You haven't lived until you've read this book!

This book simply blew my mind! Before I get into my review, I would just like to thank the author, Johan Harstad, for developing such an amazing story line. The plot is absolutely, as stated before, mind-blowing! The imagery, the settings, the characters: OMG! Alright, I really need to stop...

Awesome Sequel!

I can honestly say that the Scorch Trials kind of pissed me off. Not the book. The ACTUAL Scorch Trials IN the book. I don't think I understand the concept behind it yet. I just finished The Death Cure and STILL don't get why they had to experience those variables....

More Than I Expected!

Everybody has been ranting and raving about this book and after reading the summary about it, I knew it would intrigue me. It's supposed to be an ironic paranormal romance which made me slightly nervous because I honestly thought it would be cheesy and not my type of read. Don't...

More than I expected!

Everybody is always ranting and raving about the awesomeness that is in the works of James Dashner's 'The Maze Runner'. So, when I walked into my library and saw it sitting there calling my name, I had to pick it up. The cover is boring when you first look at...

Crazy dejavu of the 90's!

I can honestly say I adored this book! The year is 1996 and the authors made it seem so realistic. They take you back to when we were all just starting to get home computers or envying over the fact that our neighbors had one and we didn't. I was...

Could have been alot better!

This book wasn't anything special. I mean, don't get me wrong, the idea behind the book could have made an amazing story, given more thought and time for writing. A really great thing about this book is that it doesn't drag on and on at the beginning. It gets straight...

Great Sequel!

"Awake At Dawn" is the second installment in the Shadow Falls series. I was a huge fan of the first book, so although I was excited to know which direction the story went, I was nervous that the second book would just ruin it for me. That wasn't the case...

Absolutely Riveting!

Although I'm not providing spoilers for this book, if you have NOT read the first book in the series (Hex Hall), I highly advise that you DO NOT read this review! Alright, so if you're still reading this, I'm assuming that you've read...

My Favourite Book!

I just finished it. And, this may be my shortest review ever, but this is officially my favorite book of all time. Made me laugh. Made me cry. Made me cringe, because it all seemed so real. My heart is racing, and I'm still shaken by the whole last chapter....

What A Great Romance!

I must say, Stephanie Perkins has seriously outdone herself here. This book was absolutely amazing. I'm not one to read a teen romance without any magic involved. I picked up this book because of all the rave it was receiving from fellow YA bloggers. After getting into the first few...

Love This Series!

I totally can't wait until the 3rd book comes out! After reading 'Matched', you were probably like "What about Ky? Tell me more about this mysterious God!" Well, in 'Crossed', that's pretty much what the whole book is about. Ky, Ky, Ky. But, shall...

Heart-wrenching Story!

Wow. Just, wow. I read this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. The things that this girl experiences from the time she's kidnapped at 10 years old until the time she tells the story at age 15. While reading this book, I had that longing to...

First Book Was Sooo Much Better.

I can honestly say that I enjoyed the first book over this one by far. Aimee Carter still had me on edge, though. Kate's story continues when she returns to Eden Manor in the fall only to discover that an angry Titan is out to kill them all. So, ofcourse,...
