The Setting is Stunning...The Plot is Heart-Racing...The Book is...ONE OF THE BEST OF 2010

This book had been out a while since i finally bought it. I did not think it would be very good, because City of Bones was not my favorite book and i had not yet continued the series and come to LOVE IT!!! But the minute i started this book...

Divergent is...is...EVERYTHING!

The teen book shelves have been littered with the life-after-our-world, or dystopian, books, who try to capture a world as real feeling as our own, and try to top the HUNGER GAMES Trilogy. I’ve never liked many of these wannabes, and i liked the premise of DIVERGENT, but still was...

Great Beginning, Slow Middle, AMAZING END!

I have to say i was disapointed by MATCHED, what with its promising plot and interesting beginning. The first three chapters were stupendous, introducing the well-fleshed-out Cassia Reyes and Xander and her family, the great Matching sequence that i found oddly interesting. And as time went on, the book seemed...

Not the Hunger Games...But AMAZING!

The first chapter of THE WATER WARS by Cameron Stratcher was bad…horribly bad and hard to pound through! I thought about returning the book to the library for lack of interest. Vera sounded like the normal-girl-dropped-into-an-interesting-world plot, and i thought she’d just fall for the boy and desperately run after...

Second Best Installment...THRILLING!

WARNING! There are no spoilers in this review, but this is the FOURTH BOOK in the Gone Series. The first three are GONE, HUNGER, and LIES, and now PLAGUE! PLAGUE opens perfectly, starting off eerily as usual. It’s been eight months since every adult disappeared, leaving out hero Sam...

Creepy...Eerie...Shocking...AMAZING!

My Review: Let me start by saying the mystery of the novel ended up being slightly disapointing, but there are tons of things that the marvelous author Lisa McMann did to make Cryer’s Cross one of the best books of 2011! The first thing i thought when...
