Beautiful Cover, But...

Warning: Rants, ramblings, a unfavorable review, and some very light spoilers up ahead written by a frustrated, and very disappointed blogger. Read if you’d like. Comments will be read and are welcomed, but any particularly mean or possible argument-starting comments will be deleted. You have been warned. ...

Okay Book

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book in which there was such a bitchy, snobby, self-centered, egotistical girl as a main character. Those types are usually saved for the main character’s enemy. I also don’t think I’ve ever read another book which changed my feelings about the character and...

Beautiful

I’ve been mulling this over for a long time. I’ve been wondering how to write this review for a long time, too. Because nothing I say can do this book any justice – I loved it. I loved everything about it. Everything from the characters, the plot,...

Amazing

I’ve heard tons of amazing things about Catching Jordan. Saw reviews on how gush-worthy and amazing it was. And, okay, I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about reading this. I’ve read a few books about girls who excel at sports, but everyone’s against her making anything...

Something's Missing

INCARNATE is one of those books that you really look forward to. It has that beautiful cover and compelling summary that makes you feel like you just gotta get your hands on it. But when you do, it all falls flat. And makes you wonder if you really did just...

Wong Message

The first half of the story was laugh-out-loud, smile-at-that-cuteness light, and fun. The author easily introduces us to a town filled with designer clothes, jewelry, expensive cars, and rich, rich people. At first, Willa’s entranced by the life of the rich and famous – kind of like a deer in...

*facepalm*

Let me just get this out before I say anything else: this series is addicting. Now, having said that, I think Goddess Interrupted, or rather just this whole series is the type of books that people are either going to love or hate. If you’re really in...

Wasn't the Book for Me

This is going to be a quick review; I’m going to cut myself off before I begin ranting again. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and, to be fair, I did read The Lifeguard after weeks (yes, weeks – plural) of disappointing reads. But still. The...

Confusing

I enjoyed Divergent. I really did. The way the author wrote and approached her story was fresh. I loved her take on a futuristic, dystopian society in which everyone lived according to their philosophical views. However, I felt like the author was… well, I felt like she left out on...

Wow

I seriously want to hug Elizabeth Norris right now. Really. The huge, bear-hug kind (just ignore how creepy that sounds). Because she is a genius. There’s something in this book for everything. The sci-fi elements are kick-ass amazing. I think this is one of my favorite books...

Fresh Take On Paranormal Romance

I’m really conflicted about this one. I’ve seen/heard all my blogger friends gush and rave over this title, and damn they made it sound really, really good. But upon reading it, I can’t help but wonder if I got the same copy from the publisher or not. There were some...

A True Mystery

Slide is a true mystery. It keeps you reading – clueless and near-frustranted – until the ‘big reveal.’ I really liked how the author described how Vee ‘slides.’ It was really clearly conveyed in just a few words, and I felt that opening with a scene in...

Just Your Typical Paranormal Romance

Dark Kiss was a disappointment. This is the kind of book that turns people away from all the angel/demon books out there. Scratch that, this is the kind of book that turns people away from the whole paranormal romance genre. This is the kind of book, though, that, while some...

Meh

Crave has a gorgeous cover, and an interesting publisher’s summary that really draws you in, and makes you want to read the book. It sounds really intriguing, to say the least. A chapter or two into this book, and I fell in love with the author’s writing....

Horrible Foreshadowing, Amazing Characters

Cinder is probably one of my favorite retellings and probably has one of the best ideas. I mean, a cyborg Cinderella? Cinder herself has got to be one of my favorite characters. She’s whitty, and quirky, intelligent and resourceful. She really can think for herself, and is...
