About Author

  • Brenda Drake Post author

    Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical When Brenda s not writing or doing the social media thing, she s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic much to her disappointment.

  • Well that was spectacularly not good I feel like I just read some very bad City of Bones fanfickete, this was so so similar I m going to hesitantly say it was blurring the line of inspired by Woah And honestly It was just so cliche that it was kind of a shock I CAME HERE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME IN LIBRARIES, BUT I JUST GOT HOT PARANORMAL BOYS AND A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE GIRL AND NO BOOKWORM APPRECIATION AT ALL.WHY I AM NOPE FOR THIS BOOK The writing felt so awkward From the first paragraph I had a suspi [...]


  • 4.5 Well, starting of this is such a unique idea for a story I really love the abundance of different magical beings that was so good.I love the idea of these people being able to jump through books libraries to different realms I LOVED the idea of magical orbs, each different powers for different people and how when you through them you can control an element or powerA really grew in this story, such a great character who really came into her own I also liked that the romance was NOT over beari [...]

  • Updated Review After Re Read Thief of Lies was addicting and completely entertaining And I m so glad that I re read this book You see, the first time I picked this up, I struggled connecting to the characters The story was so much fun, but I never felt as though I was fully immersed until Bastien appeared on the pages, and well I ll talk about him later But this time around, it all clicked into place I was so happy because Thief of Lies was an adorable story filled with adventure and magic And [...]


  • It s just a pile of tropes that read like some bad Shadowhunters fanfic except it s sexist, cliche, vaguely racist, and generally obnoxious To start with, the tone was way, way off Gia either read as super young or like a middle aged woman who had read the plots of too many bad romance novels Either way, she didn t sound like a realistic human teen Ehhh ok nevermind I could type out a long list of where this book went wrong, but I think all of the other reviewers already covered the exact points [...]


  • Wish you could visit all the libraries in the world Wouldn t it be incredible to go from library to library, all in the drop of eye So what better way to travel than by book But wait would a broody guy to accompany you who also looks good in leather I might add, sweeten the deal How about a magical prophecy, impending doom, evil creatures at every turn but you can kick ass with your new found magical abilities If the booknerd in you is screaming to get out then welcome to your next read, Thief o [...]


  • DNF 27% because it s boring AFThis book, I must say got one of the coolest premise ever I mean, Jumping into some of the world s most beautiful libraries is definitely every bookish people s dream, so reading about this kind of story line is a big yes turns out, this thing is too good to be true, pun intended.The story started when Gia and her friends visited a library for a homework or something I can t really bothered to remember why Gia then bump into a super handsome and gorgeous looking guy [...]



  • DNF I am really and I mean really tired of posting full reviews for DNF s So I ve decided to type a mini review While I was reading this I felt that it was very childish And I know that says something because I ve read quite a few MG books But this felt very childish compared to all the MG books that I ve read.I recommend this to fantasy fans.


  • Buddyread with Melissa DNF at 51% Rating is just for what I ve read so far I think halfway is enough for me to do that 2 stars for execution and writing, 2.5 for the idea of the library jumping and creatures magic.The idea of this world intrigued me and yes the library jumping part is what first hooked me but the way everything was handled left me underwhelmed Also got tired of hearing how hot and other terms Arik was from Gia and before any naysayers complain it was because I felt like I was ge [...]

  • ARC Kindly provided by Netgalley and Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review Generally, I rate a book 2 stars when it misses that something special to impress me In this case, the situation is precisely the other way around, though.This book starts from a cool premise that any booklover will adore Gia, you can never be lonely in the company of books and presents many original and interesting ideas The problem is that Thief of Lies is saturated with too, too many different ideas, all of t [...]


  • Can I just that I loved this book Gia is a strong, determined, and observant character who loves books and libraries, but who also has won many awards in fencing When she sees a guy in leather gear disappear from the reading room at the Boston Anthen um, she s quick to investigate and unwittingly sends her and her friends through one of the gateway books to a library in Paris So much to love about this book, but I especially loved how relatable Gia is and how well developed the world is without [...]


  • Rating 4.5 5Having participated in the cover reveal for the sequel to this book, I was intrigued enough to want to read this one and what a surprise it turned out to be I m not quite sure what I expected, but I certainly hadn t anticipated it being such an enthralling page turner It is a YA fantasy in which Gia Kearns is in the Boston Athenaeum with her two best friends when the hottie she d been looking at suddenly disappears right in front of her As she doesn t believe this is possible, she go [...]


  • 2,5 stars What I loved I loved the idea of the book It was promising in the beginning, but not impressive in the end Humor I did found some pretty funny lines and dialogues Batiste He was the only character I liked Others were underdeveloped or too pretentious Libraries What I found cliche insta love and love triangle No, two love triangles The romance is ridiculously unbelievable the overuse of the word sexy made me want to hit something I was overwhelmed by so many events and plot twists You c [...]
