Creepy Desks Abound

I don't know why I decided to read Cryer's Cross, it's not the sort of book I normally read and I was uncertain about whether or not I would even like it. Fortunately I did! I thought Kendall was an interesting character to follow, and the story was intriguing. When...

Watch the movie first

It was not as good as the movie. That said, it wasn't terrible either, I enjoyed it quite a bit actually. It was funny and I enjoyed most of the author's little interruptions(and "Morgenstern's" as well) and immensely enjoyed reading my favorite movie parts(Battle of Wits, Inigo...

Unique

“I absolutely love the world created in Darkness Becomes Her! Love it! It's so luscious and intriguing, I loved learning about it. The minor characters were amazing too, my favorite being Violet. She was so cute and I loved her obsession with masks! I also liked the female lead, a...

Darkly Appealing

I didn't read this book for a very long time because I was unsure about whether I would enjoy it. It seemed like such a hit or miss book, I could either love it a lot or really hate it, so I just didn't read it. Finally, after reading a...

Wither

“I was so hesitant to start reading this book. I was extremely uncomfortable with the premise and wasn't sure if I'd enjoy the book because of it. One thing I did know is that I wasn't going to buy it(despite the gorgeous cover that I absolutely love!), so I decided...

Surprisingly Fascinating

It seems I am saying this a lot about books that I have put off reading for a long time, but this book was a lot better than I thought it would be! The main character was great, strong without seeming unrealistic and it was really interesting to read about...

Gothically Entrancing: Perfect Rainy Day Read

The whole time I was reading this book I found myself uncertain about whether or not I liked it. There were certain aspects about it that I loved, but it left me with a strange feeling that I'm not sure if I liked or didn't like. However, now that I've...

Gen Takes The Prize

What an amazing story! When I picked it up today to start reading it, a thought briefly crossed my mind to finish it today as well, not really believing that would happen. But it did! I could not put it down, I loved Gen, he was an entertaining and funny...

Not Scary Enough

To start off, this book is the opposite of something I normally would pick up. In fact, when I first heard of it, I never considered reading it. Because of that the whole reason I read this book was because I fell in love with the cover. I don't know...

Flapper Fun

Second book in a row that I read mainly for the cover, I think this is becoming a habit. This cover is gorgeous though, I love the expression on her face, her dress, the whole atmosphere of it. Which just so happens to fit the book perfectly. I haven't read...

Squarely in the Middle

Not the best book ever, but not the worst either. I enjoyed the growing relationship between Aurelia and Robert and with Aurelia and her people. I liked how this one was more about the people and less about Aurelia. There were still some times when I got annoyed at herand...

Sorta Kinda

What to say? I didn't love it, but I did like it, but not enough to really be invested in the sequel(to be honest I am so tired of books with sequels! Can't there just be one and be done with it!). There were some really...

Left Lingering

Linger has about a million awesome quotes for everything. So yes, I couldn't help but enjoy it. I loved the characters, especially the addition of Cole, he is awesome. I love how real their flaws and personalities are, it makes for a great book. However, I kept waiting and waiting...

Finally finished! I hadn't expected such a short book to take me so long to read! While I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and appreciated it for what it was, I unfortunately could not like it as much as I assumed I would have. I found many parts dull and the...

I'll Make a Man Out of You

I loved this series from start to finish. Witty and fun, great characters, unique well built world. It is a good introduction to the steampunk genre. This book was a perfect ending to the trilogy. Soundtrack: I'll Make a Man Out of You - Mulan ...
