Abigail William’s Revenge

History has always been my favorite subject in school.  No matter what we did in class, whether a test, essay or presentation, I enjoyed it.  That being said, the time when the pilgrims and settlers came to America and the early days of my country is one of my lesser favorites.  Why?  Because I've read … Continue reading Abigail William’s Revenge

The Roanoke Girls

Unlike most books that I pick up, I got it after seeing the cover.  Usually, I ignore the cover and decide whether or not to get the book after reading the summary, but I had a feeling about Amy Engel's The Roanoke Girls.  It probably helped that, at the time I checked out the Roanoke Girls, I … Continue reading The Roanoke Girls

Quoth the Raven…

This was one of those books where I saw the cover and cringed.  With a moody boy all in black holding onto a blonde bathed in pink, I had to fight my better judgement to read the description.  I was intrigued but unwilling to start a new trilogy.  It wasn't until one of my favorite … Continue reading Quoth the Raven…

Down, Down in the Underground

Holding promises of magic, music, and a fairy tale atmosphere, I knew that from the moment I saw S. Jae-Jones's Wintersong it would be love.  For once, I didn't wait eons to bring it home.  I stared at it, smelled the pages, and began consuming it. Ever since she was a child, Liesl heard stories of … Continue reading Down, Down in the Underground

Night of Goblins (#1)

Sugar, spice, and everything nice, That's what little girls are made of. Pepper, wine, and everything fine, That's what women are made of. Darkness, kisses, and everything wrong, That's what monsters are made of. Copyright © 2017 by Nita Pan All rights reserved.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (#1)

I finished Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy yesterday.  It was emotional.  Needless to say, I felt the need to vent my feelings about it and so here we are!  (Mild spoilers for book one.) Bitter lies Sweet lips Feet scramble across the courtyard Their hands clasp together Bodies and souls joined forever A … Continue reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone (#1)

A Separate Peace

About a month ago, I bumped into my cousin at the library.  We got to talking and I confessed that I needed something good to read but I seemed to be picking similar books.  After spending a good twenty minutes rifling through bookshelf after bookshelf, we finally decided on A Separate Peace by John Knowles. Even … Continue reading A Separate Peace

Rooms, Rooms. Too Little Room.

In accordance to my usual ritual when reading books I know I'll like, it took me awhile to actually sit down and read.  Since 2015, when the local library first got the book, to be exact.  After checking it out at least five times and reading the first twenty pages over and over again, I decided … Continue reading Rooms, Rooms. Too Little Room.

Evil Grandmas, SATs, and Other Things I’m Iffy About

When my mom brought home Forever, Again by Victoria Laurie, I immediately thought, chick lit!  and I back peddled.  Not that there's anything wrong with chick lit; it's just not my usual cup of tea.  But, after reading the jacket and first page, I decided to give it a chance.  After all, don't they say not to … Continue reading Evil Grandmas, SATs, and Other Things I’m Iffy About
