Quite entertaining

Rose Zarelli is a high school freshman, who in addition to dealing with the novelty of being part of high school, is also mourning her father who died three months ago. She has issues - who wouldn't - and that makes me blunt, teary and quite irate at most times....

Loving the mythology

Greek monsters and goddesses - I do love the genre. Mostly what I have come across has been of demigods or something related. So, the first thing that ensnared me about the book was that it was having this dystopian-paranormal feel but set in the present world. There is New...

Good finale

Wow, that is how you end a series! I loved it - maybe not to the death - but yeah, I loved it enough. Tristan was turned into a vampire at the end of Covet and now he, Savannah and her dad are hiding out in the Arkansas mountain to...

A new vampire-witch novel

Must I say - I love when there is a twist in vampire stories. Why should the guy always be the vampire, not the girl? So, basically Crave pulled me for most of that reason - Savannah is a vampire going through her, er, vampire puberty and there is Tristan,...

Fabulous Finish

Oh my, the Watersong series has ended and as much as it hurts me to say goodbye to Gemma, Harper, Marcy, Daniel and Alex, I loved this book. It had all the things a good supernatural YA book needs - romance, action, a bitchy villain, lots of angst and a...

Exciting sequel - more deadly than earlier

Crown of Midnight, the sequel to Throne of Glass, picks up right up right after the first, with Celaena now the King’s Champion, which basically means she is the King’s private assassin expected to carry out every command with no question. She is as deadly and lethal as ever, and...

Engaging

Grasping at Eternity was a difficult but engaging read. The thing with the book is, so many things happen that you can't leave the book - I just had to finish it in one go. Though I found the book a bit difficult to follow at the start, with all...

Too rushed for my liking

Better than the prequel series

I don't know why I put off reading this series for so long. I had finished with Percy Jackson around a year back and while I liked that series, I didn't like 'love it'. Sure, the books were good, there is even a movie franchisee now, but I was still...

A new vampire read

Bloodspell is a bit of freshness in the vampire-dominated paranormal book world. It was refreshing to find a book where the vampire wasn’t the top of the food pyramid. The book focuses on witches and vampires as being age-old enemies so it had a bit of Twilight-meets-Romeo and Juliet feel...

Good fantasy

World-building in the book is good. The pace, however, is pretty slow. Also, the story repeatedly goes back and forth on the time and it gets confusing whether Syl is talking about the present or the past
