Interesting, but not what I expected.

I'll admit that what first drew me to Fated was the gorgeous cover. Everything about it is gorgeous, and I give massive kudos to the artist. Just lovely. That being said, this is my first foray into Alyson Noel's books. Her Immortals series has been on my reading list for...

Fresh take on Greek Mythology

One of the things that initially drew me to The Goddess Test was the incorporation of Greek Mythology. I fully admit that I am a mythology nerd in all senses of the term. There is nothing that makes me happier than diving into stories about Persephone, Demeter and all the...

Not quite as good as the first.

I've been highly anticipating Goddess Interrupted ever since I finished the first book in the series last year! Aimee Carter took me away to a world rich with Greek mythology, but one that still held one foot strongly in the mortal world. This time I knew that I'd be able...

Ghostly goodness.

Amelia is a spirit, lost in the mortal world. Destined to relive the night of her death over and over. Not exactly the most pleasant existence. That is, until the night that she happens to rescue Joshua. I know that there are plenty of paranormal romance stories...

Creepy and compelling

Looking for an out of the box read? I'll happily start this review by saying that this book will satisfy that need. Phoebe Kitanidis has done it yet again, writing a book that will keep you reading well into the wee hours of the morning. My attention was caught instantly...

Not the best.

Definitely not what I was hoping for. A lot of the emotions in this book are deadpan, and the plot doesn't inspire a lot of excitement. Sadly, I didn't even make it to the part where there were even mermaids before I wanted to put this down. I nearly didn't...

Fabulous sequel!

I still can't believe that it took me so long to get to The Lost Saint. I mean, I really loved Bree Despain's first book. Grace and Daniel stole the show for me, and all I wanted to know was what would come next. After doing a reread of the...

Dark and beautiful.

Bree Despain is a masterful writer! The Dark Divine is a book that plunks you down into a roller coaster car, tightens the harness and takes off without even giving you a chance to think twice. From the very first page I was hooked and there was no going back!...

A pretty good dystopian.

After finishing The Forsaken, days later I am still thinking about that story. I always consider that a good thing. If a book causes me to remember it well after I finish it, that means it made a pretty significant impact. Still, my thoughts on Alenna's story are very jumbled,...

Not quite what I was hoping for...but still a good sequel.

This is going to be a really tough review to write, since I all but flipped out praising Kendare Blake's first book, Anna Dressed in Blood. I was so very excited to see what happened to Anna and Cas after the cliffhanger that Blake left for us in the last...

My Life Undecided was such a fun and quick read that I was honestly sad when it was over! I simply cannot find the words to explain how witty and hilarious this book really is, but I promise to try. Brooklyn, or Brooks for short, has trouble...

Emerson Cole. Amazing female protagonist!

Someone please pinch me. I'm pretty sure I've died and gone to book heaven and, if Hourglass is what I can look forward to, I'm not coming back! Wow, just wow. I apologize in advance for all the rambling that will ensue. This book is so fantastic, so amazing, that...

Shatter my heart! Loved this one.

This book blew me away. Shatter Me has undertones of dystopian fiction, but it is really its own entity. How do I explain this? Imagine that your favorite paranormal, superhero, and dystopian books were put into a blender to make one single book. That right there? That...

Scare your pants off amazing!

Number one thing I loved about Anna Dressed In Blood above anything else? Cas. Hands down, it's Cas. He is the best male character I've ever read! You know the brooding, mysterious boy that makes a debut in almost every novel? He is always the crush of the female character...
