Love this book. Except maybe for the fact that Shay is ALWAYS the one who gets Tally in trouble, and Tally is ALWAYS the one who has to get them both out. Tally Youngblood has just given herself up to become a Pretty. Now she's living...

HALF-DRAGON GIRL, DOES THIS EXPLAIN?

Seraphina is a half-dragon. Now, you are probably wondering, how the hell do humans have children with dragons and not know about it (because her father didn't until she was actually born). Well, that's because dragons can change shape. They can appear human. And yes, before...

Amazing, creepy book

For me, what really made the book were the totally creepy photos that were placed throughout the book. It added a visual image and made it extra "peculiar". Things like a floating girl, an invisible boy, a boy with a face on the back of his head... do I need...

WOW

Wow. This word does no justice to this book (The English language is sometimes just not good enough.) The first thing that drew me in was the title. Three are dead, I am Number Four. That sounds so cool. And this book didn't disappoint. ...

WARNING TO ALL: ENORMOUS CLIFFHANGER. I AM GOING TO SPEND A WHILE RAVING ON ABOUT IT. No, the caps lock key on my keyboard is not broken. I just felt that this cliffhanger deserved all those capitals. I am a huge Percy fan...

And... Percy is BACK!!!

Percy is BACK!!! Except for the fact that he has pretty much no memory of where he came from, except for the name Annabeth... At the opening of this book, we find Percy at the ROMAN camp, where he is running from some evil gorgons who JUST...

AMAZING

Think of it like this. You have just finished the Percy Jackson series and are so sad because it's over and then suddenly you find out that there is a new series continuing on from it. What do you do? Well, read it straight away, of...

Trolls, but not in the way that you think...

When you think of trolls, you think of huge, green, warty disgusting things. Switched reveals a new truth about trolls: They, in fact, are not ugly, and they are a very cultured people. Switched is about a changeling called Wendy. When she was six, her mum...

Another great book from Clare

Everyone remember that HORRIBLE, GUT WRENCHING cliff hanger from the last book? Well, we finally get to find out what happened to Jace! *applause* In this book, all the main characters had someone they were loving. I mean, Clary's mum had Luke, Clary had Jace (although hers...

Better than I expected

I thought Fallen would be a shoot-and-miss for me. It wasn't that exactly, but it could have been better. Luce is sent to the Sword & Cross boarding school after she's seeing shadows everywhere and she's the suspect of a dead guy in a burnt-down house. It's...

Mercy

Mercy can take care of herself, thank you very much. She doesn't need anyone to do it for her. You know all those books where the female main character is so soft and always waiting for someone to save her? Mercy is not like that. I like that in a...

Giving your young body to old people... would you do it?

First of all: I love the cover. I don't know why. It just looks so cool. WARNING: This is not your average dystopian novel. It is a world that is not completely destroyed, but one where nothing is perfect either (duh, its a dystopian). ...

Struggling to rate this one, somewhere between okay and really liked it...

Wings was quite a good read. I am kind of struggling to rate it, since it was somewhere between pretty okay and liked it (3.5 stars? 4?) Meyer said that it was "A remarkable debut". Although I am struggling with the "remarkable" part, it was a good...

Awesomely action packed

Okay, so, Alex is a normal fourteen year old. He goes to school, and does completely normal stuff. At least, until his Uncle Ian is reported dead, from a car accident. They say he wasn't wearing his seatbelt, which just doesn't make sense because Ian was always CRAZY about seatbelts....
