Very cute and heart-warming book

Flipped is a book that is told both from the perspective of Juli and Bryce, who have been next-door neighbours for 6 years now. Juli has been in love with Bryce since he first moved in. Bryce? Well, let's just say that he thought she was creepy and weird. Now...

Not your average princess fairytale...

This is a very good book, and don't worry, it's not at all like your average fairy tale. Okay, fine, I'll tell the truth. If someone had said to me "Hey Louisa, there's this really awesome book called the Goose Girl and it's about a princess who goes to marry...

Sad that this trilogy has to end...

Lirael definitely prepared us very well for this story, because since we had the preparation for Abhorsen during Lirael, in Abhorsen we can plunge straight into the action. Lirael has accepted her fate as the Abhorsen in Waiting. She has thrown away her previous dreams of being...

Wow great ending to a great series

Spy Glass was probably my favourite in the Glass series. Opal has lost her magic. She feels like she's lost part of herself. So instead of devoting herself to a lifetime without magic, Opal decides to try and get it back. Obviously. ...

Another great book from Snyder

Maybe, if you have read my review of Storm Glass (granted, you may not have), you might have noticed that this time I rated the "Characters" five stars instead of four. Let me explain. In this book, unlike the first one, I was feeling more what Opal was feeling. ...

Continuing on from Yelena's adventures...but with a different heroine...

Okay, first thing you need to know about this book: Don't read it if you haven't read the Study Series. There are quite a few references to Yelena and stuff that happened in there, so be warned. I am feeling very sorry for those poor magicians...

Sometimes Legends are True...

This is a great book, that brings together all the legends and gods from lots of different cultures and times. It makes this book very original, and I think that this book took a lot of thought, but it isn't one of those where the idea is overthinked (is that...

First half was drier than Eragon...

Okay. I'll be honest. This book was not very great. It would have been great if it was about half the length that it was. I could get through Eragon okay, even though it was dry. Eldest? Well, read on... If I say it like this, it sounds okay-ish, listen:...

Amazing ending to an amazing series

Wow. I love this trilogy. Just thought I'd start with that. This was an absolutely stunning conclusion to the trilogy, the end of Yelena Zaltana's adventures to discover who she is and learn about her powers as a Soulfinder. ...

Amazing story

Every Other Day is an amazing paranormal book that I definitely recommend. It tells the story of Kali. Every other day, she's a normal teenage human girl (stress on the human). But all those days in between... she's not human. She is a hunter. She hunts paranormal creatures. Zombies, hellhounds....

Great sequel

I always find it weird when I pick up a sequel not long after reading the first one, and then the main character is all grown up. You know? It's like you keep imagining the character as you remember him/her, as a teenager or girl or whatever, and then suddenly...

It's okay, not the best

I'm very sorry that we are starting off on the wrong foot, but this wasn't the best book. I was okay, not completely amazing. I only finished it because I have never left a book unfinished and this was okay. So the book starts off, with...

Okay, I like the concept. Point for that, Stephenie. I mean, seriously. Weird silver alien things that possess human beings and stuff? YES, I like it. But the sappy love stuff? No. Just. No. It was more of that same old, same old, you know, in those...

Brilliant

This is an amazing book. As sad as this sounds, I can't wait for Monday so I can go to the library and borrow the next one. Sabriel is an eighteen-year-old necromancer. Yes, Necromancer, as in she can go into Death and bring dead things out.......

Definitely a Special Book.... Pardon the pun :P

Specials is another great book from Scott. Tally has literally become a super-human. She has lightning-fast reflexes, amazing senses, razor sharp teeth and nails, and she has the confidence that she didn't really have before. And she has a super-cool hoverboard (love those things, I want...
