Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu *Review*

Is that Cinderella’s castle?! Why yes, yes it is.  I recently went on a trip to Disney and the only book I brought along, to be read on the flights only cause um.. Disney World, was Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu the second in the DC Icons series.  I was so excited to get this book when it came out that it was a wonder I waited until my trip to read it.  Batman is my ALL time favorite super hero.  I have always loved the comics, shows, and movies.  I love all the villains and heros that make up the city of Gotham.  That is why it really saddens me to say I was completely underwhelmed by this book and only rate it 3 stars.  Quite honestly I think its only that high just for the sole reason that this is a Batman book and I didn’t have the heart to rate it lower.

Book of Judas by Linda Stasi *review*

Thank you so much Forge Books and Get Red PR for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I give this thriller a 3/5 star rating!

A new adventure in Alessandra Russo’s life has her investigating the Gospel of Judas and some of its lost pages that have now come into her possession.  Linda Stasi writes about a well known mystery and brings it to new life in this fictional thriller.  A cross between The DaVinci Code and National Treasure, I was left wanting to know about the real mystery behind the Gospel of Judas.  While the story fell a bit flat for me, I enjoyed reading about such a unique topic and I was definitely intrigued to see what would happen to Alessandra along the way.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco *Review*

What do you get when you blend together unsolved historical cases, women fighting societal expectations, and romance?  Answer; an incredibly fun mystery that you won’t want to put down! Stalking Jack the Ripper is fresh and spunky and I enjoyed every second of the adventures with Audrey Rose in the late 1800’s.  While at parts a little slow and maybe a tad predictable I rate this exciting debut novel 3.5 stars!

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine (Book 1 in The Great Library Series) *Review*

Thank you Berkley Publishing for sending me a copy of Ink and Bone in exchange for an honest review. (4/5 stars)

Originally I wanted to rate this book 3 or 3.5 stars.  It started off a bit confusing to me in terms of how things worked, the items, and the world. As the story went on though it quickly became a 4 star read.  And as the characters and world developed and more of the inner deceptions of the library were shown, I got hooked.

The truth was what the library wanted it to be.

Lost Boy by Christina Henry *Review*

A Peter Pan retelling?? Sign me up!  Thank you Berkley Publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  It was a very dark, yet fun read that told the story of how Captain Hook came to be and how he isn’t quite the villain of the story we think we know so well.  While Peter Pan isn’t really the hero we all love and his island holds more troubles than fun adventures.

All children grow up, or they die, or both.  All children, except one.

Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo *Review*

I really, reallyyyy enjoyed this book.  And while I would love to give it 5 stars on principle because it’s WONDER WOMAN, I have to stick with 4 stars, which still means I REALLY LIKED IT, how could you not?  Badass females, diversity, humor, greek mythology, adventure and action, yes please! But, I wasn’t left feeling blown away and there was one thing I was a bit iffy on, but *shrug* this book is still amazing and you are crazy if you don’t pick this one up!
