The Vanishing Game review

When it comes to creepy books it seems to me there are three types of endings: 1) the open ending, as in, did something actually happen or is the narrator just some kind of crazy?; 2) the paranormal ending, a.k.a it was all a ghost/vampire/were-rabbit; and 3) the ending that...

Mirage review

I found Mirage to be similar to Above World: good, but not entirely memorable. I was pretty lost when I started reading. I couldn't really remember anything from Above World. That being said, it wasn't too hard to get into the story again. The characters are...

Star Cursed review

Star Cursed was pretty comparable to Born Wicked for me, but somewhat slower. For the most part, the pace was decent, but it did start to drag a few times. And when that happened, instead of easing into a new conflict, something would just happen. I don't...

False Memory review

en romantic. I couldn't get into the romance because it all felt too fake. I believe it was real for the guys, but it was almost like Miranda was just going with the flow. In the end, I like the guy she (kind of) chose, but more for myself than...

Endlessly review

It's always difficult to write a review for the end of a series I enjoy whether I loved it or hated it. Endlessly lies somewhere in the middle leaning towards the side of loved. Most likely, my mood affected my reading experience, but I felt almost like...

Thousand Words review

Thousand Words was a solid read. I was never bored and Brown really made me feel for Ashleigh. I couldn't believe some of the things Ashleigh went through. I mean, I suppose I can believe since I've heard news stories and such on the matter, but I'd...

City of Bones review

I think it's safe to say I've jumped on the bandwagon. First of all, I'm definitely a Jace girl. I mean, I like Simon and I really want to give the poor guy a hug, but he just doesn't quite do it for me. Which is amusing...

The Enemy review

The Enemy was a bit of a hit and miss for me. I found myself really getting into some parts of the story, but other's not so much. First, let's talk about the narration. It's written in the type of third person that allows it...

Unravel Me review

I was arguing with myself nearly the whole time I was reading. I really wanted to see Juliette's side of things, but I just couldn't get down with her woe is me attitude and self-loathing. In Shatter Me she had the crappy life going for her, but I...

This is What Happy Looks Like review

This is What Happy Looks Like was cute, but I was kind of hoping for a little more. First of all, for a romance that started through email, there was a significant lack of them (emails). There was some at the beginning and then one before the...

Taken review

This book pulled me out of a reading funk I didn't even know I was in. Lately the books I've read have either bored me or just been unimpressive overall, so I was surprised when I found myself nearly halfway through after one day of reading. ...

Story's End review

I found Storybound to be entertaining, but I didn't particularly enjoy it. I was hoping for a little more from Story's End, but it turned out to be more of the same, sadly. It took quite a bit for the world of Story and the...

Code Name Verity review

Oh, Code Name Verity, what to say about you? The thing is, it's a good book. I liked the writing and storytelling, but I was bored nonetheless for 3/4 of the book. The fault is my own when it comes to that, though. See, historical...

Infatuate review

review Infatuate was a fairly good sequel, but I was also a little disappointed. I think part of that is due to the fact that I wasn't expecting much from its predecessor, and was pleasantly surprised. This book has the sequel-relationship curse. You know...

The Boyfriend List review

It's kind of hard not to love Ruby Oliver. Sure, she has her quirks and sometimes I just want to sit her down and give her a talking to, but most of the time she realizes she doesn't have to blame herself for everything and maybe all the...
