Epic of Palins (#1 and #2) by Elizabeth Vaughan

Well, let me start by saying I didn’t finish the series, despite the misleading post title. But we’ll get to that. I started with Dagger Star. I recently finished the Warlands series by Vaughan, and I loved it. I figured I’d love another Vaughan novel, too. I didn’t. Maybe my hopes were too high, orContinue reading “Epic of Palins (#1 and #2) by Elizabeth Vaughan”

Lauren’s Autumn Reads

I’m currently struggling through a book I’m not thrilled with (it’s not quite to the ‘didn’t finish’ stage—I’m too far in), so I thought I would think positively and look toward the future: the books I want to read this fall. In my world, fall begins September 1st, though in everyone else’s it’s typically atContinue reading “Lauren’s Autumn Reads”

Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan

After reading Stolen Songbird, falling in love with it, and then realizing I would have to wait until spring for book two—well, I was looking for a fantasy series with more than one book. I wanted several. I’m a total binge reader (obviously) and a series? A series is awesome. A series is the best.Continue reading “Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan”

Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen

I chose this book on a whim after reading several other third installments in trilogies I’ve been reading. Without checking the publish date, I tore into the book, turning pages like it would disappear if I set it down. Needless to say, it was a fabulous read. It flew by in a blur of magic,Continue reading “Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen”

Throne of Glass Series 1-3 by Sarah J. Maas

I thought this was supposed to be a trilogy, but I was pleasantly surprised when I was left with a giant cliffhanger at the end of book three. Just kidding. I panicked, and jumped on Goodreads as soon as I could to see if there was a fourth book in the works. There is. AndContinue reading “Throne of Glass Series 1-3 by Sarah J. Maas”

The Healer Series by Maria V. Snyder

Let me preface this by saying: I am a huge Maria V. Snyder fan. I’ve read the Study series and the Glass series, so naturally, I was very excited to see that she had written another series. In true bibliophile fashion, I read each book in under 24 hours. Never start a book on aContinue reading “The Healer Series by Maria V. Snyder”

The One & Only by Emily Giffin

I was eager to begin reading The One & Only—partly because I love Emily Giffin and partly because I had just finished All Fall Down and was in the mood for a fun summer read. I didn’t read what the book was about before downloading it to my Nook and diving in. I’m glad IContinue reading “The One & Only by Emily Giffin”

Two Review: All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner

To be perfectly honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this novel. My last experience with Jennifer Weiner left me feeling let down and empty, so I have avoided the rest of her works for about a year now. When I saw that she had a new novel coming out, I was intrigued. Around theContinue reading “Two Review: All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner”
