Woah.

My oh my. This book. Just as amazing as the first, if not better. I was so stunned and overwhelmed, that I don't think I will be okay until the next one is out. I mean, people, this book don't mess around with your feelings. I'd like...

A Job from Hell

I only got this book because it was free for Kindle. The synopsis sounded interesting, so I figured why not. However, if I would've had any clue that it was about vampires, I woulda ignored it. I believe I am worn out on vampires. They've been done and ruined...

Something Witchy

Very seldom is a book so good that I wouldn’t mind if it was somehow made into a series. Characters I like so much that I would love to explore their world some more. Something Witchy This Way Comes was exactly that! I’d love to have more time with...

Shiver

I really enjoyed this book! It was sweet and to the point. Sam and Grace are great characters, and I'm excited to read more into this series. I really liked Jack and Isobel. Although, I could have done without Olivia and Rachel. They both annoyed me. I'm interested...

As You Were

I generally try to avoid book series of any kind. Usually I know what direction they will take and they tend to be all over the place, and too much of a good thing can get old. Sometimes the first book will be great and the rest are horrible. Or...

Divergent

I like big books, y’all. Big, thick hardbacks or paperbacks with lots of adjectives and page turning twists. So how could I pass up Divergent? Divergent is chockablock full of excitement. Everything is constantly a rush of anticipation at what Tris/Beatrice would get herself into next. Or where Four/Tobias...

My favorite.

By far, my favorite out of the series! Every little thing about this movie is absolutely perfect. Keep in mind, I have not read the book yet. And I know when I do, this particular tale will become even more awesome! The games are so interesting. With every...

good.

Probably, if I had to, I would say this is my least favorite of the Harry Potter films. Now, I haven't read the book yet, so maybe it is more interesting than the movie. To me, it wasn't very memorable. I can tell you I know it is about...

Okay.

Maybe it’s because I am not a 16 year old boy, but I really don’t see the hype for The Catcher in the Rye. First off, Holden talks in circles. He constantly repeats things. Yeah, I get it. You smoke too much so you run out of breathe faster....

Great!

So, so many cool things happen in this movie! The effects get better, as does the acting! Harry, Ron, and Hermione find themselves in their second year at Hogwarts and undercover even more answers about Voldemort. I'm not gunna lie, I had a huge crush on Tom Riddle during...

Great!

Finally at 21 years of age, I get the chance to read this! I've been waiting for quite some time. A time when I could read them back to back, with no interruptions. And that time is now! I loved all the movies, so I was pretty sure I'd love...

LOVE!

When these movies first came out, I wasn't allowed to watch them. That quickly changed after my mom saw, and fell in love, with the Harry Potter series. To a kid, this movie is memorizing. It is full of magic and perfectly astonishing. Needless to say, I still feel...

August Rush

Music is my first love. It follows me everywhere I go, and I willingly let it. There is something about August Rush that I completely connected with. There is so much heart and soul in this film, that I become an emotional wreck ever time I watch it. ...

wow.

It is easy to say that this book is unforgetable. Because it really is. I will never in this lifetime forget The Book Thief. It's the other words to describe my feelings toward this book that I find hard to think about. Heartbreakingly beautiful. Hauntingly spledid. Mesmorizingly stunning. ...

Shadowland

I confess: I have an addiction to bargain shopping. And a book sale is my kryptonite. Which is how I got my hands on the first three books in The Immortals series. Now, I rather enjoyed the first one. The story was something new, and if you can...
