Do you think anyone has ever died from death-inducing cliffhangers?

Maria just loves killing us all with cliffhangers. Sometimes authors slack off a bit with the world building in the second book, but not Snyder. Her world building is perfect, because there is not too much that it gets boring, but not too little so that...

Not as good as my expectations

The Unnaturalists wasn't as good as I expected it to be. When I first read the blurb, I was like "Oh, endangered magical creatures captured in museums and a guy whose family is captured? Bring it on!" But then I was reading it and it was like.... meh. ...

Much more action :) :)

This is one of those books where, after you have turned the last page you either: 1. scream and cry because its over and the cliff hanger is so torturous 2. think (or yell, if you want) "oh. my. god. I need the next one!!!" or 3. punch a pillow...

The Alchemy of Forever

The Alchemy of Forever is the best reincarnation novel I have ever read. Okay, so maybe I haven't read that many. But still. The book starts in the 1300's, with Seraphina getting ready for a masked ball. Escaping the crowds with a very handsome boy called...

A very fast and fun read told from a boy/merman's POV

First, a little intro to our protagonist. Tristan is just your normal sixteen year old guy. He works as a lifeguard because as everyone knows, chicks love lifeguards, because "lifeguards are the more naked version of firemen - the girls just love the uniforms. In my case, the orange Speedo."...

Definitely a must-read

If you are a person who is a fan of automatons, completely crazy madmen, Victorians, and handsome nobles vs. ruggedly handsome villain, then you have GOT to read the Girl in the Steel Corset. Finley Jane is a commoner. I wouldn't say she's normal though....

From the moment I looked at the cover, I knew that I was going to love Croak. I mean, seriously. Take a good long look at it. There is a girl, who looks like she's got serious spunk, with a scythe slung over her shoulder. As soon as I opened...

Great book!

At first I was a bit annoyed with the author for switching POVs so much. 3 is pretty much my limit for the POV switching, but this one had FIVE POVs!!! Five!! But it was an amazing book all the same, and I adored it. It didn't matter that there...

It's impossible to go wrong with assassin nuns and daughters of Death...

I have always loved books about assassins. There's just something about them that is so interesting (yes, you could say I have a bit of a morbid curiosity), and this book definitely didn't disappoint. Ismae lives in 15th century Brittany, which nowadays is part of north-western...

Dante's girl

I usually don't read many contemporaries. After reading Dante's Girl, though, I am seriously reconsidering my opinion on contemporaries in general. This is a perfect, fun, light-hearted and sweet read. The romance was very sweet and just great! Every summer Reece (yes, it's a boy's name, but...

A great dystopian with virtual worlds, brother fights, super-senses.... need I go on?

I will attempt to explain the plot, but I'm afraid you might be a little confused. Don't worry, the actual book is nowhere near as confusing. In a very distant future, the world is ravaged by climate change, which, obviously, makes living a little difficult. Most...

Great start to a series!

I took one look at the cover and thought "WOAH. She looks like a kick-butt heroine." (I love good strong heroines). I had pretty much the same thought as he did: "What's that? You say you've got a Japanese Steampunk with mythical creatures, civil unrest, and a strong female protagonist?...

Dystopian meets every girl's princess fantasy = brilliant!

What do you do if you can't remember anything?

All throughout this book, I was thinking "What will happen next?!" First we need to find out who Miranda is, then we need to find out about her "family", then we need to find out..... yep, I will stop now. It is really easy learning about...

Not mermaids, Syrenas.

This book is told in the perspectives of two people: Galen, a Syrena (merman), and Emma, who is not exactly sure what she is. Emma and her friend Chloe are vacationing in Florida when she literally bumps into a guy with violet eyes, the only other...
