Archive Spotlight | The Floating Island by Elizabeth Haydon

Continuing with the children’s fantasy theme I’ve accidentally got going on this week, this archive spotlight is on The Floating Island by Elizabeth Haydon. I originally reviewed it on January 27, 2010, with a rating of 4.5/5! Probably what I like best about The Floating Island is how the world, and the narrative, feel like these massive exciting landscapes that need desperately to be explored. And they need to be explored by the wonderful protagonist, Read More …

Archive Spotlight | Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway

I originally reviewed Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway on May 17, 2012. I got it on NetGalley for review, mostly because it seemed like it was sort of like Kat, Incorrigible (the cover!). I mean, I DID have a great time reading it. But I can barely remember anything about it! I’ve just got some feelings of warm/fuzzy-ness and slight horror, which according to my notes is because it’s a) a very cute book and Read More …

Archive Spotlight | A Chalice of Wind by Cate Tiernan

I originally reviewed A Chalice of Wind by Cate Tiernan on February 28, 2009. I probably just bought it because of the cover, to be honest, but the story itself didn’t seem too bad, either. BUT THEN So, yeah, this is COMPLETELY PREDICTABLE. I mean, c’mon, twins separated at birth with magical powers? It’s nearly as common as the seventh son of a seventh son being awesomely powerful. However, like every other time I’ve run Read More …

Archive Spotlight (8) | A Crack in the Line by Michael Lawrence

I originally reviewed A Crack in the Line on January 20, 2010. It’s about two kids living in parallel dimensions and there’s lots of nifty sci-fi/emotional development stuff. Naia is a great heroine. She’s strong and smart, and while she keeps pushing Alaric emotionally she also knows when to back off and let him breathe. I wish she had been able to do more, though. She seems to have had more of the science-y, theorizing Read More …

Archive Spotlight (7) | A Desirable Residence

Both Memory and Fyrefly have been doing sort of “retro review” posts lately and I find that HIGHLY inspiring. As in, I wanna do it, too! My older reviews occasionally get a bit of love (mostly from Google searches) and it might be interesting to drag forth my early reviewing efforts into the spotlight. Especially now that I’ve been blogging for four years! I’m planning on doing one of these every week or so. This Read More …
