Book Review: The Impostor Queen

Maryam already reviewed this title when the book first released, but Sarah Fine is one of my favorite authors, and I needed to also throw in my own two cents. So, my turn. I’m sure that everyone already knows the premise for this book – the girl in the novel, Elli, is not the “chosen one,” and flees, fearing what will happen to her when the people who swore to protect her can’t seem to explain her lack of magic.

But it was SUCH A GOOD HURT. I loved the first novel. more »

Book Review: Of Metal and Wishes

Nothing was going to stand in my way when this book hit my feed. Minority on the beautiful cover, a fresh, edgier premiere and a story that delved into cultural approaches really got my bookboner going. Many other bloggers reported that this was a retelling of Phantom of the Opera – score! That is, hands down, my favorite musical. When Halloween rolled around, it was one on my TBR pile for the season. My biggest regret was not reading this as soon as it came out. It would have been worth calling in sick to work to polish it off more »
