Ripped was one of those random finds that I discovered while browsing around for new books to read. Loving all things Jack The Ripper related I knew that, fiction or not, I had to check this book out. I ordered, waited and read as soon as I received it in...

Reality TV isn't really familiar to me, though it isn't completely unfamiliar either. With this book, I felt as though it was pretty much like reading a book based on a reality television... and I'm not talking about the part of the book that is indeed about a reality show....

THE IMMORTAL RULES, by Julie Kagawa, has to be the best book that I have read this year. At first a skeptic (Dystopian with a side of vampires? Yeah, I've seen that quite a few times!), the story quickly transformed me into a true believer. Though, to be honest, I...

From the very beginning, this story and it’s main character reads as early teen. Alex, our main character, seems to base her decisions early on in the book on what she thinks will make her “cool”, or get her a boyfriend. Thankfully, as the story goes along, Alex evolves from...

I’ll be honest and say that, even though this is the fifth book in the Wedding Planner’s Daughter series, it’s the first book that I’ve actually read from the series. While I felt it was implied that you should already know some of the characters, there was never a moment...

This read was definitely one on the fence for me. While the overall idea and feel of this book was promising, the actual story itself fell a little flat. For me, I think the biggest problem was “show, don’t tell.” This story seemed to do a...

This is actually my first novel by Stork. I’ve heard many good things about his books and I must say, after reading Irises, I definitely understand why. Kate and Mary are two sisters whose lives get spun around by the untimely death of their father. Not...

Going Underground is a story that deals with something that I do not have much knowledge on - which is sending nude pics via your cell phone. I have never done anything of the sort and can honestly say that I don’t know anyone that has done it either, unless...

I’ve seen this book around for a while and all seem to have about the same description for it - Pretty Crooked is a charming mix of Mean Girls and Robin Hood. After reading it myself, I can’t help but agree. Willa was a fun and...

My Beating Teenage Heart is one of those books that keeps you guessing through a good portion of the story. You get a good feel of the characters and the plot is pretty easy to follow, but there’s still just some loose ends in the story that makes you wonder...

When I first started reading If We Kiss, I was a little caught off guard by the tone from the main character. She seemed a little... immature. Needless to say, the first couple of chapters were a little rough to get through. Then, miraculously, it's told in the story that...

I have read a few of Noel's books in the past (read: Immortals series) and, although they weren't some of my favorite, I still enjoyed reading them. I've also heard a lot of people say that Noel's contemporary stories are a lot better than her paranormal, so I thought I...

I read Evernight when the story first came out and stayed with it, but the story just kind of dwindled for me. I don’t know if it was semi-crazy spins the book took, the characters or what - but there was always something there that kept me from thoroughly enjoying...

I want to start by saying that after reading this book (which I did a while ago but had to wait for the blog tour to post my review), I knew this could be one of those books where people would either understand it and fall madly in love with...
