Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

This is the first book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and a series I've been wanting to read for years. So many people have compared it to the Harry Potter series, which is one of my favorite book series of all time, and yet I never read it growing up. I suppose … Continue reading Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Throwback Book Series Review: The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

I have been burned so many times by fairytale retellings, but this series is one that keeps me hoping that the next retelling I read may actually be good. I discovered this series around 2007 (at the time, only five of the books were released, which is also how many I've read), and fell in … Continue reading Throwback Book Series Review: The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

Book Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

I have seen this book (and its subsequent sequels) on bookstore shelves since I was a child. However, I never bothered to pick it up. I'm not sure why, since the cover is rather appealing. But, apparently the movie adaptation is being made, so I thought it was about time that I tried reading this … Continue reading Book Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

This will be the first of many Christmas/winter themes books I will be reading, both this month and probably for the rest of winter. I don't what it is about winter that makes me want to read books set in cold places. Anyway, I was drawn to this book both because of its cover and … Continue reading Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

On the rare occasion I will read a Middle Grade book, and 9 out of 10 times, I will really enjoy it. With YA novels, the chances are usually as low as 3 out of 10, so it makes me wonder why I don't read more Middle Grade books. Anyway, I spotted this book a … Continue reading Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John R. Erickson

Where do I start with my experience with this book and the series that follows it? Rewind about seventeen years to a tiny library in Sherwood, Oregon, which was my first library. I happened upon a book about a dog who protected a ranch and loved it. Now flash-forward to the present day, I have … Continue reading Book Review: The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John R. Erickson

Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

I have no idea how I grew up without reading this book. I am probably one of the few kids in the United States that did not read this during childhood years. However, I can safely say I knew this plot only from Muppet’s Treasure Island. I grew up watching that movie multiple times per … Continue reading Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

This is a childhood book for many people, but for some reason I never read the full book. I had a shorter picture book of it and I watched multiple movies, but never did I actually read the entire book. Since it’s relatively short, I added it to my list of books to read for … Continue reading Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri
