A cyborg Cinderella

This is a retelling of the story Cinderella. Except in this book, Cinder is a cyborg and an alien. The plot was INCREDIBLY predictable. I suppose that's kind of the point, because we know about Cinderella, so we can draw parallels between the original and this...

Frex, this is really good!

I thought this one was even better than Across the Universe. In my opinion, I think the pot was the best part. It was so good, always introducing a new twist, so, just as you thought you'd got the ending, there was another plot twist. And...

When the heroine gets hit by a truck and killed in the first chapter, you know this is going to be an exciting book. Don't worry, it's not one of those that tells of the afterlife and how much it sucks and so on. I'll explain.... As...

Ethan is all grown up now...

Yes! When I finished the last book of the Iron Fey series, I was like "Nooooooo!!!" (if you don't get the image, think about luke from star wars after he realises darth vader is his father). And then this comes out, and I must say, I was a bit apprehensive...

Great start to this series. Can't wait to read the next one!

Honestly? Before reading this, I thought it was going to be a bit cheesy and kind of lame. I mean, genetically mutant kids with wings escaping from evil scientists and wolf guys? It sounded like one of those stupid TV shows that my brother always watches. ...

Is love a disease???

There was one sentence that I can remember from the book. "...his eyes are literally dancing with light, burning as though on fire." Emphasis on the literally. Now, I'm pretty sure the image I got in my mind was NOT the image that Oliver hoped to convey. It was funny,...

Liked the first one more...

I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy Crossed in lots of places, but it's not one of those books where you scream "OH MY GOD I LOVED IT!" at the end. I would have probably given it a 3.5 star rating for the plot, instead of...

Who would turn down a book about a girl who could kill with her touch?

I just read this book, like, half an hour ago, and I'm not kidding, I would read this over again, right now. Before you brush that off, the only time that I have ever wanted to do that before would probably have been after reading Divergent.Everything about this book screamed...

Eon is Eona.

The cover of this book looked really good, mostly because it 1) had a dragon on it, and 2) and a girl who looked like she could kick butt. This really appealed to me, because in terms of fantasy books, I am much more in favour...

The Magician

This book was a bit long. But don't be discouraged! It's got an interesting and engaging plot that is enjoyable. Nicholas Flamel, Scatty, Sophie and Josh have just arrived in Paris. But not on vacation. Not very long ago, Sophie and Josh were two normal twins....

Heartbreaking. I cried during this one.

When you read books set in the 1940-50's, they are mostly about Hitler in Germany. This one is not. It's about Lithuania, and how it was just as horrible as Germany then. Between Shades of Gray is about a girl called Lina. Before one day changed...
