Hi book dragons! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. I took a bit of a hiatus the last few months due to some crazy life changes, including getting a dog!! I would like to introduce you all to my baby, Fable!!
In my previous post, The 4 Things I did to Break My Writer's Block, I mentioned that I reread books as part of getting out of my writing slump. Die for Me was one of the books I decided to try rereading. I first read this book around the beginning of high school and absolutely adored it. I was curious to see if my opinion of the book had changed over the years, or if I still thought it was amazing. When I first read this book, years ago, I would have given it 5 stars and a full on fangirl rant. After rereading it however, I found that it didn't exactly match with my memory.
This book series is absolutely blowing me away. When I reviewed Throne of Glass (which you can find the review of here), I had a million thoughts running through my head. I was lost for words for a good couple of weeks. I wish I was kidding. I figured reviewing the rest of the series would be easier. I was wrong. So very wrong.
I've mentioned my love of Colleen Houck's book series, Tiger's Curse, on my blog before (you can find the post here). I absolutely adored this series and I still reread the series to this day. I was practically ecstatic when I heard she came out with another series and rushed to get my hands on a library copy.
Happy January everyone! This is my first post of the new year and I'm so excited!!! What better way to kick off 2019 than with a giant review on one of my favorite book series, Virals! This series is by Kathy Reichs, author of the famous Bones book series (and TV show), and her son Brendan Reichs, author of Nemesis.
Kingdom of Ash and Soot is the perfect blend of historical fiction, fantasy and a unique Cinderella retelling. I had some mixed feelings when reading this book, but overall I enjoyed it and am curious to read the next book in the series to see how Eleanora's story continues.
With the approach to Halloween, I've thought more and more about some of my favorite (and least favorite) monsters and ghouls. Lucky for me, I have an excuse through this blogoween prompt to discuss my favorite type of monster - werewolves.
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin isn't the genre of book I normally go for, but after reading Hannah Lynn's last book, The Afterlife of Walter Augustus, I really wanted to give this book a shot. I really enjoyed it! Though I don't fall in her target audience, I still found the story funny, compelling and a pure joy to read!
Hello all and welcome to Fable Hunter! Today I am so pleased to bring to you all an interview with RN Merle, the author of a brilliant fantasy novel, In Fallen Woods. It's a beautifully written story about a young witch trying to find the truth about the world, and even herself.
