Nearly ten years ago, K.B. Hoyle released the first of her Gateway Chronicles to the world, and I immediately fell in love. Through three different rounds of releases, covers, edits, I've had the pleasure of watching Hoyle's writing mature and her story expand into a vast and beautiful entity. What a pleasure it's been, being a part of the latest (and best) release of this series complete with new and vibrant covers, smoothed-out sections, and brand new material readers have never had access to before! Now, more than ever, the series feels well and truly complete.Read More
Caraval was full of surprise, hints of magic, romance, dark mystery, and anything else one could possibly long for in a story. With unique characters, a deeply complex and twisting plot, excellent pacing, and beautiful setting, her world is impossible to forget. Curious? Read more to find out.Read More
"The Book Jumper has a fascinating idea at its core—the idea that all literary worlds run on the same plane, exist in the same universe, and that they run like clockwork. Each day, the story starts fresh with characters who are not only self-aware as regards their roles and abilities in the world, but have the autonomy to make different choices that might fundamentally alter the story in every copy in the world, based off that master copy on Stormsay. Glaser somehow manages to convey characters' unique worlds and characters, yet add a new voice and viewpoint as well."

Review of S. Jae-Jones young adult romantic fantasy, Wintersong. This was not my favorite. There was lots of meh with a brief scattering of brilliance; but read the full review to see the extent of my thoughts.

"When you read Gemma Doyle's story, you are reading by the light of a candle, surrounded by dark wood and rich tapestry, while wrapped gently in a lace-edged dressing gown. Your heart will soar and stutter, your hands will shake. You will have to muffle the sounds of your delight and horror in turn, and you will never forget these books." 10/10 MagpiesRead More
