Review: Gilt

Review: Gilt

Gilt, gilt, and little more gilt. I couldn’t get enough of the rawness of this novel. It is literally one of the best written young adult novels based on history that I have ever read!

I really loved Eve, the first book in this trilogy, so I was obviously excited for this one.

At the beginning of the book, Eve is kidnapped and … Continue reading

Review: Of Poseidon

OH MY GOSH! THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I couldn’t put it down at all.

So the writing wasn’t the best. I … Continue reading

Review: The Diviners

Review: The Diviners

I was a little hesitant on reading this book because I am not of big fan of her books. However, The Diviners takes a  completely different approach then any of Libba’s other books. I was thoroughly surprised throughout the book. The Diviners changed my view on Libba Bray. She brings out a completely different world … Continue reading
