Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

“There's a monster in our wood. She'll get you if you're not good. Drag you under leaves and sticks. Punish you for all your tricks. A nest of hair and gnawed bone. You are never, ever coming... home.” This. Was. Just. Great. I really loved this book. I loved the premise of the story, the… Continue reading Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Review: Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

“One of these days, I would love to exit a world without being pursued by an angry mob.” I think the trick to this book, and the first book in the series, The Sword of Summer is to just sit back, remove yourself from the logical part of your brain and enjoy the completely ridiculous joyride that it… Continue reading Review: Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan
