Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz

I am having a really hard time trying to sort out my feelings about this book. The story was beautiful and terrible at the same time – I both loved and hated it in equal measure. Since I finished reading Teeth it has continued to plague my thoughts. I can honestly say it is one of the most hard-hitting, emotional stories I have ever read. It is just really that good. […]

I have been waiting with baited breath for The Indigo Spell since I finished reading The Golden Lily, anxiously watching for updates, gnawing my fingernails down to the quick in anticipation (well not quite that bad but getting there!).

Along with his elder brother Alan, Nick has held the household together after the death […]

The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra R. Clarke

The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke started slowly for me. It took until about 50 or so pages in to hook me in but once it did I could not put it down. This is the story of Ananna of the Tanarau, a young pirate princess who escapes from an arranged marriage with Tarrin, the young heir of the Hariri, a rival pirate clan. Annana has dreams of having […]
