Enjoyable

Possible spoilers ahead. "You're a hero, Penryn, whether you like it or not." This will be a short review since this follows Angelfall. World After is much like Angelfall (obviously, it's written by the same author and is a trilogy). As...

A Unique Story

Possible spoilers ahead. Angelfall is most definitely a unique story with a dark twist on angels and the apocalypse itself. I always used to wonder when I would come across a book that would make it seem like the angels were the bad guys, and, well, I...

A Captivating Story

Possible spoilers ahead. A Court of Thorns and Roses is a very engaging story, throwing us into a new world of faeries and humans. The writing style of the author is captivating, making it hard the book down. I happened to be at work when I started...

A Good Spin on Mythology

Curse of the Sphinx is a somewhat fast-paced story with one of my favorite types of mythology, starring the wonderful and somewhat sheltered Hope. The prologue was wonderfully written, but the following couple of chapters became bland. I feel like I should have had some sort of emotional connection to...

I Love This Series

Heir of Fire is a great third installment to the Throne of Glass series. It continues our journey through each character's life after Celaena left for Wendlyn courtesy of Chaol who didn't quite understand where he had "tossed" his friend until she actually left. I really love...

The Biggest Reveal Ever

The biggest reveal ever. I will never stop subconsciously fangirling about this book and this series until my last breath. Crown of Midnight is the action-packed second installment of the Throne of Glass series and one of my most favorite. Why? Well, maybe you should read it...

Totally Worth Reading Over and Over

Throne of Glass is the epic and action-packed beginning of a greatly unique story about the amazing, strong character, Celaena Sardothien. For those who haven't read The Assassin's Blade, I really must say that you should read that first to get the background information and the introduction to the new...

Disappointing

** This review is based off of the new, revised copy of Nirvana. I had received a copy prior to this and they made changes. Okay, so this was most certainly a completely different story compared to what I read in the beginning, but did it...

Exhilarating

Sanctuary Bay was a title I was really excited to read and I admit that I hate that I pushed this to the back of my queue due to the release date (I had received an invite to read this last year). As someone just getting into the thriller genre,...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Why, man, why?! I'm gonna start this review off extremely honest; I have NO idea why I put off reading this for so long. I've seen a few good things about it which caused me to buy the book from Barnes and Noble a few months...

An Emotional Read

When approaching a new book that deals with a character and mental illness, I'm always cautious. With people romanticizing mental illness around the world, it makes me extremely suspicious of books like this. However, I was still interested in reading this and was glad to be able to finally pick...

A Disappointment

Welcome to the new Twilight. *Sigh* Angels of Moirai had me at its summary since I'm one to fall for the whole angel-like stuff in books, but did it live up to my expectations? I want to first talk about the characters which, in...

An Interesting Premise

I used to read a lot about how to write well and I always saw people talking about how the first 10 pages really count. As an author, you have 10 pages to capture a reader before they decide whether or not they want to continue. This book definitely piqued...
