I couldn't review @AmieKaufman and @misterkristoff's Illuminae, so I made a list of the things I love instead.

I don’t even know where to begin in describing Illuminae. If you’ve been anywhere on the Internet, chances are you’ve seen someone excited for the book or being devastated by it, and I don’t think I can do a good job of writing a review that’s going to…

Co-blogging just won't work for me.

You barely make out the figure in black leaning against the wall in the dimly lit alley, but it’s enough for you to see the glint of a silver quill-shaped pin on the coat collar. You walk in. The figure spots you and straightens, and as you pass by–it’s a…

So, guess who didn't enjoy A Thousand Nights?

The Wrath and the Dawn is one of the most hyped books of 2015, so when I saw A Thousand Nights, that immediately made me bump it up on my want list. I didn’t realize how much I wanted Arabian Nights YA until I found out about those two books, and A…

I compared @Lbardugo's #sixofcrows to an ice cream sundae AND Avatar. You're welcome.

If Six of Crows was a sundae, it would be made of glorious dark chocolate ice cream drizzled with Grisha sauce and sprinkled with a bit of The Winner’s Trilogy. It’s dark, it’s delicious, and you want it in your life.

I enjoyed reading more about A in Another Day, but Rhiannon? shudders

I was so excited to be approved for Another Day, until I remembered that I didn’t really enjoy Every Day either. But this time, it’s even worse, because it was about Rhiannon. Oh, Rhiannon. If you don’t know about these two books, Every Day is about A, a…

Doctor Who and Sherlock! How do I resist Jackaby?

When I heard a description for Jackaby as Doctor Who meets Sherlock, I was ready to just scream at the thought of it. How do I deny myself this glory?
