Book Review: Seven Deadly Shadows by Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani

This is the first YA book I have read in a long time (at least a couple months). I have forgotten, honestly, the common tropes and style of writing found in young adult fantasy.

Book Review: The Deep by Alma Katsu

I am drawn to any retelling of the sinking of the Titanic. When I saw this book coming out, which takes a more supernatural twist on the real-life tragedy, I felt I had to read it.
