Thankfully, however, “Gone” manages to be just about as good as I remember. Sure, there are some things that irk me, and they had enough of a presence in my reading experience that I was forced to give this one a relatively mediocre score, rather than the perfect five stars that I had hoped to bestow. But what Grant does right far outshines the little issues, and that makes this book worthwhile, despite its flaws.
Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This is the story of a quirky girl and her eccentric family, of wealth and obsession, of magic and the need to belong to something bigger. It’s a very eclectic novel, filled with a number of elements that manage to mesh together in a way that feels comfortable and natural.
Review: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
“The Thirteenth Tale” is not a bad book. Unfortunately, neither is it a great one. It is a novel that contains a great concept and some wonderful ideas, but does little with them.

Review: A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
This is a piece of literature that, like its predecessor, requires a great deal of time and effort from its reader. Also like its predecessor, thankfully, it’s well worth the investment.
Review: Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
Adrienne Fray reviews Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev. She may or may not have read Shakespeare before, but that didn’t deter her from mildly enjoying the novel.

Review: A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Somehow, Martin manages to take all of these pieces and make a cohesive whole. It all ties together wonderfully, and I’m at a loss as to how he manages to do it so well. Naturally, there are a lot of loose ends left after things draw to a close, yet it stands as a compliment to Martin’s storytelling ability that I wanted to pick up the sequel the moment that I finished the first installment.
Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray
Cuddlebuggery’s newest reviewer, Adrienne Fray, reviews The Diviners by Libba Bray.
Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
That rare book that deserves the titling of “novel,” David Mitchell’s work is an ambitious piece of literature that manages to tell a wide-reaching story without once losing its focus.
Review: Die For Me by Amy Plum
Kat Kennedy doesn’t really review Die For Me by Amy Plum. But, instead she takes a deep, scholarly look into the underlying themes and messages of the novel and how that reflects on humanity as whole and in our every day lives. Haha. Not really.
