Gritty, Fast-paced, and Brilliant!

MY THOUGHTS I picked up this book, expecting a dystopian, but while this book had dystopian elements, this book is incredibly realistic. And I loved it! This book takes place in a walled city, obviously, full of crime and poverty. It's a horrible place to...

Interesting, But Not Necessary to the Series

MY THOUGHTS I was actually disappointed by this book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Nick has been having flashbacks of a past he can't remember. All featuring a girl covered in blood. Nick is wondering who the girl is and...

Not as Good as the First

MY THOUGHTS This book was very different than the first book! I didn't like this as much as the first book, but this is still a very great read! Charlie is now Queen of Ludania, after defeating Sabara, but Sabara isn't dead. Sabara is living inside...

I'm So Glad That I Picked This Book Up!

MY THOUGHTS When I'm about to start a book, I prefer to not read the synopsis. Do I read the synopsis when I add it to my TBR list, a little, yes, but by the time I read the book I have forgotten what the synopsis said. I...

Loved Everything About This Book!

MY THOUGHTS A glimpse at the synopsis, and one might think that this is just like every other YA book. While this book can be predictable at times, it's actually a very unique and enjoyable read! This book focuses on Becca, a very smart 17-year...

New Take on Mythology

MY THOUGHTS I didn't really know much about this book, going into it. I knew it had something to do with mythology and that's it. I ended up finding an enjoyable read with lots of mythical elements! Zephyr has been stuck in Tartarus for the...

I'm So Happy That I FINALLY Got to Read This

MY THOUGHTS I read an ARC copy of The Madness Underneath back in late 2012. Imagine the pain when I finished that book and came across one of the worst cliffhangers! Of course, it became even worse when the next book, this book, didn't come out until 2015. That...
