Everything was great about this book until the epilogue, but I guess that's understandable considering how epic the trilogy was for me. There could have been worse endings, though.

Regardless of the fact I didn't love the epilogue, I'm still giving t

I have loved Sarah J Maas's writing ever since I found her profile on Fictionpress. A Court of Thrones was THE 2015 release I was waiting for, and it certainly did not disappoint!

Great Addition

The second installment of the Veronica Mars books was a bit harder to get into, but once I did get into it, I didn't know how to put the book down.

Fortunately, there was more Logan. And a puppy. And Veronica solving crimes. All good s

Sometimes I'm not entirely sure what is going on when I'm reading The Raven Cycle books. I guess they would merit a re-read to get the full-effect. At the same time, the books are still enjoyable.

School has resumed in Blue Lily, Lily Blue, but Blue'

Raging Star wraps up the series, albeit on a weaker and messier note than I would have liked. I'm not sure what was so disappointing about this installment, but it may have to do with the tangent story lines that were never fully resolved. (view spoi ...more

I'm sad it's done, but I was quite happy with how everything turned out in the end.

The Grisha trilogy has been one of the better young adult fantasy novels I've read in quite awhile. There was plenty of world-building, plenty of character developmen

“If I was good at marketing, I’d spin you an empty story that sounds profound. But the truth is that we’re all just stumbling around in the dark. Sometimes we hit something terrible.”

“We now play a permanent game of I-am-crazier-and-scarier-than-you. And in that game, my mother is our secret weapon.”
Susan Ee, Angelfall

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Faerie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold...The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords. In that realm a man may, perhaps, count himself fortunate to have wandered, but its very richness and strangeness tie the tongue of a traveller who would report them. And while he is there it is dangerous for him to ask too many questions, lest the gates should be shut and the keys be lost.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“If a man has to say trust me, Gogu conveyed, it's a sure sign you cannot. Trust him, that is. Trust is a thing you know without words.”
