Halflings

Thank you Goodreads First Reads for my review copy! (I actually won! Yay!) I was intrigued with the blurb of Halflings--I kind of got tired of angel books, but this one sounded interesting so I figured I would give it a try. Personally, I...

Fantastic!

I love it when a sequel eclipses the first book in a series--especially when that book is as great as Obsidian! Jennifer L. Armentrout, once again, catapults you into a tangled web of lies, danger, and desire. And once you manage to fight your way out of that web, you...

Another great read

This is the first stand-alone I have read by JLA, and I will say, I'm disappointed she hasn't decided to make this into a series. There were plenty of questions left unanswered so that she will have the opportunity to do so, but I will find myself disappointed if it...

What A World!

I got sucked straight into this world from the first page. The world is crumbling around June and Day, and the setting just came to life. I could smell the stink of the Lake area, feel the burning of the sun as it beams down on LA, hear the protesting...

Couldn't Finish It

I could not finish this book. When I first read the blurb for this book, I was so excited for a thriller with a female lead in the young adult spectrum. I mean, what's not to like if it truly is Bourne meets The Godfather. However, I...

Enjoyed it!

I have been sort of obsessed with books that reinvent the Hades/Persephone myth lately, so naturally, Abandon was on my list of books to read. After reading it, I'm sort of stuck on how I feel about it. I love the storyline that Meg Cabot puts forth and I think...

Great contemporary

I really enjoyed reading Such A Rush. The story was unique, and even though I'm nothing like Leah, I still felt connected with her. She was in a hard circumstance, and yet she managed to pull through and persevere. I loved watching her gain more and more...

I love this series!

OMG! Jennifer L. Armentrout is my hero!!!! I read Half-Blood, Pure, and Obsidian in less than 3 days, and all I want to do is re-read them! Since I figured I'd rant and rant about all the good things about Pure, my sister and I decided, instead,...

Okay but I miss Emerson

My experience with time travel and books is pretty small, in fact, the only one I had read before Myra McEntire's series was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. But, if every time travel book is as interesting as the Hourglass series, then count me in! ...

Meh

I found these short stories interesting to read--you really get some insight into some of the characters in the Fallen series. But, I found when I was finished, my overall reaction was merely, "meh." Surprisingly, the best part was Roland's short story. If I...

Once again Cassandra Clare has written an sultry, seductive, and stunning novel! From the very first chapter I was hooked, and I read the book in one sitting!!! This will definitely be one of those books I read over and over again. Tessa is a great heroine--spunky...

Love!

The second installment in The Infernal Devices series is a MUST READ! I didn't know it was possible, but I love Jace even more than I did after reading Clockwork Angel. In this book, you really get to see his character develop--and you learn so much about...
