Double Review: The Winner’s Crime & The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski 

Hello, fellow bloggers!

I’m here on this lovely Friday to bring you another double review. I feel like they make a lot of sense for books in a series, especially if I read them in sussession. Plus, I already had this lovely picture of the two of them together, so why not take advantage of that? 😉


As you see from the title and photo, this will be a review of the last two books in the Winner’s trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. I read the first book in this trilogy, The Winner’s Curse, back at the beginning of the year, I think February or March, and I really loved it. I read it from start to finish in one sitting. It was a beautifully written story about two characters who are so stubborn you just want to smack their heads together, but you grow to love and respect them for different reasons. Here is the link to the Goodreads page for first book. I gave it a solid 5/5 stars. Now, on with the reviews!

Double Review: The Dream Thieves & Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Hello, blog peeps!

I’m realizing, while looking at my stats for this blog, that I haven’t been posting very regularly on here. Which I feel badly about. I guess I’ve just been so busy with life stuff that I sort of forget how many days go between posts. Time flies when you’re having fun, and sometimes when you’re not. 😉

Review: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Hello, hello!

I’ve been a bit on the busy side lately, so I apologize that my posting has suffered! But I’ve been finding little bits of time to get some solid reading in, which means a couple more review to come soon. 😉

Today, my review will be a short one about the first book in The White Rabbit Chronicles series, Alice in Zombieland. Here is the Goodreads page where you can read all about it. Now, if you love Alice in Wonderland and scifi like I do, you’re probably thinking this book sounds like the bombest of the bomb. A retelling of Alice falling down a zombie hole? Heck yes! However, that’s not really what this book was about. I read in another review on Goodreads that your expectations of this book can make it or break it for you. And I think that’s pretty true. The synopsis of this book is fairly vague, so it allows your imagination to run away with the title and create a world where a new Alice falls into an undead world of zombies and mayhem. At least, mine did. What my imagination didn’t expect was a story about a new Alice who lives in a completely mundane world, until her family is killed and she begins seeing zombie “spirits” that only a few other people can. Now, it’s not that I didn’t enjoy this novel, it’s that the actual plot just didn’t line up in my mind like I thought it would. Which made the first bit of the book kind of disappointing, if I’m honest. So, if you are interested in this book, be prepared for more of an urban fantasy than a twisty scifi. But since I did enjoy this book, let’s get into the good parts!

To start off, I really enjoyed Alice’s character. She was sassy and pretty kick-ass, even in
