Twilight

What I originally thought was just poor lighting due to a tight budget, was actually done in post production. I think it was a poor choice. It was suppose to represent the coldness of Edward, but it just makes the movie look cheap. The blue tone also just really bothers...

Twilight

Twilight is a hard book for me to review. I’ve read it twice and enjoyed it a lot both times, but there’s so much about it that bothers me, that I feel like this might read as a negative review rather than a positive one. It’s just hard to put...

New Moon

I’m a little surprised, because the second time around I ended up liking New Moon better than I thought I would. Aside from Edward being away for most of it, I just enjoyed the story more. Bella is pretty pathetic, but I couldn’t put it down. Despite being 150+ pages...

Breaking Dawn

I must have discovered some new found appreciation for Breaking Dawn during my reread, since I enjoyed it way more than I did the first time. I flew through it, despite it being the longest of the series, and I think it might be my second favorite of the series...

Radiant

I did read this one before I picked up Boundless, but I decided to review it after I read it, so I could comment on their tie-in. Well, it’s not essential to read this first, but I do still think it would be good to do it anyway. Radiant follows...

Hallowed

Unearthly left me wanting more, and only a few chapters into Hallowed I got more than I was expecting! Clara is worrying about what it means for her to have failed her purpose, and she’s plagued by a new vision. Is it a new purpose? Or is it just a...

Unearthly

Finally an angel book that I really really enjoyed! It wasn’t cheesy, and the religious aspect wasn’t overdone, in fact it was barely mentioned, like angels are just another supernatural entity. Clara, our main character, is a quarter angel and she’s just received her purpose…kind of. She gets visions of...

Great ending!

Boundless is the much anticipated finale to the Unearthly series, and it mostly doesn’t disappoint. Clara, Angela, and Christian have all started their first year at Stanford where Angela’s vision has led them. Little do they know just how dangerous her vision turns out to be, and how little of...

Amazing!

My expectations were quite high going into Born Wicked due to the great book blurb, gorgeous cover and raving early reviews. Thankfully, it met and exceed those expectations! This is one debut you do not want to miss! I was immediately drawn into Cate’s narrative. She seemed...

Awesomely bizarre!

Don’t let the gorgeous cover fool you; this book is bizarre! ” ‘Did you kill your aunt?’ I ate the last bit of grilled cheese. I licked the grease from my fingers. ‘Probably.’ “ And that is how Hanna meets her mother! Well,...

Interesting, but weird.

The Believing Game is another book that I went into with no expectations at all. I just happened to have a copy, so I read it without knowing much about it or reading any reviews. I know I’ve said thrillers and suspense aren’t really by thing, but I did like...

Disappointing.

Well…that was a disappointment. Requiem is another unsatisfying conclusion to an otherwise great series. I fell in love with Delirium, and still enjoyed Pandemonium, although not nearly as much. I was hoping that the ending would return me to that initial love stage, but it didn’t. Honestly, all three books...

A good sequel.

The beginning of Pandemonium threw me off a little bit. Instead of picking up where Delirium ends, it starts a few months later, with Lena in New York. How did she get there? Well, the story jumps back and forth between the present, Lena living in NY, and continuing where...

Delirium is one of those books that was getting a lot of attention, grabbed my interest, but I kept putting it off. Now I must say if you have this one on your to-read, do it now! Do not wait! It will be well worth your time. I know there’s...

Great!

Sam is one of the worst YA characters I have ever experienced. Not that the author wrote her poorly, just the opposite. She is so real and I can definitely picture her clearly. She’s just a bad person. She’s mean, shallow, dishonest, and a bully. Her friends aren’t any better...
