Wallace the Brave by Will Henry // ARC Review

Wallace the Brave is such an adorable little book! I think its target audience is around 8-12 (I am positive my 9- and 11-year old brothers will find it hilarious), but I’m a teenager and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m sure some older teens and adults would find it too juvenile, but I found it very entertaining, so I think it just depends on your reading preferences. It’s definitely a very light, funny read—there isn’t a whole lot of plot, but I’m okay with that, really. It’ the kind of graphic novel you sit down with when you’re tired and need something to cheer you up.


#TheReadingQuest Wrap-Up

I did it! I completed the Reading Quest! I did not read as many books as I'd hoped, but I still had a lot of fun, which is the most important part, right? Hopefully I'll have better luck next time...and I sincerely hope there is a next time, because I would be so thrilled if Aentee @ Read and Midnight were to run another challenge like this one! I am super pumped that she mentioned that she's planning one for the holiday season, especially because I always read a ton over winter break.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir | Review

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free. Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.
