This is the final book in a trilogy filled with magic, set in Ireland, somewhat reminiscent of her Key trilogy, but equally delightful. Blook Magick, … Continue reading

Book Review: The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

I’m an unabashed fan of Jennifer E. Smith. I say unabashed because she doesn’t write what I typically read, and sometimes when I read things outside of my norm, I feel like I have to justify them. Luckily for me, these books can stand on their own two feet. First and foremost, the author is … Continue reading

Book Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown Holly Black 978-0316213103, Little, Brown, Hardcover, $19 What I love most about Holly Black as a writer is that she makes it seem so easy to completely explode apart a genre with her own unique take.
