Cress by Marissa Meyer (5 stars)


A lot of fun with a great cast of characters. Sci-fi fantasy fairytale retellings done well. It doesn't get much better.


The Demon's Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan

  The Demon's Lexicon (4 stars) 

  The Demon's Covenant (5 stars) 

  The Demon's Surrender (4 stars)


GAH THIS SERIES. Lots of kissing and also angst, but oh the emotions. These two brothers couldn't rip my hearts out anymore, I swear.


Seeking Persephone by Sarah M. Eden (4 stars)


So much cuteness! Think Beauty and The Beast meets a slightly Georgette Heyer Regency romance feel.


Delilah Dirk and The Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff (4 stars)


A charming graphic novel, complete with lovable characters and beautiful illustrations. The atmosphere and settings were also lovely, and not something that is generally seen in the literary world here, or at least, not wherever I'm looking.


Joan of Arc by Mark Twain (4 stars)


A well-written classic actually deserving of that title. Definitely Twain's best, out of those  that I've read.


The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (5 stars)


Just really brilliant and full of important points to ponder.


The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud (4 stars)


Not as good as the first book in the series, but still a good installment and lots of fun hanging out  with Lockwood and Co. Oh, and all the ghosts too.


The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce (5 stars)


One of the best children's books I've ever read, and it helps that it's a bibliomaniac's dream come true.
