A creative and original world, although a bit too slow for me

Let me start off by saying this is truly one of the most amazing covers I have ever seen. The second book is just as awesome, too. It’s definitely what attracted me to the book and after reading the premise, I was quite intrigued. I really liked...

An emotional and heartbreaking story you simply have to read

This one was definitely a sad one. And a serious one. Throughout the whole book, it really made me think about life and what really matters. We know the story: a tragic accident, lives hanging in the balance, emotions flying all over the place. The story is...

Great story about werewolves, magic, and romance with a lot of sizzling scenes

First of all, I love the original cover of this series and I don’t know why they changed it because now it looks bad! Even though my covers won’t match, I just had to get the original because it’s so pretty. Anyways, I really enjoyed reading this...

A very detailed, and slow-paced sci-fi with a little bit of action

I knew I wasn’t going to love this book ever since I first heard about it and I avoided getting it for the longest time, but I eventually gave in because I had to see for myself what it was all about. I believe it’s safe to say that although...

So funny and highly entertaining, definitely a MUST READ!

Oh, how many ways can I tell you how much I love Of Poseidon?! Anna’s personality literally screams through this book and I was hooked after just two pages! Emma is such an awesome character, so snarky, stubborn and absolutely hilarious. I honestly laughed so many times while reading and...

Utterly confusing and pointless

Well, I just totally wasted a few hours of my life reading this one! Glimpse may seem promising and different, a dystopian world based on mental illnesses, but I felt like I had a freaking mental illness while reading this because I didn’t understand a thing! Where is this story...

A poignant, emotional story about self-discovery and passion that’s perfect for young readers

Let me start off by saying I adore Jennifer’s writing. She’s poignant, detailed, and really knows how to steam up a scene, especially given the constraints of the YA genre. There is a very sad element that remains throughout the whole story due to Mr. Hall’s death and I really...

An original tale of fantasy and magic that I couldn’t put down

Where do I even begin?! Maybe with how Leigh created such a magical and original world filled with darkness, adventure, and love in the throws of an ongoing war. Or how Shadow and Bone has such a wonderful female lead, Alina, who starts off frail and innocent, but slowly learns...

An amazingly original dystopian that will surprise and awe you

At first glance at this book, you might think the same thing I did – it looks like a book about aliens or something of that nature, not interested. Well, that’s where you’d be wrong, my friends! Starters is an insanely awesome dystopian novel with a dark and twisty plot...

OMG! Where do I even begin to express my love for this book?! Epically awesome, brillant writing, intriguing characters, and a unique plot – Katie McGarry shines in this debut novel. I swear, after I finished reading this, I immediately wanted to re-read it right away, and that almost NEVER...

A bit predictable, but still very entertaining

A dystopian world where people have super powers?! What’s not to love?! Here you’ve got an underground world where people are basically controlled by the Link network to the point where they’re just like robots living beside one another. Then glitches start happening to certain people and they discover what...
