A Torch Against the Night



I read an ARC of this book.

Another exciting, action packed, just the right amount of romance, novel.

Although the first two books in the An Ember in the Ashes trilogy were fun (dare I say good) reads, I hope Tahir has something up her sleeve for the third book. It could easily become one of those "am I re-reading the previous book, or is this really the new one?" experiences.

Half Lost




A surprising, emotional, and appropriate conclusion to the Half Bad trilogy. If you have the opportunity to experience the audiobooks, I highly recommend it.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child






A fun, exciting, and magical look into the lives of many fan favorites. True to the characters and wizarding world. I would have liked to see more of Lilly and James Potter, though.

Side Note:
I have read a few reviews that state (complain) that they would have liked more description/ wanted to see how things were done. To them I say, this is a play. The point of a play is to watch it, not read it. If reading the script made you wonder what a particular scene would look like, or now something is done, I would consider that a strength of the writing, not a weakness. If dialogue alone pulled you into the world of the story, imagine what seeing it on stage would do.

Saga Volume 5



If you haven't read Saga yet, do it. Volume 5 continues the amazing story telling, artwork, and journey of the previous 4 volumes.

Burn Baby Burn

A compelling story that many teens will enjoy, but probably won't pick up on their own. This one needs to be sold, but it's worth the effort.

The audio book was fabulous. The characters were fabulous. The story was fabulous. You get the point.

Am Ember in the Ashes

Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed this book. At first I wasn't taken with Laia's story, but as she found strength, so did her plot line.
