Light fluffy YA romance novel in a fantasy setting. I went had no prior expectations of what it would be like and enjoyed it. I don't understand the comparison to Hunger Games on the cover though. There really aren't any similarities…

Despite this being a book for the "younger" amongst us, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I devoured it. It definitely gives you pause to think about your OWN life, our inner Tella and Scarlett, and our lives, and situations in our lives…

I love this world of magic and it's only the beginning. The line between reality and imagination is so thin and blurred. There are very few rules in this world and everything comes at a cost that can't be paid in money. The relationship…

This book has become one of my favorite books of all time because it was so engrossing!!! Caraval follows the story of a responsible, somewhat uptight character named Scarlet and her quest to find and save her sister, Donatella, by…

This is truly the most magical book I’ve ever read in my life. I binge-read the entire series in two days. Caraval is a wild experience for both the characters and readers alike. It’s Gillian Flynn meets Lewis Carroll….well sort of. Once I…

I'm really glad that I can say I really enjoyed this book. I read it at a super busy time and sometimes that's hard because I couldn't sit down and just read, and it made the middle third seem a lot slower than it probably actually was,…

This book was full of such magical whimsy. But it was dark. I loved pretty much every bit of it. I instantly fell for the characters and wanted the romance to work with every fiber of my being. At times Caraval felt like a fantastical…

A wonderful, unique book. Despite being set in the third person, I felt like I knew Scarlett very well. Twists and turns kept you guessing at every page. Reminded me a little of Alice in Wonderland, but more-so a grown-up version of Enid…

This book was such a disappointment. The protagonist Scarlet is a very flat, tell-don't-show character, and the "villains" are lifeless. The word crafting can be lovely, but nothing can dress up a such a bland, predictable cast of…
