Rainbow, between me and you it just doesn't work!

"You called me Simon before." "No, I didn't." I hate it when I dislike popular books. People enjoy them and rave about them all over the Internet, I get all pumped and then... Meh. Still I don't believe that I disliked this book because of the...

Four Londons and a magic coat?! I'm in!

"No London is truly without magic." I love this series! SO SO MUCH! There are so many instances of foreshadowing that made me squeal with absolute delight!! I love the characters and Kell/Lila is my ultimate bookish OTP of all time! "What was...

great premise but too much instalove

The premise was interesting, the pace was fast and I found it an addictive read but I guess that wasn't enough. When A falls in love with Rhiannon the story ends. It is just the two of them being all stalkery and cheesy and not romantic at all. I don't...

FANTASTIC premise POOR execution

This book didn't work for me at all. The romance was too dry, I didn't care for the main characters, I didn't root for them. As I always say when writing a romance the task of the author is not to show me the love but...

The world building would be fantastic... If only there was one!

“We women are a sad lot, aren't we?" "What do you mean?" "Strong enough to take on the world with our bare hands, yet we permit ridiculous boys to make fools of us." I picked up this book one night that I was feeling blue...

OMG!

OH MY GOD! Just... Wow! This would have been the perfect Halloween read if you ask me. That ending gave me the chills! Terrifying!

could have been much better!

I liked Anna, the badass villain! I disliked though Anna, the ghost involved in an out of place romance and whose role changes drastically throughout the story! Could have been much better indeed! Still her backstory was amazing and the horror truly terrifying!

even better than Cinder!

4.5 I loved this book more than I loved Cinder (and I did love Cinder so much!). Once I got the hang of the action it took me a day and a half to go from its first part and the ending. Scarlet was an awesome character...

moving!

I was going to rate this book 3 stars. I already knew what happened to Melinda so it kinda spoiled the suspance for me. I couldn't wait to get to the point in which the story would get "juicy" so I rushed the first part. It was my fault...

"I'm going to make it a law that the correct way to address your sovereign is by giving a high five." I've tried so hard to convince myself to rate this book 4 stars. I've loved this series and Cress' ending left me drooling over the awesomeness...
