Book Review: “Dangerous Alliance”

As promised, today I am reviewing Dangerous Alliance! I interviewed the author of this novel this past Monday, so you can check that out at this link first if you'd like. Or you could just stay here and read my thoughts on the book, which was my first read of the year!! The suspense had really built up before I read it, as it often seems to with debut books for me, and I'm so glad it didn't disappoint! I think I've gotten better at picking books to read that I will like over the years :P. Anyway, onto the actual review!...

Book Review: “The Silvered Serpents”

EEEK!!! I can't believe I am writing this review right now! I won a giveaway that this marvelous author hosted on her Instagram a few months ago and it included an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of the next book in The Gilded Wolves trilogy. I only read the first book a few months ago and loved it (if you haven't read it then you can see my recent review of it here), so as soon as I got the sequel in the mail I was ready to read...

Review: The Gilded Wolves

I borrowed this book from the library several months ago now--during my summer holidays--and I read it promptly, but I haven't been very proactive in writing the review for it. Luckily, I take notes after finishing a book so that everything I want to write about it is fresh down on the page for me to revisit. Before I get into a new review, I figure I might as well catch myself up and write the ones I've been putting off. So, here I am drinking peppermint tea and freaking out about this intricately gorgeous cover that holds an even more intricate and gorgeous story...

Code Name Verity

After getting this at my favorite second-hand bookstore, I had high expectations. The synopsis and quotes on the cover from places like the New York Times made it sound like such a good book. Let’s just say that as of this moment, I finished it ten minutes ago. I still am not sure how my expectations of this book effected my reading experience, but it was a rollercoaster...
