One of the best!

I present the Dystopian Guidelines: The world as we know it has fallen. A few people came together and created a small congregation of a town. These people are segregated by something. There is usually some form of secretly corrupt government. One person...

YES!

I'd nearly given up on good young adult books. They were all the same. I would transition from one book to the next and it all felt the same. So I started reading New Adult books. And it was a nice change for awhile. Until the...

Great, of course.

I remember watching this movie on VHS at my grandmothers with my cousin while we wrapped Christmas presents. We would try to pronounce Hermione's name and giggle at how adorable Ron was. That was so, so many years ago, and now I'm finally reading the books. ...

loved!

This was my least favorite movie adaptation, but so far, it's my favorite book in the series. It was so interesting! I love Sirius and Remus. I love the look into James Potter's past. I loved the jokes and the parts that made me cry....

I actually liked the movie better.

I admit, I read the books after the movies were released. This was my absolute favorite movie so I was really excited to read it. And then I was disappointed when it was different. And maybe that's why I dislike the...

It was great and now I'm ready for the next.

"If you tell me not to, I will." "Well...me too!" -Basically Tris and Four." Yes. Their relationship drama gets the best of this book. But the action is even better. Most of it made me mad, some of it...

Just okay.

I don't remember her name, but the girl that is Mia's friend, set the tone of the book for me after she bounded into the hospital. She is bitching at her mother about not crying and being strong for her. How in the hell can you talk...

Steampunk!

Okay. I admit. This book was kinda awesome. If you can get past the 100 or so pages of not a damn thing. After all of that nothing, it gets interesting. This was my first steampunk book, and I'm not really...

Speechless

There was a time in my life where I was Chelsea Knot. I told someone something that someone else had told me and that person I told (flipped the story into something that it wasn't), in turn, told someone that was a part of the story that...

This could have been great.

I really loved the DUFF. It has been years since I read it, but I remember being completely wrapped up in the story and the writing. I figured I'd love Shut Out just as much. But, it wasn't half of what I wanted it to...

Cheeky, eh?

I remember getting this from the library when I was a child and sharing it with my cousin and we both giggled like the little girls we were. We thought nothing was funnier than a little boy running down the street naked! Then, I remember making my brother read...

I need more Varen.

Okay, I am being super picky. Yes, the book was good. (Kinda slow. Lots of time in Isobel's head). Yes, just as creepy as the first. Yes, I still want the last one. Yes, Pinfeathers is a very...

Only good.

Kelley Armstrong kind of has the Sarah Dessen effect going on. She has a set way a book will play out and she just uses that for all her books but changes it up a bit. Different characters. Different setting. And no matter...

Interesting. Something new.

Oh, man. I didn't think I was going to like it there for awhile. A was such a careless person with a few of these peoples lives. But that ending I loved. And it was such a new...

Really good!

I really enjoyed Burning Blue. I was surprised it was from a male's perspective when I started, but I liked that. It's kind of a messed up story. I was really pissed when I found out exactly what happened and why. ...
