Paper Fools – Review

IMG_9771editedFormerly known as Deer in Headlights, Staci Hart has completely rewritten and re-edited the story and re-released it under a new cover and new name: Paper Fools.
Deer in Headlights has been waiting on my TBR for ages. The re-release of Paper Fools was the perfect opportunity to finally dive into the world of Greek Gods and New York City.

Aphrodite is the Greek God of Love but don’t you dare ask about her personal love life. It is way too messy and complicated. She would rather focus on a game that the Greek Gods of Olympus love: toying with human hearts. And this time the stakes are higher than ever before.
There is no denying that Lex wants Dean and Dean wants Lex, but they are not supposed to want each other. With wanting Lex, Dean can lose everything he ever worked for in his life. Is he willing to sacrifice that for a chance with her? Lex on the other hand is too afraid to put her heart on the line. And she is certain, if Dean ever breaks her heart, there will be no coming back from it. Will love be worth the risk for her? Continue reading “Paper Fools – Review”

Blurb:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

IMG_5255.JPG
Like certain songs and smells can trigger memories, I feel like the books I read can help me remember certain instances from my childhood or similar reading experiences I may have had years ago.  This book was one of those welcome triggers for me.  It made me feel almost childlike again, captivated by an exciting world I had yet to discover.
As I began reading, I wasn’t sure what to expect other than what I had read from the synopsis years prior and the clips I had seen on the previews for the new movie.  It looked interesting, and I had heard it compared to Harry Potter.  Of course, I was instantly sold.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Spoiler Free:
As many of us Potterheads who grew up being transported to Hogwarts every year, I was apprehensive to head back into the magical world of Harry Potter.  Could a play possibly do it justice?  Would it ruin something that had become so special to my childhood?

The Bird and the Sword

SPOILER FREE:

Amy Harmon’s first release of 2016, The Bird and the Sword, was an amazing book I read back in May.  I devoured this book in less than 24 hours and still think of it frequently three months later.  For me, the mark of a great author is one who can create a story that sticks with me long after I finish the last page.  I’m not a typical fantasy reader, with the exception of the Harry Potter series, so I felt as if I was taking a risk with this book.  After seeing the many raving reviews on Goodreads, I knew I had to give it a chance.  I am without a doubt glad I did.  Continue reading “The Bird and the Sword”
