I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

G’Day Bookworms! I had sooooo much fun during Book Blogger Appreciation Week, but let me tell you something. It wreaked absolute havoc on my TBR list. I don’t even remember where I saw it, but somewhere in the blog hopping I was reminded that I’ve only ever read one Markus Zusak novel (The Book Thief, natch. Which duh. Read about it HERE.) I Am the Messenger came highly recommended from this… Read more »

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I know I’m constantly shoving book recommendations in your faces, but I like to think we have a symbiotic relationship. I mean, when one of my friends says “OMG Katie, read this book right now” I’ll do it… Eventually. Case in point! My friend Ash told me that I needed to read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and I totally did. Seriously, it was in a timely… Read more »

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

I Vant To Suck Your Blooooood, Bookworms! I’m LYING. I do NOT want to do that. There are just so few vampire jokes out there, you know? Ah well. In case you hadn’t guessed it, today we’re talking vampires. Because why not? I’ve heard a lot about Holly Black and when I heard that The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was on sale for super cheap (thanks for the head’s up,… Read more »

Flight by Sherman Alexie

Flight by Sherman Alexie

Howdy Bookworms, Remember how I went on a crazy Cyber Monday shopping spree snapping up ALL THE DIGITAL BOOKS?! One of those books was Flight by Sherman Alexie, and holy cats, was it a doozie! Alright, so there’s this kid who calls himself “Zits,” right? Poor guy is 14, in foster care, and suffers from a severe case of acne. He is half Native American, his father is an absent alcoholic, and… Read more »

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Greetings, Bookworms! Last week I talked about how much I enjoyed Divergent by Veronica Roth, and in true Katie fashion, I began the second book IMMEDIATELY after finishing the first. I’ve been completely sucked into this world, so Insurgent and I got along juuuuuust fine. I said the other day that the second book in a trilogy is often sacrificed as the Jan Brady of books. (Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!) There were quite… Read more »

We Might As Well Be Walking on The Sun: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

We Might As Well Be Walking on The Sun: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

Hola Bookworms, The other day I reviewed The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I was all WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! So of course, I continued the series and just finished The Scorch Trials. Here’s the deal y’all. It’s kind of impossible not to spoiler the heck out of The Maze Runner and still review The Scorch Trials, so if you want to read them and know nothing, then stop reading this review right… Read more »

Cinder (ella, ella, ella, ay, ay, ay) by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (ella, ella, ella, ay, ay, ay) by Marissa Meyer

Hey Bookworms! So you all remember that I’m doing the whole Project Fairy Tale thing in February right? Well. While I was out trolling the interwebs, I noticed that there’s a brand spanking new version of Little Red Riding Hood due on the scene February 5th. The only issue I had was that it was the second in a series… OBVIOUSLY, I needed to read the first book in the… Read more »
