ARC Review: Lost Gods by Brom

ARC Review: Lost Gods by Brom
My Thoughts It's taken me WAY too long to gather up my courage and finally write this review. The thing is, Brom's books are intense and deeply rich. They leave me thinking about them way after I've finished reading. The illustrations draw me back again and again, and each time I take a moment to look at one of them, I notice more and more that I didn't see before. I am such a fan of multi-layered and, multi-layered writing, multi-talented creative people! Friends, this book is dark (which should...

Review: Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

Review: Goliath by Scott Westerfeld
My Thoughts There are a lot of books that I love and a lot of series I'm especially fond of. But it takes a special book and a special series to give me the kind of massive book hangover I received after reading the final pages of Goliath. You guys, I love this series so effing much. Scott Westerfeld has created a world that I want to live in; a world I wish had really come about instead of this one (no offense to this world, but guys, there is an airship that is an entire ecosystem of living...

Review: Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

Review: Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
My Thoughts After falling in love with Leviathan, I was eager to read the rest of the series (and had it on order so I could get them all signed at an upcoming Westerfeld event). But Behemoth hadn't arrived yet, so I had to put it on hold for a while. I was SO happy to finally dive back into this world! Once again, Westerfeld impressed me with the ridiculously awesome and inventive creations in this series. Though certainly some of the newness had worn off, I was glad to see that there were even...

Review: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Review: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
My Thoughts Confession: I hadn't even heard of Scott Westerfeld until a few years ago when I saw Marissa Meyer for the first time (and still wasn't sure if I wanted to read Cinder - LOL), and she named him as one of her biggest influences. Since then, I'd been mildly curious about him. Sometime last year, I traded my ARC of Reboot for a paperback of Leviathan, and it just sat on my shelf collecting dust. I even bought an ebook of Uglies when it was on sale, and still haven't opened it. And then...

Bookish Review: Tinder by Sally Gardner

My Thoughts This was one of those impulse purchases. You know, the kind where you walk into a bookshop and see a book on a shelf and just think "MUST HAVE!" It's usually as a result of the cover. This was definitely as a result of the cover (which was illustrated), and also the fact that said the illustrations for this book didn't stop with the cover but were sprinkled all throughout the book. Was this impulse purchase worth it? Not this time. Unfortunately, I only loved this book for the...
