It Could Have Been Great

This book reminds me a lot of Anna and the French Kiss, without all the hot bits. This book is so clean I'd say any age can read it. We follow Grace, a girl from Nashville TN, which made me love her right off the bat as Nashville is my...

Seth

I remember reading this when it first came out, it was everything I was looking for in a book, great plot, girl finding her own strength, and hot alternative guys. I fell in love with this dark world, the fairies and the power struggle. I recently reread this book and...

My Favorite so Far!

This book takes a time jump of six years, so now Evra is a young man while Darren looks around one year older. Thus they aren't as close as they used to be in the third book. Every twelve years, the Council meets at Vampire Mountain, and Mr. Crepsley has...

Vampires!

This installment is a lot more graphic than the first. There was a lot of foreshadowing, but I think it was necessary. This is one of the goriest children's books I've ever read. Mr. Crepsley decides to return to the Cirque Du Freak. Darren helps...

I received this book in exchange for an honest review* This book surprised me! I wasn't too sure what to think by the blurb, it sounded like a good read but then again it was so vague... but let me tell you now; this book is so...

Just Wow

This is one of the only series that does make me think and that sticks with me long after I've read it. This actually was my first time reading this installment. I've still never read the second, I don't plan to either. It's all just so sad and terrible but...

Cole...

This was better than the first installment. But sometimes Cole still bothered me a little. He broke up with her but was still all over her. He just rubs me the wrong way. He wouldn't listen to Ali about the visions at all. I still love...

Creepy Read

To me, this one wasn't quite as good as the first two. Darren, Mr. Crepsley, after a little convincing, Evra leave the Cirque Du Freak after a Vampire General (also Crepsley's dear old friend) arrives with some very dire news. They arrive in a quaint town and stay at a...

Holy Smokes!

I bought this book solely on the cover, it was stunning and the following novels with the two guys... yeah. These are actually some of my favorite covers ever. They are dark, gritty, and again, the guys are very easy on the eyes. ...

Even Better!

It's been a wee bit since I read this book but what I remember most is the relationship between Katy and the ever so perfect Daemon. They go through so many ups and downs and with Blake (or was it Bilbo? Bob?) coming into the picture, things get worse....

Holy Daemon!

loved this! It was fast paced and the hot and cold relationship between Daemon and Kat had me in love. Daemon is just wow! I don't usually swoon over book guys but Jennifer L Armentrout makes me every time! First Roth and now Daemon. I wish these guys existed!...

The Next One is Worse

This is going to be a short review as I don't really have too much to say. I hated this book, I fell asleep trying to read it twice and even then found myself cleaning the house instead of picking up this book. I finally just made myself finish, hoping...
