Gruesome tale of death and survival

This is one of the more stranger books I've read, but it was unique in every way. Think Miss Peregrine's Home for Pecuilar Children meets anything Tim Burton can come up with--in a weird dystopian world. Got that? Okay good. :) The Call is not for the...

An Awkward Read for A Young Reader

What I Liked: The awkward love. I've always felt an odd connection to stories that feature awkward characters who do everything nerdy, and awkwardly--and mess everything up. Okay, that sounds crazy but I always found it to be more realistic than a lot of other types of love stories. Sometimes...

A Unique Retelling With A Healthy Dose of Snark and Humor

A unique retelling with humor on almost every page. I laughed out loud quite a bit--but what should have been it's saving grace, just barely saved a fairly slow moving story. Victoria Frankenstein aka "Tor," is a mad scientist...okay maybe she's not mad--but she is a scientist....

Love Me Never, is hands down one of my favorite reads of the year, so far. Witty. complex characters--with an equally complex plot make this story, a sure winner. What seemed like a story that was simply good for a laugh, was far deeper than it's...
