Not What I Was Expecting, But Very Interesting Idea

MY THOUGHTS This book was not exactly what I was expecting. I was expecting a book with more life-threatening dangers and murder mystery. Yes, there was a murder mystery, but it wasn't as face-paced and dangerous as I thought it would be. The murder mystery mainly including a...

A Great Witchy Read

MY THOUGHTS This was a very interesting read and I liked it! It is very similar to many other YA paranormal books, but this was still an enjoyable read! Indigo (Indie) is a popular cheerleader and has a pretty normal life, excerpt for the fact...

A Unique Thriller

MY THOUGHTS I usually don't go for thrillers, because most of the ones I read seem to be the same thing, but this was a very entertaining read and much more different that other thrillers out there! Lexi and Ava are twins and were adopted...

An Amazing New Mythology Series!

MY THOUGHTS My knowledge of Indian mythology is very limited. All my knowledge of Indian mythology basically comes from the Tiger's Curse series (To be honest, my knowledge of mythology from any culture comes from books). So, I really wanted to see more of a lot into this...

A Quick, Feel-Good Read

MY THOUGHTS I was drawn to this book by the fact that it's from fourteen perspectives (one of which is a squirrel!) and they're basically shipping a couple together. I was really interested in this book because of the squirrel, but I'm also a shipper at heart, so...

One of the Best Books I've Read This Year!

MY THOUGHTS I've been wanting to read this book for a long, long time. I added it to my TBR list back in 2013 when it was still titled Can't Get Next to You. The title changed, it got that AMAZING cover (probably my favorite cover of all...

Must Read for Lunar Chronicles Fans!

MY THOUGHTS I was kind of upset about this book coming out at first. Not because of the book itself, but because of the timing. I wanted Winter to come out instead (I'm still in denial that i have to wait until frexing November!). I was dead set...

Not as Amazing as Legend, but Still a Great Book!

MY THOUGHTS This book was definitely not what I was expecting. I didn't like this book as much as I hoped, but I did end up liking it. The main thing that surprised me about this book was how dark it ended up being. The...

Better Than the Trylle Trilogy!

MY THOUGHTS I actually enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would! I liked the Trylle trilogy, but I only gave the books three stars each. I don't know if my tastes have changed or if this book was just awesomer than the Trylle trilogy! ...

A Great Conclusion to an Amazing Series!

MY THOUGHTS I loved The Madman's Daughter! Her Dark Curiosity was a bit of a letdown, but this book most certainly wasn't! On the run, Juliet, Montgomery, Lucy, Edward (who is deathly ill), and Balthazar, make it to a very remote Scottish home (thanks to...

MY THOUGHTS This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, mostly because I loved Michael Grant's Gone series, but I only thought that this sounded like such an interesting book! I was sort of mislead, though, because I was under the impression that this...

A Great YA Horror With NO ROMANCE!!!

MY THOUGHTS I'm not very familiar with the story that this book is based off of, but you don't necessarily have to be in order to enjoy this book! This book was disturbing, creepy, and I loved it! One of my favorite aspects of this...

A Great, New Dystopian

MY THOUGHTS I just have to start off with saying this: This is not another Hunger Games. I see a lot of reviews complaining about how similar this book is to The Hunger Games and how this is just a copy. Yes, these books are very similar to...
