Book Review : The Plastic Magician

Book Review : The Plastic Magician

  I really enjoyed revisiting the much beloved world of the Paper Magician in this triumphant sequel to the original trilogy. In the Plastic Magician, main character American-German Alvie Brechenmacher, delves into the newly discovered magic of Polymaking, the magical discipline of plastic, and finds herself across the pond in England, apprenticing with world-renowned Magician Marion Praff in what is another quirky and dear adventure. This book has everything, a marvelous heroine, romance, magic, creative […]

Book Review : The Bear and the Nightingale

Book Review : The Bear and the Nightingale

I bought The Bear and the Nightingale on a whim after seeing it on sale via Bookbub. I thought it sounded interesting, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. In all honesty, I adored this book. The prose was absolutely beautiful, the story completely unique and aptly showing the darker side of fairy tales, and the heroine was strong and utterly herself. As soon as I finished this book, I was […]

Though this book had its good points—mainly in the parts pertaining to Greek mythology—it read more like a middle school book—rather than a young […]

Book Review : Tower of Dawn

Book Review : Tower of Dawn

Spoilers are marked, but read at your own risk!    When it was announced in an earlier installment of Throne of Glass that Chaol and Nesryn were heading to the Southern Continent, I was disappointed. I always loved Chaol, and am still bummed that Aelin ended up with Rowan, and was annoyed that Chaol would not be involved in the exploits of the next book, Empire of Storms, just because he was injured and angry.

Book Review: Searching for Dragons

Book Review: Searching for Dragons

I never liked this book as much as its predecessor in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles and find I like it even less as an adult. It is still a very fun read, but I don’t like that the book is no longer centered upon Cimorene, her acceptance of  and the distinct lack of titular dragons.   Though this entry in the series still features Princess Cimorene, she is not the narrator or the main protagonist of […]
