Lair of Dream Book Review


I finished Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray last week and let me tell you that is hefty book. It’s a darker story taking place in New York in the 1920’s and follows a special group of people called Diviners who have special powers to fight an evil taking over the city known as the sleeping sickness. It’s a little dark and there is a lot going on, but it was good. There are a number of characters to remember and I struggled to remember what happened to them in the first novel, but Libba Bray is a very good author and I was easily caught up in the book and what was happening to the city and the characters.

I am a big fan of the Gemma Doyle Trilogy and my favorite part was Evie and Sam seeing Gemma, even if it was just in passing.

Overall it was good and a book I would recommend. I can’t wait for the next one to be released.


Just A Note

Can I just say that as a Librarian there is nothing better than hearing a child (any patron, but especially a child) gasp in joy over a book and become seriously excited.

It’s the best thing to hear.

Winter by Marissa Meyer


I finally finished Winter by Marissa Meyer last night and I thought it was great. I picked up the first book in this series last year and I have enjoyed how light it was compared to some other YA series I was reading. The Science Fiction Fairy Tail twist was an interesting as well. I found that I enjoyed all of the characters and felt that the author did well at adapting their storylines.

Overall I found this series quiet enjoyable and am sad that it is over.
