Three Mini Reviews: Vespertine, Any Sign of Life, and Terciel & Elinor

Am I combining these three book reviews because I am a) woefully behind on my ARC reviews b) attempting to do a themed friday thingy c) feeling lazy or d) all of the above?

These two books have absolutely nothing in common other than they are YA and deal with the concept of time. One is about teenage vampires, the other about reincarnation, destinies and love. One I highly, highly enjoyed, and the other was underwhelming. So why am I lumping them together? I don't know! Okay, I do … Continue reading Two Mini Reviews: The Lost Girls and For All Time

Three Mini Reviews: Bad Witch Burning, Iron Widow and The Last Graduate

Okay, so aside from all three being fantasy (Iron Widow is science fiction, it's a stretch, I'm going for it), and the fact that The Last Graduate is adult not YA (surprise!), these three are in a review together for two reasons: 1) I am behind and have been procrastinating on these reviews and need … Continue reading Three Mini Reviews: Bad Witch Burning, Iron Widow and The Last Graduate
