    pipermc11's book review was featured in The Inquisitor's Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog.
    Have you ever wondered how fairy tales were formed? Look no further than The Inquisitor's Tale! I really enjoyed this, and it gave a unique perspective in how stories are written. Each of the characters were unique, such as Jeanne being influenced by Joan of Arc, as both are strong warriors. Jacob's motivation about family was especially important and was very real. I also loved Will's character, because he was so kind and passionate about his religion. The illustrations also brought a whole new level and helped me with the different characters. What I loved most about the book was how much the author made sure that the book was authentic. He did a lot of research to make sure that he was proud of the story, and I could tell he put a lot of hard work into writing this book! Overall, I would suggest this book for older readers who want to read about a more serious story that also has a great plot!

    Jack Sullivan was just a normal kid with a crush when his whole world was set upside down. I really liked this book, though it did have some faults. Firstly for the faults, was the world building. I loved that the book plopped us into the middle of the action, but I wish that there was more explanation, such as where were all the other kids, and it seemed slightly convenient that people that affected Jack's life were there. I also wasn't sure what to think of June's character. She was kind of stereotypical, and Jack had talked about her so much I guess I was expecting...more from her character. However, I loved Jack and his best friends, and I loved how they incorporated all the monsters into the story so seamlessly. Jack had a unique voice, along with his best friend, Quint, and I thought that they portrayed their friendship as well as most guys friendships well (or at least, from my perspective of a girl). Overall, I really liked this book and would recommend it to people who are looking for an action based and fast moving plot book!

    pipermc11's book review was featured in Hamster Princess: Harriet the Invincible.
    While I was skeptical at first about the premise of the book, because it was influenced so heavily from Sleeping Beauty, I ended up loving it! Harriet was such a strong character, and used the curse to her advantage, which was so unique and original for the author to do! I really enjoyed the villain character as well, she was very sarcastic and brought a lot of life to the story. I feel that this is a book that everyone can benefit from reading, and everyone will find something that they enjoy.

    This was rather long for a children's book, which is neither a good thing or a bad thing, just different. The main reason for this was because the universe was so large and dense that it took a very long time to explain the world in general. However, because the universe was so massive, there are many opportunities for the rest of the series to be even better than the first. My favorite part of the book by far was the characters. George was strong willed but not overbearingly so, Caleb was sweet and mysterious at the same time, and Milak was tiny but sarcastic and witty. These conflicting personalities and backstories was what made me intrigued. I also enjoyed the different elements of mythology or magic throughout the story and those backstories also intrigued me. However, I wished that there was a little more resolution for some of the main issues of the book, such as George's little brother. He was mentioned countless times throughout the story, but there is no resolution for his discovery by the end of the book other than basic information. I do understand that this is a trilogy, and this plot line was most likely drawn out for an even better ending of the last book in the trilogy. This was an awesome book overall, and I would definitely recommend it!
