Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Published: October 21, 2014

Pages: 391 (Hardcover)
Series: The Raven Cycle #3
My Rating:
5 of 5 stars

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

Time for a Change

You may have noticed that things are looking a bit different and you might be scared you've found the wrong blog, but have no fear you've probably come to the right place! I've been thinking about changing the looks of my blog for awhile now, but I'm lazy and couldn't find something that I liked until recently. I actually really like my new look. The only thing I miss is the old header, but other than that I'm really happy with what I did!

If you notice that something looks wrong/weird or isn't working let me know because I've been editing the code a bit and I'm still not great at editing it so there might be a problem here and there.

Anyway I feel like changing my template is giving me a fresh start. Hopefully I'll be able to read more often once I get all this college stuff out of the way and know where I'm going in the fall. I'm also thinking about doing a new releases post every Sunday like I used and maybe bring back Words of the Week, but I'm not making any promises that those posts will be every week or come back at all.

Oh and expect a review of Blue Lily, Lily Blue very soon!

ARC Review: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
Published: January 27, 2015
501 (Paperback)
The Bone Season #2
My Rating:
4 of 5 stars

Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London...

As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city's gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take centre stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner. Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided.
