Read this Now!

Pea doesn't have an easy life. Her family is very dysfunctional and she's struggling with an eating disorder and all that comes with it. Depression, anxiety, and she even dabbles in self harm. I'd never even heard of her eating disorder until this book. Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder is something...

Wow!

I have spent a week trying to put together a coherent review for this book and I've still got nothing. All I want to do is fangirl over it's amazingness. This book, this series, took my breath away. It's on a playing field all on it's own. ...

Blown Away!

Why is there so much hate for this book?! I don't understand! My mind can't compute why everyone is not in love with this book! It's great. It's a bit slow to start but once it picks up... I could not stop reading. I read it mostly in one day....

AMAZING!

Check out my other reviews on my blog: The Butterfly Reader Jayden is so much stronger in this novel! I can't even believe how much better she's gotten! I'm so proud of her. She's still in so much trouble and nothing really gets better for her. I...

WOW!

So I started reading this series because I wanted something different from the normal and I got that. I love the setting and Ive never read a book from the time setting this takes place. I think it's around the time of the Biblical Abraham. I love how I felt...

AMAZING!

I want to start off by praising the diversity in this book! Our girl Maddy is Asian and African American mixed. I've not seen that done in any books and I loved it! I also love that her nurse Carla is from Mexico. I love the interracial couples in this...

Check out my blog for more reviews: http://sweetcherry69.blogspot.com/ No! No! NO! Why does she lose her powers? Why does she get with Mal? Why does the Darkling have to die?! I mean the prince was the best choice out of the two left even though I'm one...

It Could Have Been Great

This book reminds me a lot of Anna and the French Kiss, without all the hot bits. This book is so clean I'd say any age can read it. We follow Grace, a girl from Nashville TN, which made me love her right off the bat as Nashville is my...

Seth

I remember reading this when it first came out, it was everything I was looking for in a book, great plot, girl finding her own strength, and hot alternative guys. I fell in love with this dark world, the fairies and the power struggle. I recently reread this book and...

My Favorite so Far!

This book takes a time jump of six years, so now Evra is a young man while Darren looks around one year older. Thus they aren't as close as they used to be in the third book. Every twelve years, the Council meets at Vampire Mountain, and Mr. Crepsley has...

Vampires!

This installment is a lot more graphic than the first. There was a lot of foreshadowing, but I think it was necessary. This is one of the goriest children's books I've ever read. Mr. Crepsley decides to return to the Cirque Du Freak. Darren helps...

I received this book in exchange for an honest review* This book surprised me! I wasn't too sure what to think by the blurb, it sounded like a good read but then again it was so vague... but let me tell you now; this book is so...

Just Wow

This is one of the only series that does make me think and that sticks with me long after I've read it. This actually was my first time reading this installment. I've still never read the second, I don't plan to either. It's all just so sad and terrible but...

Cole...

This was better than the first installment. But sometimes Cole still bothered me a little. He broke up with her but was still all over her. He just rubs me the wrong way. He wouldn't listen to Ali about the visions at all. I still love...
