It's impossible to put down this historical mystery, set just after the advent of Darwin's On The … Continue reading Review: The Lie Tree ★★★★☆

Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s … Continue reading Review: The Vanishing Girl ★★☆☆☆
I was intrigued right away by The Citadel of the Sky by Chrysoula Tzavelas. A fierce warrior princess setting out to defeat a great evil with a flaming sword. Sounds awesome, right? I thought so too. But things never turn out how we hope they will, do they? Her (not very) Serene Highness Princess Tiana tries … Continue reading Review: The Citadel of the Sky ★★☆☆☆
