Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)
You may be confused as to why this gets a single star, whereas the rest of the series got none. It isn't because Breaking Dawn is better than the rest...more

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)
Again, I thought somehow the impact of this series would lessen on the second trip through. If anything, the opposite is true - without the drive to f...more

I loved this book as a kid, but i think this was the first time i read it through without skipping the long descriptions of the garden coming alive.

How to Ditch Your Fairy

Goblin Quest (Jig the Goblin, #1)
This was a fun (and funny!) read. Certainly makes goblins a bit more relatable. Looking forward to more of Jim Hines' stuff.
