My Rating: ★★★★☆

My Review/thoughts:

Set in a very clever, adventurous and futuristic world, Ben Sears introduces an odd duo in Night Air: Plus Man and his robot sidekick named Hank. After Plus Man and Hank are given a tip on where to score valuable alloy, they are determined to locate the treasure. The one thing they have to go through to get to this treasure, however, is a very haunted castle. Very reminiscent of Hayao Miyazaki’s works, Night Air is full of both intriguing and mysterious characters, an elaborate world with magical elements, and a plot that leaves you wanting more.

My Rating: ★★★★

My Review/thoughts:

The Kingdom of Falmoor—where both good and evil creatures lurk—is not the safest place for any set of twins to be born. All twins born in the Kingdom of Falmoor are doomed to be separated from each other, one way or another. Enter four-year-old Asher Caine. Asher mysteriously vanishes in the woods one day while playing with his twin sister Ariana. Eventually, after years and years of searching with no luck, Asher’s family couldn’t do any more than believe he is no longer alive. Ariana, however, even after nine years later, believes in her heart that her brother is still very much alive. And the only way to lift the curse of evil from the Kingdom of Falmoor is to find her twin brother. Elora of Stone perfectly combines fantastical magic elements with the very realistic magic that comes from a strong bond within a family.

Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson #4) by Rick Riordan

My Rating: ★★★★☆

My Review/thoughts:

Another Percy Jackson series book down, which means another book review that must be done. First and foremost, I am surprised that I am still into this series as much as I am. To begin with, I’m not very big on reading series in general. I seem to have a difficult time keeping up with series that has more than three books. I was worried that I was going to lose interest by the third book (which I think is still the best book out of all the books in this series so far, by the way). (more…)

My Rating: ★★★★★

My Review/thoughts:

There’s no arguing with me on this: this was a lot better than the second book. The Titan’s Curse was jammed pack with action AND new characters. I loved everything about this book and there was never a single dull moment for me!

Needless to say, I felt engaged with everything that was happening in this book and I felt more connected to the characters this time around. (more…)
