Love can conquer anything

I guess it's hard to go to a book site and not rate Twilight and The Hunger Games in this day and age. So here goes my opinion on Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Twilight was thought to be a new concept when it first came out. Vampires,...

Pretty horrible

Hmmm.... I'm not quite sure what to say. I judged the book by its cover, and that is the sole reason I decided to read it.And so I read the description, and then I really got interested in the book and awaited patiently for the book to come into my...

Some refreshingly new concepts

The Pledge is a fast-paced read that I feel many readers will enjoy. I really loved how dedicated some of the characters were. You don't really see so much loyalty in books or life anymore other than the undeserved romance dedication that a lot of teen books are buying into....

Not my favorite

I didn't really know what to expect from this book when I first started reading it. The cover was beautiful, so I felt like I had to give it a chance. And I went from there. The main character Hannah is just not redeemable, which makes her...

So many unanswered questions.

After reading a book, you always have one reaction that sort of eclipses the others. Mine was:... Fury was a pretty good read. The characters were interesting, the plot was good, but...there seemed to be something lacking in it. See, the author describes the book as being...

Losing Faith

Losing Faith is about a girl who loses a sister that she never really liked. Faith is super religious; Brie is not. I think in some ways we can all relate to losing a family member we don't like and trying to deal with the stress of what to do....

Not my favorite, but pretty good.

I watched the trailer for The Seven Rays and I knew I had to read it. The music was amazing and the video was perfection. Watch the video, then decide. I don't know if I expected too much from this book, but it wasn't as good...

Takes some time, but then it's great!

I knew this book was going to be good. I mean, look at the cover; it's intriguing. The cover makes you want to read the book. That is a good-looking cover. But, aside from the cover, watch the video. The book video doesn't tell much of anything about the book,...

The Princess Diaries

The Princess Diaries is in my opinion, one of the greatest movies of all times. Anne Hathaway plays young Mia as she goes from nerdy invisible high schooler to chic, beautiful PRINCESS? Yep, that's right. She apparently is supposed to be a princess. The characters are all so different, the...

How far can music take you?

Another Good Fey Read

I love stories of fey and fairy tales alike. So when I saw Bitter Frost, I immediately picked it up and started reading. Bitter Frost follows the main character, Breena, as she turns sixteen, and is captured by a fey and taken to the fey world. She then finds out...

Unearthly

If Halo was a hit and a miss for you, I strongly suggest you check out this angel book before you completely give up. Where did Halo go wrong? It didn’t make sense. Unearthly gives the main character a clear purpose of what she is supposed to be doing. Clara...

I fell for this book

I loved the gothic writing of this book, and the setting, basically everything. If you were thinking about reading Falling Under, I would strongly suggest that you pick it up. Gwen Hayes does a fabulous job executing the plot and pulling everything together at the end. The book doesn't feel...
