I have been seeing the Caraval cover on Twitter forever, and seeing people rave about the book as well. It always sounded interesting, but I hadn’t ever picked it up. As luck would have it, my mother-in-law brought it home on winter break and let me borrow it when she was finished with it. I’m so glad she did!

Seeing all the hype around this series made me wary. I’m the type of person turned off, or turned cynical, by hype. But I wanted to give it a try. The only way this book was available to me was audio, so that’s how I read it. Continue reading “Review – A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab”

I kept seeing this title around the Twitter-verse, and when I saw it was available on Overdrive I decided to give it a try.
I’d been seeing a little bit of The Reader on Twitter, and thought the cover was beautiful. When I found out Traci Chee is going to be at YAKFest, I thought it would be a good excuse to read this book 😉 I borrowed the kindle edition from my library on Overdrive.
