Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova

I finished reading the first in the Brooklyn Brujas series, Labyrinth Lost, a few days ago. I decided to sit on my experience for a bit before writing about it. I want to talk about how I discovered the book in the first place. Thanks to various Goodreads book giveaways, the novel was put onContinue reading “Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova”

Meagan Reads Poetry: Card of Fate by Duke of Quails

I was asked by a Goodreads author to review their book of poetry honestly, so here are my thoughts on Card of Fate by Duke of Quails. This collection of poetry deals with the subject of gambling addiction, mostly from the perspective of the addict. Each poem reiterates the vicious cycle of one more hit,Continue reading “Meagan Reads Poetry: Card of Fate by Duke of Quails”

Meagan Reads YA Horror: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

As part of my ongoing (and almost done!) reading challenge, I chose this young adult horror novel about a protagonist named Theseus Cassio (who prefers to go by Cas) for the category “a book you heard about because of this challenge.” Following in his father’s footsteps, Cas has become a ghost hunter with a planContinue reading “Meagan Reads YA Horror: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake”

Meagan Reads Classic Mystery: The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes

It’s been a while since I gave my insights to a book I’ve read.

The story takes place in London, where a series of Jack the Ripper styleContinue reading “Meagan Reads Classic Mystery: The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes”

A Totally Biased Review of Anne With an E

I say biased because I grew up reading the books and absolutely loved them. I may have mentioned that before in previous posts, but in case you missed it, I LOVE Anne of Green Gables. I read the first book over 15 times, and I know this, because by the time I got to readContinue reading “A Totally Biased Review of Anne With an E”

Meagan Reads YA Sci-Fi: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Read this book for the 26 book reading challenge I started a couple of years ago and am still chugging through for the category “a book set in summer.” The whole novel takes place in Portland, Maine in the summer before a life-changing event takes place in the main character’s life. Quick summary that includesContinue reading “Meagan Reads YA Sci-Fi: Delirium by Lauren Oliver”

Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

I’m going into my third year of the 26 book reading challenge (I’m a slow reader–sue me). For book 17, “a book by an author you love,” I went with Cinda Williams Chima’s The Demon King since I loved her Heir series. A quick rundown of the story. It follows the lives of two characters: Raisa,Continue reading “Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima”

Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

As part of the 26 book reading challenge I’ve been participating in for about a year now (I’m such a slow reader these days), I chose to read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte for the category “a book that’s over 10 years old.” A quick summary of the novel: Jane Eyre is an orphan growingContinue reading “Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte”
