Hey At Least They’re Not Always Mini Right Now // Mini-Reviews

Up to This Pointe (Jennifer Longo) | Goodreads | 4 stars I did ballet for two years back in 4th and 5th grade (and a little bit when I was about 3 or so, but I don’t think that really counts), but I was never on the same level as Harper and her best friend, that’s for … More Hey At Least They’re Not Always Mini Right Now // Mini-Reviews

A Thousand And One Tales of Magic and Intrigue // The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Aw, this beautiful Middle Eastern fantasy – even when you have your problems, you’re a beautiful little story. This sequel didn’t quite live up to my expectations of the spectacular The Wrath and the Dawn, but that’s simply the difference between a stellar 4.5 star debut and a pretty fantastic 4 star sophomore effort. < pro … More A Thousand And One Tales of Magic and Intrigue // The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Once Upon a Beautiful Picture // The Retelling Challenge

Yeah, I’m horrible about responding to the various posts that Mel at The Daily Prophecy has posted related to her challenge, but I have been reading books for it! Anyway, one of her posts from months ago had something to do with pictures (I think – this draft has been sitting around for a long time), and … More Once Upon a Beautiful Picture // The Retelling Challenge
