine. Like I wanted to be Matilda or the twins from Escape to Witch Mountain or a Jedi or the genie from Bewitched. Right now, because I’m a mom, telekinesis feels like the most practical special power to have. I could deliver snacks to my children and pack their lunches and… Read more »

{Review} Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas @SJMaas @bloomsburykids

I know I am super late to the party here, but holy cow! I now know why Throne of Glass got so much hype. And trust me, it lived up to all of the hype and then some. Throne of Glass is a young adult fantasy by Sarah J. Maas and I already know it is going to be one of my favorite YA fantasies EVER. I may be the last person to jump on the Throne of Glass bandwagon, but I am fully on board now. I loved this book, pretty much instantly. In fact, I was downright mean to anyone that interrupted me while reading. And my attention span was complete rubbish when I had to walk away from the book and function in the real world. It has been ages since I was unable to focus in school or at work because I was way too busy thinking about a book. But Throne of Glass completely grabbed me and did not let go. Even now, I am… Read more »

{ARC Review} Undeniable by @LizBankesAuthor @bloomsburykids

{ARC Review} Undeniable by @LizBankesAuthor @bloomsburykids

Undeniable is a young adult contemporary romance by Liz Bankes. First off, I should say that I saw this book as more of a crossover between young adult and new adult. I think it will appeal to both upper YA readers as well as NA readers. Undeniable is a quirky and fun contemporary romance story that plays out a fantasy of almost all teens. Gabi lands an internship on the set of her favorite tv show and starts a whirlwind romance with an up and coming actor. I mean, come on, who hasn’t thought about the possibility of running into, and hitting it off with your favorite actor? (I know you are lying if you say you haven’t) Also, I wanted to say how much I liked the cover of Undeniable. I love that it is mostly greys with some pops of color. Gabi, however didn’t match the description and image I had in my head, but that is a minor point. Gabi is a kooky young lady. Some might… Read more »

{Review} Wild Hearts by Jessica Burkhart @bloomsburykids

{Review} Wild Hearts by Jessica Burkhart @bloomsburykids

Wild Hearts is the fourth standalone title in Bloomsbury’s young adult contemporary “If Only” romance line centered around an impossible problem: you always want what you can’t have! Each of the books has a cute if only sentence, and Wild Hearts’ is “If Only…their fathers didn’t hate each other.” Brie’s father is a land developer and he is hired to create a new hotel in a small rural town…where wild mustangs run. I bet you can guess that the town is not too happy with that. And cue, Logan’s father being the mad ranch hand. Along with the rest of the towns people.  I thought Wild Hearts was a very cute little romance. It was very light hearted and a read that will make you feel good. For being an irate town of protesters, I thought that Logan was actually very welcoming. Maybe a little too welcoming, if that makes any sense. My only snag with Wild Hearts was that most of the town was so nice and understanding. Which… Read more »
