Finally!A ray of hope for the Vampire fiction genre! :)

A story with good potential

An ARC of this book was provided via Netgalley. The delight in reading this is that you feel as if the stories are over before they have even started.And every single story leaves you a lot to think about.Aside from the delight,there is also confusion,since you...

Wonderful story,but the ending and writing style killed it.

ARC received from Netgalley for review purposes. Ironskin is supposed to be a re-telling of Jane Eyre,steampunk style.By steampunk,I thought that it would mean more action and cool machines,but trust me,if you're thinking like that,then you're going in the wrong direction.But then again, it IS a re-telling...

Recommended as a borrow-from-friend material,i.e,if you must read it.

The plot: This is where I found most of my dissappointments.The plot's lack of uniqueness was clearly visible in my eyes.Anyone who has read a lot of YA dystopic novels this year can mark this out.Especially one dystopian novel in particular,i.e,Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me. If you've read Shatter...
