A Beautifully Foolish Endeaver (The Carls #2) by Hank Green

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I loved the first book and was very excited when the sequel came out, but this one was not as captivating. It’s well-written but it didn’t grab my attention as much as the first book and I didn’t like the story as much.

This is the second book in the exciting “Warrior Bards” book series. There is plenty of action, intrigue and suspense in this riveting book.

Cry of Metal & Bone (Earthsinger Chronicles #3) by L. Penelope

cry of metal & bone

4 stars

Once again we are treated with an exciting, action-packed book about the struggle of Elsira and Lagrimar, two nations that have been at war for centuries. The book starts fast and doesn’t slow down until the satisfying cliffhanger. (I mistakenly thought this was the last book in the series, but no, we will be treated to at least one more book!)

Mayhem by Estelle Laure – Blog Tour

 

Mayhem_blogtourbanner_coming soon

3 stars

This is a fun YA fantasy book that is marketed as being “inspired” by the movie The Lost Boys. It’s a quick and easy read, however the book follows much too closely the the movie and doesn’t contain many original concepts. (It is also mentioned that the book is inspired by the movie The Craft, but I don’t really see it). Continue reading “Mayhem by Estelle Laure – Blog Tour”
