Crave by Melissa Darnell

I just want to say that I really like the cover. No idea why, I just really do. Crave had an interesting concept. Sure, there was the typical forbidden love thing going on, and it was full of secret societies, so it's not like it was a...

Something new and fun.

Shut Out was a nice change from all the paranormal I've been reading lately. Lissa was an interesting character - one that I thought seemed very realistic. Sure, she wasn't perfect, and I know some people think she handled the sex strike in the wrong way, but I think it's...

An intriguing novel.

I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer online through Simon and Schuster's PulseIt program. And yes, IT WAS FREE. AND LEGAL. Mara Dyer and her family move to Florida after an accident that kills her best friend and two others. Sure, there's nothing new there, but...

Yet another amazing novel by Maggie Stiefvater.

I got this book a few weeks ago from a very awesome friend who sent it to me =) I have no idea why it took me so long to finish it, but even when I finished, I had to take a few days to mull it over since I...

Two-Way Street

I had really high expectations for this book, but I think that's just because it sounded really good and I've read one of Lauren Barnholdt's other books. This book definitely didn't meet those expectations. The thing that bothered me the most was probably just the way...

A novel that had it all.

If I'm honest, I have no idea why I read this book. I'm not a fan of the cover at all, since it seems kind of boring and pointless and too brown to me, but I've read some other of Elizabeth Scott's books, and I think she's starting to become...

I feel like I've seen this too many times.

I can understand why people like this. I really can. But the fact is that I am tired of love triangles, I am tired of books where every single little thing goes wrong, and I am tired of narrators that make me angry to no end. ...

An amazing novel with beautiful writing.

The Iron King definitely isn't the best book in the series, but I still love it. Meghan isn't a character I often find myself annoyed with. Sure, she's naive sometimes, but for the past sixteen years of her life, she's had no idea any of these things existed. I loved...

Could have been better if it moved a little slower.

I didn't get a chance to read Carrier back when it was still on Inkpop, so I can't tell you how different it is from what it used to be. I can tell you that Meghan was a great character - a little unbelievable at times, but realistic when it...

An adorable novel with even more adorable characters.

Let me just start off by saying that "I only read paranormal" or "I only read fantasy" is not a legit excuse for not reading this book. I've never been a fan of published general fiction for some unknown reason, but I don't think I've met a single person yet...

Something a little too immature for me.

If I'm honest, I was already biased against this book. Most of you know that me and love triangles don't along so well. I don't understand the appeal. 90% of YA books seem to have some form of a love triangle, and it's starting to piss me off. I don't...
