Reviews You Might Have Missed:

The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson -- how did I like the ending to this YA fantasy trilogy!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon -- what did Teen Snark and I think of this hyped adult fantasy?

Crown of Midnight by Sarah Maas -- why did I think this book was edgier, more romantic and more heartbreaking than the first installment?

Coming Up Next Week!

My Stop on the Last Hurrah Hop -- hosted by Candace of Candace's Book Blog.

Bookworm 1858 and I tackle a classic.  She reads stuff like War and Peace. Can I keep up???

Plus a review of Just Like Fate by Suzanne Young and Cat Patrick. And … probably some other stuff.

Hope you'll stop by. Tell me in comments what you've been up to, or leave me a link!


  1. I just finished Crown of Midnight and I loved it so much. I have no idea how will I survive until the next book. Dead Girls Don't Lie seems like an interesting read. I hope you'll enjoy it :)

  2. I liked Thin Space. A little depressing but it was different. I don't read any classics LOL In school I read Night, The Great Gatsby, To Kill A Mocking Bird, and Brave New World and that was it.

  3. Haha-you could totally read War and Peace if you wanted to. I'm just crazy enough to have decided to do it. I like that picture you found (made?)

    I really loved your review with Teen Snark this week-gave me some good chuckles.

  4. You can totally keep up with The Scarlet Pimpernel!! That book is amazing! (Once you get past the firs chapter) :) I hope you LOVE it! After you finish It you MUST watch the 1982 adaption with Jane Seymour. TOTALLY amazing.
    Have fun!!

  5. Thin Space! Dead Girls Don't Lie! Both of those are books I want to read... but I know I won't have time. I'm especially interested in Dead Girls. Also, thank you for the Crown of Midnight giveaway! I got an eARC of that one, but print books are fab. So, thank you! <3

    Have a terrific weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

  6. Thin Space looks good, hope you enjoy

  7. I loved Crown of Midnight and I really want to read Dead Girls Don't Lie!

    Happy Reading :)

  8. Awesome haul this week! The cover of Thin Space is really intriguing. I might have to look that one up on Goodreads to see what it's about. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you enjoy all your books! :)

  9. Cool! Thin Space looks pretty good.

  10. Don't even pretend, you can totally keep up. Remember that time you analyzed Cassandra Clare for parallels between her book and a classic that poor high school students have to read? :)

  11. Hurray! You got Dead Girls Don't Lie! Not that I thought you wouldn't. :) The Scarlet Pimpernel is easy reading. I don't think you'll have any problems.
