Awesome

I absolutely loved this book! It has become one of my favorite YA series. Lots of drama, romance, and action to keep you interested! This is one of the few books I've read where most of the characters have a bog role to play. It does have...

Buffer

To me this book just served as a buffer between books that really mattered. Yes it was good with enough drama to keep it interesting, but nothing happened in the book. The first in the series had a major plot, and as far as I can tell the third book...

Cute Series

This is a really good book, especially if you have a couple of hours to kill. It's a fast and easy ready. Another perfect example of teen life, spoiled rich girls, boyfriends, and the outcast. Add in vampire school that teaches you to use your powers and the dark streets...

Definitely Different

A different twist on vampires makes this a good YA series. If you are looking for something different, but want to stick to vampires and the paranormal it is definitely worth the read. This is reality to a T in regards to teenagers, minus the vampires of course. ;) The...

Still disappointing

It was definitely better than Awakened, but still not at the standard the first few in the series set. It's almost as though nothing happened in this book except opening up new possibilities for the future. The series started off with such promise... The storyline just feels so forced to...

It's out there!

I rarely read a book that doesn't feature vampires, but I read the entire Uglies Series and enjoyed it. They are definitely out there, but that is what keeps you coming back for more. Scott Westerfeld has an amazing imagination that I think everyone should experience!

Decent book

I'm usually not a big fan of short stories, but I read it because it went with the series. With that said, it was a decent story. To be honest, I couldn't remember her from the series, so I did a Twilight re-read before reading this one. It was definitely...

Not my Favorite

I don't really like it when authors have certain chapters for certain characters. I prefer when the story just flows from start to finish, everyone together in the storyline. I mean the story is still great, and I did enjoy the book - it had a great ending. ...

Love this one

This one is action packed. I really enjoyed it, much better than New Moon. More in depth with the characters and it brings everyone together in a way. Wonderfully written, and again a seamless story line from start to finish. I love this series.

Classic Teen Infatuation

I will always love the Twilight series if for no other reason then it turned me onto paranormal romance books. I actually hated to read before I picked up Twilight, and now I've read more then 200 books in 3 years! How that happened, I work at...

New Moon

Okay, I loved how she put the name of the months on the few pages of Bella's depression instead of dragging out needless details of that time. It actually made me laugh. Aside from that, I really enjoyed the book. It kept me on my toes...

Best one so far.

This one adds more mystery to the series, and had me laughing out loud. Why not continue the series if you've come this far.. I mean it's just a couple of hours if that to finish a book. :) I wish I had kids like Raven and Alex around...

Another good book in the series

Oh Raven, what trouble you find yourself in. Alexander is sweet as always, and comes out of his shell a little more in this book. Such a fast and easy read but you can't help but love them. The books are just so different from what I usually read that...

Love them.

My favorite young reader series. Raven and Alex make a perfect couple, but he has to keep a close eye on her. she seems to find new ways of getting into trouble with each book. More of Jagers family member come to cause trouble and it's crazy in dullsville. ...

Another good book

I love the names of the towns, why use something standard when the description works just fine. We get to explore the world of Hipsterville and meet new and exciting characters in this book. Alexander is every vampire loving girls dream, and Raven is super lucky to hang out in...
