Really great!

At first, I was quite reluctant to read this book, for I was prejudiced with the idea that it the story was similar to Incarceron, a book I didn't really quite get. You see, the idea of both books are quite similar, from my point of view, and so I...

Finally, not vamps!

This book from Sophie Jordan was just amazing. I couldn't get it out of my mind. It moved me. But the ending tore my heart apart. Characters : My favorite character of all would be Will. Charming, nice Will. He was perfect for Jacinda. I couldn't wait for...

Great dystopian!

Veronica Roth takes us, readers, in the future Chicago where when you are 16 years old, you need to choose one of the five factions; Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful) and Erudite(the intelligent). Somehow, I tended to be an Erudite or a Dauntless....

Pretty good!

I am not a big fan of werewolves book; only the great book called Nightshade, but this book was really good. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I liked Hawthrone's writing a lot; the way she had me wrapped me in her little fingers just after the ten first pages. ...

Sooo great!

It's been about a month since I've read this book, but it's been calling to me; Review me... please... review me... So you understand why I had to. Some people say this book was slow. But it wasn't. It just had many details in every scene, making it easier...

Lovely!

Amazuperific (mix of amazing-super-terrific)!! I thought the book was great, but since I'd read Clockwork Angel, I thought it was a bit the same. I found the writing rather enjoyable; slow, detailed, but still great! Jace was a lot like Will Herondale (character in Clockwork Angel, which I recommend...

I mean, who wouldn't do a happy dance after hearing that one of their favorite authors is doing a spin-off from one of your favorite series (in this case Vampire Academy!)....
