Review: Monsterland by Michae..

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this in a giveaway.  It was a very quick read, nothing really different from what I expected, basically exactly the type of story you’d expect from the title.  I feel there were some things that were missed that could have definitely added to the story, but […]

I have to thank one of my fellow teachers for passing this ARC on to me a month or so ago.  The author is a friend of one of our art teachers, and I’m actually going to get to meet her when she comes to talk to the students at our school in December.  When […]

Well, it looks like I read the book right before this in the series last year during my September Sequel Challenge.  So seems appropriate that this one is now.  Don’t know if I’ll wait till next year to read the 13th and final book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.  I’ll probably pick it up next […]

Thanks to HarperCollins Children’s Books and Epic Reads, I won this ARC from a contest in the Shelf Awareness email newsletter.  I haven’t read a lot of Neil Gaiman books, American Gods was one that I read and did really like though.  So I knew that I was interested in this.  The really cool thing […]

Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Okay, I see there is a TON of controversy and dislike on this book, so I have to post my review here as well as on my blog. I loved the first book in this series. The 2nd was kind of slow, but I could […]

Breaking Dawn Movie Review

Posted December 17, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 3 Comments

Yeah, yeah, I know this is a book blog, but as Breaking Dawn is a movie based on one of my favorite book series, I think this works. I personally felt this was the best of all the movies so far. I do have a few complaints, as anyone would. First, one thing I loved […]

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater My rating: 4 of 5 stars I waited a little extra long to read this because first I had to wait for this author to come to town when I would actually get the copy I had to buy in order to get into the event. But it was well worth […]
