Perfect!

Alright warning time. As with most books that I read, this has been labeled problematic. Though this one is completely unfounded. Someone read a small part and took it out of context. I will explain more after the review. Guys!!!!!!!! I can't begin to put into words...

Sick of Double Standards

This is going to be more like a rant/review than just a review. I am honestly proud that I finished this book, it was so boring and needlessly long. I can sum up the book in one paragraph yet it's 436 pages long. I was so bored. So the book...

AMAZING!

First off... that freaking cliffhanger!? I can't even... I could not imagine having read this the year it came out and then waiting for the third to come out. That is full on torture! That is why I dock this half a star. Now moving on, most...

Loved This!

It's great! What I love the most is how dark and gritty the world felt. It was so cool because most of this book takes place in our world and yet it still feels darker. The author does a great job at world building. One of the best examples...

Reread

So the Nerd Herd is now underground and hiding away from Kalona. Aphrodite and Stevie-Rae have imprinted, Stark is an evil rapist, and Erik went from sweet guy to way too possessive. Not to mention that Kalona can reach Zoey in her dreams... so lots of drama. Nothing is ever...

So this one picks up right where the other left off and don't worry if you haven't read the others in a while, this books spends the most time playing catch up. It will tell you ever major detail of the last books and even some of the minor books....

Reread

This one picks up not far where Marked left off. Zoey is now in charge of the Daughters of Darkness. Aphrodite is now old news and her 'evil' ways are done. Even Neferet has said that the Goddess has taken away Aphrodite's gift of seeing the future... or has she?...

DNF

DNF PAGE 133 - I hate DNFing a book. I hardly ever do it. I personally feel like I'm giving up when I DNF. I know other people do it all the time and there is nothing wrong with that. We are all different and that's something awesome. I'm not...

Truthers

So, I've said before that for some reason I love conspiracy theories. Do I believe any of them? No. I don't but they are interesting to look up. So when I saw this one on NetGalley, I had to get it. I learned nothing new from it but someone who...

Twists and Turns Everywhere!

Eric only wanted to let some stress go and maybe troll some of his followers on Twitter. Even never even thought that maybe one of his fans would understand him. He never thought he'd end up falling for her. I enjoyed this novel a lot. It had...
