Review: Grail of the Summer Stars

My Thoughts: So yea, this was 10 times better than the previous Aetherial Tales book. Sooo wonderful. We have a nice new character named Stevie. After being plagued by hallucinations for as long as she can remember, which isn’t very long as a large chuck of her life is missing, she learns that there might be a reason for all her problems.

Her character answers the questions that started to form in the first… Read more »

In preparation¬†for Catching Fire, the movie, I decided to reread the Hunger Games. But I’ll give you just a little background about how I came to read the Hunger Games in the first place. My friends had been bothering me about reading the Hunger Games for at least a year, and me, being not particularly inclined to read a book that has been recommended to me by too many people, I kept telling them “No, I’m good… I don’t really read futuristic, fight to the death types of books.” My friends call me a book snob/hipster. And I guess it’s… Read more »
