Doll Bones (2013)
language
English
3.74 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: As many other reviewers have said this book was one of those coming of age stories that can appeal to a much younger audience. I can see second and third graders wanting to read it although the teenage change in gender relationships my not yet (hopefully) apply to them. The dol...

review 1: Welcome to Bordertown is a smart, original work as well as an excellent addition to the relatively homogenous genre of urban fantasy. Like the other Bordertown stories, this anthology addresses a number of widespread topics in wonderfully creative ways. In particular, the themes ...

review 1: There are various stories in the book and some appealed to me but in general, I didn't love the entire collection. The comics in between stories are amusing and I could relate with some of them. I guess it's amusing enough but I probably would only recommend it to friends who a...

review 1: I did enjoy this book. I found the concept interesting. I did struggle with the man character Cassel as I found him shallow. I couldn't quite get a grip on his personality (other than he was always trying to be dishonourably honourable.) Lila was also an enigma. The brothers were...

review 1: Strangely, I finished this in only 2 sittings but was less satisfied with this book than the previous two. The story was much more disjointed & I'm not sure I understood the purpose of the entire Mina plotline. I'm not even sure I liked the ending that much. Even the diamond p...

review 1: This book was witty, beautiful and a great read. I loved how author were to pick a choice, zombie or unicorn and write a story supporting their chosen one and making it seem better than the other. I was confused on weather the author was to write a story including both or not. I ...

review 1: 3.5 stars.Holly Black likes mystical creatures, glitzy and kooky clothes, tough homeless teenaged girls, underaged drinking, gay boys, dirty cities, young people who outwit magical folk, and heat; it was really neat to see her explore stories and settings outside (although not in...

review 1: This is my first novel from Holly Black – although I have heard good things about “The Coldest Girl in Coldtown” – and I loved it. A beautifully twisted fairy tale, easily readable and intriguing for the young and old alike (not THAT young, this is not for children!) and the auth...

review 1: Full disclosure, listened to this on audiobook, as I do more and more these days. Looking back on the book, I suppose that I'm not really the target demographic. It could be that this is YA, and probably targeted toward young women instead of men. (And by "Targeted" I'm mostly ta...
Red Glove (2011)

English

review 1: 3.5 stars — pretty good for a bridge book. I really enjoy Cassel, and Jesse is great at capturing his voice in the narration (fact: I can't unsee Jesse as Cassel in the as-yet-to-be-made movie, and that's not a bad thing). I keep hoping Barron is going to redeem himself as a big ...

review 1: Black, Holly. Kin (also Kith and Kind). Rue's mother has disappeared and her father just sits in his chair and doesn't respond to her anymore. Rue soon discovers that she can see things that others can't, and in fact she is half fairy. Her mother, a full fairy, has returned to...

review 1: Sono un pò in difficoltà nel recensire questa trilogia, perché il mio giudizio cambia mano a mano che passiamo dal primo al terzo volume. 1° LIBRO: voto quasi QUATTRO STELLINE. La trama è molto originale, la scrittura è meticolosa, dettagliata, fluida anche se complessa. Il mo...

review 1: So, now I've finished the last book in the Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles series and... well, it was okay. But honestly, what I liked most about it was that the main characters of the first series were in this one as well because I simply adore Jared and I'm very fond of the ot...

review 1: I wish I could give this book a 4 star review but there were a couple stories that just weren't AWESOME - and therein lies the problem with anthologies. Like a sampler plate of food, everything might be good but juxtaposing the awesome with the good makes the good seem kind of me...

review 1: This is the only vampire YA novel I shall ever need.
review 2: This was so much more fun than I expected it to be. Literally cannot wait for the next instalment.

review 1: The end of this wonderful series, this one sends it out with a bang as Rue struggles with internal feelings that pull her in every which direction before making the choice that she feels is best.----------- Fairies and humans are not alike. Sure, fairies can make themselves look...

review 1: I picked up this series on a whim while at the library this week. I hadn't read anything about the series prior to that but was intrigued by the possibility of a good faerie story.Let's start with what I enjoyed about these books: the inclusion of many different faerie folk and a...

review 1: After reading an Alice in Wonderland manga before this it made me dislike the graphics. I read in someone else's review that they thought the graphics were ugly and they didn't match from one page to the next. This is a faery story so there are a lot of creatures and the majority...

review 1: I live in an old house that is full of random items. Since it isn't my house, and I'm only staying temporarily, I don't have a say in the junk. However, one day I found this book just sitting on a pile of rusted metal and crushed soda cans. I have no idea where it came from. I pi...
Die Rache des Wyrm (2009)

review 1: A satisfying resolution to the "Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles" series, and the notes in the back say that it is the end of the Spiderwick books as a whole. The authors probably made a good decision about this. The Wyrm King ends up being an allegory about ecological balance an...

review 1: *sigh* Where to begin?...Well, this is the third and final installment of this bizarre little spin-off series, and unfortunately, the best thing that can be said about the whole affair is that at least it's a quick read. As I feared, this book made the second one entirely unnec...

review 1: Awww, its over :-(The last book of The Spiderwick Chronicles was fantastic! Filled with adventure, love, and the importance of family, I read the whole thing in a day. I loved all the characters Black and DiTerlizzi created for this series of books and I also loved how The Spider...

review 1: I have to say, I was a let down... When I read the description, I was expecting a high paced, slightly scary thrilling novel about a possessed doll. Instead, I got a not so high paced story with hints of scariness thrown in their and a mystery of a doll that isn't ever really sol...
