Too Long

So, I didn't even know this was a thing until everyone was dogging it on twitter. When I saw that it was triggering people, I just had to read it and oh boy, do I have my opinion to share. Because I read the book, I didn't just go off...

The Movie is Better

This is one of the very few times I will ever say this but here we go.... I preferred the movie. Yes, I said it. I LOVE the movie, seen it at least 6-7 times since it came out and I even watched it again while writing this review. The...

Loved This!

Finally! A freaking book that looks down on drugs. I was so nervous when right off the bat, we get to talking about weed and drinking. I love Wendy Higgins but I do have my three strikes rule and I was scared that was where this was going. But no!...

Worth the Read

Okay, let's be honest here. Let's just get everything out in the open, shall we? No one and I mean no one is every going to replace Katy and Daemon. Never. That being said, I really like Luc. I've been interested in his character since I read the Lux series....

Meh

I enjoyed this rich world. I felt like I was there seeing the lure with my own eyes. I loved the characters, the writing, and the setting. The writing style was a little hard to follow at first but I took off with it quickly and it was just so...

Love This Series

This was so refreshing, to see a little snippet into the almost perfect Aiden's head, we get to see how truly hard it was for him to give Alex the Elixir and it also gives more insight into why he said he would never forgive himself. To see Alex this...

Perfect!

Alright warning time. As with most books that I read, this has been labeled problematic. Though this one is completely unfounded. Someone read a small part and took it out of context. I will explain more after the review. Guys!!!!!!!! I can't begin to put into words...

Sick of Double Standards

This is going to be more like a rant/review than just a review. I am honestly proud that I finished this book, it was so boring and needlessly long. I can sum up the book in one paragraph yet it's 436 pages long. I was so bored. So the book...

Loved This!

It's great! What I love the most is how dark and gritty the world felt. It was so cool because most of this book takes place in our world and yet it still feels darker. The author does a great job at world building. One of the best examples...

So this one picks up right where the other left off and don't worry if you haven't read the others in a while, this books spends the most time playing catch up. It will tell you ever major detail of the last books and even some of the minor books....
