The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

Growing up, I was never that big into the Disney fairytales. I knew the stories of course, but they never really interested me. I never had a favorite princess or a favorite fairytale. If I had to choose, I would choose Ariel with The Little Mermaid, or Belle with Beauty and the Beast. Lately, I have become more and more interested in the fairytales, both Disney and non-Disney, both traditional and reimagined. When I saw The Isle of the Lost, I knew I had to give it a try.

At the beginning of the book, to be honest, Prosper is annoying. While reading, it is easy to get annoyed with Prosper and wish that he would become more mature. As … Continue reading The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

If you have the choice to either read this book or to listen to the audiobook….listen to the audiobook! Narrated by Felicia Day, I couldn’t stop laughing during the vast majority of the book. I first discovered Felicia Day with her role in Eureka and thought she was incredible and hilarious. When I saw her audiobook on Audible, I knew I had to give it a try. When I saw that it was read by her as well, the decision was simple. Prior to listening to this audiobook, I did not know anything about Felicia Day (sorry, Felicia!) beyond her … Continue reading You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
