We Were Liars

    “Be a little kinder than you have to.” Before I start, I have to say - I had started reading a review for this a while back, and at the VERY top, it said to go into this book without knowing anything. I stopped at that moment, and told myself I would wait.  I had the pleasure of winning a copy of this book from Indigo last year on Twitter, and I told myself I would read it the beginning of this year. I have to say - I should of read it sooner. I am going to go with what people have been suggesting.  I am not going to give away one thing about this book. I can say it is...

The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant

  “Could it be that Cania isn’t the ultimate prep school, isn’t the sure way into the Ivy League? As if to solidify my suspicion, a guy with emo eyeliner tells his ill-fated story.”   I am going to start off by saying, I am really excited to be taking part of 'The Wicked Awakening of Anne Merchant' Tour, which is the second book to this one. I received a copy of both books in the mail, and it was the best way to start off my new year! ( Thanks, BenBella!) The author, Joanna Wiebe, is a fellow Canadian, and as I mentioned in a previous post, I want to start reading more books from Canadian authors. So this is the first...

Anya’s Ghost

    First off, I want to start by saying, this graphic novel is amazing for anyone who has ever felt out of place at school or anywhere, at any time in life. Someone who doesn't feel they belong. I had an amazing time reading this - It made me think of how I felt in school when I was younger and it was highly relatable. I can understand now why this book has won so many awards. ( School Library Journal Best Book of the Year (2011), Harvey Awards for Best Original Graphic Publication For Younger Readers (2011), Horn Book Fanfare (2011) Just to name a few. ) To make this even better, the illustrations in this book are perfection. I loved them...

The Relics of Gods

    It is hard for me to write this review, and not because it was bad. This was the first book I read in 2015, the first one that kept me awake early into the morning, the first one to make me cry, and I want more SO badly! First off, THAT COVER. I love it so much. When I saw the cover and read the description to the book, I knew I needed to read this. This book was amazing, phenomenal, and so many other words that I can't think of at the moment because I am still feeling the effects of it ending. I want more from this series, right now. This book, I can tell right now, is going to...

Tuskers

Happy New Year guys! In 2014, I joined the Ragnarok Publications Street team. ( A great publishing company with some awesome people behind it. Check them out! ) The first book I had the pleasure of reading was 'Tuskers' by Duncan McGeary, which is published by Angelic Knight Press. AK Press publishes some amazing books, including a ton of wonderful looking horror books. ( Which I will be sinking my teeth into this year. ) Near the end of last year, Ragnarok acquired the horror imprint, and I am excited for this. REALLY excited. Check out my review of 'The First Forty Wink', which is a Ragnarok book, here. In December, I had the chance to hang out with some of the authors from Ragnarok,...
