Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Piss Us Off

April 28, 2015 Bekka, Pixie, Top Ten Tuesday 3

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Characters Who ___ Pixie and I decided to fill in the blank with “Piss us off.” While we love characters and we love reading, every once in a while we run across those characters that make us want to throw the book across the room. I’m sure you can all relate. So without further ado, here more »

Book Review: Awakening

Book Review: Awakening

April 27, 2015 book review, Pixie 1 ★★★½

  Awakening had all the makings of something to be excellent but it fell a little short for me in the end. I gave it an average rating, because that’s all it was to me. Average. Not something I want to go shouting from the rooftops, but it was definitely a readable, entertaining book that had me decide I would most likely read a lot more work from this author more »

Book Review: She Is Not Invisible

Book Review: She Is Not Invisible

April 26, 2015 book review, Lyn 2 ★★★★

I was a bit hesitant to start this one, since I read luke-warm reviews regarding this novel, which steered away from his usual theme. However, She Is Not Invisible doesn’t disappoint. Marcus delivers, yet again, a mind blowing adventure while giving full attention to the human factor of a story.

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses

April 23, 2015 book review, Kara, Lyn, Pixie 2

  At the start of the year, I had read A Court of Thorns and Roses and waited and waited (impatiently, really) to speak with everyone about this title. Then FINALLY my co-bloggers read it and we figured we’d do our review with a discussion! We love doing group reviews so be prepared for a lot of those–besides just Forgotten Fridays–and be prepared for the insanity below… 😀   Kara: So more »

Imaginative Discussions: Bookish Perception

Imaginative Discussions: Bookish Perception

April 22, 2015 Imaginative Discussions, Lyn 12

  This week, I finished Courtney Summer’s new book, All the Rage, on Friday. It was to the last 15% of the Kindle book, so I found any excuse to finish it by the end of the day: Lunch, breaks, more breaks, anything. I used it all to polish off the last of the book. I was in tears by the end of the day, for reasons. The book was more »
