Richelle Mead is my Vampire Queen

Bow to the Vampire Queen Richelle Mead! She did something I didn't expect at all. She made me love Sydney. I liked her before but after reading those steamy scenes with Adrian she showed me she is capable of changing. Her awkwardness and coldness made me laugh at loud...

I love Richelle Mead

Before I start writing the review I need to point something out. The cover for Bloodlines and The Golden Lily should be switched. Why? On every cover we have Sydney and someone else. So, IMO Jill should have been on the Bloodlines one and Adrian should be on the The...

So many wrong decision but I'll read the sequel

My Goodreads friend Stacia was right when she said this book was weird. I can’t even explain it how I felt about it. Did I like it or not? I’m really not sure. There were some things that caught my eye but there were some things that made me mad....

Didn't meet my expectations

*slightly spoilerish review* Even though it's doesn't take much effort for me to write negative reviews because it's easier for me to express those not so good things about a certain book. Believe me, I didn't wanted it to happen with The 5th Wave since I...

Bursting with action

Who knew this would be such a fun and entertaining book? When I started reading it I didn't expect much but it grew on me. First of all,there aren't many books about aliens out there. So far,I've only read two: I Am Number 4 and Obsidian(which...

Wasn't for me

This whole book was a moment of great frustration. Since I didn’t have any (high) expectations I thought everything would be fine. I would get a creepy mystery about some dead dude. The girl would try and figure out who actually did kill him and everyone would apologize to her...

I'm not really sure how I feel about this book

This is one confusing book. I had no idea how to feel about it, well, I still don't. I'm not sure what to think of the main character. Should I sympathize with Adrienne? Mostly I don't understand why was she so upset when Dakota disappeared. Adrienne...

Cuteness overload

Every now and then I stumble upon a book which makes me melt into a sweet puddle what used to be a cotton candy. It's not gross so don't give me that face! In fact, it's just the best thing one could read after being emotional drained by some other...

Notes From Ghost Town

The story starts of with Olivia and Lucas-best friends, being cute and flirty, which escalated into a make-out session. Olivia ends up color blind, which is a huge deal because she is an artist. Lucas mistakes her reaction as a rejection and he fled the scene. They don’t talk for...

Wow!

Perfection. There were so many things I liked about this book. I don’t think I’ll be able to write this review if I don’t just name them separately. Main character- I have to admit, I have a crush on Cassel from the moment he appeared shirtless...

Cute but forgettable

The Almost Truth was the first Eileen Cook book I’ve read so I didn’t know what to expect. Cover and synopsis are deceiving. I thought it will be something like Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott and Heist Society by Ally Carter but the whole storyline was revolving around Sadie’s identity...

How to write a YA sci-fi dystopian novel

Before I start reviewing this book I need to point something out. This book came out more than a year ago and that's how long it's been sitting on my shelf collecting dust. I could kick myself for not picking it up sooner but I guess, back then, I wasn't...

insight on Angela's character

I'm torn between giving 4 or 5 stars. I loved it so much. First Destroy Me and now Radiant! You people are trying to kill me! This is mostly Angela’s story but we also have Clara’s POV. We get to see how they spent their...

Oh, wow. This book has made a lasting impression on me. First of, the main character, Angie is one heck of a girl! She caught her best friend sleeping with her boyfriend on prom night and turned her back on both of them. She doesn't seem...

Captivating from the start

Don't know what it is but I feel like I give higher ratings to books I own in print. I'm actually positive. It must be because of that wonderful book smell and page flipping. So. How to start this thing? You know those love triangle books...
