ONE DARK THRONE is the second book in the Three Dark Crowns series. I absolutely loved THREE DARK CROWNS and I was really excited to read this. In short I will say that I was not disappointed. This sequel is even darker then the first book. If you haven’t read THREE DARK […]
I don’t know what I was expecting with this book. I picked it because I love the cover. Sometimes this method of picking a book works. This time it totally did. I really loved SPINDLE FIRE once I got into it. This is the re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland, if […]
I am so in love with this series. I became a fan of Colleen Oakes in reading the first book in this series, QUEEN OF HEARTS. Yes, this is the retelling of Alice in Wonderland. It feels fresh because the focus is on how the Queen became so evil. It is hard not […]

In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomach-ache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of beasts.
But becoming the Queen Crowned isn't solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it's not just a game of win or lose . . . it's life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.
The last queen standing gets the crown.
Three Dark Crowns is a heart-stopping fantasy from Kendare Blake, acclaimed author of Anna Dressed in Blood.
THREE DARK CROWNS was deliciously dark! This story is about triplet sisters, all with a different power, raised separately by the houses that hone that power. On the year of their sixteenth birthday, these three will face off and have a year to kill each other. The one left alive will inherit the […]
This book was so refreshingly different. It is set in prehistoric times. The author obviously did a lot of research into what life might have been like. I felt like I was right there. Your clan is everything. The struggles for life and to find a mate are real. The dangerous animals and […]

We Were Liars meets Looking for Alaska in a uniquely funny and heartbreaking teen novel about a passionate-yet-doomed friendship set against a backdrop of wealth and glamour.
Willa Parker, 646th and least-popular resident of What Cheer, Iowa, is headed east to start a new life. Did she choose this life? No, because that would be too easy—and nothing in Willa’s life is easy. It’s her famous genius mother’s idea to send her to ultra-expensive, ultra-exclusive Pembroke Prep, and Willa has no intention of fitting in. But when she meets peculiar, glittering Remy Taft, the richest, most mysterious girl on campus, she starts to see a foothold in this foreign world—a place where she could maybe, possibly, sort of fit in. When Willa looks at Remy, she sees a girl who has everything. But for Remy, having everything comes at a price. And as she spirals out of control, Willa can feel Remy spinning right out of her grasp.
Andrea Portes, author of the hilarious, heartbreaking Anatomy of a Misfit, spins a similarly incandescent, heartfelt story that explores the meaning of friendship, new beginnings, and the precarious joy and devastating pain of finding home in a place—a person—with wings.
This was such a fun book about a girl going to an ivy league high school across the country from her actual home. Willa’s mother is famous for her brain and her father is just a regular guy. Of course she grew up with her dad and hasn’t seen her mother in years, […]
The Great Hunt is a retelling of the Grimm Brother’s fairy tale The Singing Bone. “A certain country was greatly troubled by a wild boar that attacked workers in the fields, killed men, and tore them to pieces with its terrible tusks. The king of the country had offered rich rewards to anyone […]
This was a lot darker then I thought it would be. The protagonist is sheltered and lives in a tower. After an eclipse came and altered the dark and light of earth, Luna was born. Luna was a princess, but her parents were killed off quickly by the bloodthirsty king. A couple who […]
This is a hard review to write. The background is complicated. I really enjoyed this book. The protagonist is a kick ass assassin (or clipper, as they call them in this story). She has been training since birth to kill. She kills quickly and with honor for the goddess who demands a blood […]

A captivating story about mental illness that lingers long beyond the last page, the novel features haunting interior illustrations by Neal Shusterman's son Brendan.Laurie Halse Anderson, award-winning author of Speak, calls Challenger Deep "a brilliant journey across the dark sea of the mind; frightening, sensitive, and powerful.

I got this book from the library. I have been meaning to read it for myself ever since I read this review on Feed Your Fiction Addiction. I am happy to say that Challenger Deep was as good as I had hoped. This book is about one young mans journey into the abyss […]
