Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

Such an epic conclusion to an amazing trilogy! I love how well the story wrapped up and how we don't get a completely happily ever after.  This is my favourite book of the series, which is unusual for me, as I tend to love the first one the best. It's action scene after action scene. So much happens, but not too fast where you are wondering what happened, why or how. It was extremely hard to put down, so I just flew through it.  There were a ton of emotions that ran through me in this book. Happiness, grief, anger,...

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch Book Review

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

Book 2 of the Snow Like Ashes trilogy takes your across multiple Kingdoms, while Meira tries to find a way to get out of underneath the debt of Cordell, and keep her Kingdom free.

I felt like each Kingdom visited could have had more page time and each quest (for lack of better term while trying to avoid spoilers) wouldn't have been completed so quickly. It was pretty anticlimactic, and everything seemed way too...

Best Opening Lines

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

As a reader, an opening line or paragraph really sets the tone for me. Give me something that will hook me right from the get go and make me want to read it. Here are some of my favorite opening lines. 1. Dread Nation by Justina Ireland "The day I cam squealing and squalling into the world was the first time someone tried to kill me. I guess it should have been obvious to everyone right then that I wasn't going to have a normal life." Ok. I mean... wow. I need to know more. 2. The Darker Shade of...

How Well Do I Know My Books? - Book Challenge

Posted by Chelsea Poff on

So this is going to be interesting! This Challenge was created by Jesse the Reader on Youtube.  HOW IT WORKS: Using numbers to lead you to specific books on your bookshelf, see if you can answer the following questions about the books without looking them up! I have 5 cases and 5-6 shelves on each case. But some shelves don't have books so I will just loop back around until I get the that number. I will do the same with the books if I don't have that many books on the same shelf. I also used google random number...
